Yes that is supposed to be in all caps. I feel like I have not been able to make anything in ages. It's only been a few days, but that can feel like forever. I have been in my house purging. I can't believe how much stuff adds up. My studio will be next. It needs to be cleaned out and organized. It seems every couple of months everything needs a good clearing. I know some people can get by with once a year, but I think I might like my things a bit too much. I have a hard time getting rid of them. I see this tendency in my daughter too. Oops. The last couple things I have made I don't have photos of. So, here is a random picture.This is my favorite shelf in my studio. I really like my typewriter (turquoise, score!) and my mini chair.

So much happening

So, I have so much going on and so many pieces that I am working on. The first thing that I have been trying to do is work doing a piece a day. I have a file sorter book that has pages 1-31. Each is a bit thicker than card stock and with gesso makes a great canvas. About 4 days are finished when there should really be 7. But other pieces have taken over my time. Everyday is a studio day which is very nice.
I should have lots more to say tomorrow. I have to say that I am really sad that my favorite blogger will no longer be out in the blogging world. I love her art and I love what she writes. She has inspired me for quite a while now.

So, here is day one of my page-a-day plan.
More tomorrow.

A little behind...

So, I have been behind in my blogging. But I have not been behind in my painting. Since the kids have been back at school I have been out in my studio working. Which of course leaves the house neglected, but there is no one to make a mess so it all evens out... Anyway, I finally completed a piece that I am sending to the Art Without Borders show in Los Angeles and that is going in the mail tomorrow. Yahoo. Ta, Da....
*** Update, 9/15/08, I tried putting this post up on the 9th, but it wouldn't work. So here is that post. This has been mailed.

End of the weekend...

Tonight is the end of our long weekend away. I would like to say that I achieved many things, but really I just chilled out at the houseboat. It was very nice. I did manage to make it over to SCRAP which always inspires me. I found a few treasures. One in which I am hoping to start on tomorrow. I have a huge laundry list of things to get done over then next couple of weeks. Most of them art and sewing related. And of course, starting a new job. I am very excited. I did not take one single picture this weekend. I was so lazy. I had a very nice Saturday night when Cinda and Josh came over. That was really nice and mellow.
So, here is a page from "Wreck this Journal" by Keri Smith. This always gets me out of a slump.
