Pardon my flailing and excited girly screaming.

Which you can probably hear all the way around the globe at this point.

I just got a call from the gallery that hosted the paper arts show I made a piece for and apparently I won 2nd place, which equals a $200 prize. I seriously screamed at the top of my lungs after I hung up. I went to the opening last week, and...

What's the world coming to?

Actually I just finished photographing my piece for a paper arts show at a local gallery and I'm so in love with the damn thing that I had to share it.

Behold my thing!

It's made from a children's book I've had since second grade (so..22 years or so.) The pages are tucked and

So, hey yinz guys! I'm not dead. I swear. Look...typing...words. Not dead.

I made the big move to the Erie and truthfully, it's gone so much better than I ever could have imagined. With a little help from my mom we had the place all set up and feeling cozy in just a few days. And now that I've gotten...

i'm glad to hear the move went so well, and i'm glad to hear you are doing so well with your art, i hope you continue's to grow, and get more business, living in a city with great food and intertwinement is wonderful, Lexington is great for all of that.  on a side note, you are ridiculously good looking.  take care.

So, that was an interesting few months.

I had a whirlwind season of sales for the holidays. Between two of the biggest shows in the area, online sales, private sales and my kickin' deal with Mental_Floss I barely had time to breathe. I got accepted to the Redditgifts Marketplace at the tail end of their fall exchanges and hence was there for the utter MADNESS...

i'm really happy to hear that sales have went so well, i hope it keeps going and you make a lot of money.  i'm sorry to hear about the divorce, i have had about 7 or  so friends in the last a little over a year get divorced, so i know how it is, i'm sure you have plenty of people to talk to, but if you need some one else to unload on i would be more then happy to message with you about it, i hope the move goes well and everything works out.

I can't truly relate with your experiences, but I sympathize with the difficulties of turning a new leaf. Seems like things are going a bit all right since you posted. So... huzzah and stuff!

Poke.

First off, new rule: If you repeatedly try to follow me even though I keep denying you, I will just block you entirely. Problem solved.

Secondly, my first show of the season is a little less than two weeks away. Eeek! So stoked/panicked. It's a venue that I did extremely well at in the spring, and my stuff isn't even spring-oriented. So...

With the new site re-launch and the subtraction of the option to turn off friend requests, let me take a moment to say that I will not allow follows from people I don't know. And by "know" I mean interacted with via comments or messages. Or perhaps if we have a group in common and I've seen you post interesting/intelligent/humorous things...

I know how you feel about NOT having the friend option now. Not liking the new sg at all. I have about 6 months left on my subscription and either they will change a lot of the features here or I am able to figure out this messed up site or probably won't renew. all I get is headaches with the new site. I will not be a follower here. too creepy. much prefer friends not stalkers. Wish I would of known of you before the change.

tmacimaging:

I completely understand.  I sure don't wanna be one of those creepy stalkers...

Hey, look at me being terrible about updating! I'm super awesome at not blogging. I should get an award. Or cookies. An award made from cookies? Yes?

I mostly haven't updated because there hasn't been a lot going on. And partially because I've been in a foul mood on and off for the past couple of weeks. The craft show I...
