Pictureless Post

Ack! Sorry that I don't have any pictures. I was enjoying the brief break in the heat this past weekend. Now it's getting cranked up again. Yuck! I am so looking forward to fall. But right now, it is what it is. Hot. Summer. I went to my local farmer's market here in town and picked up veggies to make Ratatouille. I've always wanted to try it ever since watching the animated movie with the same name. I found an easy recipe from a pal on Facebook and decided it was now or never. I do have to say that all the prep work and cooking time was so darn worth it! My apartment smelled oh so yummy. Now I just have to find an easy bread recipe and make my own bread. This will most definitely be added to the fall soup and stew line.

I will have things ready for the fair tonight and take pics for a post tomorrow. Once again, a teaching job fell through. I asked myself what the heck is going on? Yes, I cried. That was suppose to help out with bills in the fall. But I got over it. So for right now, I will put teaching on the back burner and concentrate on making figures. Just dive right in and do it. After Saturday. I am getting stronger and more determined to succeed at my art.

Oh, by the way, I got my second commission since quitting. Yay me!

that is right-hooooray you!!! Plus- you are cooking and I know you are getting exercise too. Keep plugging at the teaching--I think it just might take some time to break into. I don't think it has anything to do with you as much as maybe the time of year- people busy with summer things and then the fact that it has been so incredibly hot- even up here in Minnesota. I wish I could have popped over for some Ratatouille- it sounds sooooo good.

Thanks Kim. I'm going to put teaching on hold and concentrate on making things. If teaching comes out of that, great. It takes a lot of time to come up with a project, make sure people can do it, get supplies, and then market it and wait for response. If teaching is going to happen, I'll let it happen in due course. Right now I have to create to live. I wish you were here for some Ratatouille and sour dough bread too. One day my friend, one day.

Tiny Faces

Yep, some things are getting worked on. The full body doll pins have faces. They are pretty tiny but I think they are cute. Tomorrow I look ...
