Am I ready for this?


so this morning I wake up a little groggier than I should be, you see last night I was so exhausted after partying liek and Olsen Twin the night before, but....................I decided (cough..had to...cough) stay up late to watch the Red Sox last night.

so morning came a little early for me, and now here I am behind the gun on everything. You see I spent yesterday working on commission work, and getting research ready for a couple more cutom pieces...yes, I do research.

I am a dork like yesterday a lot of the day was spent getting back in touch with my inner Desdemona and floating around in my head in the world of Othello...

Oh I love it, this...THIS is why doing what I do is the best thing in the world.

The next two custom projects are going to be done next week as today needs to be spent packaging things (hopefully the rain will stop for the first time this week so I can get to the post office) and then preparing the house for the mean cheese invasion.

yes, the mean cheese is coming, the mean cheese is coming.... my shop I have been holding steady at 1498 sales for the past 18 hours or so....and frankly the anticipation of hitting 1500 is all but driven me batty I tell you. I feel like somehting HUGE is going to happen when I hit 1500, like the ceiling will give way and I will have confetti and balloons raining down on me.

chances are...something huge will happen, but it will be far more exciting to the person who is #1500 than for me....think big people, this is a huge milestone....what kind of goody package will the lucky person get???

It will be amazing, trust me on this...original art (perhaps 2 pieces...a diptych!!) Some art cards, a mirror, a ring...

and more than anything else, my love and gratitude.

I know....amazing huh???

with that I will leave you, must package, must clean, must get a mad dash of creating done before the cheese gets here.

(photos today are from a brand new altered mixed media book I have in my shop, called "The Castle Maiden's Song)

PS- HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEIRD AARON!!!!!!!!!!! I miss you!!!!!
