I’m a little anxious.. since I moved out of the city, I’ve lost access to my beloved Tekserve. So my computer is commuting to the city for (hopefully only) 2 days for an upgrade and checkup.
I will have internet access, but unfortunately, no design tools! Oh […]
With all this nice weather we’ve been having in the Hudson Valley, it’s hard to think of snowmen already.. but I’m busy getting ready for the holidays. I have a holiday fair on Saturday – the Chappaqua Craft Fair – in Chappaqua, NY, right across from the Chappaqua Train Station. Come […]
We planted these seeds during the summer. There are red flowers and they’re now just starting to change to yellow with the rest of the trees around here.
But I love geting up real close to this plant. I like the shape of the leaves and the way it looks like a […]
I think the holiday threw me off – I completely missed my wireless day! So no worries, no guilt, welcome wireless Thursday.
We live in a Land of Make Believe, we make the rules, we decide how to live.
I’m feeling especially thankful today that people are liking my art, my etsy […]
I’m getting things done: 1 2 3 today! Happy wireless Wednesday.
Unfortunately, my #1 is finding this DVD I borrowed from the library that jumped out of its case. Perhaps a kitten helped it escape.. They want $33 for it if I don’t find it! When was the last time you bought […]
Happy Wednesday! wireless Wednesdays are my productive days – whether that be productive in drawing, learning to relax (giving my eyes and hands a break is really important when I’m on the computer all day), or taking some time to get outside while the weather’s still nice.
Today, I’m […]
Every Wednesday I’m reminding myself to get off the computer (/phone/tv), go outside and enjoy some nature. That’s why I moved out of the city, right? But wherever you are, it’ll be nice to enjoy some fall today. I actually do love the city in the scarf-wearing fall too.
I took […]
I missed a wireless Wednesday, so I’m looking forward to today when I can get off the computer for a little bit, and find a sunny spot with my sketchbook and tea.
Some other bright spots in my week:
– Learned to finally knit at a weekly knitting night. I’m […]
Wednesday, I’ll be busy busy folding, scoring and packing cards for my very first craft/street fair! – a very wireless activity.
Catch me at SeptemberFest:
Nyack, NY. Main Street – Sunday, September 8th, 10-5
I’ll be in spot B-14 with a green tent.
Keep your fingers CROSSED for […]
Doing another wireless Wednesday! And it really was wireless this morning because optimum had to come fix our internet speed. It’s MUCH faster.. and one of the simple things that the technician reminded me to do was go to my history and delete cookies and cache.. do it! So much […]
I’m bringing Wireless Wednesdays back! My connection to the digital world will be limited to checking work email briefly in the morning and at night. I’m not going to keep my email open and click on the window every time the little number goes up.. that goes for twitter too. Not going […]
I’m sticking to it! The first Wireless Wednesday was great and so free-feeling. I knew I was spending a lot of time on the internet, but didn’t really realize how much time it would free up to do constructive things – things like cleaning my desk or making clouds.
I have a […]
I’ve been wanting to do a “wireless” day for a while.. a day when I don’t frantically check email, read every email that shows up, don’t get distracted by facebook or twitter or the millions of sources of great design that I can’t help but read and drool over, don’t turn on my […]
