ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

"Will I see you in September?"

Here are a few quick updates from the home of Ragtags Studio Central:

#1 Even though he won't read this, Happy Birthday, Dad. 74 - how can that even be possible?

#2 I will draw names for BOXES of prizes, and announce winners (explained in the previous post) tonight, but will not mail out packages until the third week in September, after I'm back from California (for the In This House at the A Studio Gallery opening and The Two-Story House class at Zinnia) and New Mexico (for Jay's wedding on the 15th).

#3 Our nieces Ryan and the above-mentioned Jay have been here for the past few days for their friend Cat's wedding. Jay leaves this afternoon, Ryan tomorrow. I am distracted.

#4 I did a last minute second card for Red's current Tarot deck project, the back is mostly thanks to one of Anahata Katkin's Spare Parts compilations:

#5 Oh no, oh no- I am suddenly beginning to realize I have SO MUCH TO DO . . . and so little time in which to do it . . .
