I was getting ready to go to the Post Office since I didn't get to yesterday, but now it is pouring rain! And of course, I walk, lol, so I might wait and see if the rain might calm down a little. There's no way I could carry all of those packages AND an umbrella!!! I've been thinking about just going to the Post Office twice a week, instead almost every day like I do now. With the amount of stuff I send out it's just getting too crazy! I'll pick two days and make them "shipping days". That would probably be easier because it could be even more of an "assembly line" type thing, which would go faster and more efficiently. Well, we'll see.|
I'm not sure what I'll paint today - I might do some more of my "fairytale" series. There are a lot of scenes from fairytales that I'd like to paint. More Snow White maybe - I'd like to paint the evil witch too, maybe giving her the apple. Or maybe even show her with the Seven Dwarfs, hehe. I keep watching the door, hoping that I'll get my shipment from MisterArt.com today! I ordered a big roll of canvas, among other things, and I want to do a very tall skinny painting of Rapunzel letting down her hair, lol! I just checked the tracking and it looks like my package is in Orlando now, so hopefully it will arrive soon!!!
I have a couple of things to do first, but then you'll be able to watch me HERE while I work!
Oooh! The delivery guy is here - must be my MisterArt shipment!!
Hay, do you know about Carrier Pickup? I thought I read about you talkin about if before but just in case - heres the link for more info!!! ;3 http://www.usps.com/pickup/
Ah yes!!! I might look into that!!! I'm going to ask a few questions at the Post Office about it (particularly about international shipping, since a lot of my packages go overseas).
FAIRY TALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL, silly I am ;) That Rapunzel one sounds BAD ASS!!!!!!!!! I LOVED your other one! That HAIR!
Have fun with your art supplies!!! I hope they get there!
two shipping days are a good idea and it definitely helps things get done more efficiently.
one good thing to help carry all the packages ... which I use to carry my art and stuff is a boogie board bag. They are the right size, huge but not as huge as a surfboard bag, and you can fit a zillion packages in there and still look reasonably cool. I am sure you can find a boogie board bag in Florida and you can wear it like a backpack ( so you can use your umbrella ). But, I am thinking it doesn't rain too much in Florida, anyhow ... :-)
Lol! That is a good idea! I actually have a boogie board too, lol, but I don't have a bag for it, hehe. I should look around!!! Right now I just have a big box. Lately though, Matt's been home on most of my shipping days to help, which is always nice >^__^
Welcome to my LiveJournal! Feel free to comment whenever you like >^_^<
I looked at your journal too - it looks like we have a lot in common!
I've been thinking about doing a bunch of fairytale pictures too! Right now I'm doing a picture from Peter Pan (I just read it). I don't know if that counts as a fairytale or not. Then I'm going to look through my fairtale books for inspiration.
I can't wait to see another Rapunzel one by you! I love Rapunzel art. I did a picture but her hair didn't come out quite how I wanted it. I think I'll probably try it again sometime.
