My first (real-ish) art show!

Greetings internets!

Today was my first actual art show! Where I actually got to choose the pieces I wanted to put in! (Unlike the show we did at the Blue Elephant last semester, where those who were choosing the work picked all my pieces that were shit.) I put in three pieces: two drawings and one stoneware piece. All in all, it was a great show, there were lots of really good submissions.

So, I've also decided that the selling on Etsy thing probably will not happen until this summer. This semester is belatedly kicking my ass, and I just don't really have the free time to actually post any of my jewelry or other things. If by some freakish chance I can actually get something productive done, then it will certainly happen. Right now though, I just have way too much on my mind without having one more thing to worry about.

Anywho, that's pretty much all that's on my mind for tonight. Until next time.

So, I created this blog a while ago, but haven't actually posted any updates yet. Hooray for college!

Ok, let me just start by giving myself a brief introduction. My name is Alison (aka Ali, Smiles, Ali Baba, I'm not really particular about what people call me). I'm currently an undergrad student majoring in archaeology, with a double minor in studio art and german. I have two jobs, one as an intern for Health and Human Services (mainly I work there over summer and winter breaks), and I also work as a color guard instructor for the Tuscarora High School marching band. A few things that I do in my spare time: I volunteer with the National Parks Service, take Jujitsu classes, play piano, play video games, spend time with friends and family (so I don't become a complete hermit), and do general artsy things.

This blog will mainly be where I post updates about my art work, mostly that which I am selling, although I will talk some about the stuff I'm keeping as well, because I like talking. My art will be sold in my Etsy store (once I actually have the time to finalize a few things) and I will provide links accordingly.
Occasionally I will ramble about art and just stuff in general, so I appreciate your patience with me! Anyway, I'm not sure how often I'll be updating this, but I will do my best to at least make this a place of Etsy updates.

That's all for now,
