recent thoughts

Good morning,

When I woke up yesterday morning [day after election day] my mind was swirling with thoughts. I had so many thoughts of hope, and excitement, and looking forward and things I wanted to share but hadn't the time. And then I taught all day long and when I finally got home last night all I wanted to do was eat soup and watch tv. I was just too tired. And today is my studio day, I always wake up giddy on my studio days. And recent events only add to that for me.

On Tuesday when I walked downtown to the post office [and picked up my free Starbucks along the way for voting] my copy of PEER was waiting for me! Renee did a wonderful job putting it all together. I really like the size and thickness of the paper. It is so interesting to see fellow artists work and hold it in my hands. I am looking forward to adding color to their beautiful images. It seemed like just the right day for it to arrive.

Speaking of coloring, I don't know when I've ever concentrated so hard on coloring in a bubble or within the lines as on Tuesday. I looked and looked at my choices and made sure I filled in the bubbles on the ballot as best I could.
Yes. It is finished. We're ready to move on and forward. Right?

Tomorrow I hope to share some studio news about art card subscriptions and letterpress with you.

Thank you Diana, for your sweet post today. She has some wonderful modern handbags in her shop you will like to see.
And thank you Alicia for mentioning my sequin hearts yesterday! :)

off to work for me!
