Remember this page from Girlfriends Forever? Well, here I am again, trying on clothes with a pencil in my mouth! Getting ready to board the Ocean Liner (this sends ((((a chill)))) through me, those words!) Pretty soon I’ll give you a glimpse of color combos . . . when I get everything together! Here’s the plan:
This method is no fail for me (if I take the time to do it!). And it’s worth it: I don’t pack too much; I don’t pack things that don’t go with anything; and I don’t forget the shoes that match the pants! There’s a dress code on the ship; you have to dress for dinner!
My life is all about “getting ready to go” now; sending away for art supplies, going to the drug store for a new nail file and some nail polish, getting our favorite salted almonds to pack (Blue Diamond BOLD salt and vinegar, yum!), writing lists (five now), and making sure the Studio has what it needs to go on without me for a couple of months. Thank goodness for Judy and Kellee at the Studio, they make everything possible! ♥ ♥ ♥
This morning I signed and dated new Artist’s Proofs of this painting to send to the Studio (this giclee is made from the original painting that’s hanging over the dresser in the photo above, the one in the Girlfriends book).
I also tied myself in tiny knots to sign the little round wheels for my wooden pull toys . . . this is harder than it looks! Wood and pen don’t really mix, it’s a bumpy road!
I approved this new little gift card so we have a birdy to go into summer . . .
And now, outside I go on this clear, bright, cool, spring day, to dig holes in the garden, so that when we get home from the trip, my garden will look something like this — I love glads on a picket fence . . . they look so fresh and cottagy — and hard to believe it, July will be here before we know it!!
That’s it, seed planting time for me, hope you’re all having a wonderful day! Just had to give you the blow-by-blow! ♥
