Aaaaaand we're back!

Jeez it's been almost a month since I last posted. In that time I painted some walls, refinished some floors, packed a TON of boxes, moved a TON of boxes, unpacked a TON of boxes, hung a bunch of paintings, watched Sage's beloved fish slip down the drain, took Erik's sister's family to California Adventure, and spent a week with my dear mom (a.k.a. the "kitchen fairy" due to her amazing cupboard organizational skills and ability to have breakfast ready before the birds were chirping). We also managed to fit in a Dodger game

(our once-a-year attempt at being red-blooded Americans) and this weekend, Felt Club.

You can more Felt Club photos here. As always, it was a blast. Jamie Chan of MaryJane's Attic taught me how to do needle felting and I think I found a new craft addiction. Check out my balls and nipple!

I've always coveted those felt ball necklaces and now I'm on a mission to make my own. And the nipple? I made it for this: The Nipple Project, a community based art installation
that will be exhibited in October 2006, to coincide with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Go on, send your nipples too. The more the nipplier!

(Apologies to my in-laws who sometimes read my blog. Your son/brother really did marry a fine upstanding normal girl. Oh wait, your son/brother makes art like this: Lord North, you're used to such nonsense.)

So now the dust (and dog hair) have settled and things should be getting back to normal. And by normal, I mean not.
