The French make Lindsay Lohan seem less trashy

Morning my dearest most darling ones!!!

So as I sit an d type this I once again am enjoying the solitude before.....MEAN CHEESE WEEKEND!!!!!

yup, she is on her way (well, not really we pick her up tonight, but it seems strangely ominous if I say she's on her way...never mind).

Where the hell did this week go? First it is Monday, and then next thing I know it's Friday, and the entire week has been a blur of paint covered hands and packaging parcels and secretly watching General Hospital.

I need to say how adorable you all are, there were several of you who after reading my last post about the non paying buyers who sent me the most adorable little messages asking if I was referring to them.... of course not!!!!!!

No my non paying buyers I believe are not even real people, just imaginary names and address which have been a plague to many lately.

So yesterday I very briefly got to see my friend Diana, she is an amazingly supportive woman, she is the one that got Keith the "in" at the magazine for a possible monthly comic strip (I am so excited for him I could almost burst), also if I ever have the money I am going to hire her as my agent!!!

She hosted an amazing party for my art back in the fall, and next week we are getting together because she wants to work on framing some pieces for a boutique she has talked to about me...yay.

and.....she brought me the most glorious pile of magazine's last night when she came by to pick up a painting and so Keith could give her little boy guitar lessons....

The best part of the magazine pile was a breathtaking magazine called L'Officiel, which a friend of hers picked up for me a couple weeks ago when he was in Switzerland, he is now roaming the world buying me fashion magazines at every location.

OMG!!!! How cool is that? I took a photo of the cover, please note how pretty Lindsay Lohan looks, not at all like the trashy street whore she looks like right now, also the awesome fashion photo shoots inside are breathtaking, this is why I love everything French (like me..oui).

I think it might be my new favorite magazine of the moment...besides Vogue of course, but hello...that's like my bible, so that's a given.

my shop has been bustling the past several weeks, and because of that I am proud to say (drum roll please) that for the first time in the history of me living in Columbus, that I have paid my electric bill down to zero dollars!!!!

Now that may not be huge to most people, but to me....well it's a moment to celebrate...ok celebration over....time to giddy up and go get some work done and the house tidied up before meany cheesy gets here. I am going to be on the Etsy Showcase on Monday and Tuesday so I really need to get some things done today as well as Sunday Night...

I have 4 amazing little pieces to list today that I am just love, loving!!! One is pictured above and it is called "If All Ladies Leaving Left Like Her" it will be for sale in my etsy shop at about 9:30 am EST. I love it, I used a vintage fashion image taken by Horst. P. Horst that I absolutely adore.

Oh and you should all know that the collage that Gillian is using in her corset project sold yesterday!!

Congrats on the electric bill! I remember the days of only paying a bit on it. I think we all have those. That is awesome though! I've noticed that you've been really rocking and rolling with sales at your store. That is WONDERFUL! I'm geeked up for you. :)

I had to scroll back up to really see that that was Lindsay Lohan. Wow. She does look very chic; I'm impressed. I also love foreign magazines. My beau is supposed to be buying up Aussie Vogues to send me at some point. However, you know men so I'm not altogether sure when they will actually arrive. I'm trying to be patient but... Hello!!?? It's VOGUE!!!

Love all the new work you are doing. I have fun seeing what you will post next.

Have a lovely and delightful Mean Cheese weekend.
