oh was that ever a week! i learned to let a lot go this week. no, i was not going to finish the big pink doily drawing that i wanted to send for my upcoming show at the levy gallery ; no, i was not going to get the handout for my creative process class done [still have to do that today]; no, i was not going to be able to have lunch with a friend; no, i was not going to make a lavish dinner on wed. night; no, i was not going to get to try out my new polaroid telephoto lens [so very excited about this!]....
but it does feel like i can pretty much slow down and breathe again.... my 2 big boxes are happily on their way - the list of their contents and instructions emailed to the proper folks, phone calls caught up with yesterday, blogs read [mostly] this morning... i think i might even catch up with flickr later this weekend !! yay!!
so... risa i owe you a mini picture... but i hope you will be patient... next week... today.... it's all about the CUPCAKE!
we really wanted to put up an awning, but you aren't allowed one unless you get a permit from the city of oakland, so we did our very own special flat awning - which in the end i think is better than a "real" awning - since everything in this store is fake anyway!
my drawings of inedible cupcakes [oh drat those poisonous flowes]. i'll post more of these individually over the next few days]
tara's cupcake sleeve installation
i love this photo... tara painting the floor....
and my absolute FAVORITE photo... the shadow on the wall was just the perfect bonus!!
you can see the whole set of photos here . you gotta check out the cute softie cupcakes in our display case !! and tara made the most adorable buttons which i don't have a photo of yet. hey... maybe i can sell any extras here for her... that's an idea!
i think i'll be back to regular posting next week.... and don't forget to read shari's post on ship .....
hoping you are all having a nice and easy weekend!
