The View from Here

Well, I'm certainly not finding the time to post as much as I'd like to these days. With my outside work and mom work I am barely finding time to sleep. I've also been at a bit of a lull in my topic ideas, probably because my other creative endeavors are at the forefront of my thoughts. I hope you can all bare with me, I'm sure the juices will flow again soon. In the meantime I thought I'd just list the ever growing projects in my head. Most are in different stages of completion....

- Make Ky some bibs
- Finish Album cover for Matt
- Finish Winter Artful Pillows (hopefully before Spring Equinox)
- Finish "Memory Keeper" piece for 2009

Each project is listed in order of importance. I realized the other day that my bigger than average 14 month old was only being covered by a sliver of fabric in this 3-6 month bibs. Rather funny to behold really. Not to mention that he is covered in food after each meal....so I found a pattern online and have gone through my stash of fabrics and I hope to get 6 made. All I need to purchase is some bias tape. I will post some photos when they are done.
My best friend Matt is putting out his debut cd. Dave and I have been elected to make the cover art. I am gladly doing this project, even though the other day I felt that this was akin to deciding that it would be great to make my own wedding dress. The dress turned out in the end as I know the cover art will but I certainly had some melt downs in the process. Stay tuned for more info about Matt, his music and the cd. ( I smell give away! Very soon)
The challenge of course is to fit all of this in, amongst cleaning, child rearing and living.
I am going to do my best to get my posts back up to at least twice a week.
I am being paged at this very moment...mum mum...milk....duty calls

Sounds like a lot of busy fun though! And I don't know what those small bibs are for really maybe just drinking or something when they dribble. You sure can't use them for much. Good luck with making some and the cover art! Would love to see a photo as you go along.
