It's 8:04 am




It's 8:04am and I already feel as though I need ice cream, or alcohol....too early I know...

So far today I have dealt with a tiny sick puppy, yes he's sick again, you see he cannot eat anything foreign without getting VERY sick, so grass, a little dirt, a small piece of paper...all send him into a tail spin. This is not good when you have a lovely little puppy who has horrible OCD and must lick everything, even outside, hence the dirt and small rocks he eats when we go on our little walks.

it's breaking my heart, to see him feeling bad, his little puppy face.

I'm a mess.

So that's that...that has been my morning so far, not fun, not fun at all.

Anyway, I have some (what I think) is exciting news for my etsy shop...I have decided to do a new series, very much inspired by my friend Cat, you may know her as Artsy on etsy...well she has a series of "1000 pieces" all numbered, I think that is genius. I have been pondering doing something similar, you know as a challenge to myself. SO I thought about doing 1000 aceos, but wow....that seems like a lot, and I make aceos anyway, so it's not really different.

then I decided.

I have been working on the "new pieces" for sometime, the ones that are a mixture of digital and traditional collage, I showed one yesterday...and that is when it hit me. That is the plan....I am going to do 500 of them, all different all one of a kind, each will be printed just one time. They will all be 10x10 inches.

Because they will be printed once, they will be one of a kinds and original. Because they will be printed on archival and thick cardstock, it will give you a chance to own an original piece as a slightly lower rate than one of my traditional collages.

Exciting, huh?

Now, this does not mean that I will not be doing my traditional pieces anymore, this is just something new, something exciting. Once the series is done, it's done...there will be no more made in this size and style....I may move onto another size, I may not...you never know.

So with that decided, I just had to come up with a number...do I make 1000...? No, that seems like too many, I have slight ADD, and getting to 1000, well I am afraid I will grow bored halfway through...so, instead of 1000, I will do 500.

Now, they won't be happening all at once, I am a girl after all, not a factory...but expect to see them in my shop starting on Friday, I will list the first one(s).

SO there you have it...and the images today are a few more of my new 500 pieces series.

(yay!!)

Those are fantastic pieces, and I think the 500 one-of-a-kind idea is brilliant!

Also: Hope the puppy feels better soon!

Poor puppy! I hope he feels better soon and learns to be more selective in what he licks.

If karen beth wants it, can I outbid her??? I will resort to fisticuffs for it... not that I'm calling anyone out but I will battle for it.

That sounds like a great plan!

Sorry to hear about the dog. It's hard enough to get people to stop eating things that are bad for them, I can't even imagine how a dog would stop.

Wow they are incredible (as are you of course!). Gosh maybe I should take on the challenge too - I need to get out of this art funk I seem to be in at the moment. Sorry to hear about Scribble - I really hope he gets better soon, it must be quite worrying.

psssst actually digital collages are original (just not one of a kind) no matter how many times you print them out on the computer.

And this is coming from a traditional printmaker!

original and one of a kind are not the same. You don't have to be one of a kind to be original in the artworld it just can't be a reproduction from another medium.

Yeah, I know it is confusing.

Sorry to hear about pups. A friend of mine has an OCD cat that licks his fur so much he has bald patches!
