went tree shopping today.
found an absolutely fantastic tree.
for under $10!
this isn’t the one we got.
neither are these.
(but they sure do taste yummy)
guess you’ll just have to come back another day to see our fantastic tree find.
spent most of my last 2 days at the one of a kind show.
its hard work pretending to be my sister.
feels good when people compliment me on my (her) work & tell me how awesome it is.
but then when they ask me what inspires me, how i paint them, etc…
thats when i say ‘oh the artist is actually my sister, not me.’
i did, however, get to show off my pretend talent & paint a little bit.
raw canvas had a little booth where you could paint on a big shared canvas.
with wine in hand, of course.
my 2 little blue birds may not be frameable or sellable, but i’m pretty stoked about them.
these are the emerging artists showcasing at OOAK:
and some of the booths/vendors i loved:
love jules leather (awesome shoes & fanny packs – yes, fanny packs!)
notice me hats (beautiful hats)
a cagey bee (cute illustrations & lockets)
dirty apron (beautiful things for your kitchen. you need them)
mary & maude illustrations (so. cute.)
erin templeton (gorgeous leather bags)
there are so many more vendors i loved, but i am too tired to remember them right now.
you’ll just have to go for yourself!
there is 1 day left!
tomorrow (sunday) december 11, 2011 from 10am until 5pm.
i promise you will find some fantastic christmas (or just because) presents.
hey! its my painting.
still a few original (& beautifully framed) portraits looking for a good wall to hang on!
beautiful pottery by ‘dahlhaus’
leather shoes by ‘love jules leather’
lockets by ‘a cagey bee’
autumn passed by quickly.
(not quite as quickly as summer did).
but my new boots make me happy enough (i guess) to venture through winter.
so far they have been treating me well.
except for that one day i was walking in ankle deep slush on mount seymour.
thankfully that won’t become a habit of mine.
something about these trees,
i just love.
(blood alley, gastown.)
a tiny preview of a photo session i did last week.
this little family was SO MUCH FUN.
3 year olds are the best.
first time i met her,
i walked in the door & she asked me “do you want a marble?”
second time i met her,
at the end of our session, she told me “i love you!”
i wanted to keep her.
i had a fantastic birthday weekend.
not all of it was captured on camera.
here is one of my favorite photos i took this weekend.
at breakfast with my sister.
3 things i love.
making something with this for my birthday party tomorrow:
