And all the pipe cleaner animals stood erect-- a fierce wall of nylon and wire defiance--
with one voice they exclaimed, "We shall not be silenced!"

Slow Progress...

I am sad to report that I have not had a chance to work on my Fuzzies in almost two weeks!! I've been traveling so much for work! Two weeks ago I was in Schaumburg, IL (I call it Scumburg during this time of the year because it's so darn cold over there). Last week I was in LA. This week, I'm finally back in SD. Monday is already over, and still no Fuzzies!! Boo-hoo. I have some new creations in mind that are begging for me to bring them to fruition, like a flamingo, a pink dinosaur, a giraffe, a seal pup (the white kind), and a frog.

Also, the San Diego County Fair is coming up, and I've been trying to think of themes that I could make a bunch of Fuzzies for, and put them in a diorama to submit in the arts and crafts competition. Maybe a farm scene to go with the general nature of a County fair? Or a zoo? So many ideas... Any suggestions?

I really wish we had 36 hour days so I could make time for crafts. Sometimes my day job gets in the way of my love for crafting. It's almost like the day job is a wife of 30 years who nags me endlessly to do take out the trash and do chores, and crafts are like the hot young secretary that I have a love affair with during my midlife crisis, who makes me feel alive again. Yeah, that's a pretty lame analogy...

Sharon, It sounds like you're extremely busy!! But it sounds like a "healthy" busy! I wanted to tell you that I've finished framing and matting the artwork I promised you as a gift (La Guitarra). I think you'll be pleased with it. I hoping by mid week I'll be able to get the proper supplies for shipping. I don't want it breaking on you, only having to send it back for another. Thank you for being so patient and waiting for it!! I'll send another message to you letting you know it's out the door!! Return home safely! Roger
