Some days things just settle into a routine. That is how it has been here the past few days. We get up, have breakfast and then John goes down to his workshop and putters with his projects. In the meantime I go upstairs, check the computer for orders, package them and run off to the post office to mail them. By this time it is lunch time or later. After lunch we take care of any errands or household chores and then maybe I have an hour or two to putter in my art room or in Small Studio's room. It is just a nice routine but I am not playing enough and you know that if we don't play with our tools we become rusty and awkward.
We are enjoying our days very much but I fear that I am letting precious time slip through my fingers. Plus I have nothing to blog about that might be interesting. This afternoon we went to watch the 10 year olds play basketball. Our team won. I took my camera but forgot to take pictures.
John just started playing with wood and power tools a few months ago and he is having a ball down in his man room making wood stuff. Here is something he has started for his daughter.
I have been working with my daughter/webgirl on the schedule for the Small Studio Workshops. It should be live in a few days. And I have been trying to get ahead with my booth product packaging for the upcoming Artiscape here in OH (Columbus) in April. We will also have a booth at Stampaway (Cincinnati) in August and we will have a mini booth at each workshop. So I need to get ahead on packaging and amassing goodies that may appeal to each workshop and show. You know, metal and rusty stuff for Michael deMeng, Keith Lobue, Tracy Moore and Linda and Opie O'Brien. Then I need collage stuff for Teesha Moore, Lynne Perrella, Pam Sussman and Ingrid Dijjkers. Plus we need cool stuff for all seven weekends. I have a good start thanks to all the vintage shopping John and I have been doing. It is fun, but I never know how much is enough, too much or too little.
So that is what I have been doing. What have you been up to?
