|Work In Progress watercolor on paper 11 x 14|
Do you ever have those weeks that seem to be full of technical difficulties? I'm having one of those weeks. On a positive note I finished a large commission and got that shipped off, but the difficulties come in to play with trying to get prints made. I've been frequenting a printer that is an hour and a half away from my house to get the prints made. This is no easy feat with 2 small boys, it's a lot of time in the car not to mention the gas. Since I move all of the time (military family) I have to find new companies every time I move, so I had never used this printer before. Their website is impressive and the samples he had also impressive. So I was very surprised when I saw the proof and it didn't look any better than something I could have printed on my home printer. He promised to tweak it and have me come back. Well after a few days of ignoring my call and e-mails I'm going to assume that he's through with the project. I'm back to square one. I found another company and am anxiously awaiting the proof from them. Crossing all fingers, toes and eyes here:)
In conjunction with all of my printer woes, my boys have both started a Summer program which adds another level of stress. My youngest son has never been away from me. The first day was great, no issues, day 2 my youngest guy had an allergic reaction to something and broke out in hives. I'm not sure what he's allergic too, but he still has some hives on his legs.
On top of that there is always the endless laundry, dishes and dirty diapers, a thankless, never-ending job. Calgon take me away, serenity now, serenity now! But it is officially the weekend, so I'm declaring a fabulous weekend and a stress-free week next week.
Hope you have a fabulous, stress-free weekend also,
