Lots Of Work

Who decided to make work so much .... WORK? It is really not that bad. I just like complaining about my boss leaving me to run the shop by myself for three weeks. I also get to be the bad guy and tell people that their orders can not be completed untill next month because the woodshop guy is out on vacation (also my boss). There is only so much I can do in one day and I kinda refuse to learn carpentry so I don't have to take up that slack too. Good news is, the new jobs have been posted (I hope a bagillion peope applied) and I have a few people volunteering. They get to be my slave labor and push a button every 6 minutes to help engrave 250 beer glasses. I couldn't do it this month with out them. Thanks AP and TT! *hug*

I got all my homework finished and my final exam is complete. I now should have much more time to do actual art instead of just learning about its history. That is of course if my neighbors let me be a hermit. How can I make stuff when they keep cooking me dinner and making me drink German beer? Have you ever tried to crochet drunk? Bleh. Don't do it. Oh, and all this in time for Mike to come back from a month in Romania. *squee* He said he has been drawing some tattoo designs. I've been hoping he would get back into illustration so I can use his drawings for my art. (I'm so selfish) His hand drawn stuff translates well into embroidery and sometimes art quilts. I'm tottaly in love with Ed Hardy's stuff and think Mike's designs would look great on some shoes or a hat. I'll paint em if he draws em.

The good thing about working so much lately is all the creative stuff I've been able to do for customers. Lots of standard plaques and framed art but also neat engraving and intersting shadow boxes. I spent most of my day hand stitching a peewee football jersey so that it would lay flat. Then I had to stitch it to the background mat board. Chalanging, but time consuming. I'll take some pics of work stuff since personal atr seems to have gone out the window last month. And I missed sign ups for this round of Alphabet ATCs. Pooh, I'm gonna miss out on JKL. Personal Swap anyone? I need some thing to work on.
