This week is kicking my butt! I get into these frenzys every now and then when I need new work, and apparently my brain needs it now! All of the ideas that I have been swirling around in my head have to come out. I am not sure why it happens all at once, but the damn has broken, so to speak, and the flood is raging (as you can tell by the growing stack of finished backgrounds above). If I dont plan well enough I can get stuck, so I have to be sure to be ready before actually picking up my brush. Sometimes I wish I had a simple brain that thought from A-B without jumping all over the place, instead of the easily distracted and jumbled blender of a mind that I seem to be blessed with. I swear I am not complaining, just venting a wee bit.

The weather is gorgeous! Here I am trapped at the glue table, and the sun is shining bright. I dragged the hammock up to the house, out of the shade, and set it up so that at lunch I could go outside and close my eyes in the sun and sway in the breeze. By that hour all of the gardeners have finished up (because here they are here at 7 am and gone by 8 all up and down the street like some crazed weed whacking dance) and so all you can really hear are the birds and the occasional car. We live a block away from an elementary school, and every now and then, if you are very still, you can hear the kids at recess. It is really lovely and why I love this time of year. The temps aren't over 90 yet, but I am sure they will be before I know it.

OH! I read this really interesting article I wanted to be sure to share! When you work for yourself and provide a service, such as Graphic Design, you have to be careful with how you accept payment. I never really thought about it much, but am now after reading this article on Freelance Switch.This was my first visit to this site, but I have it bookmarked now for future ref.
