Oct. 7,2012 has been a busy few weeks! No time to even check out all the blogs I follow! Much less write something. My Open studio was ok. Didn't sell as much as the last time unfortunately but I had very little new work so I get it. My son, Shane and his crew made it to Oregon this past Thursday after many mishaps and setbacks before getting on the road!!! I felt like Pollyanna or the cheerleader at times as they got discouraged by things beyond their control happened. But nothing like moving 5 people, 2 dogs, and a house full of stuff in 2 weeks! Now the hope is that they find new jobs soon and a house to rent. They are camping on relatives acreage right now! I also at the same time was moving from my studio at Poor Yorick back home. That of course involved moving things from one room to the basement, and art stuff to that room and sewing stuff that did not sell to another room!!! Besides trips with the Pathfinder filled to the brim with art stuff. Finally on Sunday last week, I had my Pathfinder back and Hubby and I moved the last of the art and tables home. I decided to have him saw up the big paintings on wood...very old ones..and I put most of that in the dumpster. Kept out bits of my favorites. Then on Monday a fellow artist retrieved my parts of paintings from the dumpster, emailed me and wanted to know if I meant for them to be thrown. If so could he use them ? I was happy he thought he wanted them...I am looking forward to see what he does with them!! It took me another 2 days to go through my art supplies and set up my studio in the old kitchen room. More things to in hooking up the laundry sink so I can make messes. Hubby might build a all with a sliding door so I can keep the kitties out. Then I went with my friend Anita to the Red Lotus Festival Friday night at the Salt Lake City Tibetan Buddhist temple. That was awesome!!! I was going to take the train back to Ohio to visit my family but the tickets got too expensive and I will now fly with Southwest..cheaper. Not as much fun. But I will take the train another time when I can afford to get the tickets. Posting pics of D5 studio as it was set up for Open studio, and a bit from the Lotus fest. This has been the first weekend in a long time I could relax...


  1. Les aléas de la vie font que parfois nous ne parvenons pas à dominer le temps qui s'écoule.
    J'attends hâtivement le moment de pouvoir admirer vos prochaines oeuvres.
    Gros bisous à vous et beaucoup de courage à vos enfants.

  2. Hi Kay,

    Thanks for your comment on my blog.

    Sounds like you are busy, busy, busy, as I am too. No time to visit blogs or anything else these days.

    I hope your son and his family get settled in soon, in a nice cozy house and a good job. So many people are going without the basics of life these days. Hopefully, it will improve soon.

  3. You have been busy! Hope you have a relaxing weekend!
