and it was all going so well...

plans

That's life for you. I had a pretty tight time line set for myself to get all my shop items done and photographed by tomorrow. And SURPRISE! Both kids woke up screaming in the middle of the night- J with the stomach flu (same virus as daddy?) and N with a cough and high fever.

SO if you're looking for me, I'm the one in my robe, with green snot on my shoulder and vomit on my slippers. I'm looking pretty. For now, as much as it sometimes pains me, I'm mommy first and artist second. That's what I signed up for. I'll let you know soon when the rescheduled update will be. HOPEFULLY before the week is out. See you in a day or two. Love and good health to you all. (p.s. free motion quilting is like drawing with thread. cool.)

february first

outside.JPGFebruary is difficult. The bustle of the holidays is over, the birthdays have passed, and the cold and gray seem to seep into my bones. I know I have a hard time every February too, so the anticipation makes it even worse. I try to stay optimistic, but I can already feel the funk creeping in. I was going to take the month off from this site and Brian talked me out of it. (wow.) He thinks maybe it isn't smart to stop doing something that helps keep me busy right at a time that I'm feeling so uninspired, right when I might need it most. He's right. Instead I am going to try to post every day this month. Many days may just be a photo, because you see, it's February and I'm in a funk and there's not so much going on. Oh, right. I already said that. At any rate, you'll be hearing and seeing a lot from me.
