new schtuff!

Today I woke up to a renewed spirit of sorts. I've gotten out of the after christmas funk and am ready to dive right into 2010. I can't wait to see what this year holds. I've got new things in the works that you will see in the shop very soon. yes, that 2nd photo is a t-shirt. I've wanted to do them for some time but wanted to get them right and I wanted them to be fabulous quality and under 20 bucks.
In other fun happenings....my sailor's valentine has been published in jan/feb issue of cloth.paper.scissors.....I also found a fab artist, Sarah Wyman, in the same issue. check her out!such inspiring faces and texture.

I'm celebrating 1000 sales this week. I dreamed I would get there one day. I dreamed that I could make art for a living. I dreamed I could sell a piece of something I made. Its been over 2 years since first joining etsy. Yes, this is happening to me...I'm quiet sure that i'm asleep.

"All dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them."......Walt Disney

I think the key words here are "courage" and "pursue".....They are always active....they never fear.....they are consistent.....and unrelenting. Realizing your dreams is not something that just "happens" to you....but in a way I'm glad. That means we have control over our lives AND our dreams. Its refreshing to know and to never forget.

after all.

it all started with a mouse..........


I guess you can tell, its that time of year again. We are headed to Disney world and I get so overwhelmingly inspired by the man that dared to dream. What we see today by far surpasses what I believe Walt had dreamt. He passed on his dream and it scattered into millions of minds and it flourishes in his cast members, his imagineers, his animators.....his admirers that grew up with watching him on tv. Walt Disney left a legacy.....of which a little part dwells in a special place in my heart.
I'm doing a blog giveaway to celebrate a milestone for Tim's Sally. Leave a comment on this "dreams" blog post and let me know what your favorite Disney character is and why......and you'll be entered into a drawing for a free coaster set and pocket mirror of your choice from my shop. I will announce the winner on the 13th of Dec. so you have until then to leave your comment.
