Anyway, this morning I got a little note from Kate @ http://allthingspaperblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/sunday-shop-of-week-sandy-newhart.html that because I won her Easter contest in which I entered my little bunny arrangement, that I needed to send her information regarding myself and my craft so she can do an interview with me for her beautiful blog, "Shop of the Week"! I forgot, (so sorry Kate) I never realized that Easter was already next weekend. So I scrambled to get information together, copying and pasting info from every site that my daughter Melissa hooked me up with then .....tried to upload pictures of my work space for her and my artwork that inspires me and.... you got it ... no way, it won't let me download :( I gave up and had breakfast with my brother Bobby this morning and as usual he paid haha! We always have a great time and great conversation when we hang out. Then I came home and checked my shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/SandyNewhartDesigns?ref=pr_shop. To my wonderful surprise Kate sent me a message to say my shop was featured live on her blog, pictures and all! What a beautiful page it is. I was soooo happy but curious..... still how in God's name did that happen? How did those pictures show up? I wish I knew for the next time. Like I said many times in previous blogs it's all "trial and error" with me. I guess I'll have to figure out what I did so I can do it again haha! So my "Shop of the Week" looks amazing on Kates blog and I'm honored to be on it!
|This has to be one of my favorites!|
Then a little after two I decided to go to my shop and make some arrangements and wreaths! I did say I was going to try some pastel items with soft relaxing music... uhhh no, that wasn't happening. I wasn't feeling it so I put on my usual music, Usher, Lady Gaga, J Lo, Pit Bull, etc.... and then started to get motivated. Ok so I did one (1) pastel arrangement and I do love it but then I looked around for my next inspiration and it was..... 2 flourescent lime green plush frogs! I couldn't help myself. So now I put away the pastel flowers and start looking for my favorites, hot pink, lime green. Lots of color...I finished the wreath and I LOVE it, it's really adorable, but VERY bright :). Now for my next piece.... I look at the pastels and .... nope I couldn't do it. I pulled out bright yellow, purple, hot pink silks for my next little piece. So I did try but I didn't fail I just continued to do what I love, how I love to do it! So the pastels will have to wait for another day, the music, however, will NEVER change, it motivates me to keep moving and creating. So all together not a bad day, I'm going to start posting my newest items, then sit and relax to watch a Yankees game.... on TV with my cup of tea.....
Enjoy the day!
