When I was little, my Baba would line up her daily dose of vitamins and minerals beside her breakfast plate. They were beautiful - colourful little pills and capsules. Then she would swallow them one by one by one - usually somewhere to the total of twenty. I was definitely thinking of her this morning when I took my daily dose of getter-throughs. One multi-vitamin, two advil for a sore hip, one iron supplement. GULP.
I ordered a small custom-stamped silver ring from Lisa Leonard and it arrived!! I love it. It's for Pilot. I thought I would tie it up into a good luck ribbon and hang it in her window and give it to her when she gets OLD. Because I know she will get OLD. Sweet Lisa also sent me a few little TREATS...
Dan found these great little shoes for Pilot that say SWEET. He says that's my current word. I guess I alternate between 'SWEET', 'WOOT' and just a few clicks and grunts to get my points across these days. (Good job Dan - they're awesome!)
Yes. The It's Okay painting is leaving today. Just a few more pieces of paperwork and away it goes - TO TEXAS. And yes, I hang the artwork - I breathe the artwork. It's is wholly and completely mine... AND when it leaves I sort of enjoy the dull pains in my heart because I know it was something that meant something to me - and I know that it's always with me anyways. So the pain is semi-sweet. (I put this graphic up for Maile because she likes it.)
And it spawns stuff like this..
Tiny Art 18. My small tribute to It's Okay. Tiny Art is tiny art. It's small stuff that I've been making with the small bits of time I find through my day. SMALL. It, however, makes me feel very big and very alive. And I find it very necessary to feel those things in my day-to-day life. Which seemed to ignite quite a bit of discussion from mothers everywhere - which is cool. You do your thing - and I'll do mine - and I'll see you on the other side. We'll probably even be friends.
There are four new pieces of art for sale at TINY ART.
Today: Staying indoors. BOO. It's cold again and we really have nothing outside of the house that needs to be done. Pilot's choice - and Wednesdays are her days to choose. I am looking forward to hitting my weekly shower. ;)
Get. Up. And. GO!
