Welcome to my blog! I am Nan, the human component of this blog. B.A.G.S. (a.k.a. AINE) is my pug. This blog will notate musings, muses and British inspired goodies with an American twist. I own The Portobello Road Shoppe located at theportobellord.etsy.com. My specialties are: sewing, stitching, paper crafting and felting. Oh, and the occasional nummy brownies.
Crazy busy but I have to tell you all of some exciting happenings!
1. I am raising a(making a felted)PUG ARMY as my bestie T calls it. So excited about this! One I am particularly excited about for pug rescue. I hope I can find the proper items to make it work. Who knew a little hobby of mine and love of pugs would mesh together so well?! *squee*
2. BBC Radio contacted me and they are sending me the recordings of my interviews! As soon as I get them - i will figure out how to post them!
3. OMG I got this AMAZING package from edwoodpugz that will get a proper video showing because pictures cant do the lovely package justice! *flails* IT ROCKS!
4. My Adobe Illustrator class is FANTASTIC! I can't wait to get the software!
I wouldnt be anywhere without my friends and family but especially my beloved friend Mo. MO guess what?! I PUT MY BIG GIRL PANTS ON!!!
*squeee* I signed up for something that I kept on putting off for a while.
I am taking Adobe Illustrator at the School of the Art Insititue of Chicago Continuing Education Program so that I can master this program once-and-for-all. Big bday gifty to me. :) This class will also help me with another personal goal that I have been brewing. ;)
This is going to be a busy month - I go to class at night and Ms. Aine has to have her schedule adjusted. That means me, my car and my life needs to be uber organized. Shoot. Mo can you come to Chi-town and manage my life for the next two months? :)
