Just a Few Things

Tomorrow is the season premire of Grey's Anatomy. Two hours of drama. I don't know if I will be able to survive. Better prepare with some snacks, some popcorn and maybe a soda. Haven't done that for a while. I am most looking forward to Pushing Daisies starting again. That show is so cute and something different for a change. It could also have to do with how adorable I think Lee Pace is who plays the Pie Maker.

Speaking of Lee Pace he has recently been a couple movies that I would recommend watching. My favorite being The Fall and the other Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.

Another good movie I would recommend is Penelope. I would describe it as a modern fairy tale that is imaginative and fun. One more recommendation this time of the book variety would be Sunday's at Tiffanys. It gives an interesting twist on the love story.

In other news I added another piece to the shop. Another furry friend this one being a tiny little dachshund. I haven't sold anything yet which is a little discouraging but I hope that changes soon.

I finished up work tonight watching Edward Scissorhands always a classic.

"You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it. " -Kim in Edward Scissorhands

Slow and Steady

Today I added another piece to the shop.

It is of regal basset hound who is now looking for a new stately home in which to reside.
More four legged friends to come...

Make it Work.

Project Runway is a show I enjoy watching whenever I get the chance. Not only are some of the outfits and designers totally outrageous, but no other show has the one and only Tim Gunn. ("Don't bore Nina!")
Usually he is a pretty straight faced guy but I saw this picture and it just made me laugh to see such a huge grin on his face.
It is almost impossible to look at it and not smile.
Go ahead give it a try.

I hate to say it...but I told you so...

My name is Steph and I am a magazine addict

Its true, I have always enjoyed reading and gazing at the glossy pages of magazines. So to somewhat justify all the magazines stacked in my home I decided to do a little recycling by making envelopes from the pages.

Today I listed the first set of three made from Juicy Couture ads.
There is more to come so stay tuned.

Nice to Meet You!

I just recently opened my shop on Esty and have been adding some new items. Tomorrow I will be adding a couple more. I really want my shop to take off, because I love creating art and sharing it with others. So with this blog I plan on sharing a little about me and about what I am doing artistically along with anything that inspires me or I just get a kick out of.

So now for a little bit about me...
  • I am the peanut butter girl next door type who married her blonde blue eyed high school sweet heart. (yes that still happens).
  • I went to the local university and double majored in Studio Art with a concentration in painting and also Art Education.
  • Currently I am job searching while working at the local video rental store, if you need any recommendations on movies I am your gal. Or as my shirt puts it I am your "Movie Goddess".
  • I love libraries, books, and reading. It just so happens that I have my library card number memorized ( nerd ).
  • I share my home with my husband and a furry cat named Mr.Yum Yums.
Now a little something about my artwork...

  • My work mainly consists of drawing and painting.
  • My figures for the most part stand alone on the blank canvas. The main characters of some story or film that is yet to be written.
  • The envelopes are made from the magazines that litter my home and often inspire my paintings. When making them I don't have sets in mind I just make a whole bunch, lay them out and see what goes together. (Which is my favorite part.)

There it is folks, I hope that you stop by here and my shop often. Feel free to leaves comments or email me. I would like to get to know other artists like myself.

For now have a great weekend!
