Still Chasing Fireflies

My sister Sally and husband Jim–of Chicken-gate 08 fame–rode for home on their Harley this morning. I will miss them–they are easy houseguests. Sally and I have so many things in common–crafts, especially.

It’s Friday, and I’ll be working over the weekend, but also visiting my cousin in the hospital and entertaining my friends Jean and Kurt for dinner tonight. I’ve set aside some time for art, too, and limited myself to One Project. I’ll be making polymer clay transfers, using T-shirt paper and plain ole Sculpey, and trying out the new cutters I had custom-made. The keepers will end up in collages and on ATCs.

As I’ve mentioned, I suffer from a severe case of Firefly Syndrome! (If you’re new to the blog, that means I’ll be working on a project and suddenly get a (seemingly) brilliant idea for another, drop everything, and rush off to try it out.) I have curtailed that tendency somewhat by making myself write down ideas in a memo book, but I’m still inclined to work on three or four things at once. (In everything but my writing, that is. I’ve never been able to write more than one book at a time, but I DO get ideas for other books, and I scribble those down immediately. I’ve learned the hard way that no matter how convinced I am that I’ll remember, I won’t.)

I’ve been a little under the weather recently, but feeling much better now.

Have a good weekend, my friends.
