i hope you guys are okay with my randomness lately. my brain is so full of random these last many weeks, it seems i do best with down and dirty lists. around here lately:
*i’ve been in heavy heavy research mode over here in many areas: art. opportunities. books. ecourses. products. agents. travel. teaching. i’ve been signing up for a few ecourses, reading books, perusing info on various websites, googling up the wazoo, and on and on. i seriously can’t believe how amped up my brain is these days – reminds me of the fall of 2006 when i was doing similar research to get my biz up and running. i’m right back there again but in a new sort of way. it’s energizing, exciting, and super super full.
*working hard on getting the first on-line class together. i think you are going to love it! i’ll start taking sign ups and post more information in early 2010.
*went to joyworks
a couple of weeks ago and loved how they displayed the collection of products in their front window christmas display – they did such an amazing job (thank you so much)! while i was there, one of the sweetest ladies gave me the largest heart rock i’ve ever seen. i ate, mingled, did a little bit of signing, and a ton of shopping. i was so inspired by their many many christmas displays that i bought a few ornaments and a few vintage inspired decorative trees. looovvve.
*booking travel. lots of travel for 2010.
*was totally sad to hear oprah’s news. i’ve watched her since i was 12 years old…
*bought three little vintage oil can assemblage photo holders from my sister’s shop
and these seriously amazing earrings
. i’ve also been on a major hunt for vintage wallpaper over on etsy.
*went to see the blind side movie and i really enjoyed it (and yep, i cried). haven’t seen new moon yet. waiting for the crowds to die down a bit but i’m all over that movie soon.
*john made me pinky swear to make more of an effort to keep the house clean. i’ve turned into a horrible roommate lately, but i’m recommitted now that it’s all cozy and clean again (thanks to my man).
*been living in this cozy long sweater thingamajig i bought recently. it’s like a blankie. and i wear it everyday. i believe andrea
recently posted a link to it on her blog (there are 4 of us who own this thing!). this is me looking very tired inside an anthro dressing room but i’m soooo happy to be cozy and warm. the weather here has been so pitiful these last many weeks….but spirits are good:) and i’m very much looking forward to turkey and food and rest on thursday!
ps-there are exactly 14 signed 2010 datebooks
left in my shop. after they’re gone, you can still get them over on the brush dance
