What a fabulous phone call!
The phone rang this morning and the Called ID was the last name of one of my doctors. I figured it was an appointment reminder or something. I answered and * surprise * it was artist (and new bud) Leann Meixner! Leann was calling to see if she could come over and bring the voodoo boxes I purchased from her last show (and also bring over the ones that Ruth bought).
I am SO thrilled that Leann came over. She wanted to look around in my studio and she said such wonderful things to me. Wow. I am so happy I met Leann...I love, love, LOVE her art and I am delighted to begin a friendship with her, too.
LOOK -- Leann is in MY studio -- next to one of her voodoo boxes.
This is "Finish" -- as in Finish What You're Doing.
This box is SO me. I knew exactly where it NEEDED to go when I saw it in the show that Leann and another mutual friend - Joan Potter Thomas - had recently at Liberty Street Brewing Company in Plymouth, MI.

"Finish" hanging on the wall. What a great way to begin to fill up that space on my studio wall! It makes me want to bring out some of my other still-boxed-up stuffs.
Here is another of the three boxes I got. This is "Now" -- as in Now Now Now Now Now Right NOW! Again...so me!
And here is the third one -- "Think" -- as in Put On Your Thinking Cap. Yet another reminder for me...I can do things I don't think I can do initially if I just THINK about it.

I want to put NOW and Think in places where I will see them and be inspired by them. For now, they are residing with Finish and I can look straight at them from my desk in my studio.
I am sure they will let me know where they need to be.
Now I'm all excited and revved up -- and inspired -- to get back to work on the Tookies. Maybe I will work on some plaster cloth tonight!
