I Love When Things Aren't Perfect

Wow two posts in a row I must not be feeling well. HAHA j/k I just miss blogging a lot so whenever I get a spare minute now that is what I want to do.


So I have a dilemma that I need some help with and who better than a boat load of talented artists. I have desperately been trying to get great prints of my work so I can sell the on Etsy. I have been trying so many different paper types but the quality I want isn't there. I have a standard HP printer deluxe with fine quality inks it produces a great print but I guess I am unhappy with the paper. Does anyone have any paper suggestion or methods they use in making prints? I really want to stock up my store and I have some great painting I haven't listed yet because I want to make prints first. Oh HUM any suggestions are welcomed. Once I a lock on making the prints I will definitely be doing a giveaway for all the help I hope I receive.


If anyone cares it is snowing in NY today. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH that is right the fluffy white stuff is pooping all over the lovely green grass that has just recently appeared in our tundra of a state. Enough is enough. I love the dreary Seattle weather we have been getting with lots of rain and wind and gray skys but save the snow for somewhere else. Drats!

So last night I did this little painting.



I feel like I have been very into the imperfections in life lately. I am sick of things 'trying' to be perfect as we all well know that nothing is perfect. There is so much beauty in flaws and yet we discount them as being imperfect and thus ugly or bad or what-have-you. I am trying to paint more from emotion these days (and even in Plumes Ami) create from emotion. And I find that even emotions lack true clarity. I want my pieces to have a life and to feel. I want a chord to strike in the on-lookers and find maybe even a hint of their imperfect self in my pieces. Lately I have really been embracing what others might find the doldrums but I find peace and inspiration there. It feels so real to me, different than trying to pretend of keep up with the Jones's, and no it isn't depression. God, no where close, it is life and its imperfections and taking the time to love them, good, bad, or indifferent. With that I say embrace the beauty of imperfection because as far as I can see there is nothing special about being perfect.
I hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Please stop over and visit Plumes Ami if you haven't already. I put up some funky wrist cuffs that I just LOOOVEEEE.

No advice on the prints. But would love to know myself because I have the same printer.

As far as imperfections. I fear I am a perfectionist..But this new hook rugging hobby I have can be difficult at first, because I cannot get it perfect. Therefore I am beginning to be okay with its imperfections.

I wish I could say the same for my imperfections in my relationship...heehee. I struggle with that..lol

Love the new shop. Wish I could afford to purchase something. At least people are donating for my kitties still. Otherwise hubby would not let me do it.

Offend me? Heck no, not unless you speaking directly to me. And you were not. LOL Perfection to me is a good and bad attribute. Like almost everything in our world, today.

Thank you so much for the award Steph! I am sorry I am so late in writing you. It has been busy around here and not in the fun way. Wow, but you have been busy in the fun way! I love all you new goodies. Wish I had good advice on the printing. I would like to do the same, but I am still messing around with paper too. I know that I was not impressed with the services I had tried. I thought the prints you sent me were great. :)
