Yesterday



oh, yesterday did not turn out as planned...not one bit.

actually strike that, the day started off ok, woke up, blogged my favorite blog of the week, I love celebrity letter day...I just do.

I personally think it's hilarious and I love reading all of your letters too, thanks to everyone who reads and snarks with me...after all it is a joke, right?

you do get that it's a joke? I am not intentionally "judging" people, or maybe I am, either way it's still funny to me.

moving on.......

yesterday was a total cluster...we got an early moring call on our cell phone that the new owners of the comic shop were both sick....it is really a fluke that I even received this message as I never have the sell phone on and it is only used in emergencies. Considering I am a shut in....I can be reached at home 90% of the time.

SO anyway I get the call and then it's off to the races, usually my bubs helps them in the morning before going back to work, as Wednesdays are the busy day when all the new comics come in...but yesterday it was the two of us at the comic shop again, kickin it old school.

Luckily we were able to do this, as there would have been a lot of VERY unhappy people not getting their comics.

It was fun, sort of, well it was fun to see the customers who were just over the moon with excitement that we were both there, so that was nice...though working close to 10 hours for no money....not so nice.

I did get to read all the comics off the shelf and eat pizza in the shop, so that sort of made up for it.

Though I did lose a day of artsy type work, which sort of gets me tense. You see I am trying to get a selection of work together because the awesome Carla has asked me to have a month long show at her bookstore/coffee shop, Scribbles.

The showing opens June 1st at their gallery hop and lasts all month.

I have never been there so my bubs and I are going to try and switch the mean cheese weekends so we can go down for the opening, it will be my first Solo Show, so wow....that makes me seem all sorts of grown up, doesn't it?

so that is what I have been doing to keep myself busy, making lots of paintings for my etsy shop/show...as whatever does not sell on etsy before the last week of this month, will be shipped away for the show.

ok, now one more shamelessly promoting thing (I hate to sound so "me, me, me") my super cool friend Cat, or as some of you know her...artsy has nominated me for the Best Shopping Blog on the Bloggers Choice awards...

so, if you have a minute and care to place some votes...that would be very awesome.

the pictures I am showing today are a few newer things, I have an art card set, that I just loved doing...the colors are a lot more delicate in person...I know the screen is not doing them justice, also showing is a large 12x16 inch collage called Stranger, Stranger, Take Away Your Riddle

thank you all for reading the jibber jabber of today, must get to reading some blogs and then to work, work, work...

xoxoxo

after further investigation, I see that the show is not in Columbus. I thought it was a new shop I hadn't heard of here. My mistake, Best of luck

Congrats on your upcoming solo show! I just checked out the scribbles site it looks like the perfect place for you to exhibit.

Yes, I have more Nippons, several more. Aren't they so beautiful, dare I say almost even better than Russian Vogue? Plus I love reading backwards, it makes me feel so foreign. My BF is whisking me away to Portland, Maine this weekend (my first time, can't wait, we are going to a local fashion show!!) So I will list them next week.

Congradulations on your upcoming show girly! Wish I could go!!!
About the letter I wrote. Don't you feel as if you need to explain anything. I don't know if it's a joke or not. I just choose to only participate by writing artist's that I wish to compliment. You should do whatever makes you happy girly! :)
You are a GREAT artist though. I in NO way was or am offended. Anyone who would be, shouldn't come to your blog over and over again. I come because your truely inspiring and fun.
Just wanted to say that... I hope that my being honest didn't bother you or anything.
*HUGS*

Hey dear one,

Wow! Sounds like you did have a whirlwind day yesterday. 'Kickin it old school' made me laugh... :)

Yes, of course the celeb letter day is a joke! Most of us realize that... I think it is hilarious! I almost always write "judge-y" letters to celebs because, quite frankly, they put themselves out there and do so many stupid things... how can I help it? Oh well... fun stuff anyway. :)

The upcoming show sounds exciting. You will rock the house, no doubt.

Have a good one!

xo,

Karen Beth :)

I can't read your blog on myspace today because myspace is being dumb. Why is technology failing me so much lately?

I am so excited to hear about your first solo show! That's wonderful, Jenn. I'm so happy for you. I wish I could go there and see it :-)

Better-late-than-never congrats on your show! I just let out a Homer Simpson-esque "Woo-hoo!"; I think the neighbors heard me through the open window.
