Remember back in elementary school you couldn't wait to buy all your school supplies weeks before classes started? Well that was me weeks ago...no it has been a month and although classes started weeks ago, my supplies are still waiting on me to get started. I knew when I signed up for KC Willis' Collage Camp workshop I would not be able to start right away. Every day I glance over at my pile of growing fabrics, canvas, vintage jewelry, birds nest paper, lace, trims and more....and think...today I will get caught up so I can start. By the end of this week I will have my fabrics ripped and soaking in their coffee bath to give them that old worn vintage look.
As much as I would like to just put other things on the back burner and start on my Collage Camp project, I have obligations to others that must come first plus I am trying to get as much done for my July exhibit before we fly home for my niece's wedding the first of June.
Steve left Tuesday afternoon on a business trip and KC who just came home Sunday from college couldn't wait to unload all of her stuff and pack a bag to go with him. It was a hard decision....Pool or Mom....Daddy Steve or Mom....Dinner out restaurant of her choice or Mom....Room Service or Mom! I usually go on these trips with him, but I have been gone more than I have been home lately and I just couldn't do it this time. It does both of them good to spend this time together....I don't know who enjoys it more KC or Steve.
And I have 7 days to work like a mad woman....slinging paint, ripping fabrics, taking care of the business side of running a business and the list goes on and on. So it is back to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (I love their new CD the kids gave me for my Birthday and Steve upgraded my phone to a Red Blackberry with their ring-tone, Who's Got the Action) while I paint for a while before hitting the bed.
p.s. I almost forgot. KC is now offering the Collage Camp Workshop on DVD.
