I'm Alive!

Red Rock Canyon.

I survived Vegas! We spent a good amount of time out in Summerlin and Henderson going to casinos out there in addition to the typical stuff on the strip. Freemont Street was neat as usual. I got tattooed at Downtown Tattoo while I was out there! Pictures will be up as soon as I have good ones of the tattoo and other various vacation photos soon.

In regards to the upcoming new year....I don't really do resolutions because let's be honest, who sticks to that? BUT I really need to "get my shit together" and the new year is a perfect time for a fresh start. I'm looking forward to what 2011 brings and what I will accomplish.

Happy New Year everyone! If you're in Chicago make sure the check out The Copyrights/Cheap Girls/Sidekicks/Love & Squalor at the Fireside Bowl 12/31/10.

Oh Hi

Well a few days after the Late Bar gift fair I got a pretty bad cold and it's still kinda lingering. I haven't been working on anything, just been hibernating and drinking whiskey hoping that will finally get rid of this cold. I opened my Xmas presents from Sarah today and she sent me some awesome supplies! Buttons, palette knives, canvas, and so many random goodies!

I've been scanning some sketchbook pages. These are my glasses. NERD POWER. I made some buttons with this drawing and they look damn good, I'm going to make more and probably have 'em in my Etsy shop at some point.

Hope everyone has a good holiday, I'll be partying it up in Vegas! I can't wait for sun and 50 degree weather.

Embroidery Inspiration

I absolutely love Joetta Maue's work. I keep her blog in my reader feed and love seeing the progress of her projects. There is an amazing quality and delicacy to her work that makes me so happy and inspired. The amount of work she does is astonishing and makes me feel so lazy! I am looking forward to doing some embroidery projects soon, it's been awhile.

My set-up

I got some lip balm from the lovely Natalie and absolutely love it! I went with the Rose scent; make sure to check out her Etsy shop here.
