Old Work & Birthdays


Most of you know I did or do jewelry but did you know I did paper mache folk art before that? Here are some pieces that I still have :o) Flower Fran is dated Feb 2004 and Party Kitty is also from 2004. Kinda fun to look back, right? I keep these pieces in my studio as reminders. I also have some of the first painted glass pendants I did (shudder!), and a few pieces of the ceramics I've done. There's a pop art painting that I did hanging in my hall downstairs, and two abstracts that I did in my foyer...Do you all keep any of your artwork?

I spent the day doing something that ranks right up there with computer stuff...housework :oP Yuk. I would rather gouge out my eye with a fork. I love a clean house, but I don't like being the clean house maker! Not my gig. I'm cleaning because tomorrow is my birthday ;o) (I'm 21 again, why do you ask?) and so that means people are coming over...why though does that mean work for me?? Then you know you clean for them to come over and then you just have to clean again when they leave. Sigh. There must be something to this madness! I get to where I dread holidays and birthdays because they are so much work...OMG I've turned into my mother!! That is exactly what she used to say and I would say she was a stick in the mud!! On the eve of my 46th b-day I have officially turned into my mother!! Well maybe that's not such a bad thing, she was a wise woman ;o)

Have a great weekend everyone whatever you do! Happy Birthday to my dear Luthien who shares the same birthday as my youngest Son on Sunday!! My son will turn 13 on Sunday, and I have no idea how that happened! One day he was a terrible two and the next he's an intelligent, sweet, funny young man. I'm going to try and post on Sunday, but I'll be honest Saturday night we are going out to a bar and I'm not sure the shape I'll be in on Sunday. Georgina, I'm gonna party like a rock star!! xo Michele

Happy Birthday to you. I hope it is a good one despite the housework!

Somehow in the past few years I took on housework as a theraputic activity. That's how I'm pretty sure I am insane. :)

Michele Lynch Art said...

LOL Tina! Yes, yes, you are officially insane LOL! No, really I know lots of people that love housework! Just not me lol! xo Michele

Michele Lynch Art said...

Thank you Luthien and Happy Birthday!! Yes it's great!! We Pisces to rule lol!! LOL nope my son doesn't share my opinion that he's still a little man! LOL thanks for saying I look better now than I did when I was 26! Definitely with age comes experience ;o)

Oh Micki, I feel for ya! This cleaning thing stinks!! Thanks on the vids Micki! I haven't done one in a long long time! Maybe it's time to do a new vid?

Michele, I hope your have a wonderful birthday:) I did, mine was yesterday!

I love looking back at things I've made over the years....one day I'm going to be brave and post my first doll (she's pretty scary, not in a good way lol).

Michele Lynch Art said...

Happy Birthday Dawn!! Wow there are lots of us right here on this weekend! We should have had a HUGE global party somewhere LOL! Oh be brave and lets see her! I'll bet she's not bad at all!! Those that I posted are 7 years old!! xo Michele

Georgina said...

OMG Michele!! You're a baby!! I remember 46...I was 80 lbs. lighter, newly divorced and going to school and actually, having a heck of a great time, not that I'm not now, but I was 46!! LOL

I suggest you watch over your child during the night of his impending 13 year birthday. I recall when my eldest, now 34, turn 13, the day before he was this sweet, gentle, loving, intelligent little guy and the next day, he had gone through a huge transformation....brain damage!! LOL Wish I could say he out-grew that!! LOL
Anyway, Feliz Cumpleanos and do what I do on such occasions...escape!!

xxoo,
Georgina

LOL Georgina, I admit this is the best age ever I think!! Well okay from like 34 until now...

LOL I hear you on the boy, my older son did that too (he's 22 about to turn 23) and I swear it's cuz they are men in training, and then at 13 they turn into men! xo Michele
