Urban Craft Uprising - Seattle, July 10th!

Daniel Smith was our last stop before heading home. All in all it was a good day with my new owner. What adventures will we go on next?

We drove by Pioneer Square on our way to my owners favorite art store Daniel Smith.

We stopped in at Uptown Espresso for an iced vanilla latte. Luckily monster didn't like, so I got to drink it all!

We were hungry so we had some Pagliacci Pizza...yum. The monster decided he likie pizza!

These are my new rings. I also have one in pink...aren't they fab. Love them! I will post the link to the artist later. Don't have the card with me.

Kennedy School House - McMenamins - Oregon

This is a curvy hallway with amazing art on the wall. This hotel is very whimsical with lots of it!

This is such an amazingly cool place. Kennedy School House is an actual school house renovated into hotel with a restaurant, many bars, theater, soaking pool and great artsy shopping area near by. The Alberta Street Neighborhood is just 8 blocks from hotel with fantastic galleries and restaurants.We had a great family mini vacation here. I want to go back without the kids sometime!

Another BP image I need to share

What a great visual to represent this tragedy. I am not religious but I think it is time to say a few prayers. This poster was designed by Burton Durand.

BP's New Logo (designer unknown)

Haven't posted for a while. I saw this on my facebook page news feed and had to share it! A great new logo design for bp. A picture is worth a thousand words! The designer is unknown. Great design who ever you are!

Spent the day working on a tutorial

Spent the day yesterday learning so much from a tutorial by Blog Spoon Graphics: I created all my elements in Illustrator CS3 and then moved them into layers in Photoshop CS3. I learned so much about layers. I am a little rusty on Photoshop, but am now getting up to speed. I have so many other ideas I need to finish before I start school on Monday. That's right I'm going back to school. I need to finish my Associates degree and then I think I'm going into teaching. Really want to teach art in elementary school. Anyway need to go and get my books!
