|i had my doctor appointment today and i am proud to say that i got up at 8:30a and got myself showered and made up and dressed. i am so so bad in the morning. it takes me hours to feel human usually. it is a source of guilt for me that i don't do more earlier in the day, but when i tried to get up earlier, i found that i was totally wrecked and done for the day by earlier afternoon. i did get really tired early on and didn't really do anything. it was actually tiring to check emails and i had to relax for a little while before returning phone calls. gah! i got a sneak attack migraine tonite. it didn't surprise me that much because i did get so exhausted and chilled and sort of lost time, which is the strangest feeling. i was trying to watch lost and didn't think i was sleeping, but i completely missed it. i took a shower because all of a sudden my nose was all stuffed up and my sinuses hurt and when i got back out, i fell asleep. now, it is 12:45a and i hope i am not up all night, but too tired to do anything. and the migraine is coming back, so i best be quick here. the crazy thing is that compared to the episodes i have of feeling all crazy and creepy crawly, i prefer a migraine. at least i can take something that just knocks me out with amigraine. the other thing, i don't even know what it is or what to do for it because nothing helps. at all.|
i entered the plushyou8 show and i am still waiting to hear back. i am in the valentine's day artstream studios show, which is a good start. i just really need to apply for more shows. i am really trying to incorporate fiber into my mixed media pieces. i have been really excited about the circle pieces lately and seeing how they evolve.
what else? i finally organized the buttons that i made and took photos. i measured them and wrote down the sizes on the cards i sewed them onto, grouped them so that people could see which ones had matching ones, etc. the buttons were so incredibly labor intensive and i am very tempted to get back into the clay studio to do some buttons there. the buttons i do are finished on both sides and i guess that isn't really necessary and doing only one side would be much faster and much easier because when you do both sides and are using a heat gun there are lots of issues that arise. wanna see some photos? i will be listing these over the weekend. if you want something, drop me a note and i will hang onto it for ya. i have no idea if they will do really well or not. i have had wonderful feedback and i don't think there is anything like these that i have seen, so i think it will. the photos don't do these buttons justice.
also, i have been getting some really fun striping yarns for hat and purse kits. i am also doing custom orders, so do feel free to ask if you want something. they are so fun to work with. i made a sample with a yarn that has a bunch of different wools, locks and sections of cotton and i just love spinning it and it is so smooth and soft. it makes the squishiest coils. ah, lub. lub, lub, lub.
