Lunchtime Photo Excursion

A few days ago I spent my lunch hour wandering around downtown with my camera. Here are some of the things I saw.

And in the end

There are worse things

Pre Art Fair To Do List

This was this list I wrote last week to try and keep me on track for Art Fair. At first it seemed as if I wasn’t making a lot of progress. I tend to do things like the notebooks in steps, so I didn’t cross anything off the list until last night. Here is what I have gotten accomplished so far

  • Coasters 28 sets (22 sets to go)
  • 4×6 photos 40 matted, 60 on mats waiting for backboards and bags
  • 5×7 31 matted, 10 waiting for boards and backs, 9 more need everything
  • 13 bowls, 17 needed
  • Photo Notepads, 28 ready to be punched and bound, 22 need everything
  • Library Card Notepads, all laminated and ready to be attached to the notepads.
  • Clocks DONE!!!!
  • Mirrors DONE!!!!

The one thing I haven’t started is the album notebooks yet, but that is my goal for the Saturday.  Feeling pretty confident that I can finish everything. And I might even have a chance to clean my apartment. *knock on wood*

Perfect Day

The skies were so pretty yesterday!


Playing Catch Up

Paper snail

Wow! Has it really been over a month since I posted anything? Spring flew right by me.  In a couple weeks I will be having a sleep study to try and figure out why I am so tired.  Hopefully that will lead to greater creativity.  It is difficult when the first thing I want to do when I get home is take a nap.

Besides napping I have been busy working on a photo inventory… only 5 years too late. I was amazed at how many of my photos weren’t included when I did shows.  And how many I had multiple  copies of… not just 2 copies, but 4 or 5 copies. I also had a custom coaster order which took up a week.  Now I have to catch up on coasters for Market. And bowls, notebooks and clocks. Because Art Fair is just a few weeks away. I will be at my usual spot in front of the Vault of Midnight trying not to buy all the cool stuff they carry.

I have been lucky enough to be featured in some great blogs lately. 🙂 Etsy Stalker Unofficial Etsy Feature Photo Grunt

And have worked with my friend Hope on some new designs for some of my Magnets. Here are the first 2 finished products.
