Re-Opening Shop

No. Not quite yet. I'm still putting the finishing touches on my stuff...

But, I'm supercalifragilistic-excited-as-a-school-girl about re-opening! I literally have to reconfigure and then upload a few files, and that is it, my friends. I will be back in business!

What, you might ask, will be available in my shop?

Why, hand embroidery patterns, for starters.

Exciting? No?

They're not just any patterns, though! They're based on the incredibly intricate and frivolous floral designs that were popular around the time of the American and French revolutions. Marie Antoinette and Thomas Jefferson, eat your hearts out!

Still not doing it for you?

Okay, some of them also contain adult language.

That got your attention!

Yup. Some of these intricate floral designs (perfect for silk embroidery!) frame popular expletives. For example: Motherfucker, Cunt, and Muff Garbage (okay, that one is a South Park reference...the Jersey Shore episode).

Why cuss words?

My mother hated them. She'd get her panties in such a wad every time one of these beauties passed my lips. I don't know how I often I heard it... "You're so ugly when you say that word!"


I don't think that they're ugly words. I think they are powerful words. Powerful because some people are afraid to say them!

I'm really curious what your favorite power words are. Please, share them in the comments - I'd love to hear them!

Edited to say: My shop is open! Come and get your daily dose of snark! Or, you know, flowers...

Hello, My Name Is...

Hello. My name is Erin, and I am an artist.

Well, I make things.

Lots and lots of different things.

I used to be a chemist, so I'm a bit nerdy, too.

Check out my old blog, and stick around for more fun.
