I’m downsizing my studio space for an impending move (more on that later). The results? Really good deals on some crafty items! Copics, Stamps and more! Hope you check it out, and better yet share with friends, Thank you
Almost 12 years ago I purchased shurkus.com as a grad gift to myself… I’ve actively used it for my email address, but thats about it. Life happened, there never seemed time to build my own page- and even though i have been blogging since 2005, it was just easier to use typepad.com. Well folks… that is all changing! With my new position at Providence College.. one of my “tasks” is to learn wordpress, which in return has helped bring shurkus.com alive! I am SO excited to finally be using my little space on the net. Excited to have gotten the site this far, but I can promise you… more is to come! So… hold on, sit back… and enjoy, shurkus.com (would love to hear what you think :) )
I have updated my class page- you can see it in the tab above. I have some fun card classes coming up, and hop to see some of my “peeps” soon!!
I have spent the last few long weekends getting a lot done in my studio space. I love working in there, it’s just finding the motivation and time to get in there. I am also happy to announce I finally have opened my etsy shop! I have quite a few completed canvases posted, and some waiting for your unique quote. I also take custom orders – you get to choose the size, colors, and quote… just contact me. I hope you will spread the word on my fun new shop :)
More creative posts coming soon, I have a TON to share… i’m so excited!!!
Note: be sure to update your bookmarks, and blog readers, this is where my blog is going to live from now on!!
i created a art canvas to raffle off at crop on the cape… i took pics along the way of creation with my iphone, but forgot to take a "pretty" final pic of it…. but you get the idea ;)
and this last picture was taken *very* *very* late at night… i forgot to spell out "imperfections" and just did "perfections" i fixed it the next day ;)
the quote reads:
"being happy doesnt mean that everything is perfect, it means that youve decided to look beyond the imprefections"
mister harley is a big part of my life.. crazy cat lady or not, he makes me happy. i love how he wants to be part of everything i do on the island… i thought i would share a few pics to prove it :)
there are days he oozes out of the box… but i work around it to have that cute face there!
then there is the typical days… where he takes over my crafty space… if i havent given him enough attention… or have just been focused on my stuff… OR if i happen to clean up my space a bit.. he reminds me he is there… or thanks me for clearing a space for him (see below)
i wouldn’t have it any other way ;) sharing my island with him and i wouldn’t share sooo many pics of him if i didnt know how much you guys (my blog readers) enjoy him as well!
this pic was taken in july 07… it is MUCH fuller now… if you can believe that!
i went through my a muse stamps and pulled some that i just can't part with… but i know if i'm not teaching with a product… it doesnt get used. so i have to clear these babies out… i will miss them, kinda bittersweet….
i have posted all of the ones i have for sale in an album here
sorry for the poor lighting in some of them.. i lost daylight… taking pics of 600+ stamps takes a looong time
when you email me (email@example.com) to place your order PLEASE copy/past the exact file name i have for the stamp you want… it will help me keep track of orders easily, without having to figure out which stamp you mean
i will email you a paypal invoice which will also include the shipping
thank you so much! these are 1st come 1st serve
