A friend of a friend has an online store, and they're joining some bazaars, and they've asked me to put a few items in their shop. So my sisters, mom, and I are busy making a bunch of adorable things. Well, adorable to us, anyway. Sometimes I'm baffled by the fact that nobody buys our paper goods when I would totally snatch them all up and take them home, grinning to myself.
Here's what I've been up to. Stamping on vintage book pages:
Yesterday I made some bruschetta. Seriously, you guys, I could eat this every day of my life.
Ina made greeting card sets that rock my socks:
And then I made stickers. You see that owl? Yeah, Ina carved that stamp herself out of an eraser. Yep.
I had way too much fun packaging these things.
I'll keep you all updated about the bazaars..when and where, and important stuff like that.
(Oh, and also... The Cherry Blossom Girl favorited my flickr photo! I could just die. )
Now it's off to try and finish some homework and then paint some more.
We went to the beach last July with some friends, and one of them took photos with a tiny plastic camera, that had a waterproof case. And the photos all turned out so nice, so I thought I'd share them.
I love this place with my whole entire heart.
(and yes, I am aware that each photo is a different size. I do not know why.)
It's Friday! I remember when I used to say, "It's finally Friday," but I can't seem to feel very joyous about Fridays since all the days of the week just seem to come hurtling toward me and the next thing I know, it's Sunday again. Wasn't it just Sunday? Ugh.
Ina made something for Freebie Friday onPink Teacup, and I'll be posting it later tonight:
This is going to be on a lot of things I'm making in the future. So awesome. Thought of it randomly while thinking of love.
This is a postcard I sent today, that only makes sense for me and the recipient:
And I sent this to a super-sweet girl:
I'm going to make a bunch of these papercut cards for the shop:
Snapped a photo of my mom's thread tin:
And then I made myself a sandwich. It's yummier than it looks. Sorry.
I'm trying to convince my mom to make these coasters to sell. I think they're pretty, do you?
And now I think I'm going to go belt out all the Pocahontas songs I know. I just feel like it.
Today was one of those good long lazy Sundays, and Ina and I sang some songs, slept, ate, and slept some more.
And then I played around on Powerpoint and Scribbler and Pixlr. Good substitutes for Photoshop.
I've decided to sell some papercuts. I'll do custom orders, and since I don't have Paypal, I'm going to accept payment in the form of Fuji Instax Mini film. I've used up my two packs, and I can't stand not using my camera. It's too great to just sit around, sad and alone. Please, if you want me to papercut anything at all, be it peanuts, astronauts, or seven raccoons having a bonfire party, I will do it for you and my Instax mini.
And also, I found out how to do a film grain effect on Pixlr! I am so excited. Ha.
And I was playing around on Powerpoint, and it turns out you can do all those fancy layering effects. Ahhh.
It's a lot of fun. And I think I need Photoshop, so I can digitally color my art, but I will try to be patient and wait it out.
Here's a cover Ina and I did of Shy That Way. I love love love Tristan and Jason. They are perfection!
It's a perfect Sunday song.
I wish there was a way to record ourselves without our faces. It's just so awkward! Sometimes the sound is perfect but our faces are weird, and sometimes we look perfectly normal and then get all squeaky or something.
