Free time is the best time.

I really love my free time. I value it greatly. Sometimes I spend it with friends or family but for the most part, when I get a chunk of time to laze around, I make stuff. I’m sure lots of people do. Some people like sports. Some like to garden. Some take weekend trips. Me? Most of the time I’d rather be home amongst my supplies, making something or organizing.

This weekend I got a little bit of both in, first there was food, drinks, cards, and laughs at Travis and Eric’s. So much fun it’s probably illegal somewhere..

(Travis makes the best Strawberry Daiquiris ever.)

Then on Saturday evening I decided it was time to sketch out and paint my galaxy princess! Snow White is my favorite so here she is. I might embellish the stars more. I’m not sure just yet. But I’m happy with her! I posted these photos to instagram as I went.

I’ve got some new fruity accessories for the shop but out of pure laziness I haven’t photographed them yet. Maybe I’ll go do that now! When they’re up I’ll have a shiney new post for you, but for now I’m gonna go drink some sweet tea in the sun and try to motivate myself to take and edit photos. 🙂 Hope you’re having a great Sunday!

Star stuff and happy early birthday to my blog!

The 16th my blog will officially be a year old. I’ve neglected it quite a bit. It’s not been updated monthly or even weekly, but I’ve said hello from time to time and never forgotten it. 🙂 Getting back into the groove of blogging hasn’t been like riding a bike. The blogging world is different now. Back when I began my ventures into blogging instead of being several million in number it was more like less than 10,000 at all, period. Wow, is my age showing? But back then we all wrote our own code. I completely designed my own website back then, in the time where flash was rarely used. Now I just try my best to figure out wordpress and get it to both look like and do what I want it to do. Oddly, it’s way more confusing than simply coding it in the way I used to. Then again, I had absolutely no responsibilities, bills, a child, or any real obligations outside of social gatherings at that age. WordPress works just fine for me. I just need to get comfortable with it.

NEW STUFF!!! YAY!IMG_6823IMG_6821

I have a few cute new items up in my shop. Alien, dinosaur, and poison apple rings…. that I absolutely love. They’re fun, cute, adjustable and make me smile. I find myself being drawn to 90’s style things. (Mostly because my teenage years were the 90’s.) At first it was a little weird to see it coming back into style, high-waisted jean shorts, floral print everything, aliens, peace signs, jellies, neon colors. But now I’m just stoked because I absolutely loved it all then and I love it now too. So… I’ve decided to flow with that creatively and see where it takes me.

And for fun these happened. Acrylic paint on wood plaques, for my son’s room. We love Adventure Time! (LSP is my favorite of this group.) I’m working on some Disney silhouette paintings for myself as well. But I’m one of those people who always have 20 things going on and 50 more projects I’d like to start. haha I think the technical term is: artist.

Anyway, I’m oh so happy spring is here at last (at least in California) and it’s probably my most inspired time of year. I will be back to update again. Hopefully with exciting new things to share. (Youtube vlogs or tutorials or some such nonsense, perhaps.)
