Its been awhile since a post! Things got a little hectic before the craft fair. I'd like to thank all my friends who showed up and bought things from me. The craft fair didn't turn out the way I envisioned. Having friends there for support though helped a ton. It meant the world to me actually.
This post really is involving my newest tattoo. I didn't draw this, I wanted something realistic so several of my friends recommended tattoo artists that have done their tattoos. The one I settled on after hearing tons of good things was Cicely at Cyclops tattoo in the mission district san francisco. She had drawn up the perfect little doe for the piece. I was nervous as I usually before a tattoo. It had been so long since my last that I was pretty freaked out. It didn't hurt as horribly as I imagined it would. It did hurt of course but it was worth it.
I had been thinking about getting a design like this for awhile. Its from one of my favorite scenes in the book/movie. More then being a tribute to Severus Snape(my favorite character played by my favorite actor) it reminds me that people are not always what they seem. I won't spoil what scene it was from in the book because that would be a huge spoiler.
I love the tattoo though.
I'm a huge HP nerd. I'm already contemplating where to get the deathly hallows symbol.

Exciting news is afoot! I will be participating in a craft fair! The first I've ever been in and I hope to do more eventually. I got the necklace pendants above made for the occasion. I am also excited to eventually be offering them for purchase on my etsy site. I will have to get more made. They are pendants of either a bunny or a fox leaping. As far as the craft fair goes here is the website: Hecho Local August Edition
I will be selling the following:
Bunny and Fox Pendants(very limited number!)
Original sketch book pieces
hand painted ceramic pendants(even smaller number!)
I hope that people will come out. It will be great fun and there will be 40 other vendors there.
I'm excited and nervous and hope it turns out well. Still in the process of figuring out how to display my wares without having to lug too much stuff to the event. I found a nice coral fabric at the goodwill and bought a beautiful ikat yard off etsy(thats what is laying under the banner).
Hope to see you guys on sunday!:)
Hope everyone has a great week
