frenetic


underdog table, originally uploaded by dressform.

before i give a little update.... i know this has been all over blogland - but the story of the missing Kim family has been on my mind the last few days.... and if you didn't believe in the power of good thoughts then you might want to reconsider... they just found Kati, Penelope and Sabine Kim.... and are on the look-out for James. let's hope they find him safe and sound as well.

so... sat. was a blast. being around creative women is always a treat. it took all of my willpower not to spend all my earnings on the other goodies offered. big huge thanks to shash and erica for hosting us in their fabulous apartment.

also thanks to lisa who brought me my pillow [which is SO perfect for me and even more GORGEOUS in person], and to mati for coming by and shopping!! i also got to meet the amazingly talented and warm diana as well as the super cool [she has great cat eye glasses!] jess . i really am hoping to spending more time with them. [jess, don't forget our pact!] thank you once again blog for being the perfect filter to find like-minded folks!

winter cards - ice skating boy and girl

so... underdog ink has been updated with all the leftover cards and candy jewels [stocking stuffers???] from the sale. i have 2 more sales - but me being me i made plenty of stuff to go around!

candy jewels

i am so very very behind on flickr .... but i have a giant stack of grading to attend to.... thus i'm looking forward to a barrage of amazing images....

and in case you didn't catch it shari was a super busy bee last week.... finishing up the compound word project , finalizing her handmade for the holidays AND writing the most lovely post for ship of fools . if you want to weigh in on the next book we read, be sure and head over there....

hopefully i'll be able to get back into the swing of things round here shortly! happy first week of december!

'Frenetic' seems like the perfect word for December madness... and a blog as 'perfect filter' for finding like-minded folk couldn't have been more apt a description.
Wonderful creative happenings over there too, I can see.
take care, g

Excellent cards! And I love the "Little Red Ponies" tee! I wish you had it in 4T and a girls size 5/6. My friend's girls are Pony-Addicts!

Sounds like you had a blast with the ladies!

alyssa said...

All your hard work looks like yummy eye-candy. Beautiful colors!

simple me said...

We all seem to be going around like mad. Busy, busy, busy...but the result of your hard work is fantastic. I LOVE the cards.
Happy December to you too :)

ps: Matilda is so great. I'm in love with her. When I got Matias, he was still very tiny and we couldn't tell if it was male or female. We were told he was a female. So his first name was...matilda.
That's why when the vet told us that he was a boy we change the name to matias as these names sound similar.

oh! i wish i could have been there to buy my earrings in person. and those rings are super cute too.

jenny vorwaller said...

sweet lisa....:) your tale would be empty in a *flash* if we all could have been there!!!! and..i know this is late..but the new design for underdog ink is fabulous! :))

seriously though...you are not only the most supportive in blogland...teaching...creating at galleries...and then running this business...and then LIFE too! :)))) how you do it, i'll never know...but i'm so glad that you do!!!

pat said...

my favs are the earrings and the skating cards. the former because they are very unusual. the latter because I used to skate OUTDOORS in the cold when I was a kid. No indoor, sissy skating for me!!

abby said...

Wow!
Your table is so bright and beautiful-like a warm ray of sunshine:)
I really think your cards are the *bees knees* and I am in love with all of your red earings. I bought Middlesex yesterday at the goodwill-I am so behind-but i am excited to read it!(that was one of your book club books-right?)
and-yes-shari is amazing!!

wendy said...
