Pendant maddness!


I have been selling a few pendants each month - which I think is really great. That will overall be at least over 48 pendants a year if I continue at this rate. Offline and online I have probably sold close to 15! I have ordered more wood pendants to paint - so hopefully they were be here soon! I have a show in 2 weeks that will hopefully be lots of traffic for me. I sold one last night (my earth) one. I loved the Earth one - I'll have to do more of them! It turned out really cute. I have it already to mail out~ I listed this kitty one today!

moving :)

I am starting to get really excited about moving out to my own apartment. I really am a home body and I like to be by myself and now have to worry about anything :) It makes me joyous just the thought of it! I can't wait to buy some new lights, especially some floor lamps. I like aestheically pleasing lighting. It makes my whole mood better. I'm going to TRY and start getting up eariler too. I don't know if it's actually going to happen or not. I am going to try once I get my own place and I won't have to worry about not getting a chance to shower in the morning and all that jazz :)

Three months to go!

A Day Late


I celebrated Earth day by (well working all day but after that) painting. Painting some new pendants! I got 3 done and I listed my Earth Day one specifically. I love green and blue together - I think the Earth is just so beautiful. I hope you all like it. It's up on etsy and is ready for sale! :)

exercise!

Today was such a beautiful day. Too bad I didn't get a good chance to really enjoy it. I would have loved to go for a walk this evening but it's tough when there isn't anyone around to really walk with. I guess I'm going to have to make more friends around here - walking friends maybe?
It's nice to have exercise equipment though especially in the winter time. I know my sister just bought an elyptical (is that how you spell it?) a few months ago. It's pretty neat even though I haven't used it. It will be a purchase in the future possibly :P

Flowers on my mind

Since spring is approaching I have flowers on my mind. I recently listed 2 flower pendants. I really need to be painting more - I just have been so busy lately! I know that's no excuse... well maybe it is. I start my second sign language class (ASL2) next week so I am going to be super busy all over again. I recently found out about a handmade craft market going on this weekend - too bad I didn't know about it earlier or I would have loved to participate! Oh well :)

some of my friends sit in the sea again.

I am really excited (I know I keep saying this) to pay back my studen loan so I can put some money away into some savings accounts! I am going to buy a really nice laptop first and then I am going to save save save! I can't wait. I know that I don't make an enormous amount of money with what I am doing right now but time goes by so quickly and I love it so much. Who knows what's going to happen in the future career wise. I am really looking forward to learning more sign language and seeing if that turns into a potential career. Troy keeps giving me all this advise on savings accounts. I should start listening soon :P

ASL love

Tonight I went and met up with my classmates for an "end of class" dinner. It was so fun. We went to a cute little mexican food resturant downtown. We were there for over 2 hours just chatting and signing and everything it was so fun. I just love being in that atmosphere signing with everyone and talking about things. I really do like the people in my class and I usually can't say that!
One girl keeps calling me a 'baby' once she found out how "young" I am. I am really flattered when people tell me how mature I am. It does make me really happy. I just think it's so nice that people do perceive me older even though I may look younger. It's nice :)
I can't wait to start ASL level 2! :)

games!

I've been playing a lot of games lately - surprisingly! It has been a long time since I actually got my hands on some sort of gaming system but these last few weekends Troy and I pop over to Greg's house for a few hours at a time and play his new "Wii". It is really fun and cute. I have always been a nintendo geek. I should dig-out my old-school gameboy sometime. That would be fun. Troy's niece showed me her little handheld playstation thing and it's crazy the stuff that you can do with it. Once you get out of the loop with that kind of technology it's hard to understand anything!

sold aceo! :)

I've been wondering about my ACEO's lately what I should do about them. They haven't been that popular on etsy lately - especially compared with my wooden pendants that I have been doing lots of - but today I finally sold a really cute one. It was a pleasant surprise considering I haven't listed a new aceo in awhile - or anything super new over all for a while. It's been a busy last few weeks for sure!
Here's the one that has a new home now:

New furniture

I cannot wait to pay off my student loan. I know that I really want to buy some new furniture as well as a laptop once I save up after paying the loan off. Just thinking about it gets me all excited. I can't wait! I know I still have a long ways to go - but putting a little bit on my loan when I have the extra saved up - really helps a lot. And with summer coming up - I do want to buy some new clothes. I haven't bought some nice new clothes - since I can't remember when! Hopefully this will be the season! :D

I'm a slacker. !

Wow -
I've been really slacking on this blog lately! I guess I have been pretty busy. I took my wooden pendants into my sign language class last weekend and ending up selling eight of them! Everyone was telling me that I should go downtown and sell them at the market - it did give me a lot of confidence! =D

My first sign language class is over and in a few weeks I'm going to be starting my second one. I love it so much - it makes me so happy :)

I'm glad it's the weekend - even though it's half over already :(. The week does seem go to semi-fast but the weekend just speeds by. I have lots to look forward to this week though :)

Plans plans!

It has been a very interesting weekend. I had class yesterday morning then came back here to TOB to visit with Troy. I think he is going to "jam" with some guys later on this afternoon so I may head back to the city early. I'm not sure yet!
He and I were talking about vacation last night. I really want to take a cheap flights to Newfoundland and do some camping. Maybe in September sometime? Labour day weekend I think would be great! My friend Christian and Stephanie want to go to! It would be so fun. I don't know if we would drive and take the ferry or take a plane. I'll have to figure out costs. :)

painting maddness!

It's Tuesday already - yay!
I have my class tonight which I'm kinda looking forward too. It's just super tiring. I spent HOURS painting last night. I almost have a cute little 6 X 6 one done. I'm not sure if I want to list it on etsy or not - I guess it wouldn't hurt. I'm excited about it I hope to get some feedback on it - I'll try and post photos of it tomorrow. I also finished up a custom piece done on wood which I'll try and post a photo of as well. I need to buy some hooks for it on the back so that it can be hung. I hope she's happy with it.

:) Painting maddness around here!
