arts, crafts, photography, and joy


I’ve been slacking off as an artist lately and need to get back on track. The problem is work, which will be ending soon, but not soon enough. I have a hard time dragging myself into the job each morning, let alone getting anything else done. The whole scene of watching a company lay everyone off is really, really depressing. Not that I’m depressed for myself, except I wish they would can me sooner. I could use a camping vacation with the boys before they go back to school.

So long story short, I’ve been avoiding the art. It’s sitting all lonely in the basement and wondering what it did wrong. I hope it doesn’t divorce me before I can get out of this job ending funk.

On the upside I am sewing a sweet pig for a first birthday out of an old wool sweater. I still rock a little bit.
