Well, it's the end of an era. Hobby Lobby has put all of their Amsterdam Acrylics on Clearance and they don't plan on restocking them once they're gone. RIP, my friends.
I want to write about a few things, namely my fascination with this lady named Helen Ward (aka Birdface).
A few years ago, while Googling "funky weddings", I stumbled on her husband's Flickr page and fell in LOVE with her wedding dress/jewelry/accessories/everything. It's exactly how I wanted my wedding. Well, time went by and I committed to a color scheme and things didn't work out the way that I wanted it (it's probably for the best). But, these images are still a huge part of my inspiration so I got permission from her to post them:
Months and months later, I found her site called Birdface's Weblog and now I'm a regular visitor. Her artwork/graphic design/everything is just terrific! &, lucky her, this week she has started selling some jewelry she has designed through this website. Here's a sneak peek:
If you've got the time, I urge you to go poke around her blog
Here's a pretty picture I did of one of my cats, Porsche-
The other things to note is this beautiful, new necklace that I created since yesterday:
& the beginning of a painting for a purpose of which I can't disclose until March. Sorry...
I never did post images of ART's Christmas present, so you're in for a treat today. Meet Dalí, aka the Dalí Dolly (it's so much fun to say it that way)
He has a removable velcro clock that says "Levame" on it, which is Spanish for "take me". Dali used to say "Llevame. Llevame. Soy una droga."(Take me, take me, I am a drug- referring to the movement he was involved in... aka Surrealism)
I took the Dali Dolly to the High to see the Dali Exhibit & I wanted to get a picture of it in front of The Persistence of Memory, but the guards caught me. So, the next best thing was a picture of Dali and Frida (the doll ART made for my b-day last year) outside of the High.
All righty. Well, I just accidentally smeared purple paint across my lower lip so I guess I've gotta take care of that. Tomorrow's also the baby shower, which I am SO excited about ('cause I made this painting for the mom-to-be, remember?) See you then,
