The Mean Cheese Is Coming

The Mean Cheese Is Coming, The Mean Cheese is Coming.....

ok so we were not supposed to have the little mean cheese this weekend but......her mom called last night (late) and asked if we could switch as Keith is working all Easter weekend so he would not be able to see her at all, plus his ex hates me and still doesn't want me to care for her child...

I digress...

so the mean cheese will be here later in the evening, which if you remember, might be a disaster. We started to tear apart the apartment so we would give me a new work space, but we never finished we tore it up and then decided to wait until Sunday to finish as we would both be here....

so now....there will be trouble, there is quite literally stuff everywhere art supplies and books have taken over the entire house.

My bubs was adorable he just kept saying "you have to make a mess to clean a mess" every time he saw the look of fear and panic in my eyes.

So today's post will be cut short, as I have some work I need to get done before I start to clean up, that work for the most part is getting two new block sets up in my shop, one already might be spoken for...not sure yet.***

But I am determined to get them done as they are about 1/2 way there now....

I also did two new collages and posted them last night on etsy.

I am very proud of them, I don't know why but I am, they both seemed so delicate, and well vulnerable in a way, if that makes sense?

The one done in pink tones is called "Farther Down I Am Desperate For You" (title totally swiped from Mathew Sweet lyrics)

and the green one is called "Something Takes My Pain Away" (ditto for the title of this one).

the other photo today is the mean cheese of course, look how adorable she is!!

I wanted to thank you all for visiting Amy's blog yesterday that was wonderful, also thank you all for sharing your stories of pre-teen angst with me as well, I think that is why we are all bonded together like this, if we all met in person we really would be friends, I can just tell.

While blog stalking this morning I had my daily read of Isabella's blog and low and behold....she wrote about the lovely collaborative corset that Gillian made with one of my collage works.

I was so excited to see it, Isabella is scary talented, really...her work is delicious, please tell her that she needs to open up an etsy shop!!!

***(new blocks are officially posted, one is already gone and the other is shown here)

Oh Jenn I saw Izabella's blog too!! How wonderful! And we are in a treasury list - the one called 'Pretty Please' and it is making it's way to the top of the treasury. Now I just wish you could see that gold star next to the list as I do!!

Oh I hope you have a great weekend with the mean cheese. She looks adorable!

Now I have to go as I might be tempted to gaze at that stunning piece in the pink tones..... I just adore it...but alas money isn't just tight, it is non existant at the moment. It is simply stunning.

Have a great weekend! xxx

Have I said how much I adore your collaboration with Gillian!

I'm sure your weekend with the Mean Cheese will be fabulous. You can play dress up and watch Sesame Street.

Love the new pieces!

All the kids I know love to help clean (until they hit 10, maybe younger now). Maybe you can get Mean Cheese to help out, organize some colors or papers or something? I am a wishful thinker.

Have a great weekend!

Jody...that is wishful thinking, Sarah is special needs and has autism as well, so really she is the boss there is no cleaning with her.

She does fixate on fashion magazines though, so there is always that, she can sit and just look at Vogue for hours.

Good morning!

I love your new piece "Something Takes My Pain Away". It is a beautiful piece but also in my second most favorite color in the history of time. Chartreuse is second only to deep red in my book so I heart heart heart it. Great work!

Don't panic about the mess! I'm sure that The Mean Cheese can do her thing around the mess. Just breathe. :)

Have a good one!

I wish that I could give you advice on ex's but I don't know the answers myself.

I sure hope that you get everything done that you need to do. :) I bet you will. No Worries! I hope that you don't overwork yourself girly!

I'm so very happy for you that your stuff is so pretty that it sells out before I have a chance to buy it but...I think I shall spend my weekend weeping that I missed out on that beautiful new pink piece of the girl in the dress. I logged on to buy it -- but poof -- it was gone. Let that be a lesson to all your fans: If you love it, buy it. It won't be there tomorrow.
