Happy New Year's Eve - We're Phoenix Bound!

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! 

I hope you all have some rockin' plans to ring in 2013. My hubbs and I are keeping it low key this year because we are headed to Phoenix on New Year's Day to cheer on our beloved cats in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl! Whoop Whoop! I personally have never been to a bowl game before, so I'm really looking forward to it even if I do have to sacrifice a wild New Year's Eve party. The 65 degree weather doesn't hurt that much either. Are you jealous yet?

However, because New Years is one of the most exciting holidays in the world of fashion, I had to play the what if game. IF I were going out a celebrating the New Year in style, I could dream of lifting my glass amongst friends wearing a little something like this. A girl can dream right?


I wish you all a very happy and safe New Year's celebration and we'll see you in 2013! Go Cats!

New Adventures are my Favorite - It's Etsy Time!

Where does one begin when she hasn't blogged for over a year? Beg for forgiveness? Offer a million excuses? Maybe pretend like no time had passed and just write whatever comes to mind? Or maybe, just maybe, kick off her new blog post with a bang by offering some exciting news? Yes, yes, I like that idea the best.  Check it:

Someone has opened her very own Etsy Store! What, WHAT!? You heard me right. My original intention and goal for starting the blog in the first place has finally been realized. That's right... The Curious Yellow is now offering my hand painted art on canvas to the public!

I mean how great is Etsy.com? I don't know what took me so long. I mean it was super easy to set my store up, and after all, what purpose do goals serve if you never intend on achieving them? Sure, there's the slight fear of  failure, but you never know until you try. So here I am, trying. If you can find away to monetize something you love to do, well my friends, that is the perfect scenario....the dream. I may never sell a single thing, but I'll be so glad that I set a personal goal for myself and achieved it. Worst case scenario, I'll have some fabulous art to gift to my friends and truly enjoyed myself while I created them. :)

Here's my current fave piece, and I'm being entirely honest when I say I would hang anything I have painted and will paint in my own home. I really do love them all.

Many more where that came from! For those who are interested to see what I have been working on and will be working on in the coming days, you can check back at my store occasionally, and I'll be pinning my new stuff on my Pintrest Curious Yellow board, as well as blogging while new pieces are in progress. 

My adventure is just beginning so wish me luck!
