i could use at least 4 more hours in a day.
i wish i had a clay wedging gnome. he could follow me around and do the dirty work in the studio. maybe i should try craigslist?
i think i'm never planning a party again. seriously.
i have 2 classes at Art House this fall! i have 2 at Orange Art Center! you should take one. ceramics is fun. i'm funny. it will be good times. i promise.
i have 70 coasters to paint cherry blossoms on. what was i thinking?
i'm tired of exhausting people. i'm already exhausted. you are not helping.
i need to clean the spare bedroom. i've lived at my new place for 2 months. perhaps its time to finally organize the room? again, a helper gnome would be delightful.
