i hope you all had a great weekend! we did! i felt like my weekend started on friday at 1. vic came over with lunch....and she actually brought me a poop sandwich, handcrafted with paper clay! i took photos, but in an effort not to gross everyone out, so early on a monday morning, i won't post! to hear her tell the story of the 3 hour effort she put into my poop sandwich, made my whole weekend! the chick can tell a funny story! it was so good to just hang out and chat. we sat on the floor of my VERY messy studio chatting for a long time. saturday morning, i spent 3 hours cleaning, purging and updating the mess. this morning i snapped a couple of photos.
i bought this sweet little vintage medicine cabinet at a tag sale for $10. i had intentions of hanging it in the typical manner, but didn't really have the ideal space. i need all the storage space i can find in my studio, so i decided to use it this way for now. it's perfect for small stamps, paints, glitter, adhesive...i'm really not done setting it up.
this shot of the floor is for vicki : ) notice the paper scraps aren't vacuumed yet.
i spend hours and hours in this little room. it's my refuge....my sanctuary. we will be flying to seattle later today and i have to admit i'm already a little homesick for my space...and we haven't even left yet! since i love my work so much, it makes me a little nervous to be looking at being away for a week! i'lll have limited access to email while we're away too. i think it will definitely be a time to recharge, and i think i'll come home excited to be creative and working. over the weekend, i worked on a super simple project, that i am more excited about than anything i've done in a while. i did it for the fiskars website, and i'll be able to post it in the next couple of weeks. i made one for vicki and she liked it so much she almost shed a tear : ) it's simple, but full of impact! can't wait to share it with all of you!
after spending most of the day working on my studio and the project for fiskars, i went over to my friend suzy's, and took a few photos of her son keith and his date and friends before prom. let me just tell you that keith is such a great kid. and i'm not just saying that. he has stepped up to the plate and is suzy's right arm. he helps with his younger siblings, like no other teenager i've ever met. i have utmost respect for suzy....and keith. words aren't enough. oh and it was raining out and totally freezing, so our photo ops were limited!
isn't she adorable?
my favorite shot. completely worth getting soaked and having the kids think i was a dork. suzy had her knee reconstructed a few weeks ago and that's her on the front porch watching them take off.
we had dinner at *the office* with donna and jamie after the pics. had a GREAT time...laughing, talking about everything from absurd to heavy, deep spiritual. i love friends who you can talk about everything with. laugh hysterically one minute, serious life issues the next. we are blessed to have good friends.
i did whip out a layout that's been in my head for a while. i didn't want to let this slide...i wanted it documented. from the time she performed at our wedding and ryan and jennifer's-we knew. she has a very bright future.
i hate goodbyes :) God bless your week!
