Thrifting success!

Yes! Need I say more? Finally found the elusive bead toy for our waiting room installation. $3.99 at the Sally Ann. Thank-you to whoever donated it!


Pens down…books closed


Finally finished The Sketchbook Project! Things I learned:

1. I like to make more work for myself (i.e. sign-up for something that sounded like a good idea at the time, only to realize there’s more important things to be working on, but finish at the last minute because not finishing would mean failure)

2. There’s always a way to justify buying new art supplies! Now I am the proud owner of blue and sepia Prismacolor fine liners.

3. When there’s a will, there’s a way. When you make something a priority, it gets done! Which reminds me that I think I’m overdue for a re-evaluation of my priorities…


Here’s a few pics of my finished sketchbook. Hope you enjoy! Now, I’m off to the post office to get this thing shipped away and out of my mind.

Finishing touches…hopefully

Just a couple weeks until Lindsay and I install our show. It’s come quickly. I think we’re on schedule, although when I told this to Lindsay she gave me a look that seemed to say she didn’t agree. But, I honestly think this show is coming together well, and has induced less panic & stress compared to shows in the past (hopefully that doesn’t change in the next couple of weeks).

Opening reception is Feb. 10 starting @ 7pm. Check out the facebook event for details.
