A Painting Sale!

I have a little special announcement...

Next week, from the 22nd through the 25th, I'm hosting a big Painting Sale in the store! This is, officially, the very first sale I've ever done on original art....and it's a doozie of one.
20% off *every* original painting--including pieces from my latest "Endangered" series! On some of the larger and more expensive paintings, 20% off is a whopper of a discount. Truly.

Special sales are a bit rare in my neck of the woods, so I hope that everyone who's had a keen eye on a painting for a while will be able to come and check it out. All the prices will be changed early Tuesday morning to reflect the sale, so you won't have to wait for a new invoice or any of that time-wasting mumbo jumbo to snag your treasure.

Alrighty, that ends the "official self promotion broadcast". In other, random news...

A couple years ago, I was wearing a white skirt while doing some window painting at work and, as any smart individual could have predicted, I managed to drip paint on it. Permanent, hot pink, window marker paint. I washed and bleached it to no avail and promptly threw it in the "mend" pile to fix at a later date.
Well, some fabric scraps from my quilt project, tiny colored beads, and steady handstitches were all it took to transform it into a wearable article of clothing once again. Hoorah for crafty cleverness!With the beautiful Spring weather, I'm looking forward to wearing it out and about on my coffee runs.Happy Sunday, everyone!

What a good idea! I have a skirt from anthropologie from a few years ago that has circles with raw edges sewn around the hem. Your skirt reminds me of it!

Thanks, Sarah! It was remarkably easy and quick to do--even for a sewing klutz like myself. :)

probably looks cooler now than it did before. So you see, you were meant to drip window paint on it. :P

Eggman Studios said...

Rachel, good thinking. It was meant to be.
