five of me

opening reception November 8th,2007 6:30 until 8:30 p.m.
at Candystore

It is better to be busy than not...but this busy? I wish I could split into five people right now. All with their own specific responsibilities and they would list like this.

1. Artist (maker)
2. Accountant
3. Graphic Designer
4. Office Assistant
5. Studio Assistant

I am managing to doing it all and somewhere in my mind, nestled between the to do lists and the piled up laundry, I keep whispering to myself that this won't kill me and that it is all good. Yes it is good and I am so happy for it but the down side to doing it all myself is that it becomes very difficult to do everything well and with all the attention every single (and very important) task demands. I've learned this lesson this past week the hard way, by making costly mistakes and having to clean up the mess that they created. Ugh!


With that I want to end this on a positive note with one thing that did get knocked off the to do list for this week and that is my invitation (see above) for my upcoming show at Candystore on November 8th. I hope that those of you that are in the area will mark it on your calendars and come on by. It is sure to be a fun party and I would love to see you there!

By the way my 2008 Calendars are still available so check them out here!

I hear ya! It would be so nice to be able to have all those things attended to by others who can give it their full attention.

Your opening announcement looks great! Wish I could be there.

so so empathizing with the 5 of me desire. actually just 2 would be nice... one could read and take notes and the other could go for long walks and eat pastries :)

When you figure out how to clone yourself, will you share the secret with your blog readers? I need it badly...

The invitation looks great by the way!

Yep, I suspect you are not alone in your wish to split, at times, into 5 people.

Splitting would be very good. Would love to see your show, but live on the East Coast now. I forwarded the invite to a friend who works in the city - hopefully she can stop in.

looks like cloning may not be such a bad idea after all...;) thanks for all the love and well wishes friends!

lovely invite. I hope to make it. My dad comes from Ireland that afternoon, so I may be accompanied by a jet-lagged, 70-year-old Irishman! He will love you!

Oh dear. I lack words. I'm completely breathless by your stuff. I first saw your drawings/collages (that's when the hyperventilation started ;-) and then I saw the plates. I think it's fair to say I'm in love with the beauty of what you make. Is it ok if I link to your blog from mine? :)--C
