my friend reenie of peculiar ambitions gifted us some beautiful eggs from her farm the other day.
these little guys were even standing on their heads they were so excited!
the fabulous egg cups are by artist alison palmer. i'd love to visit connecticut and take one of her workshops someday! i've had an obsession with ceramics for as long as i can remember. i did take some classes once. i very quickly came to the realization that... i should just stick to purchasing other people's.
all this really makes me want chickens! my husband would NEVER go for it. i will have to settle with living vicariously through you reenie.
it's my latest find on etsy, of course. i've always wanted a vintage coffee pot. when i finally searched etsy to acquire one, this was one of the first ones to pop up. and it's perfectly me. it was a "meant to be".
and, it even works!
i plan on serving many batches of hot tea punch out of this big yellow beauty.
i'm a happy girl.
this weekend i'm DETERMINED to be productive & inspired. i plan on running for one, since i've fallen off the wagon and didn't run a SINGLE day this week. painting for two, still many paintings to finish. but mostly, just using my time wisely.
st. patrick's day is already almost here! these cute & funky st. patrick's day cupcake toppers are ones that i previously designed for a party. i've included the free downloads for them at the bottom of this post. i haven't quite gotten around to this years yet... not sure if it's going to happen.
do you have any big plans/traditions for st. patty's day 2012?
part of this weekend was spent weeding through my studio, working on completing all the paintings that are half done. the bummer is, starting again after not touching them for SO long- i end up essentially repainting the whole thing over again.
perhaps i will grow out of this rotten habit someday!?!?!?!? PLEASE say you have experience with this and you've conquered it. give me hope that the whispered words to myself of "never again" are not lost in the wind.
i also managed an 11 mile run on Saturday! my longest run in over a year. it feels good to be active again. and my body seems to be holding up. yay!
another painting complete. a bit on the hedgehog-ish side. super love him...
but still trying to come up with a title. anything yelling out at you? i have a few in my mind, but i've not settled on any one of them yet. words are my weakness. as you can probably tell with my mad writing skillzzzz.
hi and welcome!!! i'm so glad you're here! my name is michelle. i'm blessed to be a wife (to gary) of 18 years and a mom of two girls; alexis(16) & jess(11). i've been a full time artist for 15 years. i made my start at Portland Sat. Mkt. and art fairs around the country, and then headed into wholesale shows when our oldest began school. i love ART-ing, art journaling, running, cycling and downing junk food!
