I had every intention of having some creative time this week. Although my girls would be home from school — and my mom was arriving late Wednesday — surely I would have some studio time — right?

Now that my guest is gone — well . . . .all of the Christmas decorations had to go up. Two days. No studio time.
The good news is that the girls go back to school tomorrow and I’m hoping for some studio time.
