in a nutshell...


The photo above is brought to you by five days of me sticking my hands in thickened dye paste (and my stubbornness about not wanting to wear gloves. Cathy assured me one day at lunch that I would not perish from doing this so I touched her sandwich to make sure she wasn't lying. She proceeded to eat it so I'm pretty sure she's telling the truth).

The lovely hand drawing was done by a mischievous Anne Hiemstra, who is quiet and sweet and reserved but did not even hesitate to whip out her pen from her purse when she saw the state of my hand. I think she may need to be watched...notice the skull on the middle finger...

I've been laying on the sofa picking through the 500 (yes, that number is correct, Cathy turned into a picture taking maniac) photos I just downloaded from my camera. I plan to show you everything but over several posts. Could take me a while to work through it all. (Don't worry, I won't force your eyes to glaze over by showing you every single detail of every single second so don't look at me in such a tone.)

Now that I'm home, I'm looking at all the things I need to get done over the next two weeks and its making me a little dizzy. So we'll get it all covered but I think it will be split up a bit because I'm a bit twitchy that I may go over the edge with the amount of things I need to do. First on the list is unpacking the fifteen billion packages (ok, that may be a slight exaggeration) in my foyer. My plan to take tomorrow to lay on the sofa and drool while I catch up on my TV shows from last week may not be plausible...*sigh*

Tomorrow we'll take a look at the Blurred Boundaries exhibit from Fabrications. I'd do it tonight but Dooley is laying on the sofa next to me snoring softly and I'm thinking he has the right idea so I'm heading off to sleepy town. See you in the morning.

Love the finger puppets. I imagine the guys where you work might have a few interesting comments. Guess you have until tuesday to get your hands a bit less colorful! Why no gloves? I don't wear them to paint, but always have when using dyes. And don't ever go without them if you need to chop hot peppers-ask my DH why!

I looked at the photo quickly and thought, she made dolls at Fabrications???? Then I looked more closely.

The skull looks like he is smiling =) Could be good or bad.
