I am Victorious

I received Victor from Mealy Monster Land. He is such a sweet monster with his little dolly. I am impressed that something called a monster can be so cute.

I've been cleaning. Spring cleaning. Always the procrastinator, I am now Spring cleaning. The times that I see things that need to be done and I don't do them just build and build till I actually work. I've always thought work was a bad word. Something I so don't like doing. That makes it hard to think of art work as real work. I know my ex didn't. Anyway, the linen closet is next on the list of things that bother me most. And then the guest bathroom. I have few guests. So I rarely go in there. I've decided to make it a frou-frou room for just me. Really pretty. Since he doesn't use it.

Then back to the studio to redo some more things and to begin some more things and them to send some pics to the blog. Loves, Victorious Judy

I got Victor the Mealy Monster today and he is so adorable I have trouble calling him a monster. He will always get to keep his dolly too.

It is a wonderful day today. I feel better than I have in a long time and I hope everyone out there does too. Loves, Judy

I have to wait

I ordered Victor from MealyMonsterLand yesterday and I am beside myself with excitement. The characters of MML have such a lot of character that I enjoy each new one and am not tempted to compare it to the last one. I love to see the creativity that goes into the dolls and ?monsters? and look forward to seeing Victor in person.

Today is Wednesday. I can tell because the condos across the street are being mowed. It's no wonder I lose track of days in the Winter.

Hot here. I hate hot. I hate muggy. There, I am through with hate for the day.

I have to say hello to Nikki and wonder how hubby is doing. I took some time off from the creative process and the blog to read some superb books. I am back in spades. I've kept up with the wonderful things the artists are doing and now I plan to get back to business. So let's go.

Much love, Judy

Going for 100

I have picked up another couple of followers and I welcome them. I am the most fortunate of women. The blogs I follow show me a world of different women and men doing different things in life and being so smart about following their dreams. For some reason, my mind gets more ideas and less impetus than most. Well too bad. Here we go for today.

I am making lists of the things I want to do today and putting up notes.

I have finally cleaned(?) or straightened up the studio. I continue to add things to make the room more interesting for my work. I just yesterday bought an adorable MealyMonster. I can't wait till Victor arrives. I love looking at the Odd Dolls, The Fae, etc. But my dad was a civil engineer and I have a hard time creating something that isn't an attempt at a replica. The blogs are expanding my thinking.

I need some inspiration from those of you who have the artist's equivalent of writer's block. Anyone who has a regular go to place for inspiration, please let me know. I would like to find a niche. Preferably one that no one else has found.

Loves, Judy

Hip, Hip, Hooray

Today is the day. I put the computer in to the studio but it's on a table that is so loose it sways in the wind. So today I'm going to Staples and get a new table to put it on. I will have a stable computer and lots more work room.

The studio is still really disorganized. I have not been able to count organization as one of my strong suits. But here and now I am proclaiming that I will find a way.

I haven't been doing much work in the studio because it is a mess and there is cleaning to do first. But today is the day. I so look forward to making a dent in the mess and getting back to work. So today is the day. Loves, Judy

O happy day!!!!

I'm a kid with a new toy. Toys. Yup the nerd guy fixed everything. I can now use the computer in the studio, the laptop in the den, or this one in the office which is absolutely screaming fast. Wow. I would love to say the computer is just a periferal part of my life. I try not to lie. Every morning I get up, try to wake up and check the computer. And every morning I am glad that I have this blog to go to because the most interesting people are here. I just can't say enough about the bloggers. What a terrific way to start the day. Loves, Judy

I have decided

I have decided that there is nothing on earth that can make me mad like a computer that won't do what I want it to.Computers, supposed to save time, drive even the most even-tempered people nuts. Not that I know any even tempered people. So buy a computer. Try to get a game from old one to new one. 1 day and 1/2. Try to get the router to work so you can use your old computer. Nope. Got to use the new one that doesn't have all of the good stuff on it. Get a laptop. Hook it up to the modem to connect to the internet. Trying to get the thing ready for use in the studio. Nope. No hook-up. Is it the router or the modem. The liklihood of getting both the cable guy and the computer guy here at the same time is slim to none. So the computer guy is coming today to try again. Odds are he'll blame the cable guy. And then when the cable guy comes he'll blame the computer guy. Then I will have to pay the computer guy more to come back and work on the problem again. So even if I do have 3 computers in this house. One works. And it isn't mine. So I am evolving the list of words I say when angry to symbols because of course I have grandchildren and a really sensitive dog. I have decided progress isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Loves, Judy

Went to the Transformers movie today. With my Very Significant Other and best friend. I loved the movie. Science Fiction, Fantasy, action, drama. And some really cool vehicles. I did find one problem though. The head good Robot, Optimus Prime, died. Of course not for good. But I found I could be significantly worried about a robot as much as anything else. And I found that when I watch a movie, I get really involved. And I like that about me. Good day Judy
