I’m a nerd

Here is my second animated gif for number 2 on my to-do list. Here’s number one from earlier this year.  This time I made it bigger so you can actually see what’s going on.

Last week I was walking from my car to our house when I saw the brightest yellow finch. It’s been so long since I’ve seen one, I thought it was an escaped pet bird at first. The very next day I was at a BBQ birthday party and saw the boldest Indigo Bunting. It kept flying up to the bird feeder just a few feet away from us. THEN the very next day I was on a bike ride and a bright red Cardinal swooped right in front of me. I view brightly colored birds as a sign, and remembered this mail art piece I made and decided to list it for sale in my Etsy shop.

I recently discovered the coolest (new-to-me) artist through flickr. Alyn Carlson is a very talented artist, graphic designer and actress. She makes the most wonderful art hats, and they can be found in her Etsy shop here. I love how she posts often about colors, often in a Pantone theme, which really speaks to the graphic designer in me too. Well, lo and behold, this week she featured a photograph I took of my tootsie in grass, on this post. And then today, she shared my silver cast and handspun yarn Grass Ring. A woman who also loves grass is a woman after my own heart.

    wow. total synchronicity. FIRST, I love your animation. It makes me laugh. Second, I adore your mail art piece. Third, I just read Alyn’s blog that you mention, although I don’t always read her blog, and I didn’t realize that it was your ring, which was A-dorable. And then finally, I leave a post right after rosa, who has the same last name as me. No relation.

    It must be a sign.

    Love your little dancing Robyn! If you don’t sell that piece before the end of my school year, I’m going to treat myself to it and have you mail it to me as it was meant to be mailed :)
