Experienced total rejection for all 4 designs.
Finished a book project that I was worried about, 1 week early.
Designed, created and inventoried over 50 new pieces for a store.
Searching for a new 6th grade curriculum.
Read an actual book on Florida's native people.
Designed a new collection for a new account I hope to get. 
Making new friends for both Mike & I and the kids.
What I am not getting done;
My own book.

Serious housework.

But really, over all, a very productive month.

  4. You're so beautiful! Thanks for sharing a picture of your lovely self. Looks like a wonderful summer! Sun! Sand! (outside) Water to splash in! That flowering tree in your front yard looks amazing. I'm always so knocked out by the kind of plants and trees that grow in warm places. Congrats to you on cranking out the work! And on taking good care of yourself.

  11. Holy Cow woman - You've got a ton of stuff done! Now I'm getting off the computer to sneak some studio time in. Congrats on all that you're doing - and don't sweat the stuff you're not. There will be time here and there (that pool looks great!)

  12. Great pictures, good to see you all enjoying Florida, and hooray for no more wound dressing. Looks like your summer is off to an awesome start, good luck with all those things that you needed to get done and I do not mean the housework. Check out 'The Land Remembered' if you need a book on the pioneers in FL, which one are you reading? Have a great summer.

  15. You're getting more done than not, so don't despair. Besides, you and your family look happy and healthy and that's huge. It makes me happy to read your posts. And look into the occasional "maid" for the serious housecleaning!
