Queen of Procrastination

•25 February 2012 • Leave a Comment

I am so behind.  But I tend to like it that way.  All I have managed to do is get the paper torn and I haven’t done anything else with the wedding invites AND I have 2 sets of invitations that need to be finished soon.  Basically I have 3 projects that need to be done within the month of March.
I have a little wiggle room with the Wedding invites because the wedding is not until July so typically the invites should go out 6-8 weeks before.  The timeline is easy for me since my sister is actually getting married on my 5th anniversary.  So I know when I sent mine out (and it was destination wedding) so I know  when she will need to send hers out also.

I did buy a stamp for the back of things.  Its a personalized stamp and I am super excited about it.  At least people who receive the invitations might be willing to look up the etsy and see what is there. Of course, since I am queen of procrastination there is nothing on my etsy.  It is set up but past that there is nothing posted for sale. Just another thing I need to do.

Andy Warhol is Dead.

•9 February 2012 • Leave a Comment

25 years ago today Andy Warhol died.

Let us have a moment of silence for the most influential artist in modern history since Picasso.

I love Warhol. There is nothing he did that did not have an effect on me. The way he thought about life, art and both of their processes was well ahead of his time. Heck I think it is still ahead of our time.

In honor of his brilliant mind here are some of my favorite Warhol Quotes

Once you ‘got’ Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again.

An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.

Don’t pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

And to end my very favorite of all the things Andy Warhol ever said:

If you didn’t have fantasies you wouldn’t have problems because you’d take whatever was there. But then you wouldn’t have romance, because romance is finding your fantasy in people who don’t have it.

Laundry Day

•4 February 2012 • 1 Comment

Even though it’s Saturday today was all about staying in. I didn’t even change out of my pjs.
What I did do was some laundry. I also got rid of 275 items that are either being sold, donated or trashed. Most of the items were #4’s baby clothes. I pulled out a few additional pieces to eventually make into a quilt or dolls.
Considering how productive I was today I decided to get to the iron on t-shirts I’ve been meaning to make since I bought the supplies last September.
I totally skipped out on doing the dishes so I could craft for 2 hours. Good thing we have a giant box of plastic spoons.

This is the one I made for #4. Since we are a super soccer supporter family it’s only appropriate that her iron on monster is an American Outlaw.

#5 on the other hand got this one with a player which is appropriate since he started walking today. He will be our beast of a striker one day. I’m thinking the Landon Donovan of the 2030 World Cup when he’s just 19 years old. A mama can dream right?

I was having so much fun that I used some extra parts on an old tee for me. Who doesn’t love a flying giant eyeball?

Groundhog Day

•2 February 2012 • Leave a Comment

Well I did what i said by the end of January and went through my supplies and know what I need for the invitations and luckily it’s not more water color paper. Vellum is really expensive though.
Today started out pretty badly with the in-betweens missing the bus and having to wake the toddler up to tale them to school but I got some stuff done at least.
I finally remembered to buy the glitter and glitter glue for a calm down jar. Here’s my pinterest post about it (the photo is linked to the blog that I got it from)

I can’t wait to get a clear soda bottle so I can make one for the 14 month old.

The Start Up

•24 January 2012 • Leave a Comment

I don’t even really know what I am doing here but I am doing something which is better than nothing. Right?

I was thinking about doing a craft a week – but i can’t start that until I get to working on my sister’s wedding invitations.  She has already approved the mock-up and sent me wording and everything. I just need to paint 100 4×6 cards and 100 3×5 return postcards.

I also have some other stuff I want to start – but not too much because we are moving in the summer.  It is not 100% but it is 95%.   It won’t just be an in town move but to a new state and that is a big deal and since my husband will be moving about 3 months before (give or take a month)

So for the rest of January the goals are: go through supplies and figure out what I already have for the wedding invites and what I need to buy for the invites and response cards and then go buy it.

There’s a week left  so that shouldn’t be a huge problem.
