I obviously failed miserably at keeping my New Years resolution to post more on my blog… Ive also only been to the gym once this year and that took a lot of peer pressure. Ive been absorbed with applying to Grad School, projects for my children’s school and an attempt at learning how to relax and taking some mental health days (that last one is slow going).

The good news is that Ive been accepted to the Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) to obtain my Masters degree! Woo! Starting this summer I will be going back and forth between Savannah and Philly doing grad work, which I am thoroughly pumped about.

Ive also been invited to participate in this years “Tiny Trifecta” at the Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn opening June 6…. I will be there toting children and all so I hope to see some old buddies that weekend.

Some things Ive done (or am doing) lately:

I made this psychotic hat for one of my children, as they need a hat with one hundred things on it for their 100th day of school.

The Holidays are Nigh

And I am in full Holiday panic mode. I am cooking a whole Turkey myself this year and considering I tend to destroy meat I am slightly nervous about it.

But I did manage to get a few things done, and I participated in Desotorow’s Junk in the trunk show the other day (thanks again to everyone who made it out!).

It was very cold.

For those of you who couldn’t make it out I will be putting all sorts of new things on my etsy site by weeks end… including Jewelry, Embroidered prints, screen prints, open edition prints (did I say prints?) and limited edition giclees… If you are interested in an original painting you’ve seen please feel free to email me at KelleyHagemes@gmail.com for availability and prices…

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
