The Kennedy's are Like the Kennedy's To Me

hello darling readers

today has been an eventful comic book day here at the shop, I am in the process of training a close friend (Laura) to take the helms here at the Ye Olde Midgard Shoppe.

Yes, you heard the right, Keith and I will be giving up the shop, I will still be here for quite some time during the transition period, but I will finally be able to have more time to devote to my art.

I am astounded, and it is a deal we have been working on for a while and now it is finally coming to fruition.

I was feeling a bit strange about it for a while as I have worked so hard here to make the shop work for me, but there are just not enough hours in the day for me to be able to do everything I need to get done.

In all honesty I am really hoping that this will help lead me out of the depression I am in, as it will give me some of the added time I need to work, and even more importantly work out what is in my head.

Today was a good day here I got to see some of my very favorite of people...Steve, who I always adore, and Ryan and of course Nick and his beautiful girl Evie...

when Nick and Evie we re here we someone got onto the topic of murder (I morbid) more importantly we were talking about people getting away with murder, which made them start to joke about the Kennedy's specifically Ted Kennedy....

to which I burst out with "Don't talk about Uncle Teddy like that"

Uncle Teddy...yes I said it, the strange little nickname I gave Senator Kennedy when I was a little girl, and it stuck.

You see, I LOVE the Kennedy's, perhaps it is s side effect from being raised Catholic and in New England, maybe it is also tied with my Marilyn Monroe obsession, either way. I just love them.

Not in a conspiracy theory, government obsessed kind of way, but more just in a love of all things fashiony and stylish...I mean seriously...who doesn't love Jackie O...right? This was the argument I was giving when...

Evie burst out in mocking tones of me with "The Kennedy's are like the Kennedy's to me"...she was saying this much in the same vain that I usually say that Brad and Angelina are like Royalty to me...

oh, I am sure this is only making sense to me, but sometimes that is all it has to make sense too.

I am feeling very good right now, as I feel like I have taken one step closer to more artistic freedom and time...

I did not do too much with Etsy today, I did get a chance to list a new paining, which would be a hot little companion to a painting I posted several days ago...

This painting is called "Volcano II"'s all sorts of makes me feel good, even on the days that I am not feeling sexy at all.

the painting is 8x10 and it is available for sale in my etsy shop.

I have also been working and working on the pendants which I love, so check out my pendant section in my shop, it grows a little more every day.

until next time loves.

Your vibe is so fun and free! I think freedom is key to all happiness. Freedom in everything. Even choosing to have two desserts. :) I totally get what you are saying...I enjoy you. Thanks.

Hey Jenn - I love your new painting, VERY sexy and I love the way you tie in the title with the composition you have chosen. Thank you so much for your comment yesterday on my blog - I am afraid I haven't yet worked out how to reply to comments (I am sure it must be so simple!) bit it really brought tears to my eyes (I am such a sap!!). But your thoughts really mean a great deal to me. I too have a love of the Kennedy's and Monroe, the romance and style of the era and thought your Uncle Ted comment hilarious.
I truly wish you the best of luck with your new ventures, It is an exciting time for you! Grab it with both hands......

thanks for reading my blog! I enjoy you too...

I am glad my nonsense is seen as freedom, in my head that is how it feels, other times it feels like just nonsense, lol.

gillian- I love reading your blog, in fact just last night I was playing my Cash album and I mentioned you to my bf, I feel as though we were separated at birth sometimes.

I am so in love with this piece, Jenn. It's kind of naughty.

Good for you that you're making more time for your art!

How did I miss this post Wednesday?! Am I to understand that you guys are selling the comic store? Wow. The thought that you will have more time to devote to your art is pretty exciting; you'll have to give me all the details via email.

Oh, and: Our mutual love of the Kennedys is just one of the many things that makes our friendship click so. Bobby Kennedy? Total hero of mine. Going to the Kennedy Library in Boston was one of the best dates I've ever been on.

Aaron- yes we are giving up the shop, not so much selling it as we are taking everything in it so we can do shows...but we are handing over the shop, it will be a long transition as to not throw too much change at anybody all at once.
