flickr/blogging break

flickr/blogging break, originally uploaded by sproutgirl74.

..some personal & difficult family biz has sprung up unexpectantly...i'm going home for a bit & will be taking a break. is too short, too vibrant, too amazing, too heartbreaking, too stimulating, too overwhelming, & too TOO a lot of the time.

take good care my friends...

meme via meg

because i haven't had time to upload renegade fair photos, and because i won't have time in the near few days due to immediate house guests upon arrival home from chicago, this will be my short & sweet post for now:

1. Do you promote your blog?

sorta; it's on my emails and forum signatures & such. i like to think loads of people are fascinated with me, but in reality, i think like 2 people check in with me occasionally. i'm not even sure my mother reads this that much!

2. How often do you check hits?

i just installed statcounter recently, i check every coupla days or so along with my site hits...

3. Do you stick to one topic? that's probably why no one as schizy as me reads this!

4. Who knows that you have a blog?

my friend jojo, and my friend christine...& shash! & my mom i think :) i don't know, maybe more! i like that it's almost a journal for me than anything else.

5. How many blogs do you read?

check that bar to the left; holy crap that's a lot. but i do have my faves for sure; i actually thought about rearranging to mark my faves i check in with more.

6. Are you a fast reader?

pretty much, but i don't know that's a good thing.

7. Do you customize your blog or do anything technical?

let's just say i feel like a computer queen when i figured out how to get that flickr template on here & then the etsy one too? holy mother, i am a genius. it only took me about a year and a half and my friend lesley from the u.k. to clue me in on how to make a link. that's why i picked blogger. easy peasy.

8. Do you blog anonymously?


9. To what extent do you censor yourself?

not too much. anyone remember my hell year last year when i thought i was dying from mysterious intestinal issues? yep. i like to share.

10. The best thing about blogging?

everyone i "meet" - if that be pseudo wise or in real life's been super wonderful to meet up with some of you & i hope to meet up with more. i'm in love with the fact that there is a super strong female contingency of bad ass artists here in the bay area -- as well, as all over the country too. i like being inspired by everyone out there --- so many of you :) so thank you blogging buddies!

join on in if you feel so inclined - and let me know so i can take a gander! :)

renegade craft fair!

i'm off this friday to chicago for RCF!!! i'm super thrilled. i'm not super ready yet, but that's okay, it's coming along. i get to hang out with lots of cool crafty ladies & the mister gets to chill (& work like crazy) too.

so sprout studio has been insane busy. the new site is going to be pushed back a smidgie until i can figure out how to do everything that needs to be done!

later gators!

feet week; wednesday

feet week; wednesday, originally uploaded by sproutgirl74.

off i go on my silly wicked witch of the west bike -- only one brake works, it's nice & rusty, the gears clunk like crazy and only switch sometimes when they feel like it. but i love my bike and i love riding by the bay in the morning to work -- it's kinda quiet for the first little leg, and then on the embarcadero there are a million & one runners & scooter-ers, & "real" high techie bikers, and grocery cart pushers & doggie walkers....& little ole pig tailed me riding along :)

i love posting feet week photos - thanks for hosting shash!

2 year blog anniversary!

i just realized september is 2 years for this little blog o' mine. it's funny like that, how time speeds up when looking at a fixed point like a beginning of a journal...or the beginning of starting something new; a new regime, a new outlook, a new resolution.

happy anniversary sprout studio blog :)

thank you sweet readers who flit by on occasion & check in - i appreciate your interest & comments & thoughts so very much!

good saturday morning friends :)

participating in shash's feet week photos. i don't really know when we are starting, but bunny slippers on a saturday morning seemed like a good opening! :)

up early this morning, more production in the studio & checking things off lists. had to shake off the overwhelming/ennui/wan/too much too do feeling i felt threatening to overtake me...but i got up, made coffee (when i normally have tea) so now i'm on caffeine, GET IT ALL DONE buzz...hopefully it will stay with me for a while.

seeing good friends this afternoon whom we haven't seen in a long time, hopefully getting plants tomorrow with another friend, and getting to meet up with said shash, from up above, on monday! these are my treats in between feverishly attacking that list :)

more later friends!
