This is mobile blogging at its finest. I'm currently sitting in a gas station/Wendy's in Binghamton NY because my car died on 81 on my way to Utica for the opening of my exhibition. (Which needless to say I will no longer be attending.)

The picture shows the spot where my car died. Sad little car, I hope its not to serious.

cathcing up

Yesterday, I went to Utica (in a snow storm) to deliver work for my show that opens on Friday. If you're in CNY, you should stop by and say hello. Here are the details:
Megan Auman and Analia Segal
February 29 through April 4, 2008
Lecture: February 29 4-5 PM
Reception: February 29 5-6 PM

I haven't had a chance to recap ACC yet, but Arthur has a nice little recap you can check out.

still standing

I don't ever remember being this tired in my entire life. I just wanted to share that with all of you.

Hopefully your Monday requires far less coffee than mine.

Since I didn't get a picture of the chair before ACC, you'll have to settle for some pics of it in the booth. (And yes, you can actually sit in it!)

if i had a million dollars

I like to think about what I would do with my business if I won the lottery. High on my list would be to buy this building, an old train station in the next town over. Built in 1901, it still has many of the original architectural details.

How much would you love to have this as your studio?

studio in the snow

I have to admit, there's something nice about working away in the studio on a snowy day. The chair is almost done, I should finish the last panel tonight, and then I'll start assembling tomorrow. Hopefully it all comes together ok. Wish me luck!

shadows in the studio

It definitely sounds more poetic than shadows in the garage (since they are one and the same).

A brief moment of sun on this windy, wintry day.

Annie and Jill were both nice enough to help me out at the Gift Fair last week, and coincidently, both have necklaces I'm coveting.

1.28.08. - one a day challenge from imogene and annie.

empty the bucket

I'm tired of being in a state of constant stress and panic, so today I downloaded Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-free Productivity from iTunes to listen to in the studio.

I can't even tell you how helpful this is. Everyone should download it now. I can't wait to start organizing. (Words I never thought I'd say.)

One of my favorites ideas is dumping everything (ideas, email, etc.) into a "bucket" and everyday emptying the bucket. I liked this so much a immediately posted it on my studio wall. Now my new goal is to empty the bucket at the end of each work day.

Part of my empty the bucket goal is to blog everyday. And even though the picture quality isn't as good, I'm continuing taking photos with my iPhone. It makes blogging so much faster, which means I'll do it more, and isn't that the whole point.

wrong turn

Yesterday, while on the way to MAD, I took a wrong turn getting off the subway and stumbled on this little area. The entire time I was in New York, I kept thinking, "I could move here." Sadly, Joe never could. He requires a little more open space. (Oh wait, I mean a LOT more open space.)

So its back to work in my small town, PA studio.

i'm back

I'm back from the New York Gift Fair. I didn't realize how tired I was until I sat down to read the over 200 posts in my Google reader, and found I didn't want to get up off the couch. So I'm taking it easy tonight.

The show was really great. I learned so much, picked up some great new stores, and have a wonderful opportunity coming up in April. (More to come on that.) Thanks so much to Annie and Jill for helping me out.

Here are a few things from when I was gone...

-Corey is posting a lovely image everyday, and even better, she posted her family's famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. She's not lying when she says they are the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever. Perhaps I'll have to try to make them myself (thought they probably won't be quite as good as when Corey makes them).

-The wonderful Elsita wore my jewelry to the Producer's Guild dinner. Check out the pics here - you look so lovely Elsita!

Back to relaxing before I tackle my crazy to-do list tomorrow. Only a week and a half until ACC.
