Summer Studio Time ...

It is time to take a blogging break and put the kettle on
now normally it would be for tea
but in this case I think I am going to be needing coffee
which conveniently gives me an excuse to draw the little espresso pot
that is so inviting
I am going to need it to help me through all the things that are piled on my desk
which means I will be spending the next week bouncing around like a demented bunny
fuelled on unfamiliar levels of caffeine and familiar levels of chocolate
I will be checking things off my list
getting work into the post and getting busy on the zine
paint will be flying
brushes and pens will be working at break neck pace
and in between that I will be taking time out to sleep in
to not make a lunch box for Phantom  
and to not iron uniforms
or any of those other things that go with school
instead it is all about the first week of Summer holidays 

see you all in a week...xx

Just because I won't be blogging for the next week
doesn't mean that I didn't blog this last week
so here are some of the links...

I love my expresso pot too, caffine can make you fly! hope you get all your work done in the coming week.

Jennifer McLean said...

so glad to hear you're taking a break, although all that art doesn't sound "breaky", LOL.

Don't work too hard and remember, black tea has a bunch of caffeine too so you don't have to suffer coffee, ;o) ... although that coffee pot does look smashing!
Much love my friend,
~J

Have fun during your break! With work waiting to be completed, it's understandable for you to be using your time completing those than blogging. Blogging does take up lots of time! :-) We'll catch up with you here soon!

So wild to hear you are thinking summer- I'm starting to think winter here. Isn't it fab that distances don't mean a thing thanks to the internet?! Enjoy your pot of coffee and getting wings attached so you can fly next week! Happy PPF ( a bit later than Friday)!

Oh gods! Please tell us you're not serious about drinking coffee, I'm not sure that the world is ready for a caffeine powered TFK!

Enjoy the break, and we'll see you when you're back.

Love your work! Enjoy your break!

Colleayn said...

It's funny to read "Summer Studio Time" when it is 21 degrees (F) here. I would give anything for some outside warmth. I hope you get some down time on your break.

Tammie Lee said...

Coffee drinker that I am I have never had espresso. I do grind the beans, but am pretty boring with my black coffee, I guess. Lovely espresso pot! Enjoy your creative break! :) :)

Your beautiful "cafetera" (as we call it in Spanish) brought back memories of my great aunt making café con leche (espresso and milk) for me as a child. Very sweet image, thank you. :)

Enjoy your blog break, Tracey! Don't work yourself too hard now....gotta put the feet up by the pool some of the time. ;) Great sketch of the espresso-pot! xx

Melisa said...

Love the little pot! Isn't it weird to have summer in December with Christmas and (fake) snowmen and stuff? Now that I think of it, it IS winter here and it's been in the 70s all week. I guess that's weird, too. I hope youare having a productive week!

You can imagine my wide grin and nodding head at the "not iron uniforms" line. :D *bliss*
See you when you come back. *opens umbrella to avoid flying paint*

Hope you get lots of things checked off your "to do" list so you can enjoy a little down time as well!
