The contents of today

Most of the earlier part of today was rainy. It POURED earlier so I took Posey outside under the covering and let her just watch the rain fall like a waterfall... She cooed and cooed and was totally blissed out. And when it wasn't pouring, the world was swallowed up in a fog.
It was that type of fog that makes the world feel like a dream.
I like to quietly work in such conditions.

I worked in the studio on a couple screens for a the shirts I got to screen print on. I took a break to go visit the shelter where we decided to bring kitty since she desperately wanted to be a more indoor kitty and we just couldn't accommodate. I went to make sure she was settling ok and happy. It seems she is and should be up for adoption soon.
She will make someone feel very loved!

Then, all of a sudden, it was beautiful out...

I took advantage.
I worked out in the garden, which I had been longing to do since it has been raining so much and I haven't really been able to do much lately. I love gardening, such great therapy!

Then I worked some more on the screens. They have to be done in stages, you know.

Step 1. Drawing fluid...
Let it dry.

Step 2. Screen filler...
Let it dry.

Step 3. Rinse off drawing fluid...
Let it dry...

And so on.

This is an experiment. I am hoping to offer some shirts with my designs on them. Hopefully I will be able to offer them soon! I also would like to create some postcards to offer where a portion of the proceeds go to the shelter. See this post for the photos I am considering using. Feel free to comment on which ones you like best, I am thinking of doing 3 or 4. And I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of the Little Owl totes that I had a friend print up for me (the design was too intricate for my skill level at the moment).

So that was my day,
And tomorrow we are hoping to go see The Big 'Ol Dirty Bucket play.
They are a super fun funk band.
Let's hope it all works out!


  1. That feels a good day and I think it's great the idea of the shirts, you are such a good artist, so you can work on lots of different designs.

    Have a lovely weekend!!
