Chocolate Love

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

What a day!! I have posted my Chocolate Love piece on the Twelve X 12 site. You can read all about it there. Here is a close-up tease.


We have two refrigerators in our kitchen. It took Mr C quite a while to get the new one installed. We then had to wait for it to get cold. It has a Turbo Chill feature which helps to speed cooling when needed.

I spent most of the day getting the chocolate piece done. I also have lovely red hair with a very nice hair cut. Of course, I had to watch the debate. We are fired up and ready to go!! Woo hoo. Moving up in the polls and feeling good.

Tonight, I finished this week’s color exercises for my online class with Liz Berg. I have piles of fabric on the floor and left over snippets. The most fun was making analogous, complementary, split complementary and triad color schemes with my favorite color on the Ive’s color wheel. I used chartreuse!!

On the agenda for tomorrow: work on the church youth website, rearrange refrigerators, clean up my studio mess. M & M have no school tomorrow so they are coming in the afternoon to spend the night with us. Good stuff!!

Losing It!

Thursday, January 31st, 2008


I am up to my eyeballs in stuff. I have piles of colorful fabric that I am using to cut little squares for my color exercises in Lizzie’s class. I love doing the exercises, but I can’t really concentrate.

The Chocolate piece is giving me fits. I am having a problem with my printer and I keep getting ink smudges. Today is D-day as in Done Day. I must find a solution.

The new fridge is arriving momentarily. That means moving food from the current fridge to the new fridge after it is installed. Then I have to move garage fridge stuff to that fridge once it is moved to the garage.

My hair is a mess so I am taking a couple of hours this afternoon to get new color and a trim.

I haven’t been able to read blogs or answer e-mails. I am sorry and I miss you all. I will be back.

But, I really did lose it at WW, yesterday. I lost the gain of last week plus another half pound so I am at a new low. Whoopee! At least there is something good in this post.

Ta! Back to work. You will see Chocolate tomorrow. Terry!, I am making a list so that my left brain can be in control for a bit.
