The First Assignment!

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, the Seven Shabby Sisters have received their first mission from their artist "Charlie" (please someone out there understand the Charlie's Angels reference)! I can not wait to start on this! Unfortunately I can not work on it tomorrow (have to take the daughter to the state finals for soccer all day) so I will have to wait until Saturday to dig in. Sadness, desolatioin, frustration! I want to play right now! But alas, I had to work for my business today (for those of you that don't know I own my own company called Leading The Future and I train non-profits, do grant writing, consult and do community development work). I love it, and it pays for all of my art supplies, but sometimes working for a living interfers with my artistic endeavors! But I work from home(except when I am traveling for a job) and can set my own hours pretty much, so I can't really complain.

Anyway, you guys will have to check out what mystery art we make! I can't wait to be able to share all of our designs with you guys! Can you tell that I am excited?

On a different note, I had to travel for a job today to a part of the state I had never been to before. The drive was amazing! Deep valleys, fast running rivers, waterfalls, all framed by the wonderful, bright, vibrant hues of fall leaves! Oh, I wish I would have had my camera. I know better than to travel without it. I so wish I could have captured the beauty before winter takes over the scene. Serves me right for not taking the camera. I have a great digital camera, but it is so bulky that I hate to take it with me. I would love to have one that I could fit into my purse for just such occasions. If anyone has a suggestion for a good one that fits those requirements, let me know. I will write more soon. Sorry for the short post, but so much is going on in my life right now I don't have a lot of time to write right now. i will try to post pics and catch up this weekend.

Love your studio pics- I am envious-looks like you have a lot of room. There are pics of my space on my blog but you'd have to go back to my Aug or Sept posts. I love your idea of the Seven Shabby Sisters. I'm going to have to blog about that. Love your vintage fashion ATCs!! What did you do with the gift bag?
