Who would have thought that shy little old me would one day be opening up like this? After being invisible for so many years, not I! I came across a wonderful quote by Anaïs
Nin (probably from one of your blogs!) – it is so me right now: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” I’ve always told myself I’d be a late bloomer – maybe it’s time.
To my fellow ArtFestejados: I'll see you soon - I can't wait to meet you in person!

After the hike and a hearty lunch, it was back to the studio for me... Until the girls called again and asked if we could watch a movie together - they knew I had "I am Legend" in the house from Netflix. How could I turn them down? As dinner cooked we played Life (the SpongeBob Squarepants edition!), giggling the whole way, and then time for our scary movie with all the lights turned off! After the movie (11 pm) it was back to the studio again! Yeah, no rest for the weary.
So finally, not all finished but well under way, here are the trades. I started off with some Fridas, because silly me, I didn't know the trades were supposed to be related to the theme. Maybe somebody will want some. They're teeny.

So now I've spent the better part of the day downloading/uploading music onto it - not really what I was expecting to do today. I woke up thinking I was going to spend the whole day making trades for Artfest - silly me! At least I got the art bag finished - now to load it up with art supplies and tools! I have fun stuff arriving in the mail at the last minute - Ave's ApoxieSculpt, charms from Art Chix...um, I think I'm gonna need a second job to support this art habit.
Spring is starting to peek in around here, off and on at least. Daffodils and cherry blossoms have opened right on cue, and the sun shows its face for at least 10 minutes each day, but the temperature is still in the 30s at night, 40s by day... looking forward to the warmer sun in May!
