My C3 Lab studio art wall featuring a current work in progress: The Grid” – hanging on the lower right corner

Here’s a statement that puts panic into my heart:
Thanksgiving is next week.
Yikes!
You know what that means, right?
It means Christmas is barrelling down at us.
And I’m NOT ready!

How did I lose October?
And the beginning of November to boot?
One moment, I was chugging along to meet September deadlines.
Then I took a short hiatus to visit my family.
Made a few Halloween arts and crafts.
And then… what?
I zoned out an entire month?

That can’t be right.
I’ve really been working on all sorts of things.

“The Grid” for one.
A series of small mixed media pieces on 6-inch by 6-inch cradled artist board.
My ultimate goal is to create & hang 99 pieces.
I completed 45.
Overcame my fear of power drill and actually hung up 36 of the pieces.
So that’s something, right?

Got a top-secret project in the pipeline.
Can’t tell you about it now,
but it’s another time consuming obsessive-compulsive type thing.
Exactly the stuff I like.

Made a crazy wig for myself out of all the skeins of black yarn folk keep giving me.
Attached a hand sewn felt crow to the top of it.
Wore it proudly for Halloween.

Crocheted a half dozen pumpkins.
And am currently preparing madly for this year’s upcoming
Small Business Saturday at C3-Lab.

So you see?
I didn’t exactly “lose” October.
I think all the creative days just sort of fused together into one big making bonanza.

But it’s still a shocker to realize that…
Yes…
Next week IS Thanksgiving.
So  let me wish you a very happy turkey day.
Eat lots.
Take a nap.
And thanks for checking in with me.
