Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!
Yes, I have been a slacker on this blog, but I promise to try to do better in the future.

So, what’s happening this weekend?
Well, a lot, actually.  I’m going to be working out of our Firm’s Pittsburgh office next week, so I will need to leave sometime Sunday afternoon to drive over and check into my hotel.   I’m looking forward to the get-away.  I love to travel – even if it’s for work, so I can’t wait.  I’ll miss my dogs, but it will be nice to have the entire bed to myself without two dogs and a cat wallowing all over me all night long.

Creative things …
I’m working on more www.chriscaffery.com cancer bracelets and other guitar and violin string projects.

Oh, and the Lenovo Yoga 2-in-1 tablet/laptop thingie that I ordered is supposed to arrive today, so I’ll be taking that with me.  I can’t wait to start messing around with the drawing and painting programs on there.

So far it has been a huge disaster, but I’m taking my watercolor stuff with me and hope to catch several YouTube tutorials in my downtime at my hotel.

Tomorrow I will be visiting my Mom, since I won’t be able to visit her Sunday like normal.  And Tammy is spending the night, so who knows what that will entail.

Oh, and, the cabin for my 3-day “Disconnect from Society” weekend is booked and I am SO looking forward to that in two weeks!

Finally Friday – 2/9/18 – What’s On Tap?

What’s on tap?
Not a whole lot.  It’s snowy and cold outside, and well – I just don’t function very well when it’s under 75 degrees outside.

I am working on a few craft projects:
I’m finishing up a New Baby Boy Mini Album commissioned by a lady I met in November.  Here are a couple pictures of some of the pages.  I will post a complete review of the finished album.

I’m also working on a jewelry order.
One of my musician friends – Mr. Chris Caffery of Trans-Siberian Orchestra –  saves all his guitar strings from the TSO tours and then I make bracelets out of them.  He then sells them on his website.  Check them out in his web store here … www.chriscaffery.com.

And I’ve been playing around with an art journal.
I have never done mixed media before, and certainly not water color, so it is a very steep learning curve for me.  I have thrown away 98% of the pages, but here are a couple I’ve kept.  I will be doodling around in this journal some more if I have time.

Other than that …
I also have some laundry to do – which I probably won’t do.  And I’ll visit my Mom!  

Have a great weekend everyone!
