It was a dark and rainy day.
Actually, it was. The kind of day when I get a whole lot of stuff done.
I brought a cabinet up from the basement by myself...it is heavy! It has 11 drawers and was sold in Rubberstampmadness in the 90's as a rubber stamp cabinet. The drawers are about 20 inches wide and 14 inches deep...this is as close as I will ever get to having a flat file. I am using it for art papers in my studio. (I had one of those "DUH!" moments...it is perfect for papers & scraps that are too small for hanging on the floor rack) (Thankfully I had a burst of energy, too!) YAY!
I went to the grocery store, did laundry, ran the dishwasher. I made this cat girl in the pixel-y dress (hard to see the pattern in the scan) for my Animal People series for Art-o-mat®.
As you may imagine, I have a large Art-o-mat® art collection. Today I also went to the hardware store and bought the right size screws and wall anchors for the metal strips I got at Ikea so that I can put magnets on the backs of a lot of the blocks in my Arto-collection and display them on the wall in my studio -- and if it works out like I hope it will, I will do the same in other parts of the house. Cooly cool!
And in a little while -- after I feed the cats -- I am going to roast some turnips, onions, garlic, portobella mushrooms, butternut squash and Italian eggplants to go along with my lovely Delmonico steak. Mmmmm...leftover vegetables tomorrow!
And later on I think I will start breaking down the cardboard and bundling it up for Monday's recycling. And sort magazine cuttings into their correct trays while I watch one of the movies that arrived today from Netflix.
Ahhhh...nice day! I love dark and rainy days!
