Peacock Dress

I'm about 2/3 of the way done with my goal of making new dresses/skirts for 2009! Whoa!
Here's the latest:
Peacock Feather Dress

I wish I could explain why I'm into peacock feathers lately. At some point (when I know what to use it for) I'll be embroidering one as well. For now I'm rather pleased with how this screen print came out (even if it's a little smudged in the eye. Oh well!) Next up is a skirt with pockets made from a feather print I found at Hancock a few months ago. Hmm, I'm going to have to look up what feathers symbolize. I'm just surrounding myself with them!

Also, I'm excited to announce that it looks like I'll be putting some of my embroidery pieces on display at the Hotei Gallery in Rogers Park. I went in there on Saturday and spoke with one of the owners who told me that if I had artwork they'd be happy to put it up! It was THAT simple. On top of that, they're hosting an erotica exhibit/benefit this Saturday and some of my crocheted penises will be on display. I made six of them over the weekend. :)

Things are looking pretty good right now. I'm also in the midst of getting a bunch of monoglues together for auditions with my acting coach. Hopefully I'll be able to find some auditions soon!

Happy Monday ya'll!

Mama Sass 2012

My co-worker was just talking to me about Sarah Palin running for President in 2012 to which I said, "Palin is the last person who should run for president. I should run for president before she does."

He giggled and said, "Your slogan could be Crochet for Peace."

I kinda want to run for president now. :)

So Long Poster Class

Last week I had my last poster class. While I'm sad it's over I have a bunch of new skills that I've already started putting to use. Until I have those new projects completed, here's the last poster I made in class:

Once I find some cello bags big enough to ship them in I'm adding those prints to my Etsy store. :)

And this one is now on the wall in my kitchen.
Now or Never, Bub

Other than that, I've got a lot going on this week. I'm working with a new acting coach on Thursday to go over monologue work. I'm desperately in need a refresher. Then this weekend Babes With Blades will be gathering together to discuss who will be the winner of our Joining Sword & Pen Competition. We have some good candidates, so I'm looking forward to seeing which one we choose to produce. And tomorrow I'm going to the dentist. I haven't gone in about seven years. Needless to say, I'm a little nervous about it.

Well, until next time, dear readers!

The poster class I'm taking is almost over. I have one session left. It's been a great class and I wish I had the means to take more classes at Lillstreet right now, but money's tight as always. Le sigh. But there's no reason to let such things get a girl down! Here's my latest print...
There Are Never Enough...

Despite the few faux pas here and there I'm really happy with how it turned out and I can't wait to find a place to hang it in my house. :)
