yes, I have returned to you all

good morning....

how are you?? Sorry for the hiatus yesterday, but was feeling altogether swamped with packages and no new work to show you, plus I had a lunch date with Diana (she gave me Dior, I can take a day off for her).

Diana came over to look at some of my newer pieces and ended up buying something, then we headed into town and had a long and drowsy lunch sitting outside...

all in all it was very nice, now if only I could shake this damn cough I have, I would have been able to really enjoy it without thinking of the pain in my lungs...

anyway, moving on....I did get to work on some new pieces yesterday as well, so it was a day filled with stuff, sadly my bubs was at work all day and out last night so it seems that the day was filled with everything but him.

our weekend with the mean cheese was crazy as usual, the warm weather has increased her meany and cheesy nature, and she actually spent a good part of a rainy Saturday standing at the screen door with it's teeny view of the park next door, just screaming to go out.

I think we collectively signed "no it's raining" about 54655752324 times.

Oh, and after the lil cheesy left we treated ourselves to a movie date ang got to go see Spiderman 3, which for the record, I LOVED (and hated some small parts but that is me being too geeky), my poor bubs hated it, though they focused on the storyline that made him stop reading the Spiderman comics in the 1990's...

oh, and speaking of comics...Saturday was Free Comic Book Day, we were both supposed to go and do an even at a local shop, but with the mean cheese only Keith could go for a bit in the morning....though, while he was there he met...A comic book artist, who might just be willing to take a stab at my book...yes, you heard it here first, cross your fingers everyone, because there just might be a Stiletto Heights #4 coming out!!!!

Quick knock on wood I don;t want to jinx it.....I would have to pay him, but his page rate is "almost" in my budget, meaning I could actually afford him...yay.

oh, sorry loves, this post is all over the place, you see this morning when I woke all I wanted to do was go back to bed, and only come out when I was no longer coughing...I considered taking today off from blogging too, just out of sheer sleepiness....but no, blogging will not be the same as working out for me, where once you stop it is so hard to start again.

I vow to you all that I am going to get it in gear and get something going for a good celebrity letter tomorrow.

make sure to check out my shop later as I am uploading new pieces today...also I have decided that I am going to have my fashion illustrations be buy one get one half off, I really think they would be best framed and hung as a series so that makes the most sense.

ok, off to work (15 steps away and still in my jammies)

Good for you for toughing it out and blogging even though you didn't feel like it. You are an inspiration to us all, Jenny from the Block.

Seriously, I can't wait for Stiletto Heights #4. If it comes down to it, I'll just illustrate it myself with little sick figures and such.

Also, issue #4 is where the "Aaron" character makes his debut, yes?

I love your fashion collage blocks (I know they're not in this post but they're great) and a comic book sounds sort of really cool.
The mean cheese is a kid right? Not some smelly priceless brie you have to guard day and night?

Isn't working from home the best? Sometimes alot of distractions, but working in jammies....priceless!

Your day sounds like it was pretty much lovely. I love love love the latest fashion sketches, I can see the progress. I was going to scan in and share some of my chanel reinvented ones for you but it's funny because you see how far you come in just 6 months and you think all your earlier stuff is crap that should never see the day of light. So I tucked it all back into my portfolio into the back of the closet, far far away.

I'm so sorry to hear that you are still not feeling well. Ugh! Maybe a day of rest (or at least partial rest) would be good today. Couldn't hurt. And, of course, maybe have TWO mochas, just for good measure. :)

I love that you are offering the Fashion Illustrations on a BOGO sale. Yes, I can imagine that they would look FAB paired up or in a set. Nice idea! They are great!

Glad to have you back today! You were MISSED!

On the bright side, at least you can take a little nap during the day to ease your poor coughing lungs!

Hope you're feeling better.

despite your cough you are still being very productive. I wish you nothing but the best in attempting comic #4, without trying to jinx you.

I am sorry your cough won't go away. Maybe drink some vitamin E to help things heal. I love the first sketch. It kinda looks like you, or at least the image I have of you in my head. I went to go see Spiderman 3, as well. I hated it. Well, hated everything except any scenes with james Franco in them. He is my future husband. I love him. Other than that, the entire movie reminded me of the lead singer of a bad emo band. Ugh. Feel better!!!

Jenn - the new illustration is gorgeous!! I really see a development in the short time you have been creating them. Beautiful.

Soooo excited about stiletto heights #4!!! I really hope the illustrator works out.

And painful lungs... I hope they get better soon, that doesn't sound like much fun atall.

The new pieces are great!
So, you liked Spidy 3? I can't decide if I want to see it or not... in any case, I think I'll wait for the crowds to die down. People at the IMAX on 68th street are practically frothing at the mouth to see it!
