I know I've not been the best at keeping up with this blog in the past year...I need to work on that, because the one thing you should know about me is that I love sharing pretty much everything. clearly I am an open book.
Lots of things go on in my life, my days are completely full....just like you and most people in this day and age. we are all living these kinds of controlled circus style lives. (well some of us have it under control) I just have to laugh at the absurdity of things in my life, because I definitely don't have it under control, but I guess I like living on the wild side.
So just to give you a peek I will share what went down this week.
I heard a crash, a jingle of bells and flapping sounds..... My little parakeet fell off her perch with this kind of open-toed paralyzed foot.
oh man. really? now what.
well my little $20 bird went to the vet.
$85 later my bird got a clean bill of health, no broken bones, healthy, perfect weight, but perhaps some sort of nerve damage to her foot. so I now get to give my parakeet anti-imflammatory medicine via a tiny eyedropper every day.
evidently This is my level of comittment.
here's a fun trick, have a couple of cocktails and try and handle your un-tamed bird that bites, without gloves because you have this notion that somehow you've bonded and it will be o.k. because deep down you think she likes you!
this is not the case.
SO! In between administering meds to a grumpy bird, I have been painting the walls at my shop.......
everything is getting a fresh coat of paint....this is my new class room, isn't it pretty?
In fact if you want to come hang out in my lovely new space, I have some classes lined up online now! you can check out my class line up here . I even have a couple of night time classes lined up too.... cocktails, hors'douvres, creating tiny masterpieces....doesn't that sound like fun? :)
Now I have also had a couple of friends move their studios into my shop. one is a couture seamstress that makes adorable little baby clothes.....
i'm trying to talk her into making adult clothes too....so stay tuned on that.
on the other side of my shop I now have a custom lamp, and lamp shade maker setting up her little creative space! how fun is that!?
in fact she has a class online now as well! she will teach you how to create your very OWN lampshade right here in my shop! i'm signing up for sure!
we have all been busy setting up our spaces, painting walls and making things behind the scene.
This bed is waiting for pillows that are being made now....slowly but surely...
in between dolls that i've been making....
and old ones I've unearthed that I made years ago that will FINALLY get bodies!.....
because this is how an A.D.D. artist operates......creating little things here and there
in between birds, dogs,
life......you know the deal. tiny snippets of time in a day to
clean my messy, cluttered studio, (and mind)
makes you want to hide right? ;-)
nah! I embrace the nuttiness, it makes life so much more exciting and fun.
so on that note, I am back to sewing my little home pillow in my freshly painted class room, because it is such a pretty and serene space.....don't you think? :)
Really, really pretty, sunny, and fresh, you know you'd like to join me here right?
well you are always more than welcome :)
