Hey there. How have you been? Seems like I haven't Musical Monday'ed in ages! By the way you can catch more Dear Reader over at dearreadermusic.com (& all over youtube)
So what have you all been up to while I dropped of the face of the earth? I've been kinda unplugged lately & have missed keeping up with everyone's art & adventures. So if anyone is still out there.... whatcha up to?
Me? Kiddo's still keeping me on my toes. I'll admit to breathing a sigh of relief once school starts in about a month--ssshhh don't tell.
Then the catching up begins (again). Remember the studio/pigsty? Apparently the mess has been breeding while I've been away....
Yeah, I know, ewwww..... But it'll have to wait a while longer.
Little Dude & I are off to Maine later this week. It'll be a nice break. If I can figure out how to send photos from the camera to a borrowed PC, I'll post pics along the way. I can already taste the blueberries...and to swim in a lake without alligators again...woohoo! My son thought I was pulling his leg when I told him you could to that - yep, he's a Florida Native.

Let's see...what else is up.... (warned you I'd be babbling)....
5 fun ATCs came in from the mixed media swap. Rather than brave the scary studio, I sent off a few from my ArtSnark Etsy shop that had been collection dust like The Siren here:
and Alla Nazimova:
It was a great mix of trades that came in the mail. I'll scan & post them here tomorrow.
Only other thing I've been up to is looking for a Paris rental for this fall. We'll go for a week or so. I'm very excited! (And I have to admit it is a lot of fun seeing the incredible variety of places to choose from.)
