Sorry I have not been on recently. To catch up and be brief, I made out like a bandit for Christmas. I was given a new camera by my parents - which I REALLY wanted. It is a 15 mega pixel SLR, My first one. (as opposed to my 8 meg cannon power shot.)  My friends all pooled together and gave me art supplies I desperately needed (supplies were running low.)

Unfortunately, I came down sick Christmas day. I had a sore throat for a day or 2 prior so was not surprised - but still sad. I was just too tired and miserable to work on any projects, especially since my "studio" is in the most under heated part of the basement. It got worse when, on the night of new year's day, I became VIOLENTLY ill and even spent 2 nights sleeping on the floor of the bathroom because I was too weak to stand, much less get up and go back and forth from the bed -ICK!

I have gotten better now, just in time for the new semester to start, thank goodness. But it means the 2 weeks I had planned on having to work exclusively on art projects were consumed with me having nothing to show for it. =(  So I apologize for not posting anything as of late. It also means I have fallen WAY behind on reviewing and commenting on the art in my in-box, sorry.

So I will be working the next few days on trying to get the 185...6. make that 186 (~snort~) deviations a little more under control. Thank you to those of you who still visited and sent messages, I am working on replying to those as well. I do like meaningful conversations.

I am also VERY excited to take the camera out, and perhaps a new I.D?

Best wishes and talk to you all soon!
