Monday Blog - SHARPIE Spotting!!

As a proud member of the 2010 Sharpie Squad, I'm always on the lookout for people using Sharpies. It's amazing how many people depend on their Sharpies everyday!

Honestly I have seen Sharpies used in many different businesses and by many artists to create unique and wonderful art....but I didn't have to look very far to find a young artist who has put her Sharpies to good use! Ali is my pottery student who I've been working with all summer. Of course she needed a personalized apron to keep the clay off her clothes while I sent her home with a fistful of Sharpies and a clean white apron and she came back with a work of art!

She asked me to collaborate with her on the design, so I added some details across the top and mixed in here and there.

Well, have you, punk, have you had you clay today?????

Saturday Blog: Song of the Day

I fell in love with Alexi Murdock when I first heard him on the soundtrack for the movie Away We Go. His CD "Time Without Consequence" is on my current top ten list. I know it's already 4 years old....sometimes I'm just a bit behind the curve, but it's still a great CD to keep in the air waves!

Friday Blog: Etsy Treasuries

I'm trying out the idea of creating a blog post everyday. I thought that by following a theme-a-day structure that it might make it a bit easier to keep up with. Well, we'll see about that. And, of course, I'm making it up as I go we'll really see about that.

Since it's late and I'm winding down for the evening, I've decided to do something relatively easy and highlight a few of my favorite treasuries that I've been included in this week. Please click on the link and browse the creators shop too - you're sure to find some lovely work that will inspire and tempt you!!

Here's a great collection by localcolorist titled " Art Deco Pink " love for Lorraine of TrinityDJ

Thursday Blog: This Natural World

My husband Don had a childhood rich with local amphibians and reptiles. He loves frogs, snakes, turtles, and all manner of creeping, crawling things. Today he came into the shop with a big smile and the announcement that he just saved the life of this turtle that made the mistake of trying to cross the get to the other side.

Of course, Abbey the Cat had to get involved....hmmmm what is that? She wasn't all that interested.

I would love to be able to tuck myself into a protective shell some days!
