The holiday season has taken on a life of its own here at the studio- it just seems as though there isn't enough time to get done what needs to be done, much less what I want to get done! Now that the festivities are waning, along with that blue moon, I am hoping that things will get back to some sort of normalcy... Normalcy? What is that exactly? If anyone has a hint or a clue that they could share with me- I would be supremely grateful! Being one of those individuals that thrives on change- you would think I would be handling this whole traveling through life at Mach 3 with my hair on fire scenario that seems to be here of late- but, alas, I am not. Beyond popular belief, one can have a very exciting by the seat of your pants lifestyle and still enjoy order. The order part these days, yeah- not so much. And the simplest things seem to be taking the longest to complete.
Let us take blogging for example- simple process really- sign in, write, post. Done. And yet it takes forever to get done! Mental note- New Year, new blog schedule. Or at least try to keep up- would you? (that is me, scolding myself in my head). It IS the New Year! 2010! Hoot!! Happy New Year everyone! (see- I am over due in that. What would Miss Manners say!!)
I am also in the process of working with a group of extremely talented artists to produce a series of mixed-media altered tarot cards. I wasn't prepared for how difficult this one was going to be. You know- tarot cards- right up my alley! Should be a breeze! HA! Yeah- not so much- Even though the “assignment” was up to artist interpretation- a large amount of symbolism still needs to be included to make them “authentic” and that inlays the constraint. But this too shall be worked through- I have almost completed my first “card” The World.
Beyond that is VERY cold here in the northeast. Not much unlike most of the country these days... Snow, in Texas! And freezing temperatures in Florida! And we decide to try to blow a hole in the moon. But hey that is another whole soapbox for another day.
Sockdreams- In the dreamy cold city of Portland- These gals know what they are doing! They are my one true vice. OTK's and warmers to just... yum! Check them out when you get a chance- just be prepared- you are not going to want to leave without buying something!
For me- I am off- to throw another log on the fire, visit all of you lovelies and do some serious blog surfing.
