oh my gosh!

i updated my little shop today and everything already sold out! whoaaaaa!!!
tomorrow there will be more, though. and of course, friday–the most!
here was my favorite painting from today.

this is serious.


this is not serious.



you'll be happy to know that my boyfriend is not actually homeless. he just looks homeless.
seriously, though. we did a photo shoot together yesterday and got a crush on him all over again while i was editing these photos….



last night i had a much needed late night crafty session with my oldest friend…. LOVE YOU!


and a shot from a thrift store dressing room…. 


so today i have a few things to do for my new website, some things to photograph, some coffee to drink (oh… and whoever invented hot chocolate with 35 calories is a genius and i owe youuuuu!!!), a little bit more thrift shopping to do (i am decorating the cutest–and also most functional little shelf for all of my makeup and accessories in my bedroom–pics soon!), some printer ink to buy and dinner with my parents…. whew! and that's all before my "night owl" shift of painting begins. OH—and i really want to put up my Christmas tree! Basically, life is awesome. The end. πŸ˜€

Ok… I am off to conquer my list and get a latte! 

something like this—–>
haha. πŸ™‚ have a good day!!!

  • Aw, poor Britney! Don’t you hate it when you absent-mindedly go for your straw and it’s not where you thought it would be?

    Glad your life is so sunshiny right now! When you share it, it rubs off a little on all of us! (:

  • And when you drink your latte you’re going to stare off into the mid-distance and grope for the straw with your overly lipsticked mouth, right? πŸ˜€

  • Oh my gosh, Elsie!!! I NEED that painting! πŸ™‚ I think it’s my favorite of yours everrrrr!!

    Haha, Jeremy is such a good sport πŸ™‚ I just played his CD at the bank! πŸ™‚

  • That bottom photo on the bottom is hillarious.

    Congrats on such good sales in your etsy. I’m going to go on over and take a look at what I missed.

    Have fun tonight!

  • you’re are such a great photographer miss elsie!!

  • srsly… as horrible as this sounds… the new britney cd… not that bad. i mean it’s no jermey but it’s suprising hahahahaa… i think i just like womanizer b/c of the gossip girl commerical and the chuckster hahaha.

    and srsly again… i want a shirt… it’s so adorable! and as are you! tee hee

  • Are you going to include new craft kits (e.g the Neverland, Alice in wonderland, autumn, halloween) in your new etsy updates this whole week? πŸ˜€

    It would be great as I would certainly be getting more!

  • I don’t know if you have answered this question yet, but Where did you get your cute camera strap?? I think it is so cute!!! I love all you art!!

  • Your painting/print is already out??? grrrrrrr, I’m always too late for that kind of things and always because of time which is different here in Europe than in USA,grrr. I won’t miss your classes next time – I’m sure!



  • People….Britney is PREGNANT in this picture. I’m sure if pappers went around taking random, candid shots of us we would look pretty silly too. Cut the girl some slack.

  • I need that painting too!!! Did it sell already?? Are you going to offer it as a print?? I just love it!

  • Love the painting and photos. Posting that Britney photo is oh so naughty of you but you made me smile knowing you felt comfortable showing that side. It’s another lovely layer.

  • I LOOOOOOVVVVEEEE that painting!!!!! So it’s sold already? πŸ™

    Nice pics you’ve made from your sweet boyfriend!

    have a nice day Elsie!!!

    Luv from Holland!

    Love the painting! leaving for college in January!! I want one of your paintings for my dorm! but ill have to put up an album of all my stuff so you can see what its going to look like! then i want you to pic one out for me.

  • I fall in love with my husband all over again all the time. We have been together for six years now and I love that I totally can still have a crush on him. Glad to see I am not the only one out there enjoying something so great.

  • I just need to say that Your boyfriend looks like ryan gosling in the Notebook- when he lets his hair and beard grow. oh man, so cute! xx

  • You look so hot in my t-shirt, I must say! I am quite flattered that it’s your favorite.

    If you’d ever be willing to take a front-on shot of you in it, I’d love to put it up on the shop. You’re a fabulous model.
