Goodies from this weekend


I did something to my left artm/shoulder/hand, so I'm limiting my typing and what not on the 'puter. Here are the goodies I bought from Frenzy Stamper this weekend. How cool is this stuff? Coffee Break Design stencils (lots more then in the photo!), 6x6 Basic Grey paper pads, stamps, stuff, cool beans!!!

I got this Art of Travel Sketchbook at Frenzy...Not from Frenzy- up Juxtapoz for the trip. I ordered the Catalina Estrada book from Spain-it shipped fast and free and I Love it!
OK, off to get ready to celebrate my first day of being 33. Hopefully my arm will get better and it will be a good day :)

Textbook disclaimer stickers here. The first one is an actual sticker found inside of a textbook.

LOL, my Dad called me yesterday saying that he had found my blog (by google) and that he was trying to figure out if I was becoming a "communist". Was I quoting Lennon or Lenin? So, for the hell of it, I'm going to quote LENNON again:

"If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or my music, then in that respect you can call me that. I believe in what I do, and I'll say it." John Lennon

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all." Lennon

"You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!" Lennon

Now some LENIN quotes:

"Can a nation be free if it oppresses other nations? It cannot.
" Vladimir Lenin

"Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in ancient Greek republics: Freedom for slave owners." Lenin

Dad says that my Mom better not find my blog. Yup. I'm 33 today.

My blog. I'll quote who I want, when I want!

"I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration." Frida Kahlo

I had a friend who said that what makes an artist an artist is that they have a need to create their own world; one in which no one can tell them how things will be. Yay you, you are a GREAT ARTIST!

And Happy Happy Birthday. You rock.
