Brief Random Snippets
I swear I may even consider downloading JD's version of The Letter from Rock Star on Tuesday night. I thought it was awesome. Yes, he's immature. Cocky. A bit unpredictable. Conniving. But... damn, he totally draws me in. I'm also all about Marty and Jordis. And Ty's moved onto my B list, but he's still a player.
I think it was Deb Lacativa and I who briefly discussed how it would be clever to do a series of postcards with song lyrics about mail. So, JD's "my baby she wrote me a letter" is so totally on my list. (I've also added James Taylor to my list. "She gets a long letter, sends back a post card. Times are hard.")
Jeff accepted a job offer to be a Lead Engineer/Test Pilot for a company in Dallas. He'll do several weeks of training in various locations beginning in September, then we'll all move to Dallas in January or February. This is going to be a great fit for our family. I'm very proud of my smart and talented husband. Ok, fellow bloggers, I'm ready to hear all about what you love about Texas.
I cleaned my studio last week. I mean purged! I also took an inventory of supplies and works-in-progess. My list of WIPS includes 27 items. Too many. I even bought a new dry erase/bulletin board and made of list of said projects. And those four items listed on the right are the new projects I'd like to start. Hmmm. Which list do you think I should tackle first? Clearly several of the 27 are not destined for completion. That's ok. But, I was surprised to pull some out and feel a bit inspired.
There's some velvet coloring by Claire and a post card from Natasha Kempers-Cullen and another from Virginia Spiegle and Janet Ghio. All inspiring bits of art.
Big lumps of time this week have been spent doing my real job. I work about 30 hours a month, all from home, doing the design, layout and editing of a monthly newsletter. This month it's 24 pages. In fact, that's what I should be doing now.
