this has been an interesting week, and it's only half over.
Monday was really a dream come true. My new FAVORITE band, for whatever reason, came to town. I always preface with, "for whatever reason," as Rexburg is not near anything, and therefore very out of the way. The band is called Canoe, and they are from Portland Oregon. I first heard of them a couple of months ago, through a friend, and had been listening to the same five songs over and over again, because I loved them so much, and it's all I had. I even put them on mix cds for the print lab. Well, needless to say they put on an amazing show. I love when a band sounds just as good if not better than their recording.
Also, a band that is a part of their label played. Johan the Angel. They were incredible! Please go listen! You can listen to the music, and buy it from their website or through Amazon MP3, once you know just how much you love them too.
Tuesday: a play, sorbet, and super smash brothers
Wednesday: we are getting ready for a print show they are doing in Idaho Falls, and we all (printing peeps) have work in the show, and getting all the images together, framed, matted... it's all little stressful on top of everything else, but it's a great opportunity. So, for various reasons it was a rough day. BUT I just can't even imagine how, but everyday like this I come home to some kind of present! Somehow, someone knows that I needed something. It's a miracle!
I designed a wedding announcement for some dear friends of mine, and I did it because I love them, but they got me a present. On Monday at the show, I told my friend Preston how beautiful I thought these bells that Johan the Angel were playing, and he said that he knew all about them.
I came home tonight to a set of these, and a sweet note from someone. How does someone always know?
Here are some pics of a new watercolor, my favorite Belgian necklace and my bells. All primary (and secondary...) colors
and as if I hadn't already blown your mind....
my first line of fabric will be available at the end of the year through Andover Fabrics. Pretty cool huh?
