Thomas, the cat, got hold of one of my dried pomegrantes and apparently some wool fleece. I found THIS creation at the bottom of the staircase busted open, gaping at me with all sorts of possibilities. It's these sorts of happy accidents that make, my artistic life interesting.
It snowed, it's cold and slippery out, and we are down to one vehicle which John has at the moment so this weeks artist date was spent finding a cool container, in the house, to put my crayons in, and time spent coloring because... well I can! Mindless fun at it's finest.
John and Thomas hanging out watching tv. My uncle Gary, my dad's youngest sister's husband, passed away tonight at the young age of 56, the same age my mom was when she passed away in 2005. He's one year younger than John, deaths of loved ones sure make you take a second look at what is the most precious in life, all else is just fluff or unnecessary stress.
From the road! I finally remembered to take a photo from the road today, I'm not getting out as much as I used to since I no longer have a vehicle. This was taken at the Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge, they were doing a prairie burn today, near Prairie City, Iowa.
In August John asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I told him a desk organizer for my pens, copic markers, gel pens, etc. Well being married to a woodworker is a lot like being married to a cobbler, family always comes last, customers come first! Any bets on how soon I'll get my christmas present???
My plan is to clear coat the inside with some polyurethane and paint the outside, I just haven't decided on which colors yet.
If you are interested in purchasing an organizer please send me and email and I'll shoot you an PayPal invoice, please allow three weeks for delivery.
Emptied and ready for the shelves to be removed so that I can paint the bead board back a very lovely shade of fern green. John has some repair work to do to the shelves, I'm hoping to be able to load it up come Monday or Tuesday. Until then...
I have a ton of stuff on both my work table and my drafting/drawing tables! Working on some storage solutions, for all of the ink I seem to own, for the hutch.
