My Nesting Dolls

I joined a swap awhile ago through Aesthetic Outburst, and it was touch and go for awhile, but I actually sent my dolls off yesterday, so hopefully they will be included in the swap. Yes, they were due about 2 weeks ago, and yes, I am so late.
For I am The Queen of Unfinished Projects. I probably should focus my blog around that topic because I would be able to do a posting a day about all of the unfinished projects in my life. My issue is that I am a Pisces rising with dreams of grandeur, pretty much everyday. The problem with this is that the dreams change daily, and they are always new. Think about it- two new ideas at least everyday....that's about 730 new ideas a year (not including the extra dreams on the 3+ idea days) and about 489 started, but not finished. ARGGH. You get the idea.
It makes me so proud of myself when I actually finish a project. This is the second. The first was my mobile.
Oh, by the way, look up...see the blog title?...I have had good intentions of changing the banner since it was created. I'd like my own artwork up there. Has it happened? Nope.

Balloon Dog

Jeff Koons' work on the roof of the Met is really bright. Literally. I needed my sunglasses. Although the other two pieces didn't do much for me, the Balloon Dog is just the cat's meow as far as I'm concerned. My husband refuses to let me get a dog, he says that he will be the one who ends up caring for it. Maybe I can talk him into this dog. For anyone in the area, you really should take a peek.

Squirrel and Chipie Studies

In celebration of spring, here are some drawings of the furry little critters that I see EVERYWHERE in the park...well not the chipmunk, but he's so cute I thought I'd include him.

So I've been taking a lot of long walks lately in hopes that it will psych me up for totally revamping my life. Yesterday I saw the lanterns being hung in the trees at Tavern on the Green and how magical it was! The lanterns are faded from many thrilling summers (what they must have seen already), but they are sooo gorgeous and peaceful hanging from their perches.
