What I've been working on lately~

I will be recreating this scene from Star Wars for the Stitch Wars show at Bear and Bird gallery. I need to work quickly and ship it out for the July 18th opening. EEEP!

"Not good is procrastination" -Yodalyn.

Also I've been working on Timmie 200's accessory, it is taking me so long to finish! I will post a pic as soon as I am done with it.

In other news, Sal and I discovered popcorn flavored gelato (yumsy!). I don't have a picture because we scarfed it down in 2 seconds. I always thought that gelato and ice cream were the same thing until I heard on television one day that ice cream is made with cream and gelato is made with milk, so it is less fatty. So schnnnnaaarf away. Well, not too much schnaarffing or else you will turn into a plump pudding like me. If you feel like taking a trek to the middle of nowhere Brooklyn you can find this gelato at Villabate bakery on 18th avenue. If you find yourself on Bleecker street in Manhattan you should try the straight-up CORN ice cream at Cones.

That is all the crafting and ice cream/gelato news for today.

Obsessing- Ecobridge Pencils

Recycled paper pencils ~ engorgeousness (engorged with gorgeousness). It reminds me of beautiful Japanese linen like this. I got this picture from this Korean website but I first saw it on Etsy.

mini light tent

I made this last night/ this morning at 4 am in case the sun didn't come out today and I had to take emergency pics of the Timmies.

The test photo:

June '09 update

Here are the 6 Timmies I will be adding to the shop tomorrow at noon. I will also be adding 11 other softies, a carrot messenger bag, 2 pairs of the prototype glasses, 2 pear keychains, 3 Timmie oil paintings, and a couple of Mr. Blackbean journals.

For July's update I will add more accessories, some Timmie jackets, some small Mr. Blackbean softies, and Timmie 200!

If you have a wish list or I've promised you something years ago and then forgot, feel free to comment with your request. So far on the promised list is ~ Crocomonster themed hat or outfit, red hooded jackets, a purple elephant, and a girl version of Timmie (Tammie Tadpole?). I do not take custom orders but I am open to hearing your requests.

If anyone was wondering where on the tadpole development chart Timmie was at.

Shop update next Saturday!

I will be adding about 18 softies to my Etsy shop next Saturday. Hopefully the weather will be nice and sunny this upcoming week so I can get decent pictures of everything. Also I've been working on some Mr. Blackbean stationery that I will post and I will also post 3 small Timmie paintings. Hmm...I think that is everything. Oh... and I have some pear keychains too.

Art Star Craft Bazaar 2009

Here are some photos of my table at the Art Star Craft Bazaar. ASCB took place this past weekend in Philadelphia.

You can click on the pictures if you want to see the notes on each item in Flickr.

Although I didn't sell many things, I had a great time at ASCB. First of all, the location is beautiful - right on the Delaware river waterfront. I felt like I was on vacation the whole time; very relaxing. Just as lovely were all the nice people I came in contact with. I was touched by seeing kids use up their allowance money to purchase a Timmie. It really meant a lot to me. Also, I saw a few cases of friends buying gifts for friends who were standing right with them in my booth, which I thought was really sweet. Annnnnd... I met other Patrizios!!! I have never met another Patrizio randomly. Our families come from the same area in Italy too! If you are reading this ladies, keep in touch!

I also made 2 excellent trades with my neighbors. I have to admit, lately I am a bit of a trade snob. I will only trade for items that I can use on a daily basis or art/craft supplies. I live in a small apartment so I have to be selective. I got some delicious smelling soap (my mouth actually watered when I smelled the cherry amaretto scent) from Bunny Butt Apothecary, and some lovely wool pebbles from Traveling Rhinos, which I plan on turning into super fancy pom-poms for softie hats. Yay!

I will try to add all the items I have left over to my shop soon. I will post an official shop update notice shortly.
