Can You See Me?

Can you see me Sweetie?
I'm here....

My poor sweet Justice is 14 and 
deaf and blind.
But she keeps on truckin'.
Wish I were as brave.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

This is another "get 'er done" post
This chair in my studio gets a lot of use.
Both sides looked like the left one 
before I thought to snap a pic.
Around 11 pm last night I decided I had put off fixing
these arms long enough, as in YEARS. I knew it was a quick fix
and I was tooling right along, covering the damaged
"PLEATHER", and glued it all back together....
 until I hit the last of four bolts
holding the arms on..
Over 30 minute later and many, many, many, 
curse words later, I went to bed.
Tried again today and poof, went right together.

I was feeling pretty smug and pleased
 until I tried to download pics into new "photos"
on my new Mac.
Dropbox kicked up a mighty storm for some 
freaking unknown reason and 2 hours later
on the phone with Apple Care my brain exploded.
Can we all agree we 50+ somethings 
have a steeper learning curve with techno crap?

Just sent out my first class announcement
for September.
 It's been 2 years since my last class, so
we'll see how it goes.
I keep forcing myself to face
new challenges, and deal with dignity
when life disappoints.
It's all a journey and I am NOT 
in first class seating, ha!

Spending hours in the studio:
Preparing for classes,
listening to playlists as my mood changes,
pondering life's condition
and hibernating.

oh yeah
it's hot

It Started With An Unsold Cabinet -WBC 2015

When my friend Ronda and I closed our little space in 
Boulder City, I had a leftover cabinet that did not sell.
I parked it in the garage and there it sat for a few months.

I had a painting project that I worked on out there
and in the process I used the cabinet to hold supplies.
The lightbulb flickered and

A garage studio was born!

 A few years back I held a class out here,
 and draped some of the walls
 and ceiling with tulle and canvas to hide all
the storage and unpainted walls.
Gosh girls do you remember 
how much fun that day was?


Normally I held classes running 
down the center of my living room,
and that worked too.


I have not taught classes for several years now 
since I had the canvas, the space and the time,
I figured go for it.

Determined to set it up
with no expense,
I began a couple weeks ago.
