I Don't Want To Do Anything Today....

There...I said it.  I am late.  VERY LATE, and instead of running to get dressed, make my lunch, scoop the cat litter, and make my coffee, oh and clean up the mess that LooLoo (cat) made while she dumped the whole bowl of food on the floor, I am sitting here typing because I do not want to move.

I want to sit and work on my Etsy site, and finish some projects, and work on school work, and snuggle with my wife.  I would also like to peruse pinterest and dream of places I would like to go and things I would make (or not make).

I need to get moving.  I know I do.  It's Friday.  I hope people are nice today.  I hope you guys have a wonderful day.

By the way this Tumblr site is amazing...the photographs are Amazing!  All taken by one person but I can't find his name on his site.  If anyone can message me and I will post it.  Really, really beautiful.

Finally Spending some Quality Time with my Etsy Shop LoveUPaperly

I have been thinking about posting so many new products to LoveUPaperly and trying to do a push for new items, but we all know how that goes!

While I was away in California on family vacation (I will post pictures of that eventually) I was able to do so many water color paintings and works on some hand calligraphy.  I also had the chance to really think about what I wanted my Etsy shop to be.  That was inbetween the fire pit and pool time!

Back to Etsy.  This is what I decided.  As an artist, I have never been able to focus on one thing.  If I should have been painting, I wanted to be printmaking, If I was printmaking, I wanted to be drawing.

My teachers always saw this as something that was a hindrance to my art.  The more I think about it the more I have decided to use it as a positive.  I love all different kinds of art and enjoy doing different kinds of things.

I have decided to not focus on only one thing on LoveUPaperly.  Instead I am going to sell my cards, and prints, and jewelry, and my sculpture.  I will take it as it goes and keep making art that makes me happy.

Here are some of the latest listings:

The Prints above are each selling for $8.50.  The Clay Flowers are selling for $4.50.  Look on LoveUPaperly for more items.

I have to say I am happy with the work I have put into the new items and school is starting on MONDAY.  Uhhhhggg.

Hope everyones weekend is going well.

Lots of love,

California and Wanderlust...

Happy Sunday!  If anyone knows why Saturday and Sunday go by so much faster than the other days of the week I would like to know why.  It feels like some sort of phenomenon that requires a name.

Today all I wanted to do was lie in bed with the covers pulled over my head.  Sometimes the world feels like too much.  Instead I vacuumed the house, watched an episode of The Foster's with Meridyth (good t.v. show), and worked on a water color.

Tonight I also have a bit of Wanderlust.  I recently returned from a wonderful vacation in California and I keep wishing I could go back.

This is where I wish I was tonight...

I wish I was on a plane somewhere...(picture taken by me with my iphone 4)

lots of love,
