whew! life is a whirlwind…

February 2, 2009

This weekend, we celebrated Granny J’s 80th birthday with a family meal at the Pirate’s House.  So many times my mural work occupies a private residence, so it’s always great when my family can see one in real life.  Just look at those happy pirates…

It was great fun indeed!

Mom also made her way to Savannah for the weekend, and we had a lovely time scouring wedding magazines and hunting for that perfect “mother-of-the-bride dress”….eeek, some of those ones with the jackets are horrendous!  Glad we started the hunt early.

Well, I better go clear out a spot in the studio for my new epson baby! It’s due to arrive today, and I can’t wait to try it out…oh it will be like Christmas!

In other exciting news, I bought the Epson!  I can’t wait to get  my hands on it…looks like it’s set to arrive on Monday…oh it will be like Christmas!  Thanks to all of you who helped steer me in that direction.

Sorry to have neglected you blog lovin’ folk!  I must say, January always seems the month to tie up loose ends, attend to the real business side of things…revamping this, tweaking that, and taxes…ugh….taxes!  Oh and we bought a wii…so yeah, a little distracted to say the least.  The other missing part seems to be inspiration…since my printer is a jerk…(there I said it)…I’ve had to fore go many of my initial January plans, and search for inspiration elsewhere.  I have an idea of the direction in which I want to take things, but it hasn’t exactly beat me in the head or anything…so I’m holding out.

According to Nick, I’ve been talking up a storm in my sleep about printers…I’m still torn as to which beast to go with…which one would you go with?
