It's my "Etsyversary" Giveaway!

You guys! On August 21st I will have been on Etsy for 10 whole years! It's time to celebrate!

Back when I started my etsy shop on August 21st 2006, I think I had a postcard pack. Like ONE pack! Slowly but surely I expanded; I experimented with different types of prints, buttons, art trading cards, pocket mirrors, magnets, greeting cards and more. Some of them lasted, some of them didn't.  Now I have around 130-140 items! All of this led to other things like gallery shows, indie craft shows and other random pop-up events. It's been a long journey and I am so thankful for every minute of it! So many times I've felt like quitting it all, but all my fans, friends and family never stopped encouraging me. I would not still be here if it wasn't for all of you!

To celebrate and show you how much I love you,
I'm giving away my ORIGINAL painting titled "Nostalgia." It's a 12"x12" acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas!!! I'm also giving away a print and a pouch!!

Nostalgia

Entries will be taken from 12:00 am August 13th through 12:00 am, August 21st.
Winners will be announced Saturday August 21st!

Before you go, one more thing. All this will be followed by a grand Etsy Shop sale on August 21st! You don't want to miss this! Discount will be good on EVERYTHING including original paintings!

Enter below.  Good luck!

Andrea's tattoo

My dear friend Andrea got a really nifty tattoo featuring two of my paintings combined!
What a fun idea! I hope I get a chance to see it in real life before she moves back to Colorado.

Art All Night 2016

Another Art All Night came and went. It's a one day art show for anyone who wants to join! I usually participate every year. It's always a fun time.

I don't have a lot to say, except wanted to show you some photos from my day! ^_^

First thing we stopped at Thick Bikes. I got a new seat, and boy is it sweet! (LOL Why am I rhyming today??) Right outside the shop were several Baron Batch pieces. Love!

Untitled
After a short bike ride, we went on over to Church Brew Works. What a fantastic place! It's literally a restaurant inside of an old church. So weirdly awesome. The beer = awesome.

Untitled
Ever since living in Alexandria, VA, we've been on a quest to find pizza as good as Pizzeria Paradiso. Up until this point we've had no luck. I'm so excited to say, that Church Brew Works is a good second! We got their five cheese pizza and added lamb sausage. Pretty darn delicious.

Art All Night... Always fun with loads to see and do.

Untitled
Spotted a photo by our friend David McCandless!

Lastly stopped by my painting. LOL. It's always fun to sneak up and see who's looking and listen to their comments...since they have no idea that you're the artist and you're lurking nearby.

If you're an artist of any time (beginner, or professions) I'd definitely recommend submitting to Art All Night next year. It's great and it's FREE!
