Here’s a rant for you, just to get a little something off my chest.
This is going to be a negative, self loathing, complaint filled post, so if you’re not down with that, I suggest you wait for my next post 🙂
June is filled with fun things! Because of this, my shops will all be closed periodically.
Yesterday’s Arts Walk was intense, to say the least. I knew it was going to be a lot of work, but I had no idea of the events that would unfold. The last few have been rained out, and I was hoping that wouldn’t happen again, because I had been planning this for so long. Well, instead it was 95 degrees and clear, with the sun beating down on us, and no shade whatsoever in the Artist’s Lot.
I don’t do well on my own. It’s taken a long time for me to admit this to myself. For some reason, there’s a certain stigma attached to the idea that someone can’t be alone. I don’t care anymore. I can’t be honest with myself or anyone else if I don’t admit that.
A few weeks ago, my mom came and stayed with Eric and I for a few days. We were finally able to go shopping together for the supplies for the painted clutches that I mentioned a few posts back. We ended up hammering out all the details and I was really glad to see how excited she was by it. I showed her all the different clutch shapes as well as card cases, passport holders, and key chains. It all started to feel real once I purchased the fabric and vinyl. We settled on a few details that I was having a hard time making my mind up about (Thread color, velcro color, etc) and that definitely helped ease my mind.
Hooray! It looks like I’m heading to Arizona once again, with my sister and her boys. I’m really looking forward to it. This time, we’re going during the week, so I’ll have to put both of my Etsy shops on vacation, which can be frustrating. But as I don’t want to miss shipping deadlines, it’s a must.
I started out not being able to think of places I really wanted to visit this year, but the more I’ve thought about it, the more places are popping into my head. I was probably thinking too grand at first, but now that I’m thinking smaller, there are quite a few more than 5 places…
No 4 – Camping
I’m going to start my period on Monday. If you’re uncomfortable with this knowledge, I suggest you leave now.
Do you want to know how I know? For one, I recently went back on birth control, as a way to regulate my extremely random cycles. The other way that I know, is because in a failed attempt to take apart our Brita pitcher for cleaning this morning, I began to cry and also rage, wanting to throw it through a window and be done with it.
I’m really excited about this project I’m working on! I want you guys to be excited too so I’m giving a little sneak peak 🙂 I’ve been toying with this idea for some time now, but have been trying to figure out exactly how to execute it. I’ve had a lot of canvases sitting around taking up space that I haven’t really known what to do with. I liked them but didn’t love them. I thought about painting over them completely, but I liked them enough to not want to do that. So I added to them. Some drips, some splatters, and a lot of neon later, I present to you PAINTED CLUTCHES!!! Are you excited now?
