reigning some things in

Had an honest soul searching talk with Cathy when she was here this weekend about some of the things that have been stopping me from making new artwork. (Although she compared my slight stubbornness to a rock and if you banged my head against a rock, the poor rock would loose. This is not entirely inaccurate.)

One of the issues is that I have a lot of work that I'm not thrilled about. Some will find new homes with friends but others will soon be seeing the sharp end of a pair of scissors so that I can take out the portions I like and create a piece that is strong.

My hesitation about my current portfolio has never been so evident to me as I'm working on the new version of my website. I've done nearly everything except the gallery for my artwork. So I need to make some changes.

One of the other decisions I've made is that I'm going to combine the blogs for Mixed Bag Designs and Fibra Artysta. I thought it would be a good idea for it to have its own home but whenever I do post something in MBD's etsy shop, I post it here too so its obviously not the brightest idea I've ever had.

And I want Mixed Bag Designs to be updated at my own pace. While it would be wonderful if it sold as well online as it did in person, I don't want it to take over everything, I have too many other projects that I want to work on.

Speaking of which, I need to get my behind into the studio. I'm working on some totes for Virginia Spiegel's new FFAC fundraiser, Tote Tuesday. I'd like to square those away today so that they are ready to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. More on that soon.

I'm fretting something terrible today. Dooley love is going in for minor surgery tomorrow and while its no big deal (cyst on his little leg), I detest the idea of him being knocked out. So I'll be all fidgety today and tomorrow. Poor baby love...

Okay, enough online time. Need to get to work.

Dooley will come through just fine. He's lucky to have someone who cares enough (and has the resources) to take care of such a thing. I doubt he knows it, though. Try not to fret.

Best of luck, Dooley, here's hoping for a quick recovery. Get to work, Lynn, you're one of the strongest women I know. Just don't be your own enemy. That Cathy is a smart cookie.
