Comic Con prep...

Got started on my primary "special project" for this year's CCI art show-- drafted a pattern for a "Usagi Yojimbo 25th Anniversary" amulet bag... need to get the beads still. Not sure if I want to do the background in black (hard on the eyes to bead...) with a red UY (per the sticker Stan made) or white with black "ink" to make it look more like a "sumi-e"....

Scanned in Stan's sticker... adjusted the colors... uploaded it to "Easy Bead Patterns 2.0" software... corrected/adjusted the "pixels"... all in all, about a 2 hr process.

Condor Con 2009

I set up my table at the Condor Con Art Show this afternoon-- 80 pieces, which is less than usual. After setting up, I realized I had forgotten the bid sheets... and since the idea is to sell some of these pieces, I had the option of going home and fetching the beautifully (?) mail-merged and neatly printed out ones that were sitting in front of my computer, or hastily fill out 80 new sheets.... Didn't need to think toooo long. It would have taken longer to fill them out, than a round trip home, and the thought of paying for parking twice (and for the gas) was barely considered compared to the risk of terminal writer's cramp.
Dear, sweet Glen Wooten, the Art Show director, is very patient with this sort of thing.... And the parking attendant didn't charge me for the quick in & out stop, so he's officially a sweetie, too.

Facebook Fan Page

If you have a Facebook account, you can become a "fan" of my page-- I think that will mean you'll get updates when I add anything to the page. Anyway... I put up a few albums of my beadwork and crochet projects.

I am once again reminded I really need to get pictures taken of a lot more....
