Butterflies in my shop!!!!

They're flying around being all hyper and stuff. And they won't stop playing their dredged loud rock music too. I guess I'll go join them. Weeee!

Etsy Dallas Crafting Circle

Last Friday I attended the 1st ever Etsy Dallas Craft Circle. A blast I had screenprinting with Dylan and hanging out with some really crafty Etsy Dallas folks. Read More about it on the Etsy Dallas Blog!

Happy Kitty Bunny Pony Bathroom

I love the book Happy Kitty Bunny Pony! It's filled with cute delightful images to turn any bad day into an explosion of happiness. I found a copy at a Half Priced Books Store at a really cheap rate, so I decided I'd have my fun with it. And what better than to plaster some happiness on my blank bathroom wall. This was an cheap easy and fun project that I want to share with you, So grab your art project hat and get to creating! yay!

1. Picture Book that you don't mind destroying
2. a bunch of frames, different sizes and styles(thrift store finds are great. My most expensive one was $1)
3. Paint
4. Scissors

I started by arranging my frames on the floor to get the perfect arrangement. I made sure most of them were touching another frame to give the illusion that this was one big piece of art.

Then once that was set, I chose a color pallet that went along with the bright happy colors in the book. Some of the frames I left their original color, but others I spray painted. Be sure you take out the glass from the frame before spray painting (I'm reminding you, because sometimes I make this mistake, oops).

Then once it's all dry, take your picture book and cut out your favorite images to fit in the frames. Most times frames have a cardboard insert that you can use as a sizing guide when cutting out your images.

When you're finished pop in all those pics and get to hanging!!!! And add that super fun to any room in your house!

Dylan and Pamela make fun art!

My man and I have been working on this painting for the past few months. We decided to do a collaborative fun painting that will never be finished. This is probably the 20th layer of paint on it. It's been through acrylics, spray paint, graph paper, collage, polyurethane, glass gems, hot glue, water, coffee, and beers, and it's still going.
