This Is What I Live For

I've got a crazy schedule coming up... a HUGE commission.  I'm sure you guys won't see me for the next couple of weeks.  I love and hate working so intensely.  On one hand I get to test what I'm really capable of and push those limits.  On the other hand I'll really miss sleeping. LOL

Work Work Work
This is my work load for the next few weeks.  There are 82 crayons I have to carve by mid June.  This is by far the most I will have done in such a short amount of time.  I can't give more details now... but it rivals the US Cellular commercial!  WOW!

I have one week to make 30 crayons (1st Half in picture), then another two weeks to do the next 30 (2nd Half in picture).  From there I have four days to make 14 (Overtime in picture) and finally another four days to make the last 8 crayons (Sudden Death in pic).  In general it takes me 2-3 hours per crayons... but these will be made in duplicating sets of 6.  I'm hoping the repetition will speed up my process.  I have to make 3-4 a day.  That's 9-12 hours per day 7 days a week for the next few weeks.  Yeah Baby! Bring it on!

Brother Sister for Cathy

Brother Sister
Recent commission for Cathy.  These are her 2 children.

Happy Mother's Day or all the mothers out there, the toughest and most aggravating job in the world.  Mom, Grandma and I have decided to celebrate tomorrow (Monday) to avoid the crowded restaurants.  Love you mom ^_^
I just called mom and grandma to postpone our Mother's Day lunch to next Monday because of my huge workload this week.  Mom said OK, see you next week.  Grandma said, "Oh good!  I get to spread out my free lunches!"  I guess EVERYONE has been inviting grandma out to lunch for Mother's Day... she's had to postpone 2 different uncles! LOL  Next time I guess I need to schedule a date with her secretary.
