That One Time I Got Artsy.

November 16, 2012


Erin Schrader

I’ve said it once and I will say it a trillion more times, I am not artsy.
Not one bit.
In fact, I think I mentioned in my “About” page that the only real craft I’ve ever done is when I glued store bought ornaments onto a store bought wreath (and to think that I thought I was so legit after that).
However, this has all changed as of Wednesday.
My martini girls and I saw that Wine and Canvas was going to be in the area and other than the fact that none of us are artists, we couldn’t come up with one excuse as to why we shouldn’t do it.
I mean, wine is in the name…..you can’t go wrong.

my girl was quite the little stomper. feisty. i like it. 
And there you have it.
Six professional artists wine drinkers.
It was a lot of fun.
But so is getting a manicure with your martini club…..
Manicures it is.
You know what else is a lot of fun?
Writing little snippets for some lovely ladies that I think you should all know.
Say for instance, writing something about Kym and that professional hockey player husband of hers.
Anybody who has a professional athlete as a husband is legit. And while that does sound fabulous, Kym is not shy about sharing the truths behind that matter (especially after her third glass of wine).
Kym’s blog is such a breath of fresh air. I love her writing style (written as spoken..), and her ability to tell it just as it is. A good starting place with Kym is on her About page. Hit that sucker up.

Next up is this little glitter fairy, Lauren.

Note to self: Don’t refer to sponsors as glitter fairies. Anyhow, back to Lauren. She is a teacher by day and a jewerly maker by night (lots of goodness packed in that jewerly link). Here is what you need to know about this lady: she loves Dawsons Creek, knows how to have a heck of a summer, oh and she is obsessed with pickles. I know there is a huge crowd of pickle lovers out there who just burst into “AHHH I LOVE PICKLES TOO” chants. Don’t miss out. Go visit Lauren’s goodness now.
And last but not least is the ever so lovely Maria.
Told you she is a pretty little thing. If you don’t believe me, click here and learn how she has recently dropped over 60 pounds. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is. Wait, yes I do. Being best friends with her. That’s the impression I got anyhow. I’m not lieing when I say I just spent way too much time reading through blog post after blog post of hers. Try it yourself, it’s fun (and a great time waster).
Welp I’m outta here kids.
I’ve got a husband who hasn’t seen me for seven days…(not that he is complaining) and a bath with lots of bubbles to tend to. Somebody informed me today that No Shave November is for guys.
Not girls.
Uhhhh. Let’s hope my razor can handle this.
I just remembered I haven’t eaten dinner yet either.
Unless chips and salsa count…in which case, I’ve had a feast.
ps. My Friday evening is going to be spent with Montgomery Gentry, Edens Edge, and Florida Georgia Line. Watch out Twitter and Instagram…it’s about to get crazy up in there.
