292: today i feel magnets

sometimes things will rattle around in my head for a long time before i make them tangible. kind of like these magnets.

this is just a first round, but look how cute they are! these magnets are laminated so you can write on them with dry erase markers. a wipe with a damp cloth cleans these right up so they’re always ready for whatever the day brings. currently there are six hairstyles to choose from, and the color possibilities are endless. so much fun!

288: you can do anything (sort of…)

today’s post is a quote by david allen (author of getting things done) that we can all take a lesson from. and by all of us, i mostly mean me. all things stephemera have been hectic lately, and sadly my blog was the one to suffer. but i am here to resume my regular posting schedule. thanks everyone for continuing to read. i can’t wait to show you what i have been working on! :)

update: vacation & artfest

i’m back from vacation! it was amazing. puerto rico is truly beautiful, and the coastline is simply gorgeous. we were mainly in the san juan area, but visited fajardo for a day. we wanted to go to the observatory in arecibo, but that will be on the next visit. we ate, swam, ate, laughed, ate, snorkeled, ate, toured, climbed, relaxed, played, loved and seriously ATE. it was lovely and the perfect vacation. hopefully i will have some photos to post of the coral reef we visited soon.

and man, a week is such a short amount of time. when you are on vacation and when you return and have just a week to prepare for art fest. eek! i’ve been busy so far this week getting things sorted for friday’s event. there will be some brand new art and old favorites, like the bitter mermaid in the previous post.
i’m really excited to show with a bunch of other amazing vendors. if you are in gainesville, i hope to see you friday!

272: june

hello, june!

this june is going to be a very exciting one. there’s lots to do. remember these wedding invitations? well, the date is here!

and summer vacation! i am heading to puerto rico for a week for a much-needed, very-welcomed vacation. i can’t wait for sight-seeing and tropical drinks.

a week after i get back, i will be participating in Friday Art Fest, an event held in conjunction with Gainesville’s Friday Art Walk. check out the facebook event here. and don’t forget to like my page here. i am very excited about this event and happy to show again at the venue. :)

258: love birds & wedding bells

so when i’m not posting, i’m usually working. and when i’m not working, i’m usually playing. and sometimes i’m playing AND working!
two of my favorite people are getting married soon, and i was honored and absolutely thrilled to do their wedding invitations and RSVP cards. i really enjoyed this project, especially because the final product looks so nice printed on linen paper. LOVE!
