Half way

This weekend I managed to pass the half-way point for the ink jet printing portion of the book I am working on. Each day gets me a little closer to the next step.

Between marathon printing sessions, I did have an excellent weekend including time spent at the Antiquarian Book Festival, time spent floating on a river with friends (and a chance to try out a waterproof 35mm camera!), a delicious brunch with my family to celebrate an upcoming event, and a little time spent seeing what new things is growing in my yard.

Back to the regularly scheduled week to come.





What a weekend

One more holiday art sale down, one more to go.

This weekend I had a table at the Roseville Holiday Festival selling my photos along with the pottery my dad and I make. It went much better than I expected! In fact, I need to restock my 2013 calendars for the No Coast festival next weekend! (If you would like a calendar, and didn’t get to the festival this weekend and won’t make it to No Coast next weekend you can order 2013 them here!)

Between festival prep, finishing photo jobs, and working my hours at the restaurant, I feel like I have been running constantly the last couple of months. Of course it is starting to take it’s toll on me, and I have been fighting a cold since right after Thanksgiving (yes, I did too much that day too, but how do you say “no” and disappoint family?) but I have been starting to feel better and trying to take it easy more.

This weekend was of course taken up with the festival, but Saturday night turned out much better than I ever hoped. I was home shortly after 5:00, and me and my Mr. FN jumped in the car and went on a little date night. Of course, that date night also included dropping off artwork that a friend had purchased awhile back, and visiting two other friends at an art sale across town. But it also was filled with laughing, spontaneity, a stop at an ice cream shop (they had sorbet!!) amazing Thai food, and buying our Christmas ornament for the year. Getting out for a fun night like that was just what I needed.

The Thai restaurant we found had the coolest paintings on the wall!


Now, on to a new week!
