in paperwork that is…icky icky poo!  I spent yesterday slaving over my tax organizer, throwing papers around the studio, and making one royal mess…

Thankfully Cima was so kind as to serve me vodka and take me out for a most wonderful meal at Alligator Soul…(ps…for all you Savannah Foodies…Cima has keeps the best dining blog and dining reviews in Savannah…check her out!)

In other news…my  new shop has seen some love on the treasury circuit.  I’m always honored to see someone has chosen my work to be surrounded by so many other fabulous items.

Whew!  I’m off to drop of the tax organizer…and to celebrate my freedom from receipts and mathematics, I’ll be painting up a storm this weekend.  Three pet portraits and then some…so if you should call, and I neglect to answer…know that I am in a state of pure bliss, and mean no offense.

Since the start of 08, I’ve been trying to get my ducks in a row.  Trying to tie up this loose end, and that loose end…start this project, finish that one, and blah blah blah… it’s been life consuming.  Which I suppose is unavoidable when you make a living doing something you love…I mean, I eat sleep and breath art…(not that I’m complaining, but if I’m being honest there are some jobs that interest me, while others I could do in my sleep…sadly, the ones I can do in my sleep are often the ones that pay the bills…vicious cycle I tell you…)  Took me 4 weeks to get back over to see grandmother…(I’m not proud of that, but thankfully she’s discovered that a real hairdresser does a better job.)  Nick and I actually had to schedule a date night…and finding time to work out has been easy to forget.  Oh and taxes…my least favorite chore of the year…they’re finally done.  So I woke up on Friday…discovered that I had, indeed acquired a weekend of no major deadlines/projects, and we decided to celebrate.  A small gathering of friends came over for dinner…(don’t worry, I didn’t do the cooking…)  Jason, Nick and Dawn thoroughly enjoyed the bb gun…this picture says it all:

nice J…

While they were busy shooting pizza boxes, Bekah and I took inspiration from fabric…and believe it or not, I actually made some clothing that fit.  A skirt, and a dress…all without pattern…(patterns are not my friends anyway)

Now it’s back to the drawing board…but with a refreshed sense of creativity.
