A new term...

I was just talking on the phone with my mom and was telling her that there is a concert on 9/11 that I just bought tickets to. She made a strange noise as if it was inappropriate or inadvisable to do something on 9/11 and I said well the world does go on, despite whatever unfortunate events have happened. She then told me that she had heard them talking on the news already about the anniversary of the attack coming up. I then suggested that "anniversary" really brings to mind a celebration of something happy and suggested we develop a new term, "trageversary" to describe the passing of another year of which a tragedy took place on a particular date.  Seriously, we need a new term, don't you think??

A little "treasure" I had forgotten about...

While unpacking, sorting, and organizing I came across this old book that I made for a class at MCAD back in 2002. The class was Anthropology; I don't quite remember what the assignment was. I had totally forgotten about it but was very amused to see it again. So, I thought I'd share.

A story of creation...

I didn't die. I just moved into a house!

For those of you waiting to see what my latest art project is I have to apologize as I have not been working on anything new for about a month now! I've been neck deep in moving, organizing, painting, and dreaming about shopping at Home Depot (and actually shopping at Home Depot)! I just moved into my first house!!!! It's an adorable little rambler style place that was built in 1958. It is finally starting to come together now. My folks came up from Oklahoma and brought a trailer full of stuff, some stuff that I'd hoped I'd never see again, but of course I don't want to just get rid of it! Things like my baby blanket, in the event that I ever do date again that will look real sexy hanging in the bedroom! I guess I will just have to find a good storage place for it :-) Luckily my stuffed toys wouldn't fit in the load they brought up! Nothing more mature than a 30 yr old with a closet full of stuffed toys! Here a few photos of the place. I will have a studio space too, which is obviously going to be fantastic, but it's not quite fixed up yet. Still lots of things to be done.

p.s. A big thank you to my folks for helping and doing so very much and to my Mom for doing lots of cleaning and helping me get things together too.

The living room, which I had to paint a beautiful aqua color! Subdued is so overdone!

The pink tile bathroom. The tub and toilet are pink too!

The main bedroom, still needs some art on the walls!
