It's been a while

Good Saturday Morning,

I haven't checked in recently, because I've just simply been too busy.  I've slipped hair sticks into the equation as best I could over the past few months, we do after all have to pay the bills.  As many of you know, I've been concurrently working on a new mixed media design that we're calling the Lord and the Lion.

For a number of different reasons, I felt compelled to move in this direction, and it began in early January.  It's taken me several months and 9 prototypes to figure out how all of the pieces fit together, but today they finally do.  The prototypes are now affixed throughout the 3 shop areas, and I can't go anywhere without one of them looking at me, which can either be a good thing, or a bad thing given one's temperament  at any given time.

Last night was the annual Art and Hors D'oeuvres event held at Village Presbyterian Church.  There were approximately 600 attendees, or at least that's how many the kitchen staff prepared for.  That had been my target for the past month, and we just barely made it.  It didn't help much given that my computer was hijacked and held for ransom mid week... that wasn't a particularly fun day.  Thursday however was also disturbing when I discovered that all of the Lord and the Lion artwork was destroyed in the hack.  Fortunately I have a decent memory.

I'm back working on sticks again now, as we had series numbers 002, 003, and 004 on display, and then back home tucked safely away.

Just thought I'd share a few photos with you.  Have a great Saturday.
