Umm... I'm not sure about the hair.

But the important thing is that I MADE MY DUE DATE!!!


Next up: Quilt store commissions... Put down the comic books, pick up the cutesy...

First one has to be done this weekend.


Thursday, July 29, 2010


Ok so it's not QUITE done. But it sure is CLOSE!!! All that is left is my hair and my shoe!!!


Monday, July 26, 2010


Alright. The new due-date is this Friday!!! I am going to steal my boyfriends computer and software if I have to!!! ... or possibly just sneak onto my Mom's Gigantic Graphics Computer of Awesome.

The date is now JULY the 26th!!!

I must have PROOF OF WORKMANSHIP by JULY the 30th!!!

Hold me to it!!

Yes. Here it is Saturday, July 24th and there is no beautiful high resolution piece of digital artwork upon which you could feast your eyes.


1) Graphics card failing.
2) Mom in the hospital so am dog-sitting.

You may proceed to be furious with me though if you wish. I certainly am annoyed with myself already. One due date I give myself and I can't even make that!


I will get it up as soon as possible!

Update on that DUE DATE

So. My computer (a Gateway I got in 2007... this should tell you something right off the bat) has decided that it would like to refuse to work with Photoshop CS4 anymore.

In fact... I am sitting here watching in slightly horrified bemusement as my computer reboots for the second time today after Photoshop kicked it's ass.

And now that it is rebooted, it's about to crash again.

I think I broke it.. :(

HOWEVER WILL I MAKE MY DUE DATE!!! I know you are all on the EDGE OF OUR SEATS!!!

Stay tuned....

... Dot cooooooooom

Ok so.... I'm going to make a list in this entry of all the options I feel are acceptable for my piano studio website. (It has been pointed out to me that this might bring more of the type of student that just wants to learn the "basics." At this point I will take it.) or (Not professional? I dunno. It could be fun) or... (seems pretty long...) (someone suggested to me but someone already has that one! Argh!) ? .. ? ........

And that's all I've got at the moment. I really am not crazy about any of these options. I guess I'm still waiting for my lightbulb. :( Comments? Suggestions?

Alright, followers. Few though you may be.

I expect you to be absolutely FURIOUS with me if I do not post up a fully-colored if not finished version of Chris's 2009 Christmas Present by THIS FRIDAY. This Friday means JULY TWENTY-SECOND in the year TWO THOUSAND AND TEN.

For those of you that don't read, that's 7-22-2010.

Yes. It is a Christmas present 7 months too late... but JoAnns is having a Christmas in July sale so I figure I'm off the hook.

EDIT: um. Friday is actually the 23rd. Sweet!! It's like getting an extension!

I don't know about most bloggers, but I totally had a really awesome post worked up in my head while I was driving around today. And then I eagerly sat down here to craft my paragraphs of EPIC ADVICE.... and it's completely gone.

Every sentence that I snickered at all by myself has fluttered out my left ear and been lost on the wind. Or maybe NPR shoved it out. That happens when people argue deafeningly about what is Racist and what is Not Racist.

... OK so back to the subject I was going to talk about....


I have approached a point in my development as a Piano Studio (all by my onesies!) Where I am in need of a Website. A veritable DOT COM.

There are quite a few options for making this happen. ... ok actually not that many but a few... or just two. I could teach myself the entirety of HTML and Flash in NO TIME. Or I could just be lazy and use software that will do it for me. In the long run, writing my own code will be cheaper but paying more per month to have the software do it for me keeps my To-Do List from Exploding.



No wait I just need to get back to work. If anyone has Dot Com Advice, please leave it for me to pick up later. I feel a bit overwhelmed!

Peer Pressure


I have added calendar-like gadgets there on the right hand side for your viewing pleasure.

I have yet to figure out how the heck it works.

FEAR NOT! I shall do my best to bombard you with my hectic life!


Things to Do

Well. Here I am, blogging finally... I resisted this sort of nonsense for a long time.

But I find myself with so many things to do that I need a way to keep myself accountable for all of the due-dates that I will be setting.

How many things am I doing? Let's count, SHALL WE!?

1) Finishing a piece for my boyfriend
2) Working on a comic book with some friends
3) Making concept artwork for an online video game
4) Commissions for a local quilt shop
5) Teaching piano lessons (technically this is my meal-ticket... maybe I should have put that first)
6) Making concept artwork for a trading card game. I haven't even started.
7) Writing a novel.
8) Not sleeping.
9) Reading too many books.
10) Trying to get accepted into a couple of music teacher associations (Wait... I should have put this up earlier...)
11) Teaching Music Together (
12) ... Forgetting everything else that I know is also on my to-do list.


13) Oh yeah. Forgot laundry. And eating. And not sleeping summore.

Well you can follow me or not, if you are interested in any of these things. I just gotta stay on top of things.
