Goin' back to Cali....

Some silk-screened cards that your Uncle has been working on lately.
Good morning, Kids! Just a wee update on your Uncle. I am heading off for Napa in a short while and have much to get done this morning. It's my friend Sarah's birthday (Holla!) this weekend and we're all going down to visit our friends Jon & Georgina in St. Helena. It will be a blast once every one in the group gets past their jealousy over me, my model good looks, superstar talents, and that silly little trust fund of mine! (Oh lordy...don't I wish!) Seriously, should be a great time. Will be loving up the California sunshine and leaving the NW drizzle to the rest of the stay-put population!

I started a new job which makes juggling the blogging thing a new challenge. Also, have been doing some silkscreen printing again to get back into the swing of things and to plot whatever that next move will be...whenever that will be! (You're just going to have to bear with me! Me and time-management are still working on our relationship.) The evidence is above for your perusal.

So I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, Kids. I will return to the blogosphere on Tuesday morning but will wish you sunshiny days until then! Mwah!

    magstermash...thanks for stoppin' by! So you're somewhere in the Bay Area? Yes indeed the weather was lovely! Joyous! Hope you're having weather nicer than our typical downpour :( to get caught up! Mercy! Are you back to your hive yet? Thanks for the sweet remarks and encouragement! Hopefully there will be more work shown here at some point? Such a time juggle. How do people get it all done? Oy!

    monica...thanks! You are all so sweet with the praise! I have a few Xmas card designs. They're leftovers from my former card making days. Want to do some art prints and experiment more with printing fabric. So the card-making days are numbered for certain. The job is nice but the pay is a little hard to swallow. I guess I should be thankful that I've got a job in the this economy though. And with some great people so that helps. Thanks, Monica.

    Joslyn...Napa is loverly. But you seem to get around okay yourself? Always nice to take that break isn't it? Thanks for stoppin' by!

    Tammy...thanks for your compliments! Needless to say, one rarely tires of them ;) Nicely put and certainly appreciated :)

    I know I say it a lot, Kids...but thanks for all your comments! I really appreciate your efforts just to give a few props or a sweet "hello". Thanks :)
