camilla - how'd i do?

camilla - how'd i do?

i made this for aurora's new baby. i followed [or at least tried to] camilla's instructions that she gave on whip-up awhile back.

these are totally addicting to make. i want to make a smaller one now. maybe while i'm on the plane?

i'm sitting [at this ungodly hour - infomertials are on TV] and waiting for the shuttle to take me to the airport. i'm going to nashville.... to meet kathleen and hang my show with aurora at square foot .

there are a few reasons this all seems bitter sweet. i'm so so happy to finally see aurora again and meet kathleen AND meet shari face to face for the first time. she is coming down with T and a friend. it's hard to believe that tomorrow i can actually just SAY something to her.

but sadly we are the last show at square foot. and i'm also feeling as though i should be closer to home. if only i could be in 2 places at once - heck - if we're going to do that - than why not 4 or 5 huh?

more on the show [and nashville, etc] over the next few days as long as i have decent internet access....

happy happy new year to everyone.... and thanks for all the virtual hugs for my last post....

He's a keeper, or in this case a giver :) It was fun, wasn't it? I think it is like magic. There is nothing and suddenly...! He's very cute.

Happy new year lisa, you are one talented multi-tasking queen! I admire your energy and creativity, you never cease to amaze. Looking forward to hearing more about your meeting with shari and the show (the images from the website looks stunning) - yours and aurora's work go so well together. Best wishes! x

i love your little creature. i think you did VERY well. camilla will be proud. :)
i wonder if one day it will be possible for people to be in more than one place at once, at least in some sort of weird virtual way.
have a great trip!
it will be a great show.

I hope you have a great opening, Lisa! Definitely bittersweet to be the last show. I love the toxin-doilies. You and I need to find a way to have a show together on the theme of hybrids...

What an adorable creature! Love it!

perfectbound said...

just wanted to say you've really outdone yourself with this show! these pieces are amazing! if only i could purchase one or two (or six!).

dimethyl mercury, selenium bromide and MTBE are my favourites. i think... it's too hard to choose!

Hope its a grrrrreat new year for you, its certainly starting good. i read your blog always and somehow just feel like I want to hug you. Strange maybe but I am always exasperated by your energy, talent and enthusiasm but also want to say slow down, you make me feel tired! When dou you relax? Sending hugs and huge thanks for the energy that just somehow rubs off! xxx
