Info about the Team Tracy Pins

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to write a blog about the Team Tracy pins I sell in my shop. Once again congrats to all the winner's of my give away!! If you missed out on your chance to grab your own TEAM TRACY button, they are currently on sale in my Etsy Store. Tracy is in full support of these buttons to help promote her! In fact she's posted on my Facebook and official fanpage wall, links to buy them:

The remaining stock I had immediately sold out. So I had to restock my inventory with the 30 I have left.

I also designed a cute thank you to go along with your purchase. It's a 5x7 card on glossy paper and I slip it right in the mailer with your merchandise!

Remember the new link to purchase is at:

Thanks everyone for the support and have a great day!!

How my Hands are Famous

Today I noticed something, my hand was in the photograph of something important going on. And this isn't the first time. Throughout my life I have found my hand appearing in crowds atleast three times.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have very small, childlike hands. I am only 5ft tall so my feet are small, my hands are small, etc. I also always wear the same bracelets.

Here are the three historic events my hands were in:

1. MSI @ the Electric Factory in Philadelphia Pa

Often times at concerts I'm not in the FRONT row but the one behind the front. When I first saw thsi photo I immediately noticed my baby fist defiantly clenched emerging from the crowd. Complete rebel I know. The girl who seems to be rolling her eyes was very nice and took a video for me at the show. You can also see one of my friends pink hair sticking out if you look slightly down and to the right of the circle where my hand is located.

Here is me and my friend at another concert, Bamboozle to be exact.

2. MSI @the crock rock cafe in Allentown:

I love me some Mindless Self Indulgence! This is fact. Now in this picture the circle is not indicating the guy with the glasses, but instead my hands wearing the red fishnets. They were periodically taking pictures on the stage of the crowd and in order to let my hands to be apart of history everytime I saw the camera I threw them into the air, like I just don't care.

Here is a horrible photograph of me pre-msi show. Clearly we see the same fishnets and black t-shirt.

3. Jerseylicious Summer Kick off Party
(original source Tracy DiMarco's Facebook)

This is the last place I recall seeing my hand in a published photo. I was at the Jerseylicious Summer Kick off Party at the Gatsby Salon around like... June... or May. I usually wear all the same bracelet's everyday now, the blue and grey silicone bracelets.

Here is a photo of me and my bracelets:

And here is another photo of a close up of just my bracelets:

There's no doubt about it, that's MY hand. I was so surprised to see it there that I decided to write this blog and look back at all the memories of my hand being in photos.

Who knows where they will turn up next?

Hey everyone! Just wanted to let everyone know I joined a great cause. There is a new site called It is giving artists the opportunity to create a work of art, to be sold. They are raising social awareness with help of the Blind Project about survivors and victims of the commercial sex trade in South East Asia. Three girls have three unique stories and it is your job to illustrate them.

I chose Jiali's story. She did not know her boyfriend had plans to sell her into slavery. He told her to look extra pretty the day he took her to the bar. Luckily she was informed of what was really going on and managed to escape to a safe house where she has learned what it feels like to be really loved. Here is the design I created for her story:

You have until September 15th to submit an entry. The designs will then be voted on for a winner from September 16th to October 7th. My design is up in their gallery, I'll remind you guys once it's time to vote, for now check it out @

Just for Fun

Hey everyone. Yesterday I found a fun avatar builder online. It is on the Scott Pilgrim vs the World Website. They do not give you very many options for your face, hair, clothes etc but it was still a welcome break when I was working on freelance projects yesterday.

Visit the site by clicking here, and start building!

Here is how mine turned out:

Avatar builders are so much fun. Makes me wish I knew more about flash to build my own someday. :P

Have a good day!

2011 Diary Project Wrap Up

Well I hope everyone had a fun and safe independence day. I spent the day with my family. We shot fireworks off in the backyard for about 2 hours. Some of them were really cool, others were duds. It was nice to be with majority of my family having fun.

Unfortunately to hear this morning, a fireworks show near me, kind of exploded. You can watch the video on Youtube for the Palmyra Fireworks show. Apparently people were injured with shrapnel, concussion like injuries, and burned. Very sad to hear.

In other news though, I did not get to send out the giveaway prizes (pins) from last week today because the post office is closed for Holiday. So I will send those out tomorrow morning.

And finally the 2011 Diary project is coming to a close. I encouraged a lot of my friends to particapate and two of them did complete pages. Here is what they came up with:

Kara got to do a calendar page for the month of March. Very nice! You can check out more of her work at

And my friend Tamara did a page for Thursday, August 18th. So cute!! Love this! To see more of her art please visit

And finally here is the finished page I made for April the 9th:

It was really fun getting to work on this project. Cannot wait until next years journal! Have a great day everyone!

Happy One Year to ME

Hey everyone June is over, and it's onward to July! July 3rd is the Anniversary of me just starting this blog. I was fresh out of school, and to be honest, I've come a long way since then!! I have a job in my field, I made some great friends, and great contacts with fellow artists and celebrities. Wow! My Twitter account has over 100 followers now as well. All those links are in the SIDEBAR to the right!

I'd like to thank everyone for their support via my Facebook page, commenters on this blog, my Twitter followers, and of course clients I wouldn't trade in for the world; thanks guys!

Just a few quick things to mention in this post. The 2011 Diary Project is wrapping up July 7th. So if you have not already please, PLEASE, reserve a date!

You get to create a page in a published book for FREE! Free exposure, how can you go wrong?? I actually got the opportunity to make ANOTHER page and I'm working on it RIGHT NOW!

Second of all I showed Tracy the pin designs I made and she loved them. I am going to aim to make 50 more. So far I have 4 left and posted them in my etsy shop. Follow this link to get your own!

Thirdly, I got my Art Trade piece in the mail from Nicky on TourCrush, and I loveeeee it. I was so happy to finally find it in the mail. Imma get a frame for it at work probably tomorrow at Michaels!
