I'm stressin'

Well, it's not all that bad. September usually gets kinda crazy for me and all the other crafting chicas out there. This year I'm doing a half dozen shows before Christmas, so be sure to check my shows and events page for updates and specific info.

In the next 2 weeks I really need to amp up and create new work for The Urban Bazaar, Etsy and other stores that currently carry Superchica goodies. My studio will be buzzing. My finger is finally healing!!! Yeah! After several weeks of wearing giant and sometimes embarrassing bandages, I finally went out yesterday with a naked finger. It's still a little tender, but I know that it's completely closed up and on the mend. The scar on the other hand might be pretty noticeable. I'd post a pic, but you don't really need to see it. ;)

Also, I have to admit I'm spending way too much time on the computer, when I should be in the studio. The problem is that I have so many online responsibilities. You know what I mean. For starters, there is my website and then the DCM website and my blog, then I have to update my Twitter, Etsy, Indie Public and MySpace pages. The biggest time bandit these days is Facebook. ( I shake my fist and FB and then I give it a kiss.) Because I have a high school reunion on the horizon, everyone has come out of the woodwork and joined FB. Ultimately it's a good thing, but it is sooooooo easy to get too focused on checking the status of everyone and commenting on photos etc. Yeesh. The other thing I'm just a little obsessed with is joining Etsy chat rooms. Do you do this? It's really fun to meet other artists and look at their work and read as people gab about all sorts of crazy things. I'm in there almost every night now. I need sun exposure.

Just to finish up this post quickly I present a Superchica Montage...because you've got to have a montage.
• Working on cuffs and heabands
• Having lunch with old friends and loving it
• Getting frustrated with my dogs when they get belligerent
• Loving on my kitty "Pickle" after her surgery
• Frolicking in the yard because the weather is incredible
• Posting pics online and cursing at my computer because it's so slow
• Happily whipping up batches of Rice Krispy Snacks
• Anxiously awaiting Halloween
• Keeping myself calm when I realize how much I have to do!
