I'm sure all of you sat and watched the Led Zepplin video I posted late last night, right? Have you ever really listened to the words of that song? They confuse and amaze me. I had a youtube marathon due to massive amounts of caffeine consumed while dealing with a fallen tree and a smashed car. The local body shop estimates $8000-$10,000 damage, yes indeedy, and two or three weeks in the shop, while Gerry drives a very odd looking rental car. I did manage to get a couple of barns made, I have got to catch up on inventory, people want barns, I have none to give. I love the way the light comes into my studio in the afternoon. I am having many wonderful afternoons working in my new space and I feel so content there. It's a wonder I ever come in to the house. But there are those two I live with that like to have a meal with me from time to time:)
I know we had a discussion here a while back about what to call my buildings. Well, I have decided to refer to them as barns. They are mostly barns, I love barns and they were influenced by barns so barns they will be. And since I am making barns I thought some animals would be fitting so I am making some cows and pigs. I found these cookie cutters and so these are my new ornaments. Cute. And I betcha if I look around someone else is making cows and pigs and I will be accused of ripping someone off, but I'm not. I just saw these cookie cutters and thought they fit with what I make. If it's a problem for someone, I'll not make them, just let me know :) don't want to be the kettle that called the pot black. Is that how that saying goes?
The Hillsborough Arts Council came up with a fair and generous offer to all of us that were tornadoed out of the festival a few weeks ago. They are allowing us space at the Hog Days Festival. I know, it's unfortunate name for a festival, right? It's a barbeque feasting, lots of seared animal flesh and mass consumption of pig, so I thought the pig ornaments were appropriate. We'll see how soon I get tired of making these little guys. Which reminds me, I really should get started on those cursed stars that sell so well at Christmas. grrrr.....
Ok, off to the studio for barn making, peace ya'll, thanks for being my blogger friends!
