the count down is on…
hello dear friends… my heart did a little thumpity thump yesterday when i was looking at my calendar. exactly one week from today i will be hanging my show.
now how did time go by so fast?
i am more than excited. i am ecstatic. going crazy. running around painting and stitching and making a huge mess.
if you were to look into my studio you would think a tornado had blown through it.
i am neglecting everything else including this blog. sorry friends but you gotta do what you gotta do.
i am trying desperately not to freak out and take care of myself. it really didn’t hit home until today that it really was so close. it has always seemed so far away.
on top of that, the new sewing machine that my mom gave me (which by the way does amazing things) is not working currently. so all the stitching i have to add to cards and paintings is being put on hold. i am hoping my mom can help with that one soon.
so dear ones, if you don’t see me around in the next week or so, know where i am. slaving away on paintings and cards and all such beauty that goes into a show. i will be relieved when it is friday, august 5 and there is nothing left to do but breathe it all in and enjoy everything about the experience. which i plan on doing to the fullest. your first real solo art show only comes around once. and it has all fallen into place so magically.
p.s. can i just say my little girl starts kindergarten next week? crazy!!! she is beyond ready. it will just be hard on me the crazy parent. i always think back on my days on teaching kindergarten and really just think i had absolutely no idea the difficulty for parents letting go of their kids for three hours a day to a complete stranger. yes i am one of those. so think of me next tuesday while i am crying watching the independence of my more than competent five year old. then pray for me as i spend the whole afternoon with my four year old.
p.s.s. thank god that my four year old still takes naps in the afternoon.
