Bad Mary POppins Flashback

it is windy as hell today, it has been 70 degrees for almost a week now, and even though I know that is abnormal and that there is a gaping hole in the environment I didn't care.

(please don't send me angry mail, you all know I care about the planet)

Yet today on December 1st the winds have changed, quite literally in fact, they are blowing at about 60 mph.


when walking to work I almost got blown away with my giant umbrella, and I swear if I owned a gun and believed in senseless violence I would have shot out the tires on every card that beeped at me as I was trekking down the damn street.


sorry, do I sound angry about that???? I'm really not. In fact I'm really not a whole lot of anything right now. Things are slow today at the shop, which is understandable as the weather is hell.

But it just makes me feel all sorts of alone. It's odd though, in a few years if thngs go according to our "plans" I will be home all the time, working by myself, I can't wait...yet part of me is a little scared about it, wondering if eventually I will become a crazy shut in, I guess that wouldn't be so long as I am not expected to cook or clean.

This weekend is a peanut weekend, wish me luck, with the weather being bad we will be trapped in the house, I am hoping that by Sunday after she goes home I will have the need to work, I have been very unmotivated as of late. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I have been completely out of canvases for a week, and my options to make stuff has been limited to cards.

I really have been enjoying making slightly larger pieces lately...partly because I can see those better, my eyes have been hurting really badly.

I have 2 commission projects to work on as well, so that should keep me busy next week too.

I am a little afraid that I am sinking into a bit of a depression, I am fighting against it as much as I can, but it's hard, today I got up and was up for a little while, I was going to work or exercise a bit but I could barely bring myself to get up off the couch, so I went back to bed for a while.


oh, and I forgot to post this yesterday but...

I am offering a 20% off sale on everything in my Etsy Shop until December 20th. This sale is limited to my repeat customers as well as loyal blog readers. So if you decide to purchase anything and you are not a repeat customer, just write the words "Blog Sale" in the message to buyer section, and I will invoice you.

I figure it's only fair, if you care enough to stalk me at my blog, well deserve a sale.
