"I could snog forever."


I had a fine day yesterday and today looks like it's headed in the right direction. I found out that I was accepted into Craftland and I also was given a couple fun and profitable projects to work on while I'm unemployed. I'm stressing out much less now because I think that the combination of showing at Bazaar Bizarre, Craftland, online sales and odd jobs should keep me afloat for awhile. This time off work will surely help me make sure I can handle getting enough inventory and displays for the holiday season.

I also made a new print inspired by a magnificent snog-fest (Hey, what else are we supposed to do when we can't go out?). " I could snog forever" is as romantic as a pair of elephant seals can get. I'd seen pictures of elephant seal's vicious fighting and it always looked a little like necking (if you don't look at all the blood). The addition of "lovey eyes" to my drawing turned a nasty fight into a sublime bit of snuggling. The print is now available in my shop for a bit less money since it's an open edition.

Congratulations on the upcoming events. I applied for Bazaar Bizarre in San Francisco but was turned down. :( They said they had 60 spaces and somewhere between 200-300 applicants. I'm currently unemployed as well -- for the first time in my life, and seeking employment, but toying with the idea of trying to make a go of it for awhile through the holiday season, as it is my busiest time of the year and I could use this time to put even more energy into it. Best of luck to you in your endeavors!

First: I'm happy to have you back with your daily blogging and that you are :o) again.
Second: Congrats on getting in to Craftland. I just checked them out and it looks like an awesome event. When one door closes another opens. Looks like you are going to be one busy little crafter in the days ahead. :o) P.S. Did you ship that card to me yet?
