Hello, love....

...love being that I get to stay home during the day!!! eeek! One would really think being laid off is a bad thing (my contract just ended and the studio I was at is pretty quiet right now), but I'm kind of cool with it for now....=) lol....no really, I eventually have to look for a job, but the industry is dead, and we have monies to get by for a few months, so I'm gonna enjoy my time and the billion other projects before jumping back into the job search....=)

Ahhh...I was really hoping to snuggle on the couch and have a few days of trashy tv (Dr. Phil and Maury, anyone?) and relaxing...buuut...I have some animation to do for our group project (and I'm feelinga little rusty in the animation area right now..) so I've been designing characters and building and posing them and trying to get that done - it takes an awfully long time to animate like 4 seconds of dialogue, I tell ya...so I've been at the computer working beside Z, who is also working and having to put up with my incessant chatter....(he he)...and i have some scrappy deadlines to take care of, too...but I did have a chance to play this weekend with my Rainbow Sushi kit:

....and my Dozens' December kit is still kickin around (soo much yummy stuff in those kits, man...) So I did a page about the gingerbread-house building tradition me and lil brother Brody have started (this year Z helped, too!):

That's all for today!! I'm basking in all the wonderful CHA releases..sooo wish I could've gone this year!! i am cursing our "lite" (sloooow) internet that Z and I have to share (we only have one cable plug) argh! and I'm about to be buried in house cleaning and laundry-doing today! ack! It's all good, though....my girl Mandy sent me a pack of v-day chocolate and "Blue Planet" to get me through the day - thanks girl!! I have more stuff to share this week, so stay tuned! Happy day!

Wow look at all those yummies! Talked about you a lot. You were missed this weekend. I've been told that I must convince you to go to Summer CHA but I don't think I can afford to go that far...

Sorry to hear about the lay off but I think you'll find plenty of things to keep yourself more than busy. :)
