. . . hearing the doorbell ring, and hearing the engine of the UPS truck pull away as you open the door and find it sitting there . . . waiting. A brown box. Some can be little. Some can be big. Just depends on the goodies you're expecting. Whatever it is, knowing that the box is from Blick, it's just about all that matters.
Nothing is wonderful as that.
The box I received this week contained some new palette paper, a whole set of Mod Podge (matte, sparkle, glossy, outdoors and paper varieties), 50 small 4x4 canvas boards, and 25 assorted paper mache boxes.
Yes . . . these. What, pray tell, am I going to do with 25 assorted paper mache boxes? Oh, wouldn't YOU like to know?!? ;) Oh, I've got some ideas . . . some visions . . . some wheels that are turning. You're going to have to hang in there to see.
So, I'm getting busy in my studio, again. I've signed up for another craft fair on November 10th, and I have lots to do to prepare for it. In addition, Katie has signed up for Girl Scouts, PG is only home 11 days this month, Ella is still in art class (and just lost her front tooth!), and I am still working that consulting job for my old employer.
The days . . . they could not be more jam packed than they are right now.
And while I'm so grateful for all of it . . . I sure do look forward to it slowing down a little. Like, in 2036 (I think that is when I am able to retire. Maybe.)
So for now, just a peek at my recent UPS shipment. Have lots more to share . . . so I'll be back soon. Until then . . . how are all of you?
