Oh hello! Did you miss me? I apologize for the disappearing act, but last week kicked my butt and was quite possibly the worst week in a very long time. In all seriousness… I am trying not to be dramatic, but I am the only designer working in my office currently as we work toward hiring a new person and the work has piled up. I feel like Sarah Sylvia Cynthia Stout with work, not garbage.
Just when I tried to get my act together I went to grab my camera yesterday morning, which I stupidly left in my freezing cold car… no worky! It got so cold the shutter didn’t work and the lens didn’t want to warm up to de-fog! So, a day late and a dollar short, I am back on track with a little pumpkin-y Halloween spirit! Enjoy!
I am sure you are wondering, um… she said she was going to share things from her Germany trip? Yeah well there were octopus there. There was only one and it wasn’t real, but it was super funny how we found him. We hijacked a reserved table at Oktoberfest after our reservation ended. We claimed the table ours and everybody wanted to sit with us, because we only had 4 and the table fit 10! One very nice group of four people, 1 German and 3 Americans from Arizona asked to sit with us. They seemed nice and the one woman was so grateful and happy we would share she offered a gift. Apparently, she imports and resales jewelery and she gave me this crazy Swarovski crystal octopus ring. I have no idea when I might wear it again, but the thing is ridiculously awesome. Which brings us back to this multicolored octopus on today’s card. The octopus is a little wrapped shape as the ring, so I just drew a normal one all sparkly and such. Hope you are enjoying my silly memories and random content right now.
