cumulus, artstravaganza, & sfo

it’s August 10th. the tenth, i say. can you believe that summer is nearly over ? not only will kids be returning to school soon, many ‘kids’ i know are just about to go off to their first year of college. wait, what ? and two months from now i will be safely nestled in my newly rented room or studio apartment in San Francisco. wait, what ?

so, i hereby admit insanity. i am working my tail off. i am barely sleeping. i am busily doing things like drawing (er, watercoloring) clouds for a facebook application (see above), packing my apartment (see below), and saving every last penny that i earn.

in the eight weeks i have remaining in Seattle i will: house sit, work two summer camps, work a music festival, house sit again, pack my entire apartment, organize not one but two garage sales (this is all on top of my daily grind of riding horses four times a week, working retail on the weekends, and lest i forget this little studio business i am continuing to breathe life into – for which i have two insanely time consuming projects pending). yes, i’m a little weary.

last week i drove down to Portland, OR (in a record time of 2.5 hours considering i was battling rush hour because someone may or may not have overslept her alarm by approximately twelve hours) to partake in a sort of flea market meets art market set up (in Blitz Pearl’s parking lot :: Thank You Jay !) for Portland’s First Thursday Art Walk. i sold a few pieces and a few prints, stayed up all night with a great and talented friend of mine (Thank You Jackie!), and drove home the following afternoon. then i left for San Francisco ’cause i’m crazy like that.

i’ll be back to the grind come friday evening once i’ve landed, gathered my keys for house sitting, and (hopefully) enjoyed a [insert alcoholic beverage here]. i’ve said too much, i bid yee a fine evenin’ from a foggy town.

and now for the news :: re-lo-cat-ing

ree-loh-keyt

verb (used without object) :: to change one’s residence or place of business; to move

so, the rumor (if you’ve even heard it) is true. i’m moving. to san francisco. at the beginning of october. it’s time for a change of scenery. i’m stoked. and the best part of having one’s own business means it is entirely portable. so, i’ll be a little busy until then.. whilst i save money, work my jobs, and pack up my apartment :: one piece at a time.
