Before I get bogged into the crazy that my art practice has been for the last bit, I just wanted to mention to Green Bay area peoples that tomorrow night is Gallery Nite, so if y’all want to come and chat with me in person, meet the girls from Hello Purl or Zoe from Knits by Zoe, or really just see a whole bunch of art, y’all should come to Gallery Nite.
The four of us are going to be at the ARTgarage.
So, yeah, stuff and things.
Really, for those of you playing at home, I haven’t been getting much more done that spinning art-yarn and some writing.
Although, I did teach my first drop spindle class at the ARTgarage last week. It went really well, like, really well. The drop spindles I made worked just fine, and I had plenty of material for the students, which go squid!
…really, I need to make more drop spindles. *sigh* Sanding is so not my favorite thing.
So, ArtStreet was fun and I picked up some fiber to spin from Hello Purl and picked up some commission spinning, which was one of the strangest things I think I’ve ever done, but it’s spun, plied, and ready to be handed of to it’s owner at Gallery Nite.
Of course, I don’t think I took a picture of the art batt I got at ArtStreet before I spun it up.
Customer loyalty and all that.
The skein on the far right is from this art batt.
And, y’all get to see how just messy my office desk is all the time. Although, now, it’s being protected by four of The Avengers in bobble-head form.
The commission spinning went well (because commission spinning is cool like bowties and fezs but not like stetsons).
I also got this obnoxious thing spun. Really, this stuff just sucked to spin.
I’m not going to subject y’all to the writing today, though y’all might like it. I do have a bit of talent with words with all that education I have, but yeah, this is what I’ve been doing during my Funk to End All Funks.
I’m not sure it’s better, but I’m freaking out about so many other things that I’m getting art and writing stuff done in self-defense.
Because I freak out like no one y’all have ever met (maybe), and I have productive freak outs.
It’s like productive insomnia. We should bottle it and sell it to all the people.
And, if y’all want to keep up on my writing and things a bit more real-time, try my Tumblr. Yeah, it’s kinda fandom(s) heavy, but it’s kinda fun. I’ve totally come out all of it with new things to read and listen too because fandom is huge and awesomely weird.
