oh my word...

...thanks so much for the sweet comments, ladies =) You all rock! I haven't had a chance to visit your blogs in the last few days, but hopefully today there'll be a lull at work and I can make the rounds...=) see what everyone's been making! yay!

As for me..lunch hour is almost over, so a quick post: Made these Betty Boop cards with a cute stamp Z found at a garage sale for me a while back...=) I colored her in with watercolor pencils and stitched the hearts around...they look really Valentines-ish, but really they're just thanks you cards....lol

And I got my Dozens' kit this weekend...had to play...
Also made some stuff I still have to share..and stuff I can't share...tee hee...
Last night Z and I got to go on a date courtesy of birthday money from Mom & Wayne (you guys are the best..thanks!) and we went to see Persepolis .....an animated film for adults. lol...we've been dying to see it and saw it was still playing and finally went...it was awesome: awesome story, awesome animation...awesome. =) I was giggling and almost crying and I loved the designs and everything...super-cool. =)
Also, feeling super-humbled and excited and jittery that I get to continue trying to become a Fashionista...eek! I can't believe all the amazing talent on that list!! Trying to remain calm...the only thing that goes through my mind everytime I get selected for something like this is when I applied to film school, and my admissions advisor asked me if I thought I was a good artist, and when I answered "eer..I dunno...I guess so." She was like, "Great! That means you're probably okay, because chances are if you think you're God's gift to art, you're horrible." lol...weird analogy? Probably...lol..sorry. It just reminds me to not get too excited and to remember why it is I do these things and just keep plugging away and learning and growing in my art no matter what....=) Anyways, that's all for today! Lots to do this week: some deadlines, some drawing, some painting to do, some Etsy-shop-opening-already to do (lol)....should be fun. =) Happy day everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

I just love your new haircut!

Congrats on making it to the next round at SIS! I'm so cheering for you ;) and I get your analogy, it's so true. I've learned to not get my hopes up at an early age. I couldn't bare the dissapointment!
Good Luck!!
