Imogen Heap

A day at home

Decided to stay home today and get some much needed sleep and work on some projects.
This is one of my pieces called "Meet". The line is from a Sylvia Plath poem which for the life of me the title escapes me.
Checked my email today and was very excited to get an email flyer from Cindy who owns "Queen of Tarte".
I was introduced to her wares at the June flea market at Willow Nest in Washougal. Her work is fabulous. I have included her in my list of favs.

Christmas is coming!

So I began just a bit early this year. I took down the Halloween ceiling and up with the Winter white ceiling. This ceiling is over my dining room table. It changes with the season, holiday, event, etc.
I can't wait for Christmas this year. I am usually just ragged by the time the 25th hits. I pledge not to let myself do that to myself. I will plan things better so that I may enjoy the season more.
I try so hard to stay away from the malls and find quaint shops to spend my money. I plan to make a few gifts. Massage oils and cupcakes. Gorge then lube up! I can't wait to design the label for the oil. And a few art pieces for my oldest daughter Elisabeth.
Got my husband one of those turntables that have a USB thingy to plug into the computer so he can begin to take all his albums and make CDs or direct to his IPOD and there is a program with an equalizer dodad. Can you tell I don't know much about of this stuff??!! So here comes the King Crimson, Marillion, etc. etc. CDs. We don't listen to much of the same music....he is still trying to get me to appreciate his. He's a musician so he so analyzes everthing he listens to. I just like to have fun and not think about it too much.
