I Would Like To Thank The Academy

I Would Like To Thank The Academy....seriously, that is how I feel right now, because you see, it is a little before 8:00 on May 31st, I woke up about 30 minutes ago and turned on my computer and noticed that sometime in the night...I hit the 1000 sale mark in my shop.

That, my dear darling readers is something that I thought would never be possible when I signed up a little over a year ago, in fact selling my art there was an after thought, as I signed up simply to sell my comic.

And now, this is my life, my job. I am constantly being blown away by that.

So lately I have become totally and completely obsessed with a bunch of things, one being the color combination of blue and golds together, as you can see from the piece above. I never really used the colors together as I always thought they would remind me of my Junior High colors, but in fact they don't....now I am stifling the urge to make everything look like this.

I am also completely absorbed in Japanese Vogue (thanks Jody) I have told my dear bubs that it is really impossible for me to go back to American Vogue now, with the movie stars on the cover and lame people magazine style articles about said starlets....

I am also totally and completely into masks....or really anything that partially covers the face at all...I just can't get enough of them. In fact I bought some wonderful things from my friend Gillian that are mask related too...

sorry this is making little sense, I was up for most of the night as my poor bubs is very sick and I was sort of up listening and worrying for him. He works himself so hard you see, and it just makes me hurt all over knowing he feels bad....well that and knowing it was me that got him sick, but if we trace it back it was the mean cheese that got me sick, so there...my guilt is gone.

I have loads of packaging to do today and I should start soon, it will be 90 degrees today like yesterday and once it gets to be about noon I can hardly move without almost passing out. I also need to get some creating done as tomorrow will be a messed up day as my bubs and I are going to take a road trip down to see my show at Scribbles.

hope you all have a good day.

xoxoxo

Congratulations, Jenny from the Block!!! I am so happy for you, I can barely express it in words -- not just for the 1,000th sale, but for everything in this past year. You deserve all of it and so, so much more.

Also, I'm loving the blue and gold, too. It's quite nice.

Also, I hope your man feels better soon.

Also, miss you.

Also, xoxo.

That's awesome. A real milestone. I love reading success stories like this. Which also led me to start my own internet endeavours and I started http://www.mizztissa.com about 4 weeks ago. It still has some work and I have much to learn, but it's a work in progress.

I hope the next 1000 are even easier. BTW, when you mentioned blue and gold I didn't think of high school. I thought of a Faberge egg. Weird huh?
