2010! dang!

hi there,

now it’s 2010. how strange! a new decade, and some new fun things to do! whoo hoo!

i just wanted to post something on jan 1 2010, for fun. not that i’ve got too much new to say this second. a few things i guess.

i just got back from trying to go to the movies, but no luck! it’s a holiday, and the movie was sold out! avatar in 3D, and we tried to go to a matinee, which is still really expensive, so we are going on sunday instead. and we almost went rollerskating, but realized that it is a rainy holiday so the rink will be full of little kids and we are clumsy and (i in particular) might fall on them. i have done it before. i do not want to injure anyone, or myself. so no.

but i think we are going on an outing soon anyhow. or maybe i’ll make more plastic bag yarn and casey will continue to work on that program he’s been working on 12 hours a day for the past 2 weeks… who knows, we’ll see what happens.

here is a picture of the plastic bag yarn i’ve just made.

i’m consolidating things, turning that giant pile of plastic that is my life into a smaller pile of plastic yarn balls. more useful. and i’m glad to have it wrangled, or beginning to be wrangled, so the art process will be more easy afterward. i’ve spent 10 or 15 hours in the past week cutting and looping and winding this huge amount of brown bags into double thick yarn. i also made 10 smallish balls of many colored yarn (well, like a pink ball, a yellow ball, a black ball, a blue ball, a “clear” ball – which is not clear after it is yarn that is crochet). also i’ve been working on finishing the last season of ‘buffy the vampire slayer’ while i make yarn. intense. that is a long series. i love it! it took me over 10 yeas after the series was on ty to actually watch it though. a few good friends convinced me how great it is finally. i love the multnomah county library, they have everything! i wish i could jump kick monsters in the throat like buffy, but i’ll just save the world in other ways. leave that kicky stuff up to someone else.

so here is a photo of my newest pile of yarn balls.

oh! i think i hear the sump pump in the basement. i should go check on my paintings down there. i’ve got this really big one, one of my favorites, on a couple guitar stands in a room with a hole in the floor. anyone want to buy it? anyone with a big wall? it’s really good and really big and needs a home. i’ll look for a picture of that to post too…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love, Katie

this painting is looking for a new dry home.

that last picture, the “www.katiespain.com” part is superimposed, it’s not like that in real life, in case you are interested. let me know and we can negotiate. it’s maybe 5 feet tall by 8 feet long.
