i would like to place the entire blame on the show hoarders. i don't have tv, but i found this show on hulu and i watched all 5 episodes yesterday. i don't know if it is possible to watch this show without becoming obsessive about cleaning your own house. so i watched, and cleaned.
then today i got my acceptance letter from the upcoming art show, and with it my assigned location. now i am freaking out a bit. i have 3 weeks before the show and i need to get in high production mode. but wait, i have to go to pta meetings, and take care of my family, and walk kids to the library, and my son gets baptised this weekend, and craft fairs i was planning on attending, and first grade spelling words to practice, and and and. mini panic attack.
so tonight is going to be the first in a series of featured artist posts. now, don't gag, but today's featured artist is my daughter.
this is one of her paintings from last year. lovely, no?
and here is a collaboration that we did:
at the age of 2 she drew a remarkable set of scribbles. i took those scribbles and made a silk screen, then printed and dyed my own fabric, then sewed this dress. she then modeled the dress. we make a great team.
no promises for tomorrow. i am still horrified by hoarders images and need to do some more housework. i may post tomorrow, i may wait a day and wow you with my productivity. oh, the suspense.
let's go to sleep.
