And I have to share this...

This little boy always has to stick his bottom up in the air while he sleeps!!Don't know why but it's funny!

Angel Baby

I don't know what it is but after 18 months of having this little boy around I still can sit and watch him sleep! How blessed I am.

It's a Sad Day When this can Happen at Lucy's

I worked for Michael for about a year and a half about 12 years ago. This story breaks my heart because I know how hard both Michael and Marika work every single day. I hope they'll be able to work something out because their pastries truly are a gift to and treasure for our community!

Michael Feigenbaum, owner of Lucy's Sweet Surrender on Buckeye Road, is thinking about moving after his wife was shot in a robbery. He says he is tired of waiting for the neighborhood to live up to its restoration potential.

Sunrise in Cleveland

The one down side to living in the city is all the wires and clutter that exists in your view of the world! That said, I had to take a photo of the sunrise this morning, I noticed after I took this that the clutter exists, in my eye, I ignore it!That's probably why I became an artist!:o) It's still pretty

It is FRIGID! With the wind chill this morning it is -31. Without the windchill it was -12. WTH!!!
I love winter and I don't mind cold but this is ridiculous!! I haven't left the house for days. Well unless you consider taking the dog out for her daily constitutional a few times a day, but there's no dilly dallying around, it's out, do your business, back in! Speaking of Dharma was a drama queen this morning, she did her business but on the way back to the house she started limping. Now, don't worry we were out there for less than 3 minutes, but her little paws must have numbed up. We got back in the house and within a minute she was back to her old self. I must admit though(and I'm saying this because I know she is okay) it was humorous! But I'm sad today because we've got great snow but we can't go out and play in it. It figures, the first playable snow of the season and we are stuck inside!!

The boy experienced snow first hand for the first time yesterday. All the other pictures are from today, I love the snow chapeau on the light!

So Close!

Still plugging away, I need to organize tax info so I probably will wait on fine tuning until that's altogether but at least now I can work in my own space and have the little one join me!

We're Getting There!

There is actually space on my work table to WORK! Shocking!! It needs fine tuning but the bulk of the work is done. Next photo should be the fully organized space, decor will be a while but I shooting for organization at this point!

My Horoscope!

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Tuesday, Jan 6th, 2009 -- Solid progress can be yours today as long as you don't try to get too much accomplished too quickly. Working faster can introduce problems that will come back later and haunt you. Even if others are in a hurry, take your time and do things right from the start. Laying a solid foundation is more crucial now than finishing the entire job.

[sounds like the story of my life! Off I go to work on the studio anyway!]

more progress

although it may not look like it, I've made some progress. All of my recycled materials have been sorted and categorized so now I just need work on my supplies and how I want things organized and I should be good to go! Note the pile on the table is getting lower!

bit by bit

More progress made on the daunting task of organizing and overhauling the studio. I only have minutes usually to get things done because of the wee tot so any forward momentum I can get, I'm happy with. Here are more photos of today's progress, note how the room seems to be getting LARGER!!Fascinating!:o)

Studio Imploded!

This was the most current photo of the studio, but it doesn't look like this now. All of the black cd holders on the right hand side had fallen over and they now have a new home next to the armoire. Note: the floor is visible! You can actually walk into the room.

This picture was taken after my studio imploded! Actually, I was trying to move my drawing table to where I could fix it when it fell apart, I was so frustrated I left it in the middle of the room and started breaking down boxes that I use for constructing the initial form for my papier mache sculptures. It only looked like this for about 15 minutes but when I looked at the monstrosity I had to take a photo!
