the best laid plans...

Life has a way of turning on a dime. This weekend started out being super fun and turned into one of the worst weekends ever.

Things started out nice: horseback riding, clay play day, a wedding to go to on Sunday...

and then ... my sister's boyfriend died. He was only 20. At first it was considered a suicide, but most of us have determined it to be an accident. It had to be. Believe me when I say, there was nothing suicidal about him. There was no goodbye letter. He was making plans for the weekend and for the rest of his life. He was going to propose to my sister. He was practically family already.

It has hit us all hard. He was loved by everyone. I still can't believe he's actually gone. You still expect him to suddenly call. I still have his number.

The abruptness of it all has left us in shock. This wasn't the way things were supposed to turn out.

Life's lessons come at you fast and though I don't know the details... don't play with guns, nothing happy can come of them.

Needless to say, I hope to have some stuff up soon, but there's a lot of grief I've got to deal with first.

On the Horizon

Well, things are moving along. With a major over haul of this blog (format wise) and some major life changes (for the good!), I'm hoping to update more frequently.

Good news! I have a new computer! It's very spiffy and I can finally upgrade to CS4 which will be a major change from CS, hopefully for the better.

Should be some new work coming soon!
On my plate of things to do:
  • mushroom dancer series
  • Scotsgrove website
  • Wedding stuff (invites for example)
  • finish my "Fish Lord" (ha!)
  • play with clay and make something pretty (perhaps cake toppers?)
  • work on "Wolfskin" mini webcomic
  • and start daily sketches (but first I need a scanner!)
Wow. Didn't know I had so much stuff I wanted to do!

In general- I want the blog to document my creative process however slow or sketchy (pun intended) it may be. ^.^
