Not-so-daily bits and pieces about my art, stuff for sale, and every day epiphanies

8 wheels, 2 feet. February 21, 2008

Tuesday night the school had a skate night at a local skating rink. Now, back in ‘the day’ (let’s say, ohhhhh, 20 years ago), I was one of the kids you saw racing around the middle, skating backwards around the others, dancing WHILE skating. Those days? Gone. I could barely stay on two feet for the first few rounds! A couple of laps later, I was getting back into it, more comfortable, and my shins had stopped burning. Then BAM! Hello hard floor and totally skinned knee under jeans. Ow. I made a few rounds with Lili, Colby and his friend Ricky were passing us every once in a while, and we had fun 🙂

Yesterday, the boy was home sick. Yay for being back at school! Next week, I’m scheduled to go in to Lili’s class because I’m her V.I.P. 😀 Cool! The teacher emailed me and said it was today, and I panicked- but we got that straight.. whew! She said to talk to the kids about my jewelry (they get to ‘interview’ me), and I said I’d bring in some of my more durable items 🙂

I finished another painting, this one’s my favorite so far! 😀 I’ve listed it on Etsy !

La Catrina’s Margarita

I’ve got beads, too, but they’ll be up tomorrow 🙂 Today I don’t feel like doing much of anything, it’s a very cold blah day, and I feel like I need a day off. Winter depression is dragging me down here at the end of the season, and I can’t get motivated for much of anything. Bah! 🙂

I’ll be back tomorrow to post bead pictures!
