Some Poor Soul in the Forbidden City

Sep 6

Hello there.
I’ve made two new wallpapers, up in a variety of sizes.

"Bad fortune ne’er should daunt me, for I am young and the world is wide"I designed the above wallpaper to keep myself from getting too down lately. I’ve been spending my time applying fruitlessly for every job I can find. I can think of a few words to describe this economic recession, and most of them are plagiarized from George Carlin.

There’s also this wallpaper with proverbs. When searching them out for use here, I came across an interesting one from China: Do not remove a fly from your friend’s forehead with an axe. I hope this doesn’t mean that 600 years ago in the Forbidden City some poor soul found this out the hard way.
I’ve added five new backgrounds, this time a very eclectic collection. I’ve got three collage-style backgrounds that I assembled out of junk mail and old magazines, a deco design in teal and orange, and a background listing some 1930s diner lingo.
To be fair I’ve never actually heard anyone use diner lingo in my entire life, but I’d love to hear the workers at McDonalds shout out "Burn one, take it through the garden and pin a rose on it" every time somebody wants a burger.

With love,
Sarah

Four new backgrounds are up. What a lot of pretty.

Hopefully soon I will start selling some fabric with these prints. That would be super because I am as poor as the nutritional value of a Twinkie.
