New Art! Yippity Skippity!

Every Friday I participate in an Etsy Dallas crafting circle hosted by the great Larry, the Kessler Craftsman, in his enormous home studio. A few weeks ago I brought an empty canvas and painted the night away, and this is what I ended up doing.

I love birds (if you can't tell) and coffee!!!! So what better than birds and coffee in one painting! woo hoo! Oh, and the Shiner was my fuel that night. Always good for keeping the art engine running late at night.

Etsy Dallas Aprons!!!

Being a part of Etsy Dallas has been super super awesome! I made us some aprons to wear for our upcoming Beer-B-Q Trunk Show. Aren't they hot? Especially on that yummy model girl. haha!

I made a Treasury on Etsy

I haven't done on of these Treasury things in quite a while. Fortunately, I was in the right time at the right place today and was able to snag one. Picking amazing talent is tough when you have so much to choose from, so I stuck with my homies and featured my Etsy Dallas buddies. Check them out. They all rock! Too bad there's not enough space to show all the awesome work.

see the real thing here.
