Throwback Thursday: My Name

To be honest, I'm running out of pictures of my childhood artwork. I should ask my mom if she's got anything she can scan for me...

But I do have this little beaut:

I won't lie. I worked pretty hard on it. This round thing (I forget what it's supposed to be called) actually contains one of each of the letters in my full name. Pretty neat, huh? First I drew (or traced, I'm not going to specify) a big circle, then I folded it in fourths and made my design on one of the fourths, using a different font for each letter. I then magically duplicated the design on each of the other fourths (with the power of tracing). Finally, the fun part: coloring. 

If you're wondering what the orange diagonal lines are, they're not chevron. They're the letter N in a weird font. And the little red things are Rs. And the football uprights are actually Ys. And the weird purple things are lowercase Is.

Next time you're bored, make a circle-thing with all the letters in your name. Then send me a picture. And if you want, I'll even post it on here so everyone can see your artwork =)


Wait a second! I almost forgot something.
My etsy shop's four month birthday is coming up in less than a week, so I decided to create a little coupon code for free shipping! If you want to take advantage of this great offer (oh no, I sound like an informercial), just click on your favorite item in my shop and type (or copy and paste) WHATSUP4MONTHS into the coupon code box when you order. That's all it takes. WHATSUP4MONTHS. Also, you'll wanna do that before Sunday, September 22, because that's when the code expires, never to be seen or heard from again. 

I mean seriously, I can't reuse coupon codes. Once it expires, I have to come up with something entirely new next time I want to do something like celebrate a shop birthday or show my readers and customers appreciation for their awesomeness. But anyway, I'm rambling now. 


Also I apologize for missing last Friday's post; I was really busy all day and then I realized I didn't have any extra Friday posts written ahead of time, and I didn't know who to write about, and... I'm sorry. I'll do my best to write about someone super awesome tomorrow.
