Invisible Blogger

You've heard of the amazing invisible woman.......well, I'm the Invisible Blogger!  I'm so sorry I haven't been around, but things are a little kooky at the moment.  My art show was a bomb, the weather didn't cooperate (go figure the one day it rains in Arizona and my show is that weekend).  It was so windy that some people lost their tents, there was broken was miserable.  I spent the whole day terrified that my paperclay sculptures were going to blow away!

So, on to bigger and hopefully better things.  I'm working on Vivian's "spring giveaway" sculpture, another sculpture of a dachshund for the lovely Lynn of "Life on the Wienie Ranch," and I'm totally reorganizing and redecorating my studio/workroom.  I'm not able to do all the same wondrous things all you have done out there in blogland, but it's coming along..........slowly and with all my medical issues......painfully.....but it's coming!

Please be patient with me, and I hope to be back soon with new good stuff.  I miss you all, and I hope to see you all soon.

Big Hugs,

Hi Meri, you crazy girl, I have seen your creations and you can be sure I am the one who feels like I could use a little more help in the talent department. I have decided lately that I don't care if it makes sense or has been done or isn't the right way to do something, if I like it I try it and I am usually surprised at how well it turns out.
As far as the studio goes, I'm glad someone can relate. It has been such an extremely time consuming process and my husband has been doing most of the physical work. I help with sanding and painting and little stuff. We are trying so hard to finish things up around here since it is progressively getting harder for him to do the work. I think the worst and best parts are when I am trying to explain what I want and he is trying to explain it isn't possible, but then together we come up with something better than I even imagined. This kept happening over and over. I feel very fortunate to have had his expertise and help along the way. He is a carpenter. I could never had have this space without his talents. Then again, this room would have been just four walls with two countertops and bins underneath without my imagination - so together we have done great. I am so lucky. I wish we could come and help you so you could get done more quickly. I don't know how you are doing it without help. I would go to Ikea or some place like that and buy lots of desks and storage bins and shelves. I would put them together along with what I already have at home or find in rummage sales and antique stores. Then I would add all the little touches and voila - you have ImagimeriLand!
I can't wait to see what you come up with, I know it will be wonderful!

I just had to add that I was so honored that you love it and thought so highly of it and what I have done. Did you know that you are one of the few bloggers who inspired me to try to blog, and my goal was to try to have a blog that was even as remotely wonderful as yours and your friend Miss E? You two have set the bar pretty high but I am happy to have such a wonderful example of the right way to do it! Love ya right back!!!!!
More hugs,

If you know the technique of invisible mending, you can do various creative things and get appraisal of everyone.

People at that show were dumb.

They didn't even know about the magazine...geez.

Hi Meri!

I've been an invisible blogger lately, does that to us sometimes, doesn't it?!

So sorry about the show--that's so disappointing...don't give up, though! Next time will be fabulous, I'm sure!

Between you & Sandy, you're inspiring me to get upstairs & clean up my messy work room...but again, that life stuff keeps taking precedence!

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friend...hope you're feeling better!

Oh, gee, I am so sorry about the bad weather! I would have been afraid for your paper sculptures, too! It is disappointing to have gone all out for something, then have the weather mess things up.
Bless you,
