February 11, 2008.
I am sort of in a blogging tunnel, or I am blocked on blogging, or for black of better word (oooh too many B's)....I am bummed 'bout not blogging. I don't know when it exactly happened, somewhere between yet another blog with no comments and my fall on the ground coughing fit...ya that must of been when it happened, I got seriously down on the blog.
I either made the mistake or had my eyes opened by reading other blogs, lots of other blogs that is, and that got me more down. Maybe it was blog envy......well no, I know it was not that - having read one more "look at my cute kids cupcake" post I might just choke on the damn cupcake - no really your photos are amazing but GAH, I can not handle the saccharine. So, um forgive me while I digress - it's comment envy, really it is. Some blogs get 72 comments when they post - I am trying to figure out why.
The Girl Can't Help It
Not to worry, I am sure I can pull myself up by my very lady like bootstraps and come up with something worth reading again soon....I have been over concerned that the blog was becoming too polarized and too "industry specific". So that got me thinking, and I started toying with the idea with more "real life experiences" and show you the day in my life, but that is not a pretty picture people.
So, as I was doing much research and I about fell off my chair reading about potty-training, eating chocolate, husband troubles, craft Tuesday.....too much for this girl to add to her blog, I think that is when I started whimpering and mumbling and my husband pulled me away from the computer for a few days of R & R. I have been toying with a few hot topic and a polling device, that way you can give your opinion without you know, letting me know who you are.
So, just so you did not think I totally lost it - just so you can see what I have been up to: Back in the beginning of January Darin and I well, we split up. NO, no not like that - we finally after 13+ years of sharing an office space, we separated our space. I got a pretty studio to paint in with light green walls and my collection of urns and roses.....he got the extra room in the back of the house. He did get the couch, the TV and stapler (damn I need the stapler) but I think I got the better deal.
New Work Space
The first few weeks of January were a lot of us stomping (well mostly me stomping) down the hall to give back or re-claim items from each other's "new work space". I was real sad at first - missed him, and kept yelling down the hall when I worked at home to see if he was okay. Now, a month later - I am lovin' my new space! I can spread out, I can have Abby in here to paint with me, I can email, blog, paint and do my make up all at the same time......well I could you know!
It really is quite girly, with the green and brown walls. Yes I did go out and buy fresh flowers, and as my husband said, "that was necessary" - no it was not, but it looks purty.
The room is still this clean, and I have tried to not mess up the pretty painting table, but I have been putting it to some good use. I have been painting for some exclusive designs I am working on for some companies, and I have been working on some new projects. I will keep you posted - I have been dying to show you show you some products in a particular store....
The dresser to the right is one of my favorite projects, it was free. I painted it green, then white then I sanded the heck out of it. I got the new handles on it and it is by far one of my favorite pieces in the house.......and it stores tons of my crap...I mean art supplies.
Moving On Up
So, that is where I have been....literally and my frame of mind. I apologize for skipping out and not telling you where I went (my mother would lead me to believe that is just rude, and she is right). I did not plan on going on a "blogging vacation" or a "sabbatical from blogging" I just got bogged down on blogging. But I am back.... I swear, I am listening to some Fergie...sorry!
