articrat

someone recently asked me to define the term i most recently made up and used on my facebook status-

articrat- any person involved in art organizations in which action is obstructed by insistence on unnecessary procedures and red tape. generally these people tend to be rather “talkey” and enjoy sitting at round tables, writing on white boards, have lots of post it notes, 3×5 cards, and mount endless discussions on how to “fix” art and culture. almost exclusively, they are not working artists. in other words, they have some other way to pay their bills.

as you can tell, i need more studio time.

Getting ready for Chicago. shipping workshop and booth freight on Monday. No more flowermaking for a while but planning on dyeing and processing fabric and ribbon tomorrow. Phew! There’s also an article to be written, a new Canadian distributor- Running with Scissors – carrying the shibori ribbon and several other things on the list- how about this: soon you will find my silk shibori pocket squares here. Exactly! (by the way- they are also in Canada!)

so-gotta go!
mata-ne!
ps- added a new post over on the other blog– take the Mind Style Estimator test there and see where you fall in terms of learning styles. I was a 7-8-7-8.
