You guys. There are BUDS on the TREES and the SNOW is GONE (pretty much) and there is a LIGHT AT THE END OF THE EFFINGG TUNNELLLLLL!!!!!!!! It's that final scene where the hero shows up and everyone gets rescued and nobody ended up dying.
WINTER. IS. OVER.
I am literally sitting here doing a dance in my chair right now that would surely embarrass the crap out of my kids. This winter was like every winter where it started off seeming like it wasn't going to be so bad and ended up being like a rotten tooth that hurts so much that you've got your crafting pliers in your mouth and you're just going to yank that sh*t yourself.
PS: It is looking like there may be some bad language throughout this blog. I don't know how much, as I am just typing stuff as it comes, but so far it isn't looking good - sorry, Mom.
I know a bunch of you have already seen it, but my noggin took a completely crazy turn this year and started producing super weird art. Like the kind of stuff where you see and and are like, "what the F*CK IS that?!!!" I promise you I haven't been holed up in my living room in backwoods New England doing 'shrooms with my toddlers as the snow and sleet piled higher and higher. That's just my brain. It really is that warped.
Here are some examples of my random products that started in my head as "cute little fuzzy creatures".....
There you have it.
This winter clearly had some substantial influence over my creative juices. I am so happy that it is over. I would like to just skip back to 2 months ago when I was writhing on the floor like some dying larvae in despair and say, "I TOLD YOU IT WAS GOING TO BE OKAY, DIDN'T I???"
Everyone go download the latest Kenny Chesney/David Lee Murphy song "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", buy a #DunkinDonuts iced coffee with extra extra, roll your windows down and start sucking up that sunshine.
Sidenote: if you live anywhere near Manchester, NH and are curious about glass fusion art go check out Monte Verde Art Glass Studio - the guys that own it are hands down the most wonderful people I have come into contact with this year. They will teach you fabulous things about glass work and make you feel comfortable with it even if you have ZERO experience with using art as a medium (like me) before you sign up for a class. They are in the process of moving studio spaces, but I am confident they will find something very soon (get on it, Moishe!!!) and will be happy to hear from any of you happy people.
All right. Time's up. I've got to put my mom pants on and get back to scraping snot off of faces and breaking up fights over who gets to play with the bacon chew toy next.
WHAT. IS. LIFE.!?!
We made it. Good job!! Go inhale some vitamin D.
