Organize = the word I hate most

I say and have said for years that I'm going to get organized, why is it so hard? 
Well I started, baby steps right? 
I thought this would be big enough to hold all of my stamps, apparently not, but it's better then what it was.
I use to have my cookie cutters scattered about my studio and look at this... 
I have them in one place now... Ooooo 
1 drawer full
I even cleaned all of my brushes properly and realigned the bristles, sometimes (most of the time) I leave them sitting in the brush holder aka used Chinese food soup container with the bristles down which is stupid because they get bent out of shape, especially if you have a long bristled liner brush. I fixed them all today and will make a note to myself to leave the bristles up.

The Elves have done it again!

My favorite Girl Scout cookies are the samoas, of course every year when they go on sale, I go nuts!
Well... I discovered these in the store tonight. 
Holy cow... they are yummy!
Thank you Keebler Elves :o)

And then I found myself surrounded by Ninja's

I was sketching on some plates a few days ago, actually preparing to do "cookies for Santa" plates and then Ninja's popped into my head. I had some input from my brother and my friend Elisabeth and this happened.
Perfect for bad ass dinners don't ya think? Don't worry, no harm will come to you unless you don't eat all of your veggies :o) These guys will be available in my Etsy shop hopefully by the weekend.

Back to work!

A new mug form I'm working on. 
I've had the idea in my head for a while now to make an angel, I came up with this little cutie.

 So it's back in the studio for me. I'm still making cookie monster type mugs for those of you waiting or wanting to be added to the waiting list :o)

A visit back home

The last several weeks have been nothing short of chaotic for me. I've settled down and settled in again which means I'm back to work. Yay! I went back home for a few weeks and met up with some old friends and spent some quality family time. I was able to go and watch my super awesome niece win the champion ship game for girls fast pitch softball! It was a great game, I think the final score was 13-3.   
My niece Taylor getting her trophy! Yay! Taylor!
And of course some silly time with Aunt Denise ;o)

I met up with some old friends at a local hometown bar, their band was playing and seriously... I was blown away, they were absolutely wonderful! I SO Needed this time out. I had a great night and made it in by 4:15am which my dad pointed out to me when he saw me sitting on the porch steps talking to my brother lol
