banana time

just think of where you are

Some one posted on Alchemy, on Etsy, a site for handmade things, that she would like to make a trade. Below are some specific things she DOES NOT WANT.

"Items I'm not interested in at the moment:
Jewellery (because I make two different lines)
Soaps, creams, and lip balms
Art ie; painting, sculpture
crafty, or rustic looking items"

(Thinks to self: "I know. I will go on Etsy, the super-craftiest place on the web, and ask for things that are specifically NOT crafty." GENIUS!)

As a side note, I finally visited and I laughed SO HARD that I cried. I hope to do it again sometime. I may have to buy her book.
On her blog, she just tears apart stupid crafts and stupid crafters. I kind of want to make really awful things on purpose so that she'll find me and be inspired. Twisted, I know.

I occasionally vent my displeasure on facebook, but this is a nice, formal blog of hilarity.

mini paintings

Honestly, I think this is the way to go in terms of bringing real live artwork into your life.
Teeny, tiny paintings can be surprisingly affordable if the artist in question is willing to part with them.
I'm usually willing to part with them. For a while I am very attached, and then I know when it is ok to let them run free into the world, cheering up everyone else.
Because that's the point - I paint things that are soooooooo ridiculous that you *have* to smile.
