Thursday already!  its been another fast week.

Emma went to the vet (again) today for MORE shots.  So many shots, it's crazy.  So amazed at how well the new harness works.  Relieves a ton of stress associated with walking her properly and preventing all her pulling. 

Catching up with all my studio things - prints that were ordered, shirts, new cards.  It seems like each day is a step forward, but not a big enough step!  Still stuck in a weird no-man's land.

I try to reset my blogging, and then days go by and I don't blog.

Hopefully I can get back on track.

This past weekend was art all night.  A good time, but some things I didnt anticipate.  I decided to do all tees, so I would stand out form all the other artists.  People loved looking through them, but I understand that it's not all that easy to buy a shirt on the spot.  Everybody is worried about sizing.

Hoping for a much bigger turnout, thinking it was going to be this huge party scene.  But it was much more like an open studio - waves of people coming in, and then gaps where you are waiting around.  Last hour felt a little brutal (3 am)

Weekend before we had our annual yard sale.  Got rid of a lot of stuff with very few customers.  We were lucky!

Print sale ends today, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Glad to sell anything and everything.  Always feels nice to start fresh and get old things OUT.

This year very different then last.  Every year is so unpredictable. 

Emma still doing great and growing.  Stronger and more energetic, but still really calm during the day.  I love it.

Monday!  September is chugging along.  Working towards things coming up - Del Ray and AAN and MCA.

Shirts are frustrating.  The transfers require lighter shirts, but all I want to use is darker / brighter.  Its all just a big question mark.  What will sell?  What do people want?  I never know.  yet I need to plan as if I do.

Finished up "Birds" now need to stat the print.  Came out great.

Lots to do!

Rainy day today, dental pain yesterday. 

Summer officially over. A blur in the end, taking care of Remi and gearing up for (then getting) Emma.  hallmark and story district projects heavily sprinkled throughout.

Yesterday I had my wisdom tooth filled, which was a much bigger ordeal than I had thought.  Sitting in the chair I felt very calm, but it was rough going.  Especially the multiple attempts to get everything numb.  Anyway, ended up taking me out most the day to recover.  Feeling better today but jaw still very sore.
