The Grass Is Always Greener

Why doesn't my desk look as alluring as this? Even though I basically have the same job this designer from Lilly Pulitzer via Lonny Mag I still envy her. The Lonny article pointed out that all the design work is done in house and how unusual that is these days. I wonder how she feels about designing for a company versus designing her own work? I am very very thankful to have a job in this economy but I still yearn to have control over my own work. I would love to hear your opinion. Would you rather create for a company or work for yourself?
So have you missed me? I have been in a little funk lately. Sorry i have not been posting much. I think I am going to be rethinking this whole blog thing. I was on a good schedule of posting 3 times a week but I think for now I am going to use the blog more for promoting the business. If you want to see what fun things I have discovered on the internet you can always check out my Pinterest boards. Just click on the handy buttons to your right.

Treating myself

Oh lookie what I got. A beautiful mixed media pomegranate painting from Found Studio. This one is mine mine mine but there is another pomegranate in her shop plus lots of other lovely paintings that I think you should buy for yourself for absolutely no good reason whatsoever. You deserve it.

Clearance Sale!

Have you noticed the new ad on Modish? Very exciting! And to celebrate I am offering 15% off with the coupon code MOD15 in the Etsy shop. It will be good through February.  Get em while you can. I am going to emptying out half the shop at the end of the month. I am licencing out a bunch of my images. So this is your chance to get them at rock bottom prices. Before you know it they will be in big fancy stores with big fancy price tags. This clean out means I need to get started on some great new artwork. Great way to start the new year with  lots of new prints!

My Wish

Is 2011 the year I finally get a tattoo? I have had a print out of this one from Amanda Johnson posted on the wall at work as inspiration. I have wanted a shoulder tattoo similar to this since I was a teenager. The problem is I am such a procrastinator. I just need to sit down and start drawing it. Of course if I had the figure to pull it off I would kill for this corset tattoo. Gorgeous!

It's a new year and now is the time to get some new artwork done. These patterns are definitely getting me excited to get back to painting.
