Insert Catchy Title Here

I've felt a little crazy eyed like this octopus!
Getting back on track slowly but surely.  Waiting on the insurance company.  I've got all my ducks in a row and sent everything off to the insurance adjuster.  What a pain.  I'll have to wait until next week to update that nightmare. 

Sleep deprived and jumpy, I'm still trying to make art the priority!  I printed my Print of the Month subscriptions yesterday and mailed them off today!  Yay! I'll have them online Monday, but wanted the subscribers to see them first as they open their mail!  I'm so thankful for the people who supported me on my etsy page! Between that and my family I did in fact reach my deductible goal!  I'm amazed at the kindness of my friends, family and even a few complete strangers!  A million bazillion thank yous! 

A couple of dear friends took me to a delicious dinner last night to take my mind off things. At dinner I shared how humbling this entire experience has been.  Though I think I said humiliating at first.  Which isn't too far off.  At 41 I never thought I'd need to ask for help.  Aside from house or car loans, the only time I remember asking for assistance was once when I was 18, I borrowed $25 from my parents for gas until payday.  During my divorce I did rack up a lot of credit card debt that I never want to do again!  I had my first job at 12 and worked almost consecutively since 16, except for a couple of short stints.  I worked full time while taking 12 to 18 credits during college.  Any way, you get the point.  I've taken care of myself, and it's really weird to struggle and require assistance. 
I love red bikes!






So, art!  I've also been hand coloring my artist proofs!  I forgot how fun it is to color! I'm trying to get a larger selection posted to Etsy. I've had some technical difficulties since the programs and some of the photos I had ready were on my laptop.  I'm improvising!  I'll leave you with a couple of photos! 
Shouldn't all bikes have tassels?

February 14th is coming!









Thanks again for all the support!  Financial and emotional! It truly does help knowing there are people out  there looking out for me in the interwebs!
