I could promise I'll be starting all over with a renewed goal of blogging more frequently, but I'm afraid I  might be lying if I said that.  Daily entries were out of the question, and weekly ones, while completely doable, don't happen much either.  My blog is more like an annual report, right?  Whatever!  Does it really matter?  The important thing is, I'm still creating.... things.  Lots of things.  And true to my diagnosis, they are varied and completely sporadic.  Months ago, I recapped much of my art, especially the current pieces.  Then I had a little showing, and have done very little actual artwork since.  Oh, I guess there was the companion piece to 'The Fan', entitled 'The Other Fan'.

But then I got focused on making bracelets for the holidays.  They have been selling really well, and I might have to continue making them well into next year.

So, I'm about to embark on more chicken coop details.  That involves sawing lumber, drilling holes, screwing wood together, or attaching with hinges, angle plates, attaching hardware cloth, etc.  I have a couple problem roosters that occasionally need quarantining, so they'll have new cages for those episodes of 'time out'. 

I also get to finish a drywall project in the house, finish building a platform bed for our California King mattress, finish building an accent fence and decorative planting bed in the yard, finish knitting a scarf, and THEN start my next piece of artwork.  See?  I didn't even take credit for starting the drywall project, platform bed, accent fence, landscaping, and scarf.  I started most of those things since my last blog entry, so I defensively mention it now!  I did stuff!  I just didn't tell you about them.  Wow, I'm feeling punchy.  Maybe because I'm watching a Lewis C.K. special on Netflix.  Hmmm.

Anyway, I'm gonna create something else now, and I'm not going to talk about blog resolutions for the New Year.  I won't make any promises.  I'll check in sometime... don't know when.
