    Congratulations Trina! I'm sure it'll be fine since you've already told them of your prior commitments.

    Thanks Mel. It'll be nice to have some somewhat steady income for a few months. And, when it rains it pours or so they say, I just received a request for interview with Kohls (not in a shopping mall and closer to home) so I'll check them out at well. Things are looking up just a bit.

    Congrats on the new job, Trina!
    Congrats on weathering the hurricane, Gem! That looked a might scary, what I saw of it on my newsfeeds.
    And congrats to everyone else for still being alive and kicking!

    I'm still alive and kicking, though going through some health issues. I'll be alright...my blood sugars went haywire and threw me for a loop after two injections in my back. (Amy I hope your back is feeling better also!)

    Been working on the art for my pole in Lucas, KS. Almost done with it. Will have to deliver it sometime next week so it can be hung.

    My partner's envie will go out tomorrow! Had planned on doing that today but the old body said, "Nope! You're staying home today!" I do have to go out tomorrow though so a trip to the post office will occur after I see the vampires for lab work.

    Here's hoping you all have a fabulous day!
    “Don’t worry about whether or not what you’re making is great art, just finish the work. Let other people argue about whether or not it’s any good. While they’re busy arguing, make more art.” Andy Warhol

    Be good to one another. It matters!

    dmnh, I'm sorry to hear about the blood sugars, but I'm glad you are back on your feet.

    Can't wait to see your pole art!!!!

    Ah, and those lab vampires, I've had my share of them. And I'm very, very proud of you for listening to your body when it tells you to stay home. Good job!!!!


    I seem to be full of good news these days. My partner's envie's in the works and will be finished and mailed by Friday. On the good news front, though, I reached my weight goal (surpassed it actually), and now need to learn how to maintain that weight (plus or minus 2 lbs). My total weight gone is 50 lb. I just wanted to let you all know.

    Donna, darling, take good care of your self...Hope all goes back to normal for you soon. <3

    Trina, dearest, I'm jelly over your weight loss! LOL! Although I'm not dieting or anything...going back to work really helps to make things better in that aspect for me You would think working with cookies, I would be a million pounds, but it sorta turns your stomach to be around sweets all day....then trying to eat one.

    Mel, personally I wouldn't work in a candy store - chocolate is okay because I don't like chocolate but there are those other candies. haha. I have been going to Weight Watchers for 4 years to get back to good eating habits and get back to where I should be, so it's all good. And yes, getting out of the house and working or being somewhere else works wonders for sure.

    Hey peeps! Just trying to catch up through the thread I've only been posting where I had to this week, as my kitty had dental surgery. She broke one of her "fangs" last month (she's rambunctious!) and had to go in for a root canal. While she was there, the vet surgeon said she had really bad teeth and removed another six of them, which was a bit of a surprise (they are a little arrogant at this clinic, but he's the only animal dental specialist in town...) So I've been watching over my silly little furball this week to make sure she doesn't bust her stitches. She's been a good girl, a little hopped up on codeine, but recovering nicely. But she did come home with three shaved legs (for the IV) because she's apparently talented at pulling it out!
    Come on over and check out the HD/HP Round Robin Group!

    Oh Miss M, I'm sorry to hear about your little furball. I'm glad she's doing better and she's lucky to have you as her mommy.

    I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I'm off today to the Crocker Art Museum for an all-day Diebenkorn Symposium. There's a fabulous new exhibit of Richard Diebenkorn's early works there. There will be various speakers, including his daughter, on the panel, and a reception, a buffet lunch (that was extra and I didn't know it would be buffet, so I didn't choose that), and a book signing.

    On Sunday, I'm going to a house to teach a book binding class for something that I'm still not exactly clear what they want. They say that they have the papers and just need to learn to put it together. It seems to me that they could figure it out online, but I am a teacher and will teach and need the funds, so we'll see how it goes.

    Hugs to all!

    It's hard enough trying to get a cat in water for a bath...but a root canal?! Most humans won't sit for that either! LOL! Glad your fur ball is doing well <3

    Trina, you go girl! Show them peeps how it's done!

    Jazzie, your wonderful envie made it to me! You make a reference to pumpkin spice and I have heard it mentioned here on afa before so I am off now to check what it is and see if I can get it here or make it myself...

    my brace arrived on Thursday and is already helping tremendously. i was able to get some trades out in the mail and ive got my envie started. i can only sit at the art table for very short periods but just being able to sit there at all is a huge improvement. hoping my back is finally on the mend and ill be back to business as usual before too long.

    Hope you mend quickly Amy. Doesn't sound fun at all

    Gem, pumpkin spice is just the stuff that they typically put in pumpkin pie...cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves...

    If I can upload my envie, you'll see it's a joke about lattes - it was something from a magazine. I tried several times last night and got failure notices.
    PM me for new address - no longer @ Hillandale or Talbot

    theweavershand, I am glad to hear that the brace is helping. When I received one for my ankle/leg last year, I found it to be quite helpful as well. I wish you well and able to work at your art desk for as long as you like. Hugs.

    My partner this month is Mel & I received her adorable envie today. I don't have a pic but it's made of kraft paper & has a bird ( of course) in pink & black with white spots on its front and a very cool quote on the back that I can relate to. The quote says " Isn't it weird that we have one hand that knows how to do everything and then one that just sits there like 'I don't know how to hold a pencil' " ? So true.
    Thank You, Mellie.
    Mine should have arrived by now, I sent it about 10-11 days ago. If it doesn't show up let me know & I'll shoot you another one.

    If the envie is from Mel, it's got to be very cute LindyLu. Lucky you.

    I received my envie from Vikinglady. It's a fabulous envie with words and leaves and a map and some surprises as well. My envie for my partner will be going out in about a day. Family who had been evacuated because of the fires left yesterday to return home (they are fortunate to still have a home in Napa), so I'm catching up on things. And, I also have formulated a brand new plan, but that's for later.

    Jazz, is your upload failure with AFA, or is it a comp thang?

    Linda! So sorry I didn't mention it yet...but, I did get your Envie. I just procrastinated in pointing you It's funny that you sent a harvest moon themed Envie...I leave my house before the sun is up and see the moon. Back a few weeks when the moon was big...I got to see the best views of it! I will get a pic up probably on my day off...It's when I'm home with the best light <3

    LindyLu that is a fabulous moon scene envie! A real stunner, Mel is very very lucky

    Jazzie I usually get failure messages because the picture is too large (too high quality). Lower the resolution and it should work? That is also the reason why I still have to take pics with my old iPad, my new iPad has a much better camera and the picture quality is too high. I have not yet found a way (with free apps) to lower the resolution size locally. I just have to take a pic from really far away, some 3 ft or so and then zoom into the pic...
