Today is my panic day. It happens two days before EVERY SINGLE TRIP. I mean it… two days before I leave the house my brain and body both kind of sieze up. Like I’m “shorting out.” And consequently, I get almost nothing accomplished on this day.
So, I’m writing a blog post. Ha ha. The above Blue Horse is a painting I’m bringing to Art & Soul next week… I get to stay with the fabulous Judy Wise… Steve is meeting me in Seattle later in the trip for a rare vacation alone together… plans for Wes are being made (and stressing me out)… the house, of course, is a total disaster… the weather is beautiful here in Colorado… kids are playing in the school playground just around the corner… trucks are driving by… I have an hour of sewing to complete and a cross-country race to leave for in a few minutes. The cat is sleeping. All the lights in the house are on and it’s the middle of the day. (AAAAHHHHHHHH!!)
Oh my, I know that feeling so well! Hold on and keep putting one foot in front of the other and you will get there eventually. I would love to be a cat in the corner (seemed nicer than the old fly thing!) while you and Judy are visiting. I admire you both so much. One of your journals fulfilled its destiny this week. My friend was changing her name legally to celebrate her relationship with her mum and grandma rather than an absent-from-the-start father, and I gave her the journal with her new name inside as a naming present.
Enjoy Art and Soul (when you get there!)

I love your blue horse, Carla! You know you will be fine. One day left, right? Don’t forget to breathe!!!

Love this one. I am a sucker for girls with horses…can’t wait to see your work at vendor night. So I have been panicked for two weeks running around not very productive gearing up for A&S…I tend to really kick into a focused state the last two days…do or die I guess. So consider yourself lucky to only have one panic day:)

Have a wonderful time at Art and Soul. I was planning on attending this year, but seemed to run out of time. Hope that you and Judy enjoy your visit. I am so excited to be in her floorcloth class at Artfest…
Please e-mail me after your get-away with your husband. Just a question about a purchase.
