Childrens ART

I have started doing art for children.  I was thinking the other day about what I might want to do in my Etsy store, and I realized it would be fun to do some art for children's rooms.  I noticed most people sell prints of art for children's rooms and I thought it would be interesting to see if I could sell original watercolors instead of prints.  All of my originals are one of a kind and will not be scanned and reproduced. 

I am selling them for the low price of $22.00 and they are all the same size 8x10 inches, which is a standard mat and frame size in all stores, making it easy to hang the art as soon as you get it.

If you are interested in one of my Originals head over to my Etsy store:

Children's art is a great gift idea for:
Baby Showers, One Year Old Birthdays. Christmas, Congratulations on a Pregnancy and many more...

Jammed Packed Long Weekend

I took the metro into LA with some friends.
Union Station is decorated for Christmas, I love when a tree has a theme, like gold.

We had a great time walking around and seeing all the weirdos dressed up as cartoon characters.
This trip we decided to go into the Roosevelt Hotel.  I always thought it would be off limits to go into the hotel and look around unless you were staying there, but it was the opposite!  Everyone was really nice and they even told us some of the history.  Apparently Marilyn Monroe lived in this hotel for a few months and this is where she did a famous photo shoot by the pool. 

After our hotel history lesson we headed to the hard rock restaurant to have a drink. 

We went to a few more bars for more drinks and dinner before we walked around Hollywood and Highland.

The night ended around 9pm with the train home.

We decided that we wanted to get out of the house and visit my cousin Amanda at their new house.
They just moved so we were able to help with some of the set up and decor.
We ended up going out for dinner and a few drinks and had a lot of fun.
Grant and Keith (Amanda's Husband)
Amanda's friend Lindsey and Amanda (my cousin) 
Our walk home was the most interesting part of the night! 
Hope everyone else had a good weekend too!

Black Friday Progress Report

Today is Black Friday in America, its where all these wild shoppers go out and spend all there money on things they probably don't need because they are caught up in all the sales that are going on in all the stores, turning the stores profits from red to black!

I am not one of these people lol.
I have decided that I am not going to buy much for people for Christmas mainly because I don't have much money and because I can't even think of anything that my family could need that they don't already have.
I in return am not expecting much =)

Yesterday we had a great Thanksgiving dinner made by my mom.  It was super yummy!

All the trees are a lovely fall orange red color, that is just beautiful. 
and finally a picture of Grant's van! 
Grant is off to surf and I am off to partay in LA woo to the hoo!

I can not get enough of these funny Target Commercials!
Whoever came up with this crazy black Friday Lady deserves an award.

And for the record, I will not be shopping on black Friday, I'll leave that for the seriously committed shoppers.

On the weekend I got really dressed up to go to Home Depot, lol.
I decided to try to rolled up boyfriend jeans and to be honest I don't really know it I pulled this look off.

And now presenting my NEW Model, GRANT!

New Sponsors

I have two new sponsors as of yesterday and both blogs are really worth looking at!

My Side is Pinker... is a fashion blog with spunk!
Below is a quote from Meg,
"I have found that nothing is more awkward than me going around campus asking if I can take pictures of strangers. ' I have a fashion blog, and um, you look great. Can I take your picture for my campus stylized day?...oh and while you're at it, will you do the macarena too?'"
She is funny and stylish and really you can't ask for more.


A Beautiful Feather is a blog written by Jahnavi, and she live in Dubai!
"I'm a management graduate (hope one day I will start my own business), a photography enthusiast, Photography-oholic (oh yes it is addictive), I just love taking pictures and I enjoy travelling, reading, painting, drawing but mostly learning and trying new stuff. I can never stop creating and imagining."

Both blogs are very interesting and are defiantly worth checking out.

Friday Progress Report

Wow time flys when you are doing nothing, hahhaha!  That is actually not true, but time really is flying and I still don't have a job!  Today I went on an employment agency interview, where I felt under qualified and stupid.  Oh well, who cares if I only type 35 words a minute ahahhahahha.  They offered to send me on a job interview in 2 weeks to a place that is an hour away from where I live and I would make $10.00 an hour.
So that means that I would make $80.00 dollars a day and pay $40.00 of it in gas every other day.
For some reason I am smart enough to realize that there is no way I can live off of 10 dollars an hour LOL.
If I sold 2 paintings a day or a few drawings a week I would make way more than that.

Anyways new topic!
I have been working on a lot of art for my Etsy store and I have a few commissioned projects that I have been asked to do for Christmas, so that is really good news.
I have also taken out a few ads on about four different blogs for my Art Store, so hopefully it takes off!

Last weekend Grant and I went and spent some time with my cousin Lacey and her husband Brandon.  The guys went surfing and us girls hung out.  Lacey has just found out that she is having a baby GIRL!  I got so excited last night that I decided to make her something, but its a surprise till I give it to her.
I might do a blog post on how I made it (the surprise that is).

Grant has been working everyday, although he is so tired by the time he gets home he goes straight to bed sometimes without eating!  I told him he is going to get too skinny, so I force him to eat LOL.

Sadly again I don't have any good progress pictures so I will leave you with a picture of our unripe Lemon tree in our backyard.

I see some margaritas in my near future!

Working on ART

This week I have been working on a lot of art so I can really fill up my Etsy store.  I feel like I should take advantage of the fact that I don't have a job yet and try to make and sell my art.  Today I added four new works of art to my store and I am currently working on a few Christmas commissions!  I have started a new series of paintings they are small, but they are originals rather than prints.
Do I Gnome you? 

Freshen your breath with my mint painting?

You can see more of my art in my Etsy store.

Is it already Christmas?

This weekend I worked on some art and we went and visited Lacey (my cousin) and Brandon.
Friday night we went out to dinner and while we waited for a table we decided to pose by the Christmas tree.  The whole mall is already decorated!

Look... We have a kid!  Just kidding this is my nephew.

My mom blends in perfect with the tree =)

This picture is the perfect proof that I need a new camera!
Hope everyone had a good weekend because its already Monday, the weeks are really flying by.
