round and round she goes

I think I'm buried under paper and pixels. I've been working on a lot of new illustrations for cards and other paper things (like another birthday calendar, perhaps?) and I've really been having so much fun. My hand seems to be cramping under the strain, but I've got the very scary One of a Kind show coming up in October plus another craft fair or two for the holidays, not to mention my etsy shop. All of this on top of my day job and I even managed to squeeze in a trip to visit my family back in Ontario. Phew! Where can I get off this merry-go-round?

But I am managing to take a few breaks. The other night we started watching a dvd that we got from the library: Cinema 16, short films from Europe (the US ed.). Not all of them are amazing, but most of them are pretty great. I LOVED the short film Wasp by Andrea Arnold. Every note was brilliant, perfect. You can watch a it on YouTube here. Roy Andersson's World of Glory, Lynne Ramsay's Gasman, Toby MacDonald's Je t'aime John Wayne, and Run Wrake's Rabbit also fit into the awesome category.

I hear you, definitely. Ever since I got organized the last few weeks, I don't really have time for Twitter or LJ. BTW, it's Tricia from both. Hah!

Congrats on all the great work coming out and being recognized lately too.

Hurray for you! The One of a Kind Show is a tough one to get into here in TO!! I tried to get into it a few years back and was told that the jewellery category had already met it's quota. I hope your cards make a killing!!
