Monthly Goals - Lost and Found

Monthly Goals for August:
  • Get ready for my first art show September 12th. I will have my own booth at the University Height Arts Open September 12th I just signed up yesterday, and there is much to do! In some ways think who do I think I am thinking I can pull this off in 6 weeks? But really I should think what do I have to lose? NADA! If anyone has any tips they would like to share, please do. I need all the help I can get.
June Goals - All finished!

  • Set up my Etsy shop
  • Finish One painting
  • 60 cards of my design professionally printed, and list them on Etsy
This is my creative piece for Found Art Friday, and the theme this month is "Found". I recently got engaged, so this piece represents my future husband (Charlie), and the right corner says 'at last'. Which sums up how we both feel, we found each other at last. Only 10 more months before we tie the knot!

Thanks again to
the talented artist Cathy Nichols for organizing Found Art Friday.

Summer Time

Old Kayaks in Salida, Colorado

Columbine Flower

These photos were taken on my most recent trip home to Colorado. We finally picked a wedding date and a site. The wedding will take place by a river in Colorado next summer. Still can't believe I am getting married.

In the mean time I have been trying to keep up with my creative goals. Finally
Got my Etsy shop up, after months of putting it off. It was super easy to set up, and realized I freaked myself out by thinking it was going to be super hard. I think the hard part will be selling work.
I just wish there was 36 hours to a day!

We won!

I was named the winner from Young House Love giveaway for wedding invitations from Two Paperdolls and Louella Press. We are thrilled we won. Swing by and check out Two Paperdolls and Louella Press sites. Their work is beautiful. I love all their designs, and not sure which one we will pick. We first need to select a date and venue! Some things we are a little slow at.

Thanks again to Sherry and John Petersik of Young House Love for selecting us.

No Beach Time Here

Back from vacation, which is why I have not update my blog in a long time. I did not have access to a computer. My mom has dial up at her house in the mountains, but why bother when the connection so slow? So I decided to give myself a break from my computer, and all the responsibility that goes along with it.

Working on some cool projects over in my neck of the woods, so will have more to share soon.

For the time being, it's very cool here in San Diego - like high around 65. It's still June gloom! I dream of warmer days where I can take a dip in the ocean.
