the studio

here is a new ad i created for the program for the 2nd annual children's african ball, organized by roots to fruits. i don't know photshop at all, but i'm at least program savvy enough to throw a little somethin together.

i need to create

so today was a more of a home improvement day...painted the house and took care of some boring household chores. but tonight... i have plans to mix up paints and dyes to add to the studio for future projects that have been dancing around in my head for months, some batiks, some greeting cards, oh i just don't have enough hands to keep up with my plans!

i'm very proud of how the white walls turned out...makes this old house look more alive and clean and livable...i'm very tempted to keep the couch in the middle of the room and the dollhouses on the table...

i have to get these children to bed so i can create something! assata is on the floor in my studo making mini kites, rasul is whining to hang from my nipple as usual, but it can't happen right now, i'm blogging! dhani is in his daddy's studio, hanging out with him as usual.

i'm going to finish this late dinner, so that i can make some of my ideas come true tonight before i get to sleepy, or, as i often do, pass out while i'm breasfeeding.

how bad do i want it?

i've said for years that i want to make a living creating things from home... and when i create things, i sell them. but i'm so easily distracted, and i have so much going on, that up to this point i have never put in my 100% and treated my art or my businesses like full time gigs.

one of my favorite quotes:

if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.

so in the spirit of doing something different, i've started this blog to track my inspirations/findings/creations/progress.
