This weekend, I attended the wedding of a dear friend, and his beautiful compliment of a partner. We went to Papersource, to pick out the card and pens, then went to town, in the hopes we were spelling all 90 peoples names correctly! Next were the chalkboards. I am really pleased with the finished pieces, but mainly just ecstatic that the wedding went beautifully and was so much fun to be part of.
Sometimes I get a bee in my bonnet, and I have to execute some of the not so practical ideas I have. This time I decided to make it a little more challenging, by making a Summer entertaining round tray, out of an existing very inexpensive product. I went to the 99 cent only store and perused the aisles. I found a round pizza cooking tray, this great gridded blue poster board and some graph paper. After spray painting the tray, I painted one of my favorite bloom shapes in the centre, using Windsor and Newton acrylic paint - here is how it turned out.
I am a big fan of organising myself, by placing similar items in small bags within my larger bag.
Thankfully, Society 6 started making lovely pouches - in three very useful sizes.
This is my petal pouch - which I absolutely love. Useful, hardwearing and pretty
Last week I was working on a shoot that was scheduled to wrap at 3:00am. We were outside and it was particularly cold for LA.
I needed to dash out for something locally. Thankfully whilst on my run, I flew by a Starbucks, which knowing I would need to stay awake and alert for hours to come, I stopped at. The cup handed to me made my day! It said "Color me Spring" on the side, and my mind was happily occupied throughout the rest of the cold night shoot
Last year I decorated some ceramic eggs and played with displaying them in a glass case. This year - they broke out and stood alone. I added two more designs to the group and sent out orders across the country!
This weekend I will be at the Good Eye Gallery, Merry Makers Christmas sale.
I have been elfing away (that is in fact a term), making one of a kind christmas cards, embellishing art prints and finishing up my latest project - laser cut jewelry!
Also on offer - some accessories for your tree, in the form of driftwood feathers, hand painted glass and wood baubles and ceramic bells!

This year I have added some driftwood pieces to my Christmas inventory. They add that natural touch to a tree that might be sporting a bit much glitter (not that there are limits on sparkle, especially not at christmas).
These will be on sale at the Merry Makers event on December 3rd and 4th, at the Good Eye Gallery in Eagle Rock!
Check out the LA TIMES gift guide and get to the Merry Makers Event to stock up on hand made, hand painted, and crafted unique gifts
A fresh batch of hand painted cards is on its way to Nuda Juice and Wellness in San Pedro, CA!
They get to mingle with some delicious healthy snacks and smoothies in a lovely location
Very excited to take part in a pop up show at the Kate Spade store in Pasadena.
My work got cosy with some gorgeous handbags. The colors and patterns complimented each other nicely.
The turnout was great, and some organized Christmas shoppers went home with original art and greeting cards.
