New Purple Bags

I have added two new bags to my etsy store. They were simple to make a only took a small amount of time. I think because I am still in the learning stage with these bags I will keep them pretty cheap until I can really be confident with them.
They are listed in the Etsy store just follow the link on the side to buy!

Fathers day

happy fathers day to all the daddys out there. I made bacon and eggs for my guy today and had his daughter say happy fathers to him this morning. I am not up to any current projects, I have been very busy with school and work. With 40 hours at work plus school work and cant seem to find time to work on anything. I know everyone had weeks like this so I dont really feel bad. Next week will be a better week I hope......

Up and Down

It has been an up and down kinda of week. When I went to my mother's for the weekend, I came home to find I had sold a bag. But then I saw that I had not been paid yet. I think it sucks when your item is like in Limbo, neither paid but not available. I think Etsy should really do something about it rather than let it stay like this. I have tried to contact the buyer about 3 times and no responds, then sent a invoice by paypal, yet nothing.
And then today, Sold 2 items. Made my day, was able to pack everything up and ship it out this morning. I love when buyers make it easy for you.
Sorry for my rant but I think it well deserved.

I have finshed my next bag. This one is still made of the same material as the last one. I made this one flat so it is more of a tote then a bag. The pattern on it is pretty cool.

Prefect bag for shopping or heading to class. Can easily holds notebooks to everything a woman can every want from her makeup to wallet. The bag measures 12 inches by 13 inches. The strap measures 48 inches that is perfect length for a shoulder bag or messenger bag.

I wanna go to Guam

My best friend is now living in Guam with her husband. I do miss her but I think I am more sad that she is living on a pretty island. She has been taking tons of pictures while living there. This painting is taken from on of her pictures.

New bags

Laying on the couch watching Rome and I can't figure out if i like it or not. I spent last semester studying Roman art and I have already found things wrong with it. I love Art history even tho I end out with C s in the classes. I have never been good at history. But i love art.

I have been working on a new bag made with black yarn, it has a different pattern but I believe that it should be really nice when it is done. I also finshed a green stone bracelet. The listing is here : . This is about 3 months in the making but I believe it came out looking really nice.

Black Crochet Bag

I have been sick for the last couple of days and have been suck at home. So for that time I had design a simple black bag. Took me only 20 hours to finish and that includes me sitting and watching tv during. the bag measures 12 inches across, 12 inches tall when folded flat. The base is round and when opened it has great storage. the strap is 46 inches long, perfect lengh for crossing over the chest.

listed on etsy:

I believe I am going to sell it for about $20 and offer it in a rage of colors, with the option to shorten the strap. I don't know what colors I should offer. Any colors that are really popular?

The older works

I have been in college for 4 years now. During that time I have been a pretty lazy in taking good pictures of all my work. Tons of work has made in into the trash because I didnt feel the need to keep them. I now understand I was a idiot. Studying to become an art teacher, I have now learned to at least take pictures to show examples later.

6/1/10- unsure

Currently I am laying on the couch with netflix playing in the background. There is a kitten eating my toes. I have almost no drive to paint or pull out the jewerly stuff. I have work in the evening. No way will I do anything until then. Currently my boyfriend is at work, I kinda want to clean for him, but then I do. I know that I am not the only one out there that feel this.

I started painting this past semester, during my painting 1 class. During the class I had painted only 5 paintings. It was small number for 4 months of class. I am now spending my summer painting some more.
