More kitchen, less art...

So the last few weeks have been working on the kitchen. We're trying to finish up the grout. My knees are rubbed raw from kneeling on the tile. Jeremy puts the grout in, I get to wait the hour, and wipe it off. I also get to wipe the haze off as well.

This last weekend, I got to spend some time with one of my best buddies, Maya. We were supposed to do crafts together. Heh. Saturday, we drove down to Lacey, Wa and went to Shipwreck Beads. Its kind of the Powells Bookstore of beads. It was a long drive there and back, but I think Maya ended up with lots of good stuff.

On the way back, we stopped off in Redmond to get my hair chopped/lopped/and razored off. First time I've changed my hair in 10 years. Not sure I like it yet. My hubby likes it. Other people have commented that its cute. Not sure if they really like it, but feel like they need to make a comment.

A short trip to Michaels and Joann's, and bam! It was 6 pm, and time for me to go home to work on the kitchen. *sigh*

Sunday, I was in the kitchen until 1 pm. Maya and I still managed to get a couple of hours of crafts done. She's working on a house trade for Art & soul. I'm trying to come up with some kind of charms.

And then, to plot what I want to make for trades for next year's artfest. I have to laugh when I see Maya sign up for all the different trades. I remember overdoing it my 1st year. Last year, all I did were the little stuffies for trades. No fatbaooks. No atc books.

I'm looking forward to the one Art & Soul class I signed up for in October with Keely. I'm hoping that it will whet my appetite until Artfest. I have all these sewing projects in my head that I want to get started on, and no time to do them. Arrrrgh.

Artfest Schedule 2008

Its up, its up, its up!!!!

Happy dance. Now, to determine what I want to take. The Keith LoBue class looks phenomenal, but its slated for the full 3 days.

On a side note, I pulled an ENORMOUS, gigantosaurus zucchini from my garden last night. I doubt its very tasty. Not that I have a kitchen anyways.
