Diamonds

A girl's best friend









I found my inspiration from two different sources. The first: This animated gif from Lightening Fox. I dig the floating diamonds. I decided to make my version 2D and jam packed, where the line between diamonds for some is non existent.



The inspiration for the color!

Zazzle

So, I started a Zazzle store...

It will mostly be my fabric designs on different items. Except for deedoe, which is how Didot should really be spelled. If you know a designer, they'll get it. I came up with deedoe a couple years ago in a typography class. I told my friend about it, how I wanted to make some buttons with the idea, she jumped on it and had them made. We were going to name our company deedoe but I ended up moving to the West Coast instead, sorry Brooke! So I'm reviving my marketable idea. Why not?

About the typeface Didot: Besides being beautiful, when this typeface was first being punched, the foundry hired women to do the work; taught them latin and treated them well. This was during a time in france when women were considered a waste of space. The idea of educating a woman, laughable. For me it's always been more than just a typeface, but a symbol for equality.

Rose



More vintage clip art from The Graphics Fairy. Re-colored.

I feel like judge Judy would dig this.

Beetleguise, beetleguise, beetleguise


August flew by in about a second.
September is technically the beginning of fall, even though it feels like summer just started here!
I thought I'd get with the times and start cranking out some warm and fuzzies.
We'll see how long that lasts...




I need to figure out what to be for Halloween!
I was thinking about being this girl
From the Jaan Pehechaan Ho video



She's cute and not slutty.
That's always the most difficult part of Halloween. I want to dress up and have a good time, but I'm not comfortable looking like a hooker.

I've been Ignatius Riley and Dog the Bounty Hunter in the past, but when I wear funny costumes like that, people think I'm a lesbo (not that there's anything wrong with being gay) .I'm just a girl with a sense of humor
and a brain.

And who will be my pencil mustached man of mystery?
This is when having a boyfriend would be helpful...
