so, like a crazy person…I’ve decided to participate in vlogmas this year.
if you’re unfamiliar with vlogmas, it’s basically an annual youtube thing where you create a vlog everyday for the month of december leading up to christmas. I’m jumping on the bandwagon simply because it seemed like an interesting challenge. I have always been fascinated with youtubers who vlog every single day. how do they do it?! well…I’m about to find out.
day one of vlogmas is up on my youtube channel. hop on over here to watch, and be sure to subscribe to my channel to never miss a video!
a few weeks ago I decided to order a little mini print of one of my journal illustrations. when it arrived in my mailbox and I opened it up, I fell in love with it so much I decided to order more…and put them up in my etsy shop!
these little guys are so multifunctional: use as gift tags, trading cards, cut ’em up and use them in your own mixed media work, or simply frame as a mini piece of art…
hop on over here to snag a set!
I come bearing some very excellent news for you all…I’m having a totally-super-awesome-epic etsy sale! for the first (and probably only) time ever, ALL OF MY ONLINE CLASSES WILL BE 20% off. same goes for postcard sets! my etsy sale starts thanksgiving morning and will continue through the end of sunday…
I also want to share some other fun stuff that will be on sale this weekend should be you looking for more ‘by bun’ merch:
+ society6: from 11/24 – 11/28 they’ve got free shipping & 20% off everything! I also recently updated my shop with some new artwork options. so grab yourself a carry-all pouch or a notebook (this is a brand new item!) from my shop.
+ stencilgirl: oh yeah they’re having an epic sale too, including 25% off all stencils! that sale kicks off on cyber monday (11/28) using the checkout code ‘cyber25’.
lastly, and most important: a little ‘thanks’ in advance for all of your support this holiday season. it’s people like you who shop small, shop directly from artists, or buy from companies that give money back to artists/designers that really help us out. I honestly would not be able to continue doing and sharing what I love without you…so thank-you!
I realized it’s been ages since I did a ‘friday finds’ post, and it just so happens that I have a pretty interesting round up of links!
this weekend is looking to be pretty chill – a little bit of art, a little bit of hanging out. I’ve come to really savor weekends like these where I’m not teaching or running around like a mad woman. sure I’ll have a few business items to do (*cough cough…like preparing for a black friday weekend sale in my etsy shop…cough cough*), but I’m hoping to really just focus on creating.
let’s check out this batch of finds eh?
…the deadliest garden in the world!
the ultimate guide to confetti…you know, in case you were wondering.
kid curator: how to look at public art (this is old, but so adorable)
I know it’s the season for soups & crockpots, but just look at these cauliflower tacos!
obsessed with victoria semykina’s illustrations and work
how gorgeous is this floral luggage set? swoon!
have a wonderful weekend everyone!
+ side note – this is one of my early spreads that inspired my ‘lunar’ art journal workshop. I’m teaching this very class next month at the palos verdes art center on dec 2nd and again in the new year (where we’ll be setting some intentions for 2017!) at the art lounge on 101 on jan 8th…
it’s crazy to think that I’ve only got one more playlist after this and we’ll be closing out 2016…
this month’s playlist is definitely on the mellow side. I think a big part of it is the time of year. once halloween passes, I’m usually a bit bummed and just want to plow through the holidays. needless to say – you won’t be getting any christmas music from me next month.
I want to point out two bands I’ve discovered and that are on this list: genders and springtime carnivore. they both happened to be opening bands for other shows I attended recently, and I fell in love with them almost immediately. so much so, I’ve hunted down springtime carnivore and am attending a free show they’re doing tonight in hollywood. I highly recommend checking out both of these bands on spotify…you know…if you want to go down that rabbit hole…
+ need more tunes? each month I curate a creative playlist on spotify! check out the last two from october and september.
a new video as part of my ‘messages’ short film and creative journal series is now up on my youtube channel…
while I’m here, I also want to thank-you all for the comments and feedback on the first video of the series. as you know, I’m experimenting with something new – that is both scary and challenging for me creatively. your support truly means a lot, so thank-you…xo
+ in case you missed the last video or are new to the project, you can learn more about it here.
happy friday! I’ve got a little shop update for you…
hop on over to my etsy shop to snag one of these limited edition sticker sets! I took four of some of my favorite journal spreads and turned them into stickers. this is a very limited run, so get em while you can. I have also added some of the by bun stencils (made by stencilgirl) in case you haven’t picked any up yet…
have a wonderful weekend, and if you’re attending my workshop at the art lounge on 101 this weekend – I’ll be creating with you soon! and psst: there’s still room if you want to join us…xo
