Frappio and Cashews make me crazy
Hope you are all well....first I would like to say a (huge) thank you for everyone for boob twin letters yesterday, really wonderful!!! I think I should theme it up every week.
ok...so I am sitting here drinking my Frappio (I feel like it's making me thinner) and eating a bowl of cashews (remember that thinner part, strike that), and I am enjoying my morning after I had a restless night's sleep.
You see, I dreamed that I had to go to my high school reunion, and I went with, Carmen Electra (I know, this is what I get), I think in the dream we were on a date, and I remember feeling uncomfortable because we were "like sisters".
So anyway, moving on......
You know how painfully insecure I am right? If you don't know, I am...painfully insecure that is. I can put on a good show at times, but inside I am usually crawling with self doubt.
that being the case, Becoming a full time artist has been a dream come true for me, yet at other times I feel like I am too vulnerable...so many eyes and ears and thoughts working there way into my little world. I am getting better though, I really am.
So when I listed this piece last night, it was huge for me....first because it's very different from my "normal" work...second because making it was a struggle, I was trying in my own humble way to create the feel of a stain glass window, well my version of one.
Anyway, long story short, I take the swan dive and list it, and now.......I find that the view counters on etsy are stuck at 1...which makes it look like no one has viewed the piece, I know that's not true as I got a couple emails about it, but still....why this piece, which was scary to list in the first place.

So yesterday was a particularly wonderful mail day...I had not been to the PO in a while so much to my surprise it was filled with love, delight and awe...In no particular order I would like to thank...
Jody- you know what fuels my soul, you also know what a horrible fashion addict I am, for that I both thank you and curse you, but most of all thank you, you're a rock star!!
Sarah- amazing woman, when I opened the box and out came all the Griffen and Sabine books, I cried, real tears like I was seeing an old friend for the first time in many years, I literally sat on the floor in the kitchen and started to go through them, but then realized I was in the way, and skuttled up the stairs to stare at them....
Tara- love you, love the "pearls", love that you remember when I tell you things, love the perfume, the nail polish...and you, mainly you for always just being Tara, which is just about as perfect as it can be. I wish we could have our own TV show, like Perfect Strangers, I would even let you be the "Balki" if you wanted to.
so that's that, must get some work done, as yesterday not much was accomplished as I took a day off, got to spend sometime with a wonderful friend in real life, Steve, and enjoy a day with my bubs.
