font mania

Why, oh why am I addicted to fonts??? I am too ashamed to say how many I have... andI am constantly trolling for more. The right font for a project brings me JOY!!! That being said... Lettering Delights is an amazing source. There are almost 1000 fonts and they are CHEAP!!! Now, I need an intervention. Stop me before I buy more!

McLain Castle

Will's room is coming along nicely...



I bear no burden, save the one
of ordinariness that rides my back,
a scrawny crone, her weight
no more than a bundle of dry sticks.
She fills my ear with her raspy complaints.
You never buy me a new dress.
I saw that one with buttons of real bones.
They looked like your teeth,
so white and even.
Take me to the fair.
I want something sweet.
Faster. Slower.
Let’s go to sleep.

When did she climb to her easy perch,
wrap her limbs like rusty wire
around my chest? I must have stopped
along my brilliant arc, rested
too long. Everywhere her sisters crawl
and clack their bones against the spines
of all of us once so bright and true.

I love me some Tim Holtz...

Tim took a look at my pendant (that I made last night!) after the very cool workshop. Laurie and I really enjoyed learning some great new altered art techniques and Tim was an angel! Very inspiring!

must make art...

still cooking...

Tomorrow is the Tim Holtz class and I am stoked!!! Laurie and I are practically salivating in anticipation!!! Oh, delight!!! Still getting the kids ready for school. Poor tykes! So absurd for school to start this early... In other news... I had a poem published on Stirring along with a fellow Wilder, L.J. Cohen a fine writer and all around great gal. And Will's castle room is underway... well, we bought the paint. ~grins~
