I've been a busy bee preparing to open my Etsy shop.
I'm literally spending my every awake moment painting like a mad woman, except when I'm with my boys, cooking, folding laundry, or sleeping.
Note that I didn't say "cleaning." Cleaning has gone to the bottom of my priority list, and our home looks, less than well... desirable. I hope to catch up on cleaning before Thanksgiving.
Today, I wanted to share some of the artwork I've recently created for the shop. These are my grainy Instagram photos, but you get the idea :)
I'm turning them into prints. What do you think?
Shop opening announcement coming soon. Please stay tuned!
* * *In the meantime, I managed to do a teensy bit of fall decorating.
I was inspired by Myquillyn's eye-patched decorative bust and Stacey's polka dot pumpkins (and you might want to check out Stacey's gorgeous Halloween party, too!)
So my fall decor isn't that original. I guess I used up the "originality" part of my brain when I was painting! But I put my own twist to them and wanted to share with you how quick and easy those projects were.
This polka dot pumpkin.
I just used this oil-based paint pen in gold to paint the polka dots. Make sure to let the dots completely dry before touching the pumpkin. I ended up smudging a few parts because I was impatient. It only takes a few minutes for the paint to dry.
And this burlap eye patch.
I just cut a piece of burlap ribbon into a heart shape and applied the fabric glue all around the outline to keep it from fraying. Then I attached a piece of white yarn to the burlap using the same glue.
I better go back to do more painting now!
Hope you have a wonderful start to the week.
