Happy Long Weekend!

I know! I know! It's not the weekend yet but it's just a day away.. and Friday is a half day anyway.. and I intend on enjoying this weekend the second it starts. Which hopefully be this time tomorrow. Why so much enthusiasm for this particular long weekend.. well this is officially our last long weekend before baby arrives.. we could get the 4th of July weekend.. but that will be just too late and I think relaxing will be the last thing on my mind then and will be thinking more along the lines of how do I get this baby out! Our plans for this weekend.. well lets just say its all about relaxing. I'll give you the deets in next weeks post.

And to all of you out there lucky enough to get a long weekend, enjoy! Get out and bar.b.que, take in the sun and let everything else just melt away.

In the last week I have been lucky enough to be in three wonderful treasuries all deserving of your clicks:
Secret Garden Meet Me There and I am the Light of the World

I have also listed a few new photographs Sunny Chairs


Swirls


Tailed


and a few new art prints Cute as a Button


Flower Cracker


And with this I wish you all a happy long weekend.. see you all next week.

10 Days

I can't believe it has been ten days since I last blogged. I have been so busy and tired that time just slipped away from me. I don't even know where to start.

What's happening now may be a good start, I have a lunch party on Saturday, girls only kind of like a baby shower but a bit religious in nature. Lots of cooking needed, which thank god my aunt is taking care of. I have another aunt flying in from LA and one of my childhood friends coming in from Atlanta. Excited! But for now what I do need to do is clean house. With we getting closer to my due date I've been ignoring the dust gathering and just cleaning what I need to clean. But with twenty something people coming over I have gotten back to cleaning all the nitty gritties.. a little everyday.. todays task THE KITCHEN! Half way done.. so yippee.. taking a break and will get back to the rest in a bit.

That was a domestic update now for a baby update.. we bought a crib.. yet to be assembled.. we also bought a glider and finished assembling it yesterday only to find out it does not glide or rock without me rocking back and forth. It is too much work and will therefore have to be unassembled and returned! Now need to find another one.. and my god how expensive gliders are..! I also just recieved some goregous felt in the mail from PixieRose unfortunately the shop is now closed. Hope she opens up again soon, she had great colors to offer. Anyway so yesterday I also started felting, making a mobile for the nursery inspired by the beautiful work of Lupin. First time ever working with felt.. so good luck to me.

Lastly, a work update. Over the past week I have listed a ton of new work in my Etsy Shop. A few new and not so new photographs. Squared In

Livin on the Edge


The Offering


Standing in Line

and a few brand new art prints Numbered

And of course the best news for last. I sold this great photograph On the Way Down


And how has your week been? Hope you all have a great weekend and tons of sun shine.

Where did spring go?

After a few days of tank tops and flip flops, when we thought our coats and sweaters could finally be put away along came the gusts of wind, the scattered showers and the cold weather. So my socks are back on and I got my sweatshirt out of the deep recesses of my closet.

On Saturday I recieved a little package in the mail. I had won a few giveaways over the past few weeks and I expected it to be another prize. I say this without meaning to offend or seem ungrateful but not all prizes excite me as other. Some I wait for while others I forget I was even expecting. This little package definitely took me by surprise. Inside was the most gorgeous necklace ever. The colors just right, I wore it immediately and didn't take it off all day. Went out with friends and coordinated my wardrobe to work with the necklace. M was also a big fan of it, interestingly enough with the cool blues around my neck my hotness level shot through the roof. : ) But that was not all that came in the package. There were these lovey two colored earrings. Pink and Orange and oh so pretty! And it still didn't end there.. this small little package was just full of surprises. The perfect way to start off the weekend. Here are some pictures and I insist you must hurry over to Atlantis AK Jewelry immediately. You will not be dissapointed.




We spent the rest of our Saturday in the park expecting warmth and sun and surprised by the cold gusts of wind, later a bad movie at a friends house and some burgers to finish off the night.

I had told you all about the great sale I had made for a large custom framed photograph. Saved! It was shipped out today, but not before I took a picture of it on my own wall.


I have also been a busy bee and have listed a lot of new work over the last week. Here's a sneak peak Joy


See you on the Other Side

Butt Cramps!!!

Yes you read right.. I have gotten butt cramps.. they stay hidden for most of the day but then all of a sudden when you least expected BANG.. this sharp pain shoots down my leg and one of my butt checks cramps up like it's having a seziure! Not fun! This makes my very frequent bathroom trips all the more troublesome..
Curious, I Googled butt cramps and turns out I'm not the only one. Thank God for that.. not that I enjoy others pain it's just that having butt cramps is just weird. Anyway.. turns out that while the baby is partying inside..tumbling about and using my bladder as a squeeze toy s/he manages to roll on over my sciatic nerve and when the nerve is pinched it cause pain to shoot up and down my leg..
Oh well as long as the baby is enjoying him/herself.. right?!

In other news.. we have two decent sized closets in each room but they lack shelving..meaning the space is just being wasted.. so we decided to install our own shelving and optimize the space in our closets. It has not been easy with some cricket world cup going on and my husband finding it hard to tear his eyes away from the screen. But with a whole lot of sugar coated nagging.. I managed to get him to put up two shelves in the nursery.. three more to go.. will put up pictures when the project is complete..

And now some shop news.. a few new photographs Red Door


Orange Leaf


Some brand new art prints Circling Orange


Arabesque


Flowers and Vines


Eat Eat Eat


Girl on Swing


And now for some renewed listings Tired

Hope you're all having a great crampless week..
