I was surprised when I packed all the work into the vehicle that I had this much to offer the museum for this show. It worried me a lot, I didn't think I had very many pieces to resent a single artist show.
Plus I didn't finish the couple of dramatic pieces in time for this show, I am disappointed with myself for not making the time to finish them.
Maybe they might want me to show again in a couple of years.
I will be 3 days behind in the soul journal now... :(
I have kept up really well considering I start these things and get sidetracked.
I will definitely go down the list when I get back though and check every ones progress.. :-)
So off to Aberdeen to the Dachota Prairie Museum I go....
//// (waving atcha)
It is Wednesday morning and I just peeked at Sarah's blog and she posted the list for pg 3/4 that I took my notes for but, a point I picked up she made, is not being influenced from seeing other work...to make it for sure my own I won't peek at the pages from the participants on her list until I post my spreads
and that will be later than everyone
since I am already 2 days behind...tomorrow will make 4...
being away from the studio is saddening...
but I can ponder and prepare for how I will go about creating the spreads when I get back...

Thank you to EVERYONE!
I plan to get a picture of me up before we move onto the next spread :-)
I usually respond to each person who comments...but I might have missed one so, IF I didn't make a response please forgive my slack in netiquette...for it truly was not intentional.
I have greatly enjoyed meeting everyone involved in our SJ project...this has been the best perk in our venture.
So until we blog again...

The doggies wanted you to recognize them WOOF
the top window is where I keep my office..hence the computer (the life line)
the numbers are 2 for craig and me, 3 for when craig JR and myself moved from VA to SD...6 is JRS brood, then 8 for the total of my immediate clan.
The trees are very few in SD...mostly they exist only if planted. We have planted over 10,000 trees since we moved here in 1998.
Read from the bottom up.
I am catching up with the SJ group.
We are customizing the next 2 pages, I think we are on page 7-8, day 11 or it might be 12. Anyhow, we are working on our safe environment.
Home is my safe environment.
I have had several homes and each one feels safe for me.
I am happy wherever I call home so one place will be as good as the other.
I chose my current place.
We live in the barn made over into living quarters.
The silos are my neighbors...so they represent the neighborhood.
I named everything with my decoration, which I used the telephone book pages and they are the lines of the buildings...(the bones).
We have awesome sunrises and sets around here...they tend to have an orangey glow to them.
We grow and harvest grass for seed and hay.
The colors i have started represent the sky and the grass.
Silos are metal and welded together in sheets...so the mosaic represents the construction for them.
Welcome everyone...to my home.

Connie that didn't work so well for me...I wrote out my addition to the edit on the last journal post and added my picture
only the picture went to the top and didn't stay with the post.
I couldn't even get it to delete...i am computer challenged... :-(
I DID get pg 5-6 done.. yea (i am on the same page with our challenge group now!)
I am not sure what we are doing with the tape but we all get to find out tomorrow...
it is such a pretty picture we can see it 2 times
In the meantime go to Connies Blog THE ALTERED ROUTE well worth the trip!

I am catching on.
I have sign ups also for a journal making class, a bead making class, an intro to stained glass (they make a sun catcher in a day), and a metal clay class.
Busy month with 3 shows and I need to take the solo show up to the Dakota Prairie Museum.
Busy is good..
