An Artful Agenda

I'm very fortunate to be able to have my artwork included in various projects and An Artful Agenda is no exception. The etsy shop of An Artful Agenda sells Daily Planners, August to August Planners, Diaries, Universal Planners, and Lesson Planners. 5% of all sales is donated to Arts Education in Public Schools.

Oh hey, there's my Bob Dylan print and on the bottom, several of my lino cut fishies!

More fishie prints and then monsters from my Monster Haiku zine. :)

I've gotten my mitts on the August to August planner and the Universal Planner and let me tell you, they're adorable!

Details from the etsy shop: An Artful Agenda is beautifully hand-lettered throughout and includes all major U.S. holidays as well as some Canadian, Jewish, other multicultural holidays. The pages are unlined, allowing you to sketch, plan, write or anything you choose. The planner is a handy 4.25" x 5.5" x 1/2" allowing you to take it everywhere.

This is a quality artisan product professionally printed on a beautiful, rich ivory 100% post-consumer recycled paper. The pearlescent cover stock has a beautiful sheen that picks up the light and causes the color to shift. It is also extremely durable and even somewhat water resistant.

In a Magazine & Currently Working On

I'm very honored to have a photo selected for the Childhood Issue of Light Leaks Magazine. I took this photo of my neice with a Diana+ . I'm so stoked to have been published again! Yay!

Here's a peek of a new project. Yes, I know, another project. Well, it seems as though I have missed making lino block prints and had to carve this beauty asap. I'll show a finished scan in a few days.

Painting the Annie, Jr. Set

First weekend: Priming and planning. These large "things" are on wheels and are 4 feet wide and 15 feet tall. They have three sides each. I painted mostly everything on my own, with the exception of the priming part. My hubs helped out on that.

Second Weekend: The easiest side almost complete! City Skyline. The chair is there for comparison.

Adding Details.

The Orphanage side done! My favorite!

The last weekend and I'm getting frantic. Planning the mansion side.

And finally! The completed mansion side, finished on the day before opening.

All together: 720 square feet!
This is my third performance set! Here's the Alice in Wonderland, Jr. set and the Nunsense set.

Newest Addition to the Family

What can I say? We did it. We talked about it for weeks and we did it. We got a puppy.

His official name is Dexter McNugget and his nicknames include: Dex, Dex-a-lex, Dexlexia, Rolodex, and the occasional Dirtbag. He's almost four months old and he's a fluffy, long haired Dachaund. He's almost completely crate trained and can follow a couple of commands.

We're considering it to be an early birthday present for Mazzy. She's quite fond of him but gets frustrated when he doesn't listen to her commands. He listens to me mostly since I spend almost all my extra time with him. I think Mazzy will be excited when Dex finally learns to fetch.

Being a new puppy owner is exhausting. I'm constantly watching him to make sure he doesn't have an accident in the house or snatch Maz's toys to tear up. While writing this post he's snatched a tshirt from the clothes hamper and a flipflop. It's nice to see him act like a puppy though, it's a change of pace from his moping around the first few days he was with us.

Having a puppy around make me miss the old family dog Nikki. She was a huge yellow Labrador and was the smartest damn dog I have ever been around. I only lived with her for about 4 years but wow, what a dog. I could ask her questions, "You hungry? You need to go out? How are you?" and she'd respond every time. She was a guard dog, the master of the house, and a great buddy to have around. When I hear Dexter's nails on the kitchen floor, I think of Nikki. Dexter dude, you've got some big paws to fill.

Good News, Everyone!

Rock Ranch Chicken
This morning I got an email from SlowExposures with a list of accepted entries and I'm so happy to say that yes, my name was in that list! Hurrah! Only 93 photos were selected from the 641 entered. Ahh! I'm excited! I got into SlowExposures two years ago & here's that post.

Now I have to figure out how to get a print of this image asap. The closest photography shop that'll work with 120 film is over 50 miles away. Oh boy!

Lately I've been in way over my head with a huge project and I hope to get back to regular blogging soon! I'll post pictures of the big project, too!
