Changes.....

Wow, it's been way too long since I've updated...
Just uploaded a new background--for a new start :)

The last few months have been full of changes; BIG ones... Moving, cleaning, sorting, divorce, saying goodbye, building a new studio, re-designing big projects, selling lots of stuff, and really finding my true friends...

But, it's good---I am looking forward to new adventures, new projects, great biz partnerships, & a new creative life :) I have a cute (on the inside) little workshop  & apartment on the back of Grammy & Grampy's property in Boise (yay!) and am very excited to get to work creating lots of new things : )

And speaking of new projects: tomorrow I am headed out to the Botanical Garden with the 1st of 3 pieces that I decided to donate...very excited to get them placed.....
Got the truck loaded & ready to go today :)  Planning on installing tomorrow morning: with the help of some friends & their friends (with big muscles!) 
This is my little Mack truck--yep, it has a dog on the hood (I was thinking of giving him a sparkly rhinestone collar :) Anyway, the important part is that it has a little crane---very handy for moving these huge, heavy sculptures....
This first one is the easiest of the  3; it's only 12 feet tall & not too heavy (for steel): I will use the crane to set it on wheels, & with the crew we have gathered, we will roll it down the sidewalk to it's new home---then we have to lift it into place--that should be interesting : )

The next 2 will go in later; and mark your calendars for June 3rd: ribbon cutting ceremony & I am throwing a big party that evening: to celebrate art in the garden & thank everyone who has been involved in my projects....I've always wanted to do something like this, & it seemed like the perfect opportunity....     There will be music, entertainment, drinks, food, & lots of fun---out at the Garden---I can't wait : )   More details to come....

That's it for now; look for a new post tomorrow---after the install: hopefully it doesn't snow/rain on us, lol : )
