since the last time, i've been sick, made two illustrations, went to a tea party, designed 3 rubber stamps, described all etsy goodies, ran out of coffee creamer, and cared for diego while he stayed home from school.... although being sick took over 10 days of that time, i tried to spend my relaxing time, chipping away at my artwork so that this greenbean didn't feel lazy... it feels good to be productive... but i'm trying to take it one day at a time to not overwhelm myself, ya know?!
so the etsy goodies will be available soon however there isn't a specific date just yet... thanks to two buddies, they have helped me to relaunch the shop filling it with inventory that has been sitting around the studio.... there will be giant embellishements in the shop- what are giant embellishments you ask? they are the cut paper dolls cut out but NOT glued down onto a background... i'm leaving it for the buyer to add the background :) there will also be magnets, illustrations, smaller embellishments, notecards, and a few wall hangings... there's roughly 60 items!!!!
as with previous etsy shop openings, most of the characters are named after people i know... some names are taken from the shows that i've been watching- dean, mr. brown, hilda, pierce.... can you figure out which shows i've been enjoying?! and many of the characters that are named after friends, the descriptions are ficticious... it was a wonderful twist to making etsy descriptions a bit less monotonous....
lastly, here is a picture of isabella, the princess... she is an utter girly girl! the other day she told ramel that she wanted to be a superhero... spidergirl, in fact... so you can imagine the goodness i'm cooking up for her 4th birthday!!! but aside from her superhero love, she ADORES wearing a frou frou dress! i saw this dress at target MONTHS ago and wanted to get it for her... but i waited... then last weekend, she BEGGED for it!!!! we even got her some gold sparkly shoes to match and she was so happy... she's a vocal girl- she's quick to say what she doesn't like but she's also quick to say how much she loves me- she melts my heart! she's asked to change her name to ellia so she can be just like me- EEK!!!
so just a quick recap of the greenbean family: diego wants to change his name to peter parker when he gets older... and he wants me to change my name to aunt mae....and he wants me to live with him so i can keep the house clean... isabella wants to change her name to ellia... she wants to be JUST like me including height and shoe size... i got quite the pair of kids, eh?!
