Starstruck

You remember back before MySpace was the aging starlet it is today, before it was just one step away from being featured on To Catch a Predator?  They had those little cartoon emoticons so you could show everyone your mood.  They were always extremely lacking, like how can a little animated face describe the way I feel after working 40hrs and getting in a fight with my mom? The answer is it can't. I'm way too complex for your emoticons MySpace.

Anywhoo today I received a reply from my favorite new illustrator Sandra Suy and I wish I could post a big smiley emoticon everywhere!  I emailed her about a month ago to request a certain print and to ask permission to use her image on my blog. After the first week I was sad at the silence, but not surprised.  I mean this woman is great and my requests were basically pittance. Um, please pretty lady, may I use your fancy image on my little blogey-thing?

Well my frown has been turned upside down by her response today. She was so nice. She said the illustration I had seen elsewhere but not at her Etsy store for sale could be printed for me.  She also gave me permission to use the image on my blog, which you now see above. Woohoo! So again everyone head over to Etsy and buy her stuff. She is great. Maybe there's hope for Tuesdays after all.

Your blog is getting so shiny!! =) I did ask you about tips on things to do in Santa Barbara. Maybe you don't read comment people left? Anything we should be doing? Would you like to meet up for lunch or coffee on Saturday? It would be nice to see you and your bf again.
