Quick post about Them Duke Boys

At my Totally 80's Craft party we sat around and talked about toys and what not when we were growing up. I discovered I must of really loved the Dukes of Hazard. I had more than one toy related to the series. So here is my salute to those good ole' Duke boys!!!

More to come about the 80's party later....

3,2,1, 1/2

The countdown begins to the weekend! I'm really excited to have a My Totally 80's Craft party this weekend. Fully and excellently loaded with movies such as, Weird Science, Ferris Buller's Day Off,

Sixteen Candles

The Breakfast Club, Manniquin, and the tv serise Square Pegs too!

Not to over shadow the friendship braclets, shrikie dinks and Makit & Bakit suncatchers that I had to go to ebay to find, cause I'm sure they don't make them any more because the fumes are toxic :)
And if anyone is bored with all that, they can always play Mrs. PacMan.

Its going to be totally 80's to the max!

Artist Trades and Custom Orders for the Holidays

Two things today,,,
In addition to the custom work orders for the holidays, I'm also looking for other artist to make trades with. I have lots of peoples birthdays and plus the holidays coming up.
So if you care to trade hit me up!

Claudia's Burning Ink is now taking custom orders for the Holidays. Just hit me up and let me know what you are looking for and I will let you know that cost and turn around time.

Claudia's Burning Ink requires half of total cost up front on custom orders.

Just check out my pictures of my work, maybe someone you know needs a rockin' box purse. Or maybe that person that has everything needs a rad picture frame. Or for the man in your life, a catchall, so he doesn't leave his cell phone, wallet and other stuff all over the frakin' place! Necklaces are great for everyone.

You can google Claudia's Burning Ink to find photos of my work on myspace and flickr.

All of Claudia's Burning Ink's creations are hand drawn, hand wood burnt, painted and sealed.

Expect the Unexpected

Well I did expect to be bored at work, and low and behold I am. But the unexpected is the possible opprotunity aproaching me. An opprotunity to do something I love and get paid for it. To live a less stressful life and to truely enjoy everyday. More to come later on this super secret event in my life.
On another note. I have two art shows I'm suppose to be in that I don't have anything done to submit. I have one show coming in Nov with a piece that isn't even half done. I still have 3 or 4 more art/craft events this year I'm commited to. All this and I just realized I haven't attended the state fair that ends this weekend. Might have to skip that, especially since I'm having my Totally 80's craft party Saturday. hmmmmmm

A job I'd love

Although I love the art and crafting I get to do in the evenings and weekends. I spend my days under fluorescent lighting. Practically tied to a desk. Always either typing away or pen in one hand phone in the other.
It would be wonderful if I could find a job where I could express myself creatively and leave each day feeling like I did something. Not leaving each day dreading the next. I really want to be a professional crafter. Its always been a dream. Although if everyone grew up to be what they wanted to be, we'd all be veterinarians, firemen, cowboys and girls, and astronauts.

Hello Mr. Blog

Hello Mr. Blog its been a long time. I'm going to give a quick recap here.
First off, I'm loving making Tee-Skirts.
Modeled here by Kate

and here by me.

The Show Pony Show in Dallas, TX was a blast.
The Fall into the Holiday show in Stillwater was a bust!
I'm working on a new line of wall art.
I'm looking forward to the Halloween season and have already been purchasing items for my house and my husbands birthday/halloween party.
I hope to start blogging projects.
Life is good.
