Random Tuesday....Again?


Another sheet of handmade paper dried and in my studio!  I am running out of room!  I told Dr. John that I need a bigger studio.  He just sighed!!  Guess that means, no! 

Grandkids are here and we are having a blast.  Lee Jr. is attending theater camp and Georgia is helping me with my fiber sculpture.  I will be taking be prepared.   We are also going to do a baseball game (local team...the Isotopes).  And we will be going to see Cirque Du Soleil!!  They asked me if there will be clowns...they are afraid of clowns!  Go figure!  With all the elaborate costumes and make up, we may be in for a traumatizing evening!!!  Oh dear!

So far I have planted some lily's and some decorative grasses and the black gopher has not shown his ugly ittle head yet.  Whew!  I also have not planted our Topsy Turvy Tomato plants yet.  Will be doing that this week...we just ran out of time.

I have all these cool pictures of my grandkids on my phone, right?  And I hook it up to the computer to download them so I could share with all of you, right?  Then why won't it let me download my pics?  It used too!  Now it allows the first screen to come up and then it shuts itself down.  No download!!!???  Any suggestions?  They are really great pics.

Georgia stuffed those sculptural tubes for me yesterday and we had stuffing everywhere.  Couch, living room floor, her pants...even her hair!!  But she was a great sport about it!  And just laughed.  Took about an hour to clean it all up.  I told you I ran out of space in my studio!  I am now using the living room too.  So I can't leave anything out.  Everything needs to be cleaned up and put away or it makes for a miserable evening for all of us.  I really need a bigger studio!!

Soon with pics!!!  Have a magical and blessed day!
Hugging you

It does sound like you need a bigger studio! Maybe you should leave the stuff in the living room as a hint to your hubby... ;)

What kind of computer do you have? If you have a Macintosh, you can use iPhoto to download your photos. If you have a Windows computer, you can use Picassa.

Can't wait to see the photos of all your projects you're working on.

Happy RTT!

You sound like an awesome grandma : )

I love hilarious sports team names, I can only hope the isotopes have a mascot... I'm picturing an atom costume, very Jetsons.

Best of luck with the artwork, although, of course, luck has nothing to do with it really. So, best wishes with the assembly, installation, and display, which surely will be wonderful!

Have you tried emailing the pictures to yourself and then saving them?

My studio often spills out into the house.

Have fun with the g'kids.

My studio at present is a mess?.. or just over crowed?.. or what is the difference..?.. LAUGHING.

oooohhh...minor league baseball! we are big fans. we are going to see the sky sox play the 51s on fathers day. Our youngest is scared, not of clowns, but of mascots. we actually have to shield her from Sox the Fox.

Working with the youngsters! How lovely. I'm sure the product will be fabulous, for when love and dedication meet the result is usually a miracle.

Sounds like you are having a busy and creative time, Sue Ann. Enjoy !

SandyCarlson said...

Awesome fun your way! Wow. I hope the cirque is a pleasure, not a plague for the grandkids.

All of your fiber arts projects inspire me to log off and go explore.

Good luck with the pix. I have no idea how phone cameras work.

I HATE it when phones do that... I have no solutions either!!

Fingers crossed you will soon get your bigger studio!

Dr John says that the sigh doesn't mean no, it just means he's trying to figure out how to come up with the money! I would like a bigger studio too!
