Pinterest and Etsy

Those of you who know me well know my new obsession, Pinterest.  Think of it as electronically categorizing your magazine tear-outs.  It is hard to explain but in a matter of days I have become a fan.  It is a great place to organize ideas (that might have been formerly bookmarks and etc).  I am going to use it to keep track of my ideas....I have a board dedicated for my art inspirations and ideas.  Here is a glimpse:

If I only had more time these days I would fill it up!

Also my friend Julie is having fun these days with art, too.  She has some sketches and is having with with Etsy after a mutual friend bought some similar prints online herself.  So fun!  Vintage Violet Couture

P.S.  9/8/2012 Update: Obsessed with Pinterest more than ever before.  Check out my boards now!

Sailfish painting

Remember this painting?  It found a home.  I am rather obsessed with navy and white so when I spotted this set and pillow at the Pottery Barn outlet (for a steal)...I went for it.  Catherine can tell you, it wasn't without debate.  But I must say, it was worth it! I am tempted to put it in my room downstairs for a change...
Always fun to see paintings in their new home...

I hope to get back to the art room soon.  It's been awhile.  Two words.  Summer school.  Good news is that in two weeks I will be done with summer school and on the home stretch!
