dust scuppers plans

Don't you just hate it when you have a free day to craft & create and then the sun comes out and reveals that actually, dusting is probably more essential right now? :o(

Hi Yve,

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a very nice little message. I've been horrible about blogging and I really should drop in now and again, but Facebook has become more of a catch-up and post thing for me and I like that "short-quick and to-the-point" sort of structure.

But just a little on what's happening here in far West Texas, I had the surgery in late June and the recovery has gone well, however, yesterday I went out with friends for lunch and some much-needed and deserved shopping and I was walking quite slowly after my little afternoon venture, so I'm not anywhere near 100%...said it could take up to 6 months or longer....oey vey!!

Am doing some studio work when my back allows. I have a commission from the museum of art and this is the first time I've ever done anything this large. The patron requested one of my Dia de los Muertos bride and groom, but in a 20"x10" box. Thankfully, my friend that lives up the road in Las Cruces, New Mexico, has this wonderful woodworker who created these lovely wooden boxes with frames. I ordered 3 of them so I can have a couple for my own to sell. It's been a bit challenging and at times, daunting, but actually, I'm having the time of my life...needed that little boost of adrenaline to get my creativity going.

Well, I have many miles to go this morning and hope to come home and either read or go into the studio...depends how much my back can take today. Have a great weekend and again, thank you so much for your sweet message.

Abrazos, (hugs)

I'm so glad to hear you are getting better Georgina, big hugs. So nice that your work is going to be in a museum too! How cool is that? Well, as someone who has had my fair share of enforced "Back rest" days, take it easy but keep moving too, and of course, keep creative… sounds as though you are definitely doing all of that! Hugs again from wet Wales :o)

Oh... but won't the dust still be there tomorrow, too? What freaks me out the most is trash, creeping over the side of the bin onto the floor. That's the most urgent cleaning ritual for me. Or dishes. Those can be urgent. And the never-ending laundry. My washer and dryer sing happy little tunes when finished with their cycles--they nag me out of creativity and back into the daily routine I'm so bad at, apparently! :)

Tee hee, we were both meant to be super rich with servants to do these odious tasks so we can get on with the serious business of playing with dolls ;o)

Plus, you know Quentin Crisp claimed that dust never gets any worse after the 3rd year! Something to bear in mind...
