Happy New Year!

I know I'm a little late, but I can still wish you a happy year if I want to. And I want to! I honestly don't know why I didn't post it before, but I'm not surprised as I've been totally unproductive and preoccupied.

I decided yesterday, however, that since I joined the Use It Up campaign that I'd better get started. Last week was Organization Week with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, and I followed along to the tune of two large priority boxes of "stuff" packed and ready to ship to my grandniece in Michigan. She has two little ones and a third on the way, and she perfect is that? So all that's left now is to Use It Up! I'm going to give it my best shot and start by finishing up half a dozen or more projects that I've never finished. They're getting on my nerves sitting around here, being moved out of the way again and again and again. It's time to bite the bullet because clutter makes me crazy when it's not organized.

Other than that, my pea brain has been trying to deal with my 17 18 year old cat's IBD. My sister says he's getting senile because he whines, but he also projectile vomits and misses the litter box on a regular basis... when diarrhea hits. He doesn't even wear a diaper. It's getting old and I'm getting tired. He's about had it with me cramming pills down his throat and giving him smelly, stinky medicine and I don't blame him. So we're trying some probiotics now...just a sprinkle on his food and hope it helps his digistive system a bit more than the meds. Poor baby.

Lots of good stuff going on in the mixed media art world. Some great challenges that I haven't joined but love following. More on that later. Gotta go clean the litter box.
