i have been gone too long.
here is the short list of what has happened,
poster for THE CREATIVE CONNECTION
a t-shirt design for the passionately
pink on the palouse (breast cancer awareness)
this ended up being printed in black or pink (only)
*so sad as it was such a fun illustration,
but it still looks nice.
sandpoint art festival (check)
sun valley art festival (check)
*it took a couple of days to regroup from
the chaos of back to back shows, and i will
never do that again. WAY too much work.
after 3 days of rest i started in on a series of
40 handmade ornaments... (to be given as thank you
gifts for an up and coming conference). *not
telling for what. (oh...secrets, don't you hate them!)
they were ALL different,
and they were all CUTE!
next... back to school chaos for my now
second grader!!! (i forgot my camera, or
i would share a back to school photo). oh well,
i simply can't do it all... although i do keep trying.
i feel like the summer is gone now...
gobbled up by a long to do list.
i did fit in that nice little vacation to lopez island
though, and got to meet some relatives. so, tucked
away amongst all the chaos were a few highlights
(although i always long for more of them).
i suppose i just need to look in the mirror more,
and remind myself that i am a grown up now who has
a child to care for and bills to pay.
basically, i need to forgive myself for having
to work so much and play so little.
if only i could remember to enjoy the play more
when i get to do it.
