Day 365 (1096)

Wow! Made it a third year of being creative every day. Wasn't sure if I was going to continue onto to a fourth year but after a dream blast night, I've decided to continue on!
Thank you all who check out my simple pieces throughout the year. It truely means a lot to me and is one of the reasons I shall continue.  I'm going to explain the direction I'll be taking tomorrow.
Spent the day in my new year's eve ritual of cleaning and such.
Sincerely hoping 2015 brings change.  I'm tired of suppressing me in all areas of my life.  Feel like I live as a shadow. Invisible.  Numb.
Adieu 2014.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 362 (1093)

Odd day of sorts.  Woke up at 3:50 am. Though managed a quick nap before alarm went off.  In that nap decided to proceed another year in this blog.
Couldn't find newspaper, because deliverer tossed it so hard missed the steps, broke security sign and buried itself in the snow.  Etc....
Good news though jaw almost pain free!
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 342 (1073)

I'm. So. Tired. Hitting the wall yesterday ,waking up sick last night followed by massive dream overload at 20 - 30 min intervals 'till dawn... Followed by teaching.  Beat. Simply beat.
A bit of candy inspired piece.

I had planned to spend most of the day vegging out but ended up catching up on a lot of the home stuff, greeting at church, got my tree up and the last of the decorations up, four loads of laundry,etc... Peace and fabulousness.

Day 340 (1071)

Did finish this piece yesterday just didn't get it posted until this morning. Between a massage, holiday gatherings including a surprise party for my friend Randy that was wonderful. Way to go as always Jeff! Things should be a bit less hectic now. Peace and fabulousness

Day 338 (1069)

Today again feels like Friday lol. The sets are down though I decided to display them in the hallway but transporting them across an icy parking lot was a little bit more challenging. At one point I physically couldn't move because of the wind.
So glad the weekend is coming soon. And tomorrow is the first official day of art club.
Find it so interesting that the pieces I struggle the most with are ones that the people like the most and the ones I think are awesome barely get a nod.
Just gotta figure that out. Lol.
Peace and fabulous

Day 334 (1065)

Almost done with the Christmas program sets, by tomorrow it should be finished! Thank God.  Knees sound like gravel, back and shoulders like boulders.  Can't wait to have the house back to normal. Lack of sleep and appetite is getting old too.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 333 (1064)

pushed it hard again on painting the backdrop sets. I think I'm close to being at 90% done. Did get outside and enjoy some of this lovely weather. Almost ended up with some kittens. Thus today's inspired piece. Hoping to sleep tonight unlike last night with my body being so sore.  I think I need a live in masseuse. Lol.
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 332 (1063)

Today's piece is how I feel after painting backdrop sets all day. At least 98% of the canvases have paint on them. Now I just have to do another coat or two on about 35% of it. Time for a hot shower and a good night's sleep.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 329 (1060)

Ugghhhh! Today's piece says it all. Highlight: 1 awesome class and a student who came to me to help him repair something special of his that was busted. And then there was the rest of the day, which included one student trying everything from screaming, mocking me, etc to get kicked out of my room for 45 minutes.  I won.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 318 (1049)

Happy Friday. Although, if today is any indication as to how these backdrops are going to go, it is not going to be pretty. I don't know why they are not turning out as I hoped. Maybe I just need to go all Jackson Pollock on it. Peace and fabulousness.
