sweetness boo Originally uploaded by dressform.

a long but very hope-filled day!

this is my boo... it's so hard to leave her every morning.... she's very upset w/ the hours that i've been keeping of late. i'm sorry my sweet... soon we will have our days in the studio together again! i promise!

the day started out with me working on the wall piece. i went to stare at it after class yesterday.... it was like i had to attack.... so now there are 2 more clusters... it jumps from it's main wall to two others.... i painted in 2 more red doilies and mapped out another 3.... and pinned up some more too! wow. i'm feeling better though. i'm feeling like it might work. gosh i hope tomorrow goes well!!

after class i dashed to the city.... to meet another blogger... lisa ... YES! bird in the hand lisa! who draws and makes such lovely things [such a long list to covet: pillows, mod birds, mixed media collages....] we had burgers [it's funny how you never know who is a vegetarian... ] in the mission.... it was lovely! she is so engaging, smart, honest, and funny. she had laringitis and yet it seemed like we could have talked forever.... i can't wait for her show!! i can't wait to see more of her and her work!

i can't quite believe that i met 3 blog friends this week. i could really get used this....

and finally.....
living room :: westwall

amanda talked about "accidental" corners... which is such a great idea... but i took this photo earlier today and am stickin' to it.... even though it's not a corner... and there's nothing accidental about it.... if you want more info see it on flickr

oh! i wanted to thank maitreya of craftlog - one of the first blogs i fell in love with btw.... she mentioned the why we blog idea on the mega blog whip up the other day.... i want to extend an invitation to anyone who happens to stop by and would like to be added to the list. email me and let me know about a new post or an old post that is relevant! the more the merrier! lisasolomondotcom AT gmail dot com

i still want to talk about "talent"... but it will have to wait for another post.... i have ammo!

I am glad you are feeling better about the wall - doing helps!
How is that you are always so crazy busy!
I hope you get time soon to hang out with your dogs!! Working on stuff in the studio!

Can't wait to hear what you are going to say on talent and how that wall is going to look.

Love that corner. How did you find that vintage cabinet that actually fit a modern TV?

Can't wait to see your wall...

i love all your corners - as i said on flickr I hope there'll be many more! :)
the tv cabinet (and the lamp!) are fabulous - so special.
and the doily wall...i'm really looking forward to this!
(i started my email to you but we are at my parents right now...not much time to concentrate so it will take a little longer...but i would love to meet too and play kimono dress-up with you! :) )
