CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS!


I just LOOOOOOOOOVE drawing and painting your animals, and I really get into the details of each little speck of color, or the way the light hits your fur baby’s eyes. To get a great painting and composition requires some photography on your part, and I can give you advice on lighting, angles, etc to complete the right look you desire. 

Because I tailor-make each piece to your needs, please convo through my contact page here and send photos for estimated sizing, pricing, and turnaround, and I will send you more details.

Tidbit: François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture was the best-known leader of the Haitian Revolution. His achievements set the grounds for the Black army’s absolute victory and for a declaration of the sovereign state of Haiti in January 1804. Toussaint’s prominent role in the Haitian success over colonialism and slavery had earned him the admiration of friends and detractors alike.



BITCHCRAFT’s 5th ANNUAL WINTER FAIRE @ KINSHIP STUDIOS in Highland Park

Saturday, Dec 12th was my first time as a vendor at this highly anticipated sale of all things dark and lovely and handmade- just in time to get all those holiday gifts for everyone, (or for yourself if you are bad at planning like me!) If you happened to have missed out- I won’t rub it in too much that it was pretty much the best shopping event of the year, and combined with a friends-from-all-corners reunion made for a helluva party atmosphere. I was lucky to have Tina B from Littlecat Pottery as my super adorable booth partner. I just love her ceramic wares and I have some myself and they have also made great gifts- (ok I guess I’m not ALWAYS that bad at gifting!) Some more good luck that day was that I was actually able to make it to the event even though I was recovering from surgery, so A HUGE THANK YOU to the friends who came to my rescue and hauled all my stuff for me. I’m so glad I didn’t miss out on all the fun and I can’t wait till next year’s event.

Bitchcraft is thoughtfully curated and run by an amazingly talented and supportive team of ladies- Rachel Hsuing-Crystal Habitats, Erica Clum - Goldmine + Earthling Jewelry,  Alex Comacho- Acid Queen Jewelry, photographer Tanya Barr photographer, and Kristina Boudreau- web developer/designer.

Death to the Metro

Fuck the fucking bus.

seriously.

Had I not just speed-walked some of my anger off while on my why to the goldline, I probably would still be too mad to write.
but I’ve calmed down.
trying to breathe, let go.

FUCK IT.

At around 2:00 pm I walk up to a parked bus in front of the metro terminal in CP. The bus is #751, the one I need, but since it is just idle I ask a sloppy fat fuck in a florescent metro vest if this is the right bus to the Goldline. He says yes, but you’ll need to go stand by the sign.

So I walk 30 feet up to the first sign. It says #751 on it, but so does another sign another 50 feet beyond this one. I stand there, debating on which sign to stand under, and figure I’m ok just where I am and to just stop overthinking things.

I stand there, doubting my decision, yet holding strong. The pickup at this stop is supposed to be 2:06, and it’s now 2:10, but bus is still just sitting there. No big deal, I wait a little more and finally hear the engine start up and see the bus moving towards me.

IT FUCKING DRIVES RIGHT PAST ME and stops at the next sign. I wave and curse as I hurry towards it.

IT FUCKING TAKES OFF.

So this is my personal “Fuck You” complaint to the douchebag driver, who managed to answer my question, direct me to a sign, and then proceed to roll right by me. You are a total dick and I hope you have a bad case of jock itch from all that sitting around in your shitty polyester blend dockers or whatever the hell your uniform is made of.

I’m on the Goldline now, really hoping that I still make it to my appointment on time, and I’m trying to regain some sense of composure that the cocksucker stole from me today.

p.s.
I did get to my dentist appointment on time. But it had been canceled and they weret able to notify me in time thanks to my broken cell phone.
Turns out I’ll just have to come back another day….

FUCK.


Time to Get Real

I’m strung out on coffee and really should go start making dinner (which ALWAYS seems to take about 2 hours to prepare and 15 minutes to eat). Regardless, it’s 7:29 pm and in honor of my old site reaching the ripe old age of 10 + years, I’m trying my best at putting up a new site.

Here’s my old one just for kicks- It’s so very sad and lonely :(

SO back to this blog thing- I used to have one way back - I’ll have to find it and link it here. But I never used it so what’s the point? I suppose if I had a lot going on that was interesting I’d write more. For now, I just want to go make some food. Peace out.
