I'm not sure if I had a chance to post my second polymer bead, so here it is! I was happy to see that the first bead I made, featuring a bird, sold on Etsy last week. I see that Etsy is preparing a new version of their auction site, so I'll have to wait until the transition is done before uploading this new bead.
Tonight is Caitlin's big concerto competition. She is so excited. She is playing the Kabalevsky Concerto, Movement No. 3. It will be a thrill to see her all dressed up in her long gown. I'll take some photos so you can see my sweet, wonder girl. We are so proud of her.
I was able to garden a bit this morning in the front circle bed. I'll have to see what winter floral choices are at the nursery for the holiday season. My shockingly bright, orange zinnias took me through the humid, sweltering heat of summer and into November, so they are a keeper in my journal for next year. Along with the marigolds, it was quite a show!

Whhhhewwww! I'm going to bed to read some home and hospitality magazines... like preparing turkeys and getting in the holiday mood. I've had enough ALGEBRA for a while. :)))

Acrylics and Pastels on 2.5 x 3.5 Bristol.
Tonight is study night. I'm glad I treated myself to some artistic creative time this past weekend, because I don't think I'll be getting any paints out in the next few days. Caitlin has a big concerto competition this Saturday, and I have the GRE on Friday. She also needs to prepare for an AP Biology exam in the morning. We plan on grabbing an easy dinner and sprawling out on the bed for some brain cramming.
Somehow the laundry needs to get done too... and the dusting... and the general "pick up the stuff" issues, yadda, yadda, and so it goes. :) My husband does the grocery shopping for me every Monday, so I can't complain. We used to do that chore together, but that was before I began working full-time. He was an angel to keep the groceries on his "to do" list. It sure helps. :)

I woke up this morning with the intention of studying for the GRE that I will be taking very soon, but I dug out some paint tubes and pastels instead. This was a much better choice, as I haven't done anything artistic since my last journal entries when our school went on a field trip to the science museum.
Working full-time at the Episcopal academy has distracted me from creating in my studio! But today I made small art cards, since they were easily finished in one sitting. I was inspired by some of the papers and postage stamps I had in my collage bin.
I hope all my art friends are doing well. I feel so out of the blogging "groove". I wish I had time to cruise through some of my favorite websites, but tonight we are going out to a German restaurant in Sanford, so I must get to the laundry, housework, and general weekend duties that are inevitable. :)
