Wicked and Whimsical New Work
This set of Halloween coasters, listed now on eBay, was just soooooooooo much fun to create - and one of those I know I'm going to have trouble parting with. In fact, I toyed with the idea of keeping them, as I searched Etsy and eBay for cool Halloween wine glass charms, picturing them adorning a large buffet table in my newly painted orange dining room come October....
OK, back to reality, lol....The fact is if I didn't sell my creations, I'd have to get a "real job" (the kind with a schedule, a boss, directions, supervision, etc) and we do NOT want that to happen. Would you believe I'm not good with authority and structure? It's true. ;)
Other work this week includes completion of two overdue commissions, a "Cirque du Chats" sign to be listed later this evening, and probably a few goodies on Etsy as well.
We're in for thunderstorms here today - perfect weather for staying inside creating Halloween goodies - so I'm off to face the day now. If I work VERY hard, I plan to reward myself with an evening out; dinner and the new Sex and the City movie. I know, I know, it's the cinematic equivelent of junk food. And acccording to the Rolling Stone magazine review John just HAD to point out to me yesterday "most dudes would rather set their d**ks on fire" than endure it. Be that as it may, I need a little break, and he's reluctantly agreed to go with me. What a guy. ;)
On that note, I'm off to brew a pot of tea, light some candles, put a little Van Morrison on (the new CD is incredible, BTW!) and PAINT...
Until next time,
