I haz a sad

Sigh... I am feeling bummed...

I had been eagerly anticipating the arrival of two Isabey watercolor brushes from Jamie's Jems on eBay. (http://myworld.ebay.com/jamiesjems404)

They never arrived. Tracking information ended with a date of 01-04 arriving in the sorting center of Dallas. Sigh...

eBay's Customer Care Center refunded my money, but.... I was so looking forward to those new brushes. I love the Isabey that I've had for several years. (The only darned thing about it is that the handle is soo long I'm tempted to cut off about an inch.) I was really looking forward to playing with them.

And I'm still looking at another brush in Jamie'sJems' store. But I don't know if I should order it seeing as how I never got the others.

And the seller takes a while to respond to any emails....

Bodyshells by Heidi Bucher

It's like humans gone hermit crabs. Very nice. (I'd love one of these for a Halloween costume.)

East Lake Pet Orphanage is looking for artists

who can create eye catching outdoor displays for their thrift shop, "Second Chance Treasures."

Clipped from the East Lake Pet Orphanage newsletter....

"Anyone driving past Second Chance Treasures during the holidays probably noticed the vibrant orange Christmas trees on top of the shop. What an eye-catching display! Are you a local artist that is looking for a unique way to bring attention to your creativity? We'd love to partner with you! We are looking for local artists that can create seasonal displays to place on top of Second Chance Treasures to help draw attention to our organization. If you are the artist whose work is currently on display, we will have information in the store to let shop visitors know more about you and where they can see more of your work! If interested, please call Second Chance Treasures at 214-660-9696 and leave your contact information."

Just posting this in case anyone wants to try an outdoor installation. This sounds like a great opportunity for some new artists. You get to show off your work and people get to find out about your work when they enter the shop. (Though ELPO probably can't pay you anything, but hey, just think of it as advertising!)
