Welcome to Box World

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Welcome to Box World.  I had grand intentions of taking you through my moving saga.  Sadly, I have been crazy busy actually living the saga.  Besides, it hasn’t been all that exciting. 

Box Maze

The movers have finished the first day of packing and managed to pack most of the things I had put aside to make breakfast for myself this week.  Luckily, Starbucks has oatmeal.   I had a flash of feeling like this is part of what it might feel like to be in a hoarder’s house.  I feel I am  navigating a maze and can’t see around the high stacks of boxes.

 

My dogs are getting panicky about all the changes and my Great Dane, Lucy the Wonder Dog, has started chewing up anything she can get that gigantic mouth on in protest to all of this upheaval.  Yesterday it was disposable razors and deoderant.  She just chewed the wrappers and was not injured.  The poor old girl is a bit of a mess right now. 

 

An Extremely Stressed Out Lucy

I have a day of relative peace today (thank you!) and the packers are back tomorrow, at which point I will lose my electronics.  Tuesday and Wednesday they load the truck and Thursday I hit the road with the dogs to make the trek cross country.  Nothing like 2000+ miles/3 days in a car with 2 dogs.  My husband joins me after the first day of the drive in Lincoln, NE.   It should be interesting.  I have packed audiobooks and (I hope) my sense of humor and adventure.   

 

Thanks to all those people who purchased work from me this last month.  I sold 7 pieces!  I sincerely appreciate your support of my work.

See you in California!

Adventures in Moving

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Well, I have sold my longarm and am in negotiations to sell our house, I’ve found a great place to live in San Jose.  Things are rolling along, but are taking a ton of time and energy.  I haven’t managed to create a sale page for my work, as I’d hoped.  For one thing, I can’t figure out how to get the Paypal buttons into the body of my blog post.  I will not have time to get a proper sale page up for another week.

I actually have about 6 or 7 pieces that aren’t up on the site yet.  Theyare experiments with mixing images on plexiglass and quilted material.  Half are framed cave images and half are very small tree pieces that sit on the table. I’ll try to get those posted over the next few days.

In the meantime, if you are interested in a piece of my work, email me and I will tell you the regular price and the sale price.   I basically price my work at $1.50 per square inch, so sale price will be $.75 per square inch.  Pieces with metal are priced higher.   Everything I’m selling will be discounted 50% until I move to California (August 4th).  There are a few pieces I’m not selling at this time:  Herons, Cave Series Horses and Lascaux Bulls.  Anything else is 50% off+shipping.  Buy more than 1 piece and I will throw in domestic shipping.  Images can be found here

I have higher resolution and detail shots of all my pieces.  I am happy to send them upon request.
