Christmas with Frantic Meerkat & Mincing Mockingbird

Christmas at our house is never "normal." This year it included a pink tree on the mantel adorned with a black bird on top, origami shirts and an awful lot of Wii golf and bowling.

Arbitrary Art Curiosity #8

Since I've been so lax in posting (just recovering from the Christmas rush, plus Unique LA), I thought I'd better at least showcase some of my recent favorites. This is Sinking Fairy Tale by poodlebreath who resides in Vancouver (don't you find the best things come from Canada, eh?) You can check out more of their art here.

Listen To Your Sister

I had this idea for a magnet for a while, but hadn't found the right nun (not exactly a lot to choose from...or maybe I'm picky). Discovered this one while looking for artwork for another card. I put it in my etsy shop yesterday and had already sold two when I realized I was out of magnet parts and the shipment wasn't arriving until today. Now along with trying to get ready for the show this weekend, I have to get magnets made to ship out tomorrow.

When will this stress end....oh yeah, when Christmas sales drop off and then I'll be unhappy because I'm not selling anything. Will I ever be satisfied?

A Weekend In San Francisco

This pretty much sums up our weekend in San Francisco. Except for all the food we ate...and ate...and ate. While Mincing Mockingbird was taking photos of stuffed birds at the California Academy of Sciences, I was taking photos of stuffed fish. And the last photo was a sketch he left under the glass at a table at Memphis Minne's Bar•B•Que Joint and Smoke House where we had the best barbecue chicken sandwiches. A very relaxing weekend, until the Bazaar Bizarre part where it was crazy busy and we met lots of cool and fabulous people and artisans. For more photos, see Mincing Mockingbird's blog here.
