So. You know I joined a group , a challenge called 500wordsaday which I have been posting here as well. It's been something I liked for the most part. Today, something changed for me and today I decided not to post there any more.
However I'm driven to COMPLETE my challenge. LOL. I don't like negativity and I don't want to speak poorly of people I have never met in real life...but honestly, I started to feel like it wasn't good for me. Also there are 160plus members in the group but only a handful post every day.
So I don't have any idea if anyone (except for David- THANK you David) reads these regularly...but I'm still gonna write.
Yesterday my old friend Shelley came by and we laughed and talked and ate and she took some pix of barnwords!! She is a photographer, at least in my eyes, and it was great to see her. Isn't is funny how some things never change? We used to laugh so hard at our place of employment that I seriously had stomach aches many days... I've been in a total barnwords -slump lately. Not really finishing anything I don't have to. Some days not even painting. I know it comes and goes...but Winter is my time to work! I NEED to get back on track. Hoping her enthusiasm for my work ignites the spark I need.
Today it is so gray and dismal though... and rainy. ( I'd rather have snow at this time of year)
I started reading a book of short stories last night and I fell asleep. Many of my friends tell me they fall asleep while reading, but I normally have the opposite problem. Reading usually keeps me awake. It felt weird to fall asleep reading..waking a few minutes later (how many?) with the light blaring and my arm asleep...It made me feel weird. Maybe it was that homemade marshmallow covered in caramel and chocolate that I ate last night . Man oh man, was it great.
Another old friend and I are collabarating together on a show called recraft and relic. It is in April. We plan to sell what we make, but also some old stuff we have (which is the relic part). I'm super excited and a tiny bit nervous to see what that is like, I am pretty new to art/ fair type events, as a vendor anyway. Its a bigger show and booth space was expensive (to me) so I hope to do well.
So tomorrow, I plan on working all day on signs. I'll let ya know how that goes. ;) x
P.S. Im learning how to add pix. that aren't mine. Bear with me.( That always looks wrong, 'bear' but it isn't. ) XX
