Such a beautiful day!

Today started way too early with a 9 mile run at 7:45. It was so cold out then, but since then, the day as become warm and gorgeous. We (Jenn, Yurry, and I) finished in 2 hours and 15 minutes 'round about. I did something to my left ankle and now it's mad at me. I haven't updated much lately because school is back in session and I don't get to do much of my own thing. When I get home I'm so exhausted that I sit and draw/color. I will share some more of my coloring book pages later when I finally find a scanner. Last night I started another embroidery. So far I only have the 'M' outlined but I plan on some french knots and a few other things.

Now, go out and enjoy the fantastic weather!!

A quick one

So, it's my bedtime. Gotta be back at school tomorrow. It shouldn't be too bad, but Tuesday will be.

Anyway, I updated the shop with the new earrings.

Nighty night!

Finally finished

While waiting for my running partner to arrive, I decided to finish up those earrings.

Happy Friday!!

While my hair color was processing this morning,

I decided to move ahead with the jewelry I started at the beginning of the week. I have sealed both sides of the pieces and now it is time to glue on posts or drill holes for the wire.

Winding down Spring Break

I'm sad that Spring Break is almost over. I wish that I could say that I can't wait to get back in my classroom, but I can't. It's been so nice to relax and create when I want to create. Today I did some carving and printing. I took photos along the way.

It's really one of my most favorite things to do!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I wore my green today. I didn't want to get pinched. Wore my green chucks, too, just to be sure.

I started working on some new earrings yesterday. I like to take pretty papers and ModPodge them to little wood cutouts. Some will dangle, some will be posts. Here is the end of step one:

After lunch today, we went downtown to American Apparel to get some mustard yellow tights for my Easter outfit. I think it's gonna look fantastic.

I leave you with a pic of some owls I got for my birthday last summer. Have a lovely day!

Spring Break

Spring Break is off to a great start. I've been able to hang out with my friends and not worry about being out past my bedtime. Yesterday I spent the afternoon printing to get some more pieces for my portfolio. The ink is still a little tacky so they're still hanging. Here is a look at where I am in the process:

Today I got my hair cut and bought a fantastic new jacket. I have an addiction to jackets and bags. Seriously though, this jacket is fantastic. Perhaps I will get better photos up of it soon, but here is a look at the new cut and jacket.

Hello all.

I've been working on a new design for the website, so I figured I'd change the blog up a bit too.

A while ago a couple of my friends started a new hobby. They are now addicted to coloring. I decided to make my own coloring book instead of buying one. Here are a couple of the pages I've done:

I hope to get the new site up soon. A few photos have yet to be taken of some paintings to update my portfolio. Another thing that is slowing me down is the lack of a scanner. My old scanner is not compatible with my new Mac, and it's proving very difficult to find one not attached to a printer. I have a very nice printer that looks very pretty sitting on my craft table/desk, so I don't need an all-in -one. I'm afraid I will have to order one and wait for it to be delivered.
