Finding Time

Wow, it's been quite a while since I've done anything on this blog. This reminds me of the old Simon and Garfunkel song, "Hazy Shade of Winter," to quote, "Time, time, time what's become of me...." Family has taken quite of bit of time, but that's a given in my life. I feel as if I'm spinning my wheels and going nowhere! I have much to do and very little time to do it, so what am doing on this blog complaining about my worries and woes?!!!

Time to get my butt into that studio and work, work, work till my eyeballs fall out of my head. OK, that's a bit graphic, but I really need to get going here and start working again. I also have to plan a family party for my two sons this coming weekend. My oldest, Joel, turn 32 (oiy vey) and my baby, 23 today! My daughter turned 30 the 15th, so she'll be celebrated in abstencia!! Yep, all 3 of my babies have September birthdays. So you don't have to count back, December was my fertile month!! haha!! I guess I was so busy preparing for the holidays and enjoying the holidays, I just didn't pay any attention. When they were younger, it was a very trying month. Alberston's bakering looked forward to my visits in September....I was even on their calander...LOL!

Well, need to get off here and start on some Dia de Los Muertos projects.....love this time of year!!

Going to get to work

Lock Box Bob just reminded me it's Monday!! How dare he since I was feeling great...oh well. Today I want to get back into my studio and start working on my Halloween doll for an exchange, sketch more ideas for my icon doll challenge, finish up my Kitchen Witches my friend ordered for her store, fix my mariottete for the class I'll be teaching in a few weeks at ourlocal art museum (my 4 year old grandson got a hold of her and broke the strings...ahhhh).

Sounds over whelming doesn't it? Ok, cant' do it all today, but have to start sometime and today is it. I've been quite busy the last couple of months which has prevented me from doing my work and I so miss it. Well enough jibber jabber....have to get ready, take Mom to the grocery store, put away her groceries then back to my studio....whew! I'm pumped!!!

Sweet Sunday

I've upgraded my blog and trying to stay current with my posts. I spent 2 days figuring out how to add my playlist to the blog....what a hassle. Thankfully, I read the question and answer page on the playlist blog and found the answer....still, what a hassle. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the selection I've chosen and if not, just adjust your volume button on your speakers.

I've also added a picture of my "Llorona" that was made with paper mache and fabric. Luckily, I live on the TX/Mexico border(well, sort of lucky...the drug lords have wreaked havoc on Cd. Juarez across the Rio Grande and tourism is at it's lowest....duh!), so I have access to all kinds of really unusual embellishments thanks to my mother's cleaning lady who brings me all kinds of wonderful things. I like working in paper mache, paper clay, fabric, metal, beads, etc, etc., etc. I will be posting more of my mixed media work and if anyone is interested in purchasing any of my macabre creations, just drop me a line.

Anyway, back to sweet Sunday, my husband made wonderful Machaca burritos. We had fajitas last night and had plenty of flank steak left over, so he treated us to a great brunch. I made a fruit salad and I'm still full!!!

I hope all had a great weekend and looking forward to another week of fun in the art world. Thanks for tuning in and I'll be back.
