um... all about me?

doily prize

are you ready for some shame-less self promotion? first though - THANK YOU so much for your repsonse to shari and my project! we are thrilled that you are so on board with us. it feels amazing. [no pressure, right? no pressure]

second miss gracia wins the prize for correctly guessing what i was recording.... i was counting the emails that i got [in different accounts] every day. gracia... email me to claim your prize [and this isn't a nigerian wire money to an offshore account scam].

so... i know many of you already know this, but i thought i should talk about it here too - incase. [and this is where i start to blush]. jan the brilliance behind poppytalk - one of my alltime favorite design blogs asked if i'd do an interview with her. she published it yesterday on design sponge's guest blog . thank you jan for asking whip smart questions and for being a big cheerleader of my work. it really means a lot to me.

on that post jan also revealed my latest web-endeavor when it comes to my work. i now have some work on the beholder . i'm really excited about this - i see so much work i just love on that site. i also love the idea of making art available and affordable. suzanne [the owner] tells me that she's been making sales to nice folks all over the country and even in far away places - so cool! i hope my work finds happy homes.

also yesterday i was blown away by jenny's drawing of me. she asked if she could draw my portrait and well.... jenny i love what you did. you are a huge talent, a kind soul, and a wonderful artist!

i think, friends that this may be it for this week. i am feeling the crunch of deadlines and the like. i will try to poke around internet land, but if you notice i'm absent - you know why! happy wednesday! [thanks for sticking thru all the me me me]

Me, me, me... I love, love, love your me, me, me! And I've been somewhat absent from the ol' computer because I've been (me, me, me) a little swamped with work. But, now, what I really wanted to say was - OH! MY! GOSH! I WON! Wow... I'm in shock, I'm in disbelief... Aside from my fingers on the keyboard, the rest of me is on the floor... I'm completely floored!
take care, g xo
(Love the new paint chip works too... that goldfish coming apart at the seams especially... beautiful, clever, you!)

Lisa your paint chips are STUNNING (i think I overuse that word re your work, but it's TRUE). Can I post a pic of the fish and the clouds with likns to you and beholder on my blog? They totally go with the colours of my last post, I love how colours come together at the same time. x
