I like peace. You got a problem with that?

I'm just not one of those people who picks a fight for the fun of it.  Sure, I'll mess with people, but only if it's funny; never to start an actual conflict.  I agree to disagree.  I'm a lover, not a fighter.  Live and let live, everyone's entitled to their opinion, let it go - that's me.

Anyway, this whole topic makes me feel defensive, but don't worry.  I'm not a sissy or a doormat.  And it turns out you can accomplish a lot with a raised eyebrow and a "Pardon ME?!"

That's all for now.

Love Shelley!

By Special Request...

No, really.  Someone actually specially requested this!

These are so much fun to make that I practically yelled YES before she even finished asking.  It's on its way to her right now.  I hope she likes it!

More fun coming soon.

Love Shelley!

An Experiment That Only Went SEMI-Horribly-Awry

Okay, it's probably not that bad.  I was looking a little 5 minute tutorial that Pam Carriker did at Stampington Studios the other day and I decided to try what she had done. 

She demonstrated her technique on an ATC but I decided to try it on one of these little 3x3 canvases that my friend Debra sent me from Dick Blick.  WOW do I love them, especially on their tiny little easels!! 

Anyway, mine is not as nice as hers and I found that blending the paint on the canvas was a little tricky but overall I'm still quite pleased with it.  I might actually try this again, only with an original idea this time.  Heh.

Love Shelley!

Please try not to laugh too hard.

My word for 2010.  I know I already have a lot of responsibility but I mean BEING responsible.  Like being caught up with my work so that when opportunity knocks I don't have to stay home and do the laundry I've been procrastinating.  Also being able to sleep at night because everything that has to be done, is actually done.  Like that. 

Yeah, I'm not sure either... but it's worth a try, right?

What's your word?

Love Shelley!

Sneak preview of some outgoing mail

I'm working on a couple of things but nothing to show yet.  In the meantime, here are a couple of envelopes that went out today.

That's all for now, but stay tuned...

Love Shelley!

Next thing you know I'll be tagging train cars.

Hi guys!

Here's some outgoing mail.  I've been admiring graffiti-style writing from afar for a long time now, but this is my first attempt at doing any myself. 

Yeah... um, I really REALLY LOVED MAKING THIS!

Somebody hide the spray paint.

Love Shelley!

PS:  The lettering was done in regular sharpie and white sharpie paint pen.
