January 23, 2013


Wow, it is a fair bit of madness over here. I've been working madly behind the scenes on the "join the studio" concept. What a wonderful break in the work to stop for creativity coffee! I'm coming to really love this monthly event. I can't believe how deep the conversation was yesterday - everything from the nature of art to our definitions of beauty. Plus laughing and chatting about cookies and creating a band!


I finally worked with resin yesterday, thanks to the snowstorm cancelling my haircut appointment. So much was a disaster! Other things kind of worked but I got so frustrated I came down with the headache. There are days I do wonder why I am so fascinated by this kind of thing because so much goes wrong. Must be the mad scientist in me.

Talking about cookies and music. You have one pretty cool life Jamie! I'm so glad the Creativity Coffee is going so well.

It was a lovely time, Suzie! I'm so delighted with how Creativity Coffee has turned out.

Man, I'm so sorry your crafts were headache-inducing! The components look awesome and I totally celebrate the mad scientist in you!

Maybe you just needed a theme song:

Oh good! So glad it was positive.

Oingo Boingo?! Haven't heard them in forever and yes! I love that song, that could totally work. Thank you!

Shannon said...

Yay for Creativity Coffee! The conversations totally were deep and lots of opinions out there! And cookies :)

Wow Suzie, good for you for spending some mad scientist time even amidst the crazy weather. I'm sorry to hear it got you headache-y, I wonder what it is that brings you back to it.

I am thinking it's the crazy weather we're getting, from around 0 and dark and snowy to deep freeze and bright. Another plus to going west, the weather does not drastically change like this, thank goodness. My brain will get a break!
