Random tid bits, and acts of kindness

I just can't help but share this!  Last week to my utter embarrassment and a testament to my scattered brain ways - I lost my paychecks, my ENDORSED paychecks!  I didn't realized it until my morning trip to the bank.  I was utterly panicked.  Thankfully I have a very understanding office manager and the bank didn't charge for a hold on the checks, and she wrote two new ones right away.  Then, yesterday I get a letter in the mail enclosed were my checks, and a note saying they where found in the grocery store parking lot.  It wasn't signed and there was no return address.  I was totally overwhelmed, by the kindness of a total stranger.  Whoever you were thank you so much!  (A side note - I live downtown in a city where the crime rate is pretty high.)

Last night brought another blanket of snow, and with it an utter lack of motivation on my part.  I have a day off today and the plan was straight to the studio.  But the office needs to be cleaned, the laundry needs to be done, the kitchen table needs to be cleaned off,

and this cup of coffee and couch is super comfy.  

Did I mention, my studio's not heated?  I need to start a house painting for my aunt, and my postcard swap requires some time for trail and error because I still don't know what I want to create.   So, my solution is to give myself 2 hours here at the house and then head to the studio, even if it's only for a little while.

I also have to say I am totally overwhelmed by everyone's kind words and encouragement.  In the short time that I have been doing this blog, I feel like I have found a fabulous community of such talented people.  Following these artist blogs give me so much inspiration.  Thank you!!
