Codeword: Candymusic



I've got candy.
I've got music.
I've got paintbrushes.
Who could ask for anything more?

All inhabitants here know the code of music and candy together in the stuido. It means I'm working. Usually painting. I feel like I barely get to paint anymore. I've got some new concepts going involving painting and fabric and as soon as I do some with legal fabrics I will share. Can't wait.

So Jack and I are hard at work and dancing through some lovely rhythms of color and acoustic guitar. And my contractor overbought building supplies for the candy-laden gingerbread house, so I'll be sweetly sustained. No resolutions regarding sweets here. Only to be sweet. But I try that every year. Heading off on a biztrip with new designs under my arm this weekend, so likely we won't visit again until next week.

Just a little down and to your left Jack, and you've almost got the purple one.

    Ahhhh...Jack. He's good for just about anything, I think, especially reminiscing about warm, sandy beaches in the middle of January.

    I am SO enjoying your blog - and I also picked up a pack of your Christmas napkins the other day! ;)

  16. Jack Johnson is my surfer man of my dreams...Never seen him, his music is so, so, so soft and tender. I have all of his music. You might like Ben Lee or Sufjan Stevens also...have a great day.
