Art for Me!

I always showcase my art everywhere, blogger, facebook, etc but I wanted to showcase some art made for me :)

My friend Rosie made this for me around November I believe!! It's me as a zombie. I got a lot of compliments on this picture. Brainssss!!!!

This one is a little hard to see and I apologize for that but it's a gift I got for my birthday in November!! It's too large to scan since it's already framed. But it's a picture of Hello Kitty in a Kimono on rice paper. I love it!!

This is something my friend Ryan created for me!! It is beyound unique and I'm using it as my Facebook default now!! The hair is amazing I could never recreate it!!

And last but certainly not least, a Hello Kitty Christmas made by my friend Tamara :) Mmmm a tree full of cupakes with cupcake gifts at the bottom?? I'm in Heaven!! She made this as an art trade with me although I'm not entirely finished with her piece just yet >.>

I love getting gifts, but more importantly hand made gifts!! That is why I love these pieces the most!!

Sweet Holiday Cards for Sale!!

Hey everyone!! I listed a new item in my Etsy shop. Last year I made some Christmas cards to sell at a craftshow. Unfortunately the night before the craft show I got into a bad car accident and was not able to make it :( 1 year later, I still have 2 packs of the Christmas cards left.

I missed the art show once more thanks to my hectic Holiday schedule, working black friday, thanksgiving, saturday, sunday, nearly everyday!!! So I decided to add them to my Etsy shop instead :D

To order a set be sure to check out the listing at:

I also decided to discontinue a couple of other items in my shop because they were not selling well :( and it was costing to much to relist them. Christmas is approaching fast, it's almost December already!!

To see my entire selection of handmade goods, be sure to go to the shop front at:

For the rest of the day today I'll be making some gift tags for the presents I wrapped.

Squishy T-shirt Design

I flip flopped a lot of pieces in my portfolio and added some new ones. I wanted to make some posts about them in my blog. One of the earlier pieces I added was a t-shirt design for the EveryoneLovesRobots. A merchandise design!!

James already provided me with a solid concept, all I had to do was illustrate it for him.

If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself on a t-shirt or more (to support his music project), be sure to check out EveryoneLovesRobot's store:

Hope everyone has a good day :)

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hey everyone! Thursday was my birthday I just wanted to briefly share some things of what I had been up to :)

First of all, the day before my birthday my parent's ended up giving me my present early since I was going shopping ON my birthday, just in case I wouldn't buy what they got me... and what they got me was a cupcake maker!

I tweeted about one when I had initially saw it. The thought of making cupcakes in about 5 minutes is a great idea. I suck at baking so much. I never know how much mix to put in the little muffin tins, or how long to leave them in. I don't have the patience to wait 20 minutes, and usually burn myself getting them out of the oven. This machine is a godsend.

I did make one batch of cupcakes in it so far. It makes eight little mini cupcakes. I made a recipe for exactly eight, and spooned about 2 and a half tablespoons of mix into each cavity. You check to see if they are ready with a toothpick, just like the real oven, and ta-dah!

It makes more than just cupcakes though. It has instructions for brownie bites, muffins, appetizers, etc. I could make pancake puffs! Oh and mini pies :D

On my ACTUAL birthday, I did go shopping. Here are the things I bought:

Timberland Boots with some financial help from my brother...

some cute argyle sweaters from Target. Argyle is one of my most all time favorite things :)

Amy Sedaris' craftbook at Books a Million! I had her cooking / entertaining / whatever book this is the second one of hers. She's a very funny lady :) maybe more about this book in another post...

and these plaid slippers from Aeropastale (not photographed because well, they're on my feet)!! Super comfy.

We also ate at CiCi's pizza which is super yummy :) especially the mac and cheese pizza!

I got little things here and there from my friends here at home too. Not to mention the nice birthday tweets, and facebook wall posts :) what a great birthday!!

Happy (belated) Halloween!!

Hey everyone, just updating the blog :D

Halloween is gone and past and I just wanted to post of the stuff I got into!! I carved two pumpkins:

A cuppycake :D

And a ring pop!!

They weren't difficult to carve, I just purchased some artificial pumpkins and cut a hole at the top to drop a electric tea light into. I created the designs in Illustrator (black and white) and printed them out. I then taped the designs to the pumpkins with scotch tape and cut out all the black sections.

And now for the costumes, my friend Kara was Lady Kruger

And I dressed as Hit Girl from the movie KickAss

It was a blast!! More updates coming soon :)
