loose cannon




having an energetic doodlemorning in kansas city - i am on my second loose cannon (coffee with espresso, nothing else) and strong allergy meds so i am a bit of a loose cannon myself at the moment. when i arrived, my art goodie bag opened before i was ready and my stack of inked backgrounds went splat on the floor - just like this, a little fan of colors. so i got sidetracked for a moment taking pictures of the floor and got some raised eyebrows from corporate folks holding meetings here and mom groups gabbing about whatever it is they gab about... finished lettering a doodle based on one of my tags for the shop... realized i could use one of these scores of bracelets i've made as a little cozy for my coffee...and just noticed i've had headphones in my ears for the last hour and haven't been listening to anything. now fixed: zoot sims... and now i'm going back to visit fruenswerk yet one more time to look at her hilarious and brilliant photostory. hope you're having a great thursday wherever you are... :)

update: a marvelous surprise package from london just showed up this afternoon, full of thereza's gorgeous prints, postcards and mini moo cards...many of my favorites are in here, especially the yellow one about the delusional self talking nonsense... that's all me. thank you thereza!

wowee zowee! such goodness from thereza!

you mean it's thursday already? and oh, you were wearing that coffee cozy/bracelet monday weren't you?
it amazes me that you can work and be so focused in a coffee shop, i would sit there and just watch the suits & gabbing moms. :)

i'm amazed you can take in so much caffeine and sit still long enough to create such wonderful art. i love the artwork you received.

what a great package!!!

I do that head phone thing all the time. so silly, but there is something oddly comforting about having those little earbuds take up space all snuggly like in my ears.

thanks, all - i've gone back to look at fruenswerk's photostory so many times i think i've broken the server :D

loving the snail mail goodies, too - and the caffeine is slowly wearing off...

love the color and the energy... and if you can make those gorgeous bracelets, you can make a colorful crochet rug! no more excuses ! :)

Girl, you were in the ZONE! I love how you can whip out your camera anywhere and start snapping away. And your own portable coffee cup cozy -- awesomeness! Chic, practical AND environmentally friendly! And I find the silent earbuds are a nice subtle way to tell people to just leave me alone.

Fantastic package! I LOVE that print of the animals blowing away with umbrellas. How COOL!

I am not a coffee drinker, but it might keep me moving... I got my own copy of Artful Blogging! I am so happy for you- it looks fabulous! Great Work!!!

Gosh - a loose cannon sounds quite dangerous, but is probably the kind of thing I should get to start my day. The bracelet/headbands you made from that yarn is very, very nice. And what a great end to the day to receive a lovely package from tiny red! I'm off now to look at fruenswerk ...

Lynn Fisher said...

Good idea about the coffee cozy from bracelets... but mine are all made of beads, hmmm. Hey how did you two start this colorful exchange?
