Thursday, March 23


Sometimes I have to remind myself to have fun. Relax. Make mistakes. Play. Draw in pen on scraps of cardboard, grab the white gouache and a pink marker and make those fake candy ads I've been imagining.

Tomorrow I'm having two other makers over. We're going to eat chili and other deliciousness, swoon over fabrics like this, swap from our stashes, sew, maybe make buttons? In all, a good time, I expect.

So today is cleaning, lots of these guys and this group and of course my favorite. I bought a dustpan yesterday, so I don't have to use whatever cardboard is hanging around anymore. And tomorrow morning I'm going to make cookies, so the whole apartment will smell good.

And then it'll be back to the push and shove: school rushing to a close, grading papers, my thesis, etc., ad infinitum. Or for you, I'm sure, ad nauseum, so I'll stop now. Happy weekend! Go see the flower show if you're in town. Otherwise--what are you thinking of doing?

I wish that those were real candies although I bet candy wouldn't even be as yummy as those fake candy labels! So great!

I love the fairy gum ad. I was infatuated with that exact shade of pink when I was a little girl -- well, I guess I still am a little bit. :)
