|i had one of those odd days that seemed really short and like i didn't do anything, but i actually did, talking on the phone most of that while. i FINALLY did some laundry and hung it up outside. i love that about summer. my mom's condo plan doesn't allow them to have clotheslines. i saw that there is a movement going on in several states to get the right to dry. it would be one thing to hang your underpants in the front yard for a week. another thing for them to be in the back on a rack or a line for a few hours until they are dry. geez. i hope never to live anywhere that gives you crap about that. next they will tell me that i can't have my giant inflatable lighted santa claus in the front yarn all year round! or the street signs telling santa which way my house is. the thing is, being jewish, i figure maybe he comes to my house on a different day. right?|
i practiced some papercutting last night, no photos, but some photos of the mess that came after one time... i did do two cuttings of the red leaf there at the bottom. no photos yet. i am actually kind of still figuring out what works well for a papercutting, and what doesn't. i am a bit slow learning in that respect. i got one of the padded martha stewart craft knifes. it is nice and has a cap. i also thought that the origami paper would cut great, people all liked it, but it is so thin, it just rips. so. i have been using all kinds of other papers. we know i have lots, right?
in other news, barbe made this amazing necklace using a few of the paper beads i had sent her. those were in the first batch and some of them were a bit cracked and beat up. now i know the secrets. or do i? anyway, i was really flattered. my heart beats fast when i see my stuff in someone's work. i think katrina used something of mine in one of her pieces, too. when clients send me photos of what they make, i get so excited. or where a softie lives, or a piece of art? so fun!
i got to talk to heather for a little while tonight. she is really sad, but she is holding it together. i don't know if she realizes how strong she is. she has been through things that would have made anyone else a mean, bitter person. instead, she is the most positive, kind, sweet person i have ever met. sometimes i think that people don't tell their friends, family, lovers how much they think of them. how amazing they are. what they love about them. people need to know. we assume that they do, and even if that is true, everyone loves to be told. so, as corny as it sounds...tell someone how you feel about em, or what you love about em, go on...do it.
love you guys...because you just have great taste in blogreading. and you smell nice, too.
