All Things Christmas Come To An End


merry merry christmas...one day late.

I was going to walk over to teh shop yesterday to kill some time, as my bubs (keith) was at work, but it was way too rainy...I decided instead to stay home and listen to Justin Timberlake really loudly and dance, dance dance.

please forgive...i am using no capital letters today, feeling lazy and weighed down after the holiday cakes.

so much to report...

the ballet was amazing, and a wonderful night that made me feel top full of not only holiday cheer, but has refreshed me artistically for a bit.

it did me real good to be there, and the lovely restaurant in german village was amazing. I now want to move there and have wonderful gas lanterns outside my house, with bright red walls and walking distance to not only the ghetto, but to wonderful shops and galleries.

i think if i was down there i would feel less glum about ohio.

spent saturday painting and finishing the great commission i was doing about african american musicians, i am so proud.

sunday was more of the same, but when bubs came home from work we decided to go and walk around easton and stop at mccormicks (where keith works) for a christmas eve drink, we were treated so wonderfully by some of the people that worked there, the maitre d decided to pay for everything for us, including our meal and drinks, then the head chef offered the same thing.

it was magic, the place is so great, food is wonderful and we even got to sit in one of the nice tables that has the curtain we can close for privacy...which we did so we could kiss a little.

also so i would not have to see the little toddler two tables away who kept making faces at me.

here's a little tip for everyone out there...don't bring your child to a restaurant where the meatloaf is $17 and the cheapest thing on the menu.

I drank many glasses of pinot grigio and felt awful sleepy and groggy on christmas morning.

we did presents that night when we got home, so we were able to have a nice kiss-miss celebration.

I got up early yesterday morning so we could do our christmas socks, but then stumbled back to bed when keith left for work.

so it was at times a beautiful holiday and other times it was lonely as hell.

things on my etsy store have been slow due to the holiday, but i am not too afraid. i am more trusting in what i am doing than i used to be, that is what is important.

i am going to be spending more time working on art and my plan to take over the world, once the new year starts.

i need to contact galleries and keep doing my thing.

the photo featured today is a new art card, lately i have been very obsessed with the androgyny fashion thing, i think it is because i am reading the gia book.

the card is called "the androgynous kiss" and it is available for sale in my etsy shop.

Jennifer,
Your work is so beautiful, I've looked at it often over the past couple of months. I'm switching my etsy site over to a new name, and I hope to have a successful shop like yours...someday-sigh. (deciduoussoul.etsy.com) Anyway, I feel the same about body issues, it's a constant battle. Hang in there!
