Progress Report

Fossil Rich Dirt from Piratefest

Here's a few of the things I've been up to over the past few days. As you can see, it's pretty book centric in more ways than one:

- photo plates ordered from Boxcar (I think I got my files right)
- power point about halfway done (still trying to figure out what direction to go with it, I don't want to talk forever, but I have a lot I could say)
- halfway through 2nd book for readings class (For the Time Being, by Anne Dillard)
- halfway through reading another book
- 23 wall brooches (so far)
- 2 coptic stitch books and 4 simple 2 hole books (just for fun and procrastination)
- chain for the case for my final book
- some salt experiments and a repair (Salt Vessel came back damaged)
- started gauche painting for a wet media mono type (for my end pages for my final book)
- fossil hunting a Piratefest (found a whole mess of shark teeth, some nice, two shark vertebrae, some tiny gastropods and a nice porpoise tooth, among other things. Thinking about making a piece with the bones I've found . . .)
- baked two loaves of Honey Whole Wheat Bread (delicious and nutritious!)
- Spring Cleaning!!! (ok, so I didn't vacuum, but you should see my microwave!)

wow, you have been so productive! I'm tired just reading your list ;)

It doesn't feel very productive.

Mainly, I was just trying to prove to myself that I actually got something done and make up for not blogging, or taking any pictures.

But in retrospect, looking at the list are you convinced? I know what you mean. Blogging and pictures can start to feel like the only measure of productivity. But you got a lot done, believe me.

Yeah, I feel like I've been pretty productive. I sometimes forget that productivity isn't only measured by hours spent in the studio!
