I have not disappeared, still here but not as much...

Post by maggie on Wed Jun 15, 2011 10:29 pm

as I would like Sad I miss everyone and thought I would let you know why.


I have been running like a chicken without a head, school is almost out, there are parties and more parties, my daughter is graduating from 5th grade and I took a lot of projects around the house before my parents arrive at the end of the month.

I try to pop in but i get so overwhelmed with all the new posts and threads hahahaha you guys are really busy.

I think everyone is having a busy time- and that's good! It's wonderful to know that the forum (and all our buddies) will still be here when things slow down.

Right Sophie. Kim, my henna is finally gone. I got so many compliments on it. Gee Maggie, you have one birthday and you fall off the posting wagon! LoL. Gives me a chance to catch up on posts. How many do I need to catch up to you? 2000??

Glad to hear I am not the only one Smile I also think I will be more active in the fall/winter, specially with all the snow days.

Hahahaha Amira, you are so funny. I think if you start now you can catch up. wink wink

I didn't know you were doing henna, see? I missed that and I am sure so many other great things that were posted. I kind of feel like a bad friend for not being supportive Sad

@Maggie - I was teaching at FABAIC and I did henna on a whole bucketload of peeps and Flopsie managed to snag one! I wish I could have gotten everyone, but like some of the other instructors was saying...you just have to let it go. It is physically impossible to get everyone so try to just do what you can and remember to enjoy yourself. They were right! BUT it was AWESOME! I'll be doing a pre-class next year where I'll be going front to back! How to roll a cone, jaq bottles, ppd info, design layout and the differences between cultures and styles. Fast festival design breakdown, costs, displays, advertising, mixing tricks, brands and what they mean, farming methods and blow over, and that's just the tip of the iceburg! In my mind it's also going to be 'class driven' where what everyone wants to know will be brought to class and we'll touch on what is important and most useful to the group. VERY excited! AND in the cross over world, I'm teaching in California in October at a henna conference put on by HennaCaravan and I'm bringing my paints!!!!!!!

Maggie, I was just thinking of you and wondering where you went. I kinda miss you! I figured you were busy busy. I get that way sometimes too. The summer months are probably going to be busy for all of us, particularly on the weekends, right? This will be my first summer as a face painter and I'm already getting booked up!

Plus, If I'm missing for a few days here and there or just checking in and not posting it's because I'm also searching for a house. Ugh, I don't even know if I'm looking for a rental or purchase right now so I spend hours on the Internet searching through both.

Good to hear from you again Maggie, I'm glad you're doing well and are 'good busy' rather than the 'bad' sort Smile

You guys are all so incredible sweet! I think we all should live in the same zip code (pout)

Kim, Congratulations on the teaching, that is amazing...you are amazing!

CC, We do need to get together, you know I live so close to Ruth and we haven't met yet? We deserve a spanking HAHAHA!

Gina, I was wondering how were you doing after your post about moving, I think this is the right time to buy at least here in CT, there are so many options and the market has come down a lot more. I wish I could help you search for your next home.
I secretly love moving, a new adventure, a new place...I am constantly moving furniture around so I don't feel bored. I even signed up to receive daily alerts on houses for sale in my are, this is my fetish.

XOXOXO

Maggie,

Hi, you don't know me yet, but I have been so inspired by you and your positive, kind, and beautiful contributions for the last 6 months. I'm glad your busy. The people who hire you are lucky to get you.
Congrats to your daughter, my daughter just graduated High School(at 15, is determined to go to Harvard after her associates). Have fun with your parents.

Laurie

Thank you Rae!

Laurie, thank you so much for your beautiful comment, you just put a BIG smile on my face Very Happy
I wish I was busy with face painting, I have not touched my paints in a month, not sure what is going on but with all the stuff I have to do around the house and my husband away all the time I don't know if I would have time for painting, I think things happen for a reason and something good will come.

Congratulations to your daughter too, 15 and already graduated, you must be so proud.

Thanks for your sweet words again and I am looking forward on etting to know you Smile

Maggie I know what you mean.
For me the same, graduation for my son. Cleaning up the empty house of my husbands parents (almost a year now...) Birthdays, parties... and so on.
Having days you just don't want to do anything and one week with few things to do the other filled with all kinds of stuff like work, make-up and shoots.
Than trouble with our pc... grrrr.
Loading pages took forever.

Well, sometimes we only can check in some times.. Laughing

It annoyes me there is soooo much to read now.... do I have the time..?

Good to hear I'm not the only 'stupid busy' artist here! Very Happy

I really miss being on here regularly too...wishing you all a great summer and some 'downtime' fit in there at some point. I'll be forced to in July when we have our annual camping trip at a lake with NO INTERNET or cell access! Argh! How will I survive?

Hugs.
