Now that we're done with introductions, it's picture time! I hope you don't mind the crappy lighting and probably not so focused 4am picture-taking skills of mine but here goes... and be prepared, it's gonna be a long one..
So I had this huge craving to buy some silver and metallic markers today. I decided to go to my nearby art store (and btw, when was it renamed from The Art Store [coolest name ever] to "Blick"?? blech.) Anyway, I go there and find out that the only metallic painter's markers they offer are silver and gold colored, how original. I'll have to seek out Pearl Paint for some more options.
I've also been working on getting all my custom orders out (the ones I mentioned in the very first blog, oh so long ago). I finally finished making the brown warmers for BeadGal from Etsy (beadgaldesigns.etsy.com) They came out very pretty even in their simplicity.
And last but not least, I've decided to make some more cozies but this time for iPod nanos. Not exactly being "hip" about iPods, I had to consult my resident Apple expert (or rather, one who lives a few blocks away) and I've been so informed that nanos are the big thing. I'll most likely never get an iPod because I just refuse to be one of Apple's army.. too many white headphones, too little time to whack people. Anyway. Here are 2 cozies I've come up with so far. They dont have their buttons so they look a little funny and I've rethought my original design to have a more robust button hole which happens to make it curl all funny-like. The good news is that I found out I could make a cozy in a train ride and with enough time to spare a look around at people pretending not to be staring at me. :)
That is all for now. Still in big preparations (or not such big preparations..) for the The BIG Art Show
Keep your calendars marked for this event where I (from Mellowbeing's Shop) and Jessica (from Haasome Goods) will be selling the products handmade madness!
p.s. I just noticed I use a lot of parentheses in my writing.. (oh well).
