a new leaf

So we're coming to the end of the first month of a new year and I'm feeling like I am already playing catch up. Not really how I wanted to start 2011. I have commissions that need finished and new work that I'm excited to create. In the meantime, I'm getting back into a routine that I have done before, but it's been several years. What on earth is she talking about? I was accepted into a graduate program at a local university and started classes last Monday. I am working towards my Masters in Education with endorsements in art and ESL. Since I already have my BA I will be student teaching by next spring! But that means a full load this spring, summer and fall. I'm already working my study time into my day, but am still working on the creative time. Today has been the designated day to finish up one commission and ship off a few orders, then I can work on this weeks assignments. So if I seem a little absent sometimes, that is why.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and as always, I look forward to hearing from you!

Off to a make some art!
