May Days

I seem to have been consumed by the month of May. AND that is why I have not been around blogging world much. Kids, life, and I don't know what else have had me busy. Well, actually, I'm helping the hub plan a big annulment party for an old friend of his, at the Village Underground in NYC. The hubs old band will be playing- called The Laughing Dogs. I included the invite - just for a little visual interest. The funny looking guy in the middle is actually a Joe Head - something goofy they used to use in their gigs. Don't ask.
Other than that, the days just seem to be whizzing by! How did May get here so quickly anyway? OK I will return with some raw art wip's to show. Warning: They can be a little scary! (:

Happy May Days All!

The Best Laid Plans

Well, it looks like the whole art class thing is being put on hold. Just found out that hubby needs some major dental work that is gonna cost a small fortune. And the money situation, being what it is, I don't think the timing is right just now. But you know what they say about the Best Laid Plans, right? Anyhoo, that's not to say that it won't happen down the road. Perhaps in Fall. I believe in God and Fate and that He will see us through this and things will fall into place when the timing is right.
Meantime, I got a few more jobs for designing business cards and magnetic car signs. SO I'll put some flyers up around town and try to generate some more income with that. Easy enough. Just need me and my computer! (:
Hope everyone had a GREAT Mother's Day! I spent the day planting my tomatoes and cukes and flowers. Enjoy the week and may each new day bring blessings and sunshine!

Looking for a name. The whole Art Classes for Kids things is coming together a bit more (see two posts down for details) and now it's time for a name. I don't want anything that sounds too much like a Gallery, yet something that encourages a bit of curiousity. SO having said that, so far we have.....(drum roll please)
The Art Factory, Art Attack, Art n Joy Studio, The Little Art Studio and ahhh...that's it. Keep in mind, that no matter what - there would be a tag line like - Art Classes - Workshops - Parties For Kids - kind of thang.
The smaller space is the one available. But workable. Around 11 x 28. Not that it matters but it obviously couldn't be called The Art Center as it just would not be appropo (nor very exciting).
So put your little creative thinking caps on and let it rip! All suggestions are welcome.
Hope everyone is having a spiffy week!
