Good grief, what was I thinking?

I've been thinking that I want to ease back into scribing.  There's something inherently wrong with the fact that my drawing board has dust on it.  So I took on a pair of Tyger's Cub scrolls.  They're for Coronation which is April-ish.  Plenty of time.  I've picked out a layout and it's fairly simple, but elegant.  Even better, I'm trading calligraphy for babysitting.  Pretty good, eh?

I figured that would be a good "baby step" to ease back into art in the new Life with Baby.

Therefore it's completely logical that I would request a Pelican assignment for Mudthaw in March, right?

Ye god and little green apples - talk about jumping in the deep end!  I'll be starting NOW.  I'm going to start working on the text this afternoon, and I intend to have a layout selected by the end of the week.

Oh, and I should start a batch of glair right now also - my last batch went moldy on me and I had to use yolk to make egg tempera paint for the last document instead of glair.  And I have to dig out a piece of vellum... and check my gold leaf supplies... and make sure that I've got hydrated pigments...

I'm going to be organized and manage my time if it kills someone!

Maybe we could hang out sometime, so I don't keep your husband on the phone for 2 1/2 hours again. ;)

I was genuinely interested in the conversation, as I always am with you guys. But I'd rather not be a distraction, if we do get together. I'm not sure of next month's schedule, but if time allows, I'm up for getting together and scribing or making stuff if you are.

See you at the meeting tonight? So far, sounds like we're on. Ryan's coming with me.

No worries - if I'd needed him I would have hollered.

Once lettering is done I can chatter away while painting. Company while working is a novel concept - we should definitely try it.

We'll be at meeting, although the baby has a cold so I'm not sure how it's all going to pan out. We'll be there to start at the very least.

...but you love him .

I'm relatively broke and have no time, but I'm still making the medallion.

It's just what we do.

Yep. I do. The only thing better than making a piece for a righteous award, is doing it for someone you love.

I've got a couple of ideas for layout. I intend to indulge myself.

It's about time the scroll fairy came out of "retirement"! Good for you. Sorry I missed you at 12th night. (I was staying home with potentially frozen pipes AGAIN). Sent Rod to go see friends. Go you!

I had something a little more gradual in mind. But this will be good.

Missed you at 12th Night. Rod promised Charlotte that he'd teach her to blow things up, so all is well. Any chance we'll see you at Birka?
