croissant cards + 4 day weekend wrap

this past 4 day weekend i didn't do a whole lot. my plan to craft nonstop did not happen. we also planned to hit the aquarium and the zoo for a picnic, but that did not happen. i ended up seeing these movies: the street with no name, superman returns, down and out with the dolls, quintet, bells are ringing
prey for rock and roll, and eating a lot of good food. z and i went to pompeii for the first time on friday night. early on sunday morning i went to lula with stephanie and dan and ran into my boss from MP there. z took me to green zebra sunday night for our 3 month and then on monday night zachary, james, kris racer + a roommate of his, dan, rani, and i went to vintage wine bar for their $4 pizza night and i drank a really nice riesling. if you like rock and roll/punk rock girl movies, i suggest you see 'down and out with the dolls' and 'prey for rock and roll'. tuesday night we went to nathan's roof and watched the neighborhood fireworks and grilled. such a nice weekend.



last night i made 80+ of these croissant cards. the inside message reads: "sorry i've been so flaky."

you can see my test run of the card on the sampler sneak peeks page since i made 25 for the summer sampler, but have since improved on the design. i am really psyched about these. i would totally buy one to give to someone i've been flaky to. after you look at the word flaky enough it looks like it's spelled wrong.

does anyone have experience with zencart who would like to show me since i'd love to put a shopping cart up on my site soon! that stuff is confusing!

ps. diana reminded me that today is my two year anniversary here at ye olde law firm!

looking at a word long enough...

i hate when that happens, and it happens all the time. i drive myself crazy, thinking i've spelled things wrong! worse yet, jill's emailing me about finding someone to do some sewing for me, and she started off an email talking about "the craigslist post for the sewer" and i'm like, what's wrong with your sewer? clogged toilet? oye. i need a nap.

also, the inside track on the next big thing is: farm animals. you heard it here, first. i'll bet you $10 that fred flare FLIPS OUT if you make some farm animal cards.

love!

Re: looking at a word long enough...

hee hee hee. yeah, i find when i look at words long enough, i'm like "WTF!"

farm animals, eh? too bad i love exotic animals over farm animals and if i screw up a drawing of an exotic animal, not as many people will notice, whereas if i draw a cow with abnormally large ears, people will notice. oh, they will notice.

Re: looking at a word long enough...

hehe, you should start drawing farm animals with one weird feature- cows with big ears, sheep with REALLY fluffy fleeces, chicken with big feet.. or something like that. leigh's animal farm.. of mutants!

If I look at your croissant cards long enough I start to see crabs with faces on them. I'm going to look away now.

But HAW HAW at your pun. Love it.
