Happy June 4 !

Here it is June already!
  I have not posted recently or arted  lately either
 because we were moving and all the stuff, stress and strength and stamina
Not making something  artistic out of little tends to makes me a bit crabby as well. 
We have been moving /moved our selves  up the road, and stuff and lastly Ruby the cat, who's paws we buttered  first night so she would not dash back to the old house.
I feel a new leaf turning,
towards downsizing and determined to be less pack ratty from here on out!
 i have been not making art therefor feel more airhead than ever. Can't find things for all the boxes and DH decided to add a roof to insisting deck to rain shelter and shade,and to move fridge and shuffle cabs about  in the kitchen in the middle of move,
 (i wondered why he did not return one day for more boxes without topsis...).
so there are tools, and sharp things and extension cords, and sawdust, and  mucho confusion among boxes  about of kitchen and deck, as well the place in general.
 Good news is am exhausted enough not to comment or complain tho questions some times are read as complaints.Oh well
Now Today  is DH b day, again
so i might like to bake some overly sweet cupcakes or make a card or something,
i collected  flowers yesterday from plumeria trees so i can string them up perhaps,
providing i can locate any of those creative supplies to do so.
be well,
 and stay put! Sonja

I feel for you. We've been moving the past month and I haven't created a thing. Good luck.

I know exactly how you feel about not being able to create. I find myself incredibly crabby when I can't make something every day. Moving is such a stress, indeed! We've moved 11 times and I'm not looking forward to doing it again soon. Hope you find all your creative supplies and can get busy creating again...until then enjoy setting up a new place and Happy Birthday to your hubby.

Mahalo Alexandra,
his birthday was good!thanks for the wishes!Yes you DO know about moving! Some of the best parts are you don't have time to collect as much stuff and the new friends you will make. Am working today,hopefully, on completing projects started,down to the hand work, as July is close now with Haleiwa Arts Festival so close.
we have been moving for over a month too and like you in our same zip code. still some major schlepping when i rather be painting, etc...
