so by now you should have realized that i am a complete dork
and so are most of my friends.
because of this we do dorky things….
like make themed presents and cakes for our teenage friends birthdays.

a friend of mine ( going to stop calling her my roommates little sister)
turned 15 this weekend
i am to blame for her two most dorkyest televised obsessions…
Battlestar Galactica and Doctor Who.

being the unemployed broke ass person that i am
i realized that i could not buy her something amazing
hell i can hardly afford bus fair
so i decided to put that BFA to good use
and make her a present.
with some pva glue
computer paper
and the knowledge i gained from
4 years of painting classes
and the summer Ireland book arts
this was created

i also made her cake….
which would have been better
if i had the ability to raid my mom cake decorating supplys…
but alas they are in rockford
and the cake and i were in MKE.
but it still turned out fairly amazing
for what i was working with..



YAY! i finished something!

today i was taking at nap around 10 am….
(yeah i know to early to be taking a nap but whatever i was tired)
i ment to wake up around noon.
though that did not happen at all…

when i did wake up to though
it was to laurens mom calling me downstairs.
saying something about haveing a something for me….

now i was half asleep still
rubbing my eyes
stumbling about
triping over the dogs.
and she showed me this box

saying that her father (who recently pased away)
painted in acrylic
and her mom uses oil and has no use for the acrylic paints
so this box was just sitting around not being used.



she then opened the box

and my jaw dropped to the floor.
some of the tubes of paint had yet to even be open…

and then i saw this…
12 jars of ground pigment!
i love working with egg temprea….
and im almost out of pigment.

there were also a bunch of brushes.

im still in aww.
now i really have no excuse for not starting something.

its windy!
