Flora & Fauna.....and taxes

Monday, April 18, 2011

Ok, well, the calendar says it's spring but to look outside it says otherwise. I've even had to drag the space heater into my art room to stop the chattering of my teeth.
  

I had a wonderful time on Hilton Head with my mother, we lazed on the beach, rode bikes and shopped - does it get any better than that I ask?!? While I was there I managed to start on a few larger sketch/drawing books for my shop (which is starting to look much better!) I just loved the fabrics and knew they'd go well on some journals.

To the left is another on I just listed I call it "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" and have 3 more done to add too! Woo hoo - I am on a roll!  


I just ordered a banner for my booth to use in craft shows, it's really kind of hard since I am not in the sign making business and I can't be sure as to how it will turn out....we'll see when it comes in I suppose (either way it will be used because I am not raking out another $30 for a new one)! 


Sooooooooo, I guess I've procrastinated on mailing my taxes long enough, I mean it is April 18th after all. Amazing that Tom and I had one of the toughest years ever in 2010 with both of us being unemployed for 8 months and I still have to write a check - Aiiiiiiiiiii!!
I think it's a Grateful Dead moment for me, I'll need the 10 minutes to warm up my pen and checkbook ;o)

Glad you had a good time in my state, too bad you were on the other end of it!
