CAFE PRESS ECLIPSE DESIGN CONTEST

Cafe Press is having Eclipse Design Contest. The prize is $500!!!
Here's the link to their blog: Head’s up! An astronomical number of Eclipse “site”ings.: "With the up-coming release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse movie, things are really looking up in the CafePress excitement.
First, we have our Eclipse T-shirt Design Contest. You can win $500 American Express Gift Cards for WOWing our judges with cool designs in several categories. Win or lose, your designs will also make their way"
I'm a fan of the Twilight saga so I wanted to participate and come up with something original. Here's what I've submitted:


I'm also hoping to come up with something more artsy if time permits before the contest is over. Let me know what you think.

CHIRPING CAT STUDIOS

Yesterday, it was Lorenzo, today I found something else also really cool - a Harry Potter charm bracelet. I really like it, so I'm posting it here even though Chirping Cat is pretty much, my direct competition in the jewelry sales market. This is a great idea and a very pretty bracelet plus Chirping Cat is a fellow Atlantian so I feel good about doing this and supporting local community.

I love Harry Potter (can't wait for the next movie to come out later on this year!!!) but if you're not a fan, she's got other items you might like: Starbucks bracelet and earring, candy bars charm bracelet, Alice in Wonderland, etc. Take a look, here's a link to the store: Chirping Cat Studios

And readers: I promise to get back on my artsy side soon and start painting and posting my creations again. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy exploring others' work with me.

LORENZO THE CAT

I found Lorenzo the Cat on etsy.com. Joann Biondi has had an awesome idea with the prints, cards etc of a Main Coon Lorenzo. I'm not sure if they're done in photoshop or does she actaully dress the cat up. Cant' imaging that ever happening with my cat. Just one Santa hat idea for Christmas cards turned out to be nn impossible task.
Either way, I absolutely love all of Lorenzo's fashion phots. Not only because Lorenzo could be my Jack's  brother, but also because it's truly awesome and genius really. Here he is for all to see:



Also, here's the link to the shop: Lorenzo on Etsy

BACK TO BLOGGING

I've been away from blogging for a while now. Main reason for that has been the fact that I haven't been creating. And the reason for that has been the fact that I haven't been the healthiest. For some reason, when I don't feel well the artsy feeling is still there but the energy to follow it thru, is not. It feels a lot easier to just waste time on watching movies or browse the internet or just do other things like that, that are more mechanical.
Either way, I'm back to blogging, I've decided that I miss it and I'm going to blog whether I have something to show of my own or whether I'm just to blabber about things that I find interesting enough to share. I have no idea whether anybody actually reads my blog, so at the last book club meeting, I was a little surprised and pumped at the same time when Julie and Rachel have told me that I need to update my blog. They've been checking it out??!! Cool, awesome, fabulous!!! So thank you girls for giving me a little push to want to do it again. Coming next: Lorenzo the cat.
