*deep breath*

Getting mentally prepared to call a periodontist, and procrastinating by writing this instead! (Because I don’t want to think about oral surgery! Or the stress that caused my need for it!)

March Post Cards

… will be mailed this week! April’s coming up, and if you want to be on the list for April’s card, you can still sign up!

By the way, I had a report that the PayPal subscription button didn’t work…! I did what I could to fix it. Please, if you try to subscribe and are unable, let me know!


… are in progress! And I have a nice new tube of Titanium White, most of which will be spent on “Ghost”. 🙂

I missed my studio hours yesterday, thanks to a dentist appointment, but I’ll have two more studio days this week. And hopefully I’ll be able to get some studio time in the evenings, once the kids are in bed. “Composure” is slated to be finished before the first week of April, but it still needs a lot of work. We’ll see!


Three books right now:

Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan (Book 10 of The Wheel of Time)
The Smart Woman’s Guide to Heart Health by Sarah Samaan
Illuminated Manuscripts and Their Makers by Rowan Watson

I’m also contemplating reading some G.K. Chesterton. Does anyone have recommendations on what to start with in his vast bibliography?


Let’s Bring The Holidays Down A Notch — about the social pressure to have traditions for holidays you wouldn’t have thought to celebrate…! I admit, my kids have come home with some “Why don’t we  do __ for ___” questions, too, and it’s frustrating!

… Still working on collecting more links. I read so many fine articles linked through Twitter, but I do it on my wireless handheld device, and I don’t copy them to my computer! I should. (Evernote might work…)
