I cannot believe that it is the last day of September. Where does time go? I have so many projects going on, it’s hard to stay focused long enough to finish anything. I have made some slow progress on my studio. I still have quite a bit of work to do but I’m getting there. I kind of veered off from the plan I originally worked out with Brandie. But since I’ve been taking my putting things away, I’m really optimistic about the finished product. My dad finished my work table but I haven’t painted it so it’s not in the room yet. I thought I’d post a couple pictures anyway.
when I want to solder, I'll put the fan in the window for ventilation
I got the greatest bins for my paper at the Container Store!
I've got to be the worst photographer but I sure hope it looks better in the first two pictures than it does here. What do you think?
some of my favorite things
I had this little settee outside but it was really getting dirty and fading. I spent more on it than I really should have and didn’t want it to get trashed so I brought it into my room. It’s not really functional (although, three boxes fit nicely underneath) but it’s too cute and it makes me want to be in there. The doll is something I had made in my daughter’s likeness. The artist did a good job, I think. Amber was a little freaked out when she saw it.
I finished my trades for Art & Soul. I think I like the packaging better than what’s inside. 🙂
trades for Art & Soul
A while ago, I dropped my laptop on the floor and the corner of my LCD cracked just a little. I managed to make it worse and now abut a quarter of my screen is not usable. I bought a new one but I don’t know if I should attempt to install it myself. I think I’ll be calling on my brother… time to cash in on all that babysitting.
I’m also working out all the final details for Deryn Mentock‘s JouJou Workshop. It is going to be a wonderful time. Good food, great people, and lots of fun. It’s also a time to learn something new and invest in yourself and your well-being. For me, it’s so important to persue activities that nourish my soul. When I surround myself with other like-minded, artsy-types, I feel an uncommon energy… a co-mingling of our strength… synergy… I’m sure you know what I mean. I hope if you’ve considered attending, you take this opportunity and savor the experience; you will not regret it. Please leave me a comment or send me an email if you’re interested in knowing the details. Hope to hear from you.
