for the weekend

Today I was able to play in the woods for a little while... and I brought along my trusty camera.
In a perfect world... I would be able to do this every day... but alas... such is not the case right now.
But in the meantime... it was great to be out and about in the forest.

This is the last week of my temporary job... in which I've been working 6 days a week... (all beit... for only a couple hours a day). I will miss it, for alot of reasons.... not the least of which; is that it is our main source of income at the moment. We have had some drastic changes in our life/ lifestyle these past few months... and I think I am still in a bit of culture shock about it all. I do think that the move cross-country was a great decision... but it's been hard in many ways as well.
Lessons are being learned.
Skills are being tasked.
Life goes on.

I love to research things on-line... and (not incidentally)... I was looking for jobs that can be done from the home. So I was reading several articles..  like THIS one... this week. Unfortunately, the reality is that most companies really don't want to have their employees working from home. ... which is sad. With my husband planning on going back to school... it would be great for him to be able to work from home a bit.

-Someone forwarded me THIS article... which I thought was interesting.
-And because money is an issue... this was a cool article to read.
-This looked good... and I will have to try it sometime soon.
-My daughter found some discarded windows this past week... and was researching what to do with them... and came across this... and this.... and this.... and this.
-Then I came across THIS... and this... and this.... which makes me want to do art full time.
-A friend was asking me about Steampunk this week... a style of work that I love... and I found this site that I thought I would share with you.
-today I cam across this... and as I am a HUGE fan of Legos... it made my day :)
-as an artist... pricing your work is always difficult. I friend of mine sent me this article on the subject...
- and on that vein.... I love Keith Lo Bue's work... and thought I would post his website for you all.

I hope you all had/have a great weekend...
