Happy New Year folks!

I must say 2011 was a pretty good year for me.

  • I kept a steady job all year long, which makes it my first job that I had for this long in about 6 years. 
  •  found a great freelance gig that I get to work on some awesome posters for and something else that I can't say until the new year! 
  •  have my work being sold in a store for the first time ever. Plus the store is totally kick ass and it just feels right to have my work there. 
  • organized a craft fair this year! How awesome is that? I think over-all it was pretty successful besides a few minor things. 
  •  had a table at Hal-Con this year and it was fun! 
  • am officially registered as a business this Spring and now I have no idea what to do for my taxes! :C But I'm sure I'll figure it out!
  •  also did a few small design projects for friends, pro bono
  • was asked to design my cousin's wedding invitations for her wedding next Spring! I can't wait to post pictures of them! I am super happy how they turned out and they look great printed!
  • praticipated in the Mosaic for Mental Health art exhibition
  • started acrylic painting, which I now love to do! I still need to get better at it, but it's a lot of fun and I'm happy with what I have been doing

That's all I can think of right now!I met a lot of awesome people this year due to branching out and participating in events and putting myself out there.

In 2012 I am planning on organizing two fairs for Art vs Craft. I'm hoping to get a table at a few other local craft fairs. And getting a table at Hal-Con for the 3rd year in a row! Maybe a table at Animaritime if I can find a way there and back (maybe we'll have a car by then).
But that's mostly my plan for 2012, just selling at more fairs. Getting my work out there more. Maybe then I can actually sell my work online.

Other than a few personal goals, I think all of that is all very accomplish-able!

I wish you all the best in 2012! Have a Happy New Year! <3

Merry Christmas!

The Christmas season is upon us again! And I thought I'd give my fans and supporters a little gift. It's nothing much, but it's the thought that counts! :)

Cute little Christmas tags to use to put on your gifts! Just download, print and cut!

Stuff, Stuff and more Stuff

It seems like it has been forever and a day since I posted here last.

Now that Hal-Con is over, I have been taking 'er easy and just farting around. The past few days though, I have been starting on some small projects in hopes of selling at my little spot at Plan B and at future craft fairs.

I went to the dollar store the other day and had a feild day with some of the new frames they sell there now. Plus I bought a ton of glitter. Which makes everything more fabulous.

I printed off some Christmas cards that I designed last year and added some hints of glitter on them. And now my desk is covered in the stuff. Which is wonderful but it's also a complete mess. Anyway, I'm selling the cards in the store for $3 each. If you want them you can go there, or you could always email me about purchasing online if you're not in the area.

I also have some sketches of what I want to put in the ever-so-fabulous frames I purchased. Let's just say it will all be girly, pretty and sparkly!

And I still have some of my ACEO cards left over that I made to sell at Hal-Con. If you would like to buy them let me know! They're going for $3 each. Either water color or pen drawings. Get them while you still can while they are cheap! I do plan on doing more of these ACEO cards, but I will be putting more effort into them, so I will be charging more.

From left to right top to bottom: Sailor Moon (Pen), Sailor Moon (pen & marker), Sailor Moon (water color), Sailor Jupiter (water color), Sailor mars (water color), Sailor Venus (water color), Sailor Pluto (water color), Wonder woman (water color), Mermaid (pens), X-Men: Storm (pen & marker), Victorian Belle (water color).

Other than that, nothing else is new with me! Been busy with making posters for a local pub and working at my part time job. It's all good! :)
