Last night April and I got our first order for a skirt through the website (everything up until now has been less "official")and I'm very excited about it. It's got me anxious to be able to sit down and do a bit of creating again, as it's been a few weeks since I've been able to do much of that, outside of my writing. I'm thinking of getting a mini silkscreen (a Gocco machine, I believe)to help with my card making. Will allow me to go much further than I've been able to with just paper, scissors and glue thus far.
The writing is going well. Dad liked the first fifty pages, but did any of us really expect that he wouldn't? He's obligated. But I appreciate the support nonetheless, and am moving forward. I think it's finally truly started to become a habit. I sit down every night and do a little bit, and if I don't it feels strange. This isn't to say that I'm not one vacation away from falling off the novel writing bandwagon, but so far, so good.
It's Spring in California and I feel happy.
