…one best summed up by a list:

1.  Prepped and dropped off notes and prints with various boutiques…(just in time for St. Pat’s)

2.  Enjoyed a long overdue lunch with my cousin Rebecca.

3.  Switched cars with Nick to save on gas mileage.

4.  Dined outside at Sol with Cima, another long overdue social.

5.  Got rear-ended by a Hummer (on the 2nd day driving Nick’s car…nice)

6.  Overindulged on  St. Pat’s with Aunt Pam, but still held onto my “Get of Jail Free Card” from Dad.

7.   Then “told off” the jerks at Citibank that handle my student loan.

8.  Completed my taxes.

9.  Continued work with 5 brides…details of which will be posted…one day

10.  Reshipped a print that got lost in the mail on the way to California…watch out postmaster, I might tell you off next…

I’m sure I’ve neglected something here, but suffice to say, I’m content to put this week behind me.

This weekend truly was one of the best!  Nick and I had “date night” on Friday, and enjoyed fabulous food at a Japanese Steak House.  Believe it or not, this was Nick’s first visit to a Japanese Steakhouse…(even though he worked in a Japanese restaurant for a while…lol!  )  Anywho, we were lucky enough to have the chef all to ourselves…gorged ourselves like little piggies, and spent the rest of the night watching The Office on DVD.  My kind of night.

Saturday night marked a reunion with one of the most creative and inspiring people in my life, Dana Jo.  It had been at least two years since our last visit, and she, along with her charming roommate Mandy, were like a breath of fresh air.  They presented Cima and I with these gorgeous creations they’ve been crafting…see below…

Carved out of birch and hand-painted…I LOVE LOVE LOVE this little gem!  Apparently, they have an owl charm, and believe it or not…an entire series of vegetable pendants!  They hope to have them available for purchase online in the not-so-distant future…so I’ll keep you posted…

Cima was gracious enough to have us over for cocktails and a truly Irish inspired dinner of corned beef and cabbage.  It was great to have us all together in one room…good times indeed.

Of course, being the selfish human being that I am…I managed to wrangle Dana to my home studio…(I only get to pick her brain so often…)  No sooner did we arrive at my house, did the massive blackout occur…This being St. Pat’s weekend in Savannah and all…we decided the best thing to do was drink…and drink a lot…it took the edge off, when the tornado sirens went off…and just like the good old college days…we ended up staying up until 4am chatting it up about art, life, and more art…thanks Dana for a wonderful visit…let’s have art camp soon!

Lastly, I woke up yesterday more motivated than ever to create…after Dana and Mandy left for Athens…I threw myself together and hooked up with Bekah for some sewing time.  We decided to make skirts without patterns…(can’t be that hard right?)   Had a blast picking out fabric…and returned to Bekah’s house ready to roll…unfortunately, it just wasn’t our day to create…Bekah didn’t buy enough fabric…so we had to make an additional trip to the store…then I totally messed up the drawstring for my skirt.  Bekah’s sewer decided to come apart, and to top if off…we both made our skirts too small…lol!  fun times dahling…let’s do it again soon.

I feel soooo incredibly lucky to have such an eclectic fun loving bunch of people in my life…thanks for a great weekend.
