A Lazy Hazy Weekend

...most definitely not! This weekend has not been the busiest I've seen, but there is definitely a buzz of activity to it, that's for sure!

Since I finished finals last week, this weekend has been my "catch up" week not just for homework, but for life! It's hard to realize how far behind you get in things and how they pile up until you've put them aside and let them build up. I shouldn't really say that I'm complaining, because most of my "catch up" work is very enjoyable work - and only a small fraction is actually school! I'm also baking bread today - yummy! But that takes about 5 minutes out of my day to put the ingredients into the machine -and in a while: let the house smell like fresh bread! I could never part with my carbs hee hee.

Now, Oreo on the other hand - he has a much easier weekend. I think his biggest battle today is deciding where he wants to sleep, and how to sucker me into giving him little treats....ohh, to be a cat!

Anyways, I have been working on various commissions today, and yesterday, for my fellow Etsy users. I have a few paintings to do, and a larger lot of ACEO's. I love doing the ACEO's, especially since I have pretty much been given free reign on them - they're like little canvases, full of potential, ready for my brush to lay color down on them and create the cutest little pieces! This buyer in particular who requested these pieces, is actually giving them away as Valentine's, and she's also requested a smaller lot for St. Patricks Day (which I love; who wouldn't love a day that celebrated green - my favourite colour??). What a kind buyer :)

On the topic of Valentine's Day - I have a set of Valentine cards available in my store! They're based on paintings of mine that have had a more romantic or love theme to them, including a very recent painting (my first original addition to my store for 2008) "A Spring of Love".

I'm also working towards starting a second Etsy store: I'm pretty sure the link doesn't work, because I haven't activated the "Seller" aspect of it. I'll be using this store to sell my other art pieces that don't really fall into the category of Jellybeans. I thought about posting them together, but I didn't really want to compromise the uniform style I have of Jellybeans. I really like it - so a second store was the answer!

Oh your Oreo looks just like my cat Linus! Linus loves napping also. He's an all-day nappin' kinda cat :)
