Cat Creations

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.

Tomato Hutch 012812

The shelves are a tomato red color, the back a tomato vine green, and the sides a tomato blossom yellowish color, so with that in mind I'm calling this my tomato hutch!

Artist Date

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.

Studio Redux 012012

the top portion needs to be finished, the edge of the top shelf needs to be painted black, and then we are ready to put the shelves back into the unit.

It's the Precious Things in Life

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.

Pen Organizer

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.

Studio Update 010512

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.
