Feel Good Mountains

Posted on August 10, 2012 and tagged Art & Photography, Personal with comments

I made a new pattern/print today for my Society6 shop! I'm really pleased with how it came out, but can you tell I'm not that great at naming my designs? Feel Good Mountains? I thought they kind of looked like happy mountains with sweaters on, all ready for winter... feeling good! Well, it makes sense to me!

I especially like how it looks in the laptop and iPhone skins.

The Feel Good Mountains would make a great holiday card too! And remember, free shipping worldwide until August 12th... so hurry!!

Did you know that I've been putting some of my work on Society6? You can get art prints, canvas prints, cards, iPhone cases, iPhone skins and laptop skins with my designs printed on them. I've been designing with iPhone cases or skins in mind though.

I would really appreciate it if you would stop by my shop and have a look. And if you really love me you'll set up a Society6 account (so easy) and click the little 'promote' button on a couple of your faves!

Since I think you're so awesome, I'll let you in on a little secret. If you click RIGHT HERE you will get FREE shipping! But remember, you have to visit my shop via that link if you want to be eligible for the discount.

The View from my Phone: Week 31

I have a confession to make. Some of these photos are not actually from this week. I've been a bit of a lady-hermit this week and had to steal some old photos in order to complete this post! Can you tell which ones? But don't lose all faith in me yet; I have couple good posts coming up this week. Look out for a DIY, another Books and Nooks, and a post about my finished painting from the painting class I took.

Books and Nooks

Could this be the start of a new series? Not sure yet. I am the queen of unfinished blog series. I can't even count how many times I've written a post with "part 1" in the title only to never speak of it again.

Here's a little Sara trivia tidbit for ya; I love to read. I always have at least one book on the go. I also read in kind of a strange way. If I'm not 100% engaged and loving the book, I drop it. You know when you're really not into a book but you keep going anyways cause you feel like it would be a waste to not finish it? Not me. I don't think reading should be a chore, so if I'm not in love, I toss it immediately. That might sound a little harsh or wasteful but it makes reading so enjoyable for me.

I recently finished We Need to Talk About Kevin and all I could say after it was over was "wow". It was such an intense book. Eva, who never really wanted to be a mother, ends up raising an evil little monster who grows up to murder 9 people at his high school. The book is written in the form of letters to Eva's estranged husband that she writes after the shooting. It left me pondering the question: Are people born evil or are they made that way by the people around them? Maybe this soothing rocking chair will help you make it through this book.
