wait...where did the weekend go?




good morning strangers!!

ok, where the hell did the weekend go? no, seriously....it's gone and I hardly remember it.

First, I want to say a big thank you to all the people who gave me well wishes during my plague...I am feeling a bit better, though totally run down, not sure what I have or even if it's gone, luckily I have my bubs, and I have been able to give myself over to a book.

The Other Boleyn Girl

(thanks again to Karen Beth for loaning me the book)

I know I talked about it the other day, but seriously, seriously...oh, my god...it is so good!!

I have been in that world for days, every chance I get!! Thank god it was about 700 pages, I am almost done...I feel like when I am done it will be like losing a limb, I am that attached to it right now.

ok, enough about the book.

Saturday Keith worked crazy hours and then by the time he got home he was so tired, I managed to get a teensy bit of work done, but I did get a bunch of things packaged to go to the PO...then on Sunday we started to do out TAXES...argh!

Well, I should not complain, we a re a bit more organized this year and all, and in reality Keith did all the hard work yesterday, all the totaling, and adding of all the papers (am I impressing you with my business speak?). I will be left to fill out forms and the like for the actual forms.

We are lucky though, as this will be the last year that we have to file for the comic shop. YAY!!!

I really can't stress that YAY, enough.

I tried in vain last night to organize my collage supplies, thinking that not knowing where anything was, played a part in the creative block....

all I have to say is, my goodness I have a ton of bits and pieces.

I only got about 1/3 of the way through it before I just had to stop, I was so tired and bored of it, plus I was aching to get back into my book.

Oh, sorry to be all over the place, but you all HAVE to go look at Gillian's blog, she is finally showing some photos of the Corset she is designing using imagery from one of my paintings, it is delicious. I am showing one photo here, because I just HAD to, but you need ot go there to see the rest!!!

ok, now I must get some work done, I have not gotten anything accomplished in days and days...

well, I did get a few pieces done over the weekend, including one piece that the lovely Michelle snatched up right away after I featured it on Saturday, as well as this small collage, titled, "Will I Wear This Dress"

I also just listed "I Have Words For You" which features a cool fashion illustration.

I have it listed in my etsy shop.

until tomorrow lovelies, in which you will read a post about how much I loved the book which I will no doubt finish tonight, so get your thinking caps on, I might be asking for book suggestions.

xoxo

Jennn, I will have one million and two book suggestions for you. Never ask a guy who sells books for a living to give you book recommendations. He may never shut up.

I'm so glad that you are enjoying the book. I thought you might. I also dreaded it ending when I got toward the finish but it wraps up nicely and didn't leave me pining for more, really. If you know of anyone else who would like to borrow it, feel free to send it on to them. I can get it back anytime.

I'm SOOOO glad that you are feeling better! Don't work too hard today though. Rest... that is a good idea ANYDAY! :)

xo,

Karen Beth :)

Oh, I just have to pipe in and say that two REALLY good books are:

Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman

and

Entre Nous: A Woman's Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl

Both REALLY good! I don't have a copy of the first but I could lend you the second one.

And my favorite book of all time is called Life Could Be Sweeter by William Sinunu. LOVE IT! SO GOOD!

Okay, that is all from me for now. :)

Did you ever read The Time Traveler's Wife? It took me awhile to read it, as I thought, time traveling? um, no. BUT - It is ridiculously good, movie good. In fact it was suppose to be a movie with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston but I am not sure what is going on with that since the divorce.

My dearest Jenn! Thank you so much for your wee highlight to my blog. I am so glad you are excited about the corset and I really hope you like what you see so far!! (More photos will be added on Wednesday as I well be helping set up the exhibition all day tomorrow and then there is a wee preview at night) But I can't wait to get proper well lit photos in the gallery without all my workroom junk in the background!! So I will be able to email them to you as soon as I can load them onto the PC.

Have a wonderful day!!

I love when I get that involved in a book... it makes me so sad when it ends, I feel like all the characters have died off and I'm the only one left standing.

Oooohhhhh, I can never stress enough how wonderful your work is!!!! The colors.. the images.. everything!!!! Yes, you are right, I will be ready right in time, but not a moment before.. like I will be ready 2 minutes before someone gets there on that saturday... Yikes!!!! I am so glad you are better! the book is good??????Yes. The lost limb theory. Well, we both know I understand this. As, I walked with my rented copy of Marie Antoinette to blockbuster. Found out I was only 10 days late, not 30...and took it back out of her hand and left.. it is on repeat again.. I am infatuated with the wardrobe!!!!!!!!!!

Anyhow.. Off to see Gillina's work!!!Wonderful!!I lover her. Isn't she so easy to love?

Love you sweets!!xxo,Vanessa
