It's a surprise day....I didn't forget!
I'm in production mode for my next show. It's May 19th, down on Balboa Island.
I'm maybe just a tiny bit excited.
I know this because I woke up this morning with the thought of turquoise and book pages in my head. I think all my dreams were washed in turquoise.
I might be just a tad nervous as well, if I really begin thinking about the show. This thing is b.i.g.
Thank goodness for my sweet friend, Erin!!! She is giving me a lot of good advice.
I feel like I'm in production mode almost all day every day this week. It's been a doozy with cat scans, blood work, and swim practice for Miss B.
my fashion statements this week have been all over the map. From cute
to the newest in hospital wear. watch for it on the next project runway. I'm pretty sure it will show up.
I am happy to report that I am squeaky clean. I have been thoroughly checked out and the fluid around the heart is "just one of those things and not enough to get excited about." Same with the heart palpitations. No wonder my father always said it's hell getting old.
Miss Party has had it with the cupboard locks. Now she has moved on to the cupboard with all the plastic wear and opens that and pulls out what she pleases and leaves it all over the floor.
(No. I have not forgotten about the surprise. You have to keep reading, otherwise it wouldn't be a surprise.)
I finished the windowpane painted in chalkboard paint. I put primer on it first and it seems to be staying just fine. I'm going to have fun writing on it!
My eldest is graduating COLLEGE in one week. HOW does that happen? I seriously think there has been a secret time warp somewhere and the clocks have all been moved and no one told me. She is going nuts getting all the classes over with and studying for finals. Then, poof! Done. Finito. Four years are over. It's quite the transition.
It's o.k. to cry like a baby at college graduations, right????
I have to give a little shout out to GoldenStateArt. While I was sitting in radiology on Tuesday, I ordered a bunch of supplies, one of them being pre-cut mat boards.
It's Thursday while I'm writing this and my UPS guy just delivered my order!!! Is that fast, great service or what?
I recall I said on my last post that there might be a surprise today.
(I told you we would get to it!)
I like surprises. I think we all need some.
I came to the other day and discovered I have written over 500 posts!
That's a lot of sharing and talking and listening and getting to know people.
It's a really good reason to celebrate. That said, let's have a
(throw confetti and toot horns.)
Because I don't want to just have a little fun, I thought I'd have
Here's what I'm giving away:
Vintage book page, altered with acrylic paint and ink, and matted.
Vintage book with seam binding and a little bitty 2x2 painting.
Set of six notecards.
Oh, wait. Sorry. I tried that before and it didn't go over very well. I could throw in the plastic wear, but that's o.k.-I'll hold off until next time.
