Hey guys! Sorry that I've been MIA here for a while, but things have been busy - school started up recently and I'm still trying to get into the swing of things - trying to find my creative self in the meantime. I've been exploring so many different mediums even since school started, and since time is pressed, I find myself trying to make shortcuts in my crafting - things that I can do to get the same look in a shorter amount of time. Sometime soon I'm expecting to post some pictures of some ATCs I've made - I'm still making an ATC a day, but just haven't gotten around to posting daily. Also, I've started a new business. I'll be working on putting some stuff up in my new Etsy shop today, but we'll see if I can find the time.
The shop itself is called onestopmixedmedia - basically a place that you should be able to go and get EVERYTHING you might need to start an art journal for yourself. Or any other kind of mixed media or collage for that matter. I'm going to be selling paper and collage kits full of papers (obviously!), embellishments, ephemera, etc. Also in the shop, once I can sell some paper kits and make some money to put back into the business, I'm going to start selling paint (in all colors), gesso (white, black, and clear), glues and adhesives that I love, pens and markers that I find work well, etc, etc, etc!
By now you may have wondered what the title of this post is all about - am I hosting a collage - a - thon? Nope, not me, but there is this other lady on the Milliande message boards that is having one. On that site to be honest with you. It sounds so fun, and I'm playing! It doesn't cost anything to do - it starts this Saturday at 1:00pm Eastern, and continues until 1:00pm the next day. I'm really excited for this - I'll probably do some work in my art journal - maybe do a couple ATCs, etc. I'll probably Ustream the whole time.
Speaking of Ustream, I just realized that I don't think I posted anything about Ustream on here yet. Sorry to get it to you so late guys!! Basically what's been going on is every day, supposedly at 5:30pm Eastern I go live on Ustream. Sometimes I'm way early (so much as a couple of hours) and sometimes I'm late (by 45 minutes or so) but I've been trying to broadcast each and every day. I get my creativity fix (I get to create in front of a live audience) and everybody else gets inspired!! Click here to go to my show page!!
