Chaotic...

...Weirdly enough, I'm feeling chaotic today....a little like my workspace...which is odd: nothing's due..no tight deadlines...can't explain it....Maybe I'm sad that my days at home are coming to an end? Anyways, it sucks...case of the blahs, I guess...I was working on that animation project with Z last night and was just not having a bit of fun with it...just not feeling it at all...and decided that wasn't how I wanted to unhappily spend my weekend....(I'm horrible, I know!!) but I'm also sad because it's a cool project and a cool idea, its just not worth not enjoying it when I can be, say, sewing....ya know?...Z is happy, cuz now he can do whatever he wants...lol...=) And I'm happy cuz I started my painting...=) So all-around, not adding another project to my list of projects-I-feel-like-I-need-to-do is good! Plus, the weekend is busy enough without a deadline on top of everything....yeesh! And my throat has still been hurting from that cold that should be long gone by now...and we're going out tonight and tommorrow and Sunday....

Speaking of the painting, though, there's a peek of it on the bottom left (the green, blue, and pink....yay!) It's turning out a little more Dr.Suess-ey than I envisioned...lol..but it's fun!

Oh! There is some happy news! =) Yesterday I got a parcel from Papercrafts with my page and a few copies of the first magazine I've ever been published in!! yay!! It was so funny and weird to see it in there...lol...
....It's the April/May issue, if you're a Papercrafts reader...=)

Anyways, off to watch a movie and snuggle up on the couch...going to see our friend Choom's West Coast Symphony play tonight, but this time she's not playing, she gets to watch with us...yay! =) Happy day, everyone!

Your painting looks fantastic. I looooove the colours! I am also working on a painting.. my first one. But the canvas is tiny :). I thought I would start with something small :). I must say that your workspace looks just as small as mine. Drives me nuts sometimes! *LOL*

Look at that yummy messiness of a desk! Congrats on the publication! My mom actually gave me a sub to that mag for Christmas. I have yet to find time to dig through the latest issue. But, now that I know you're in there, I'll have to give it a little look-see. :0)
