I have just launch my kickstarter campaign entitled... "Musicians Obsessed with Maps"!
see, I'm going on this epic journey, but without art to sell, I cannot hope to fuel my way across America... discovering solitude, loneliness, poetry, and personal growth... .and I do so want to find America.
Please check out the site above!.. click iiiiitt.
The campaign will run for 35 days, ending on my birthday, March 16th.
I dont think I have to tell you what I want for my birthday.... $2500!!!
But this isn't your typical NPR asking for donations fundraiser, oh no! That's not how kickstarter works...
you pledge an amount and in return you receive a reward... in this case, you'd be preordering the art to be printed. its exciting.
k... i have to have a drink to celebrate cuz I'm all butterfly in my tummy.

Flooring day! oh Flooring day, how I have waiting for you to come.
Despite the cold and the wind, we journeyed a very beaten path to Home Depot for supplies.
Here I am being a girl in home depot with a plan... callin the shots!
You there! Cut this foamular to my specifications!
I look so awesome in my sweat pants. I'm surprised chad lets me go out in public with them.
Back at the factory (the dream factory)... back in the back yard where grumbledor sits I began puzzle piecing the floor together. Remember the Tangigram game where you fit the triangles into the large rectangle? same thing. just bigger.
CONSTRUCTION NOTE: pink foamular is great stuff! use an exact-o knife to cut it, nothing else will do. But the exact-o knife will cut cut smoothly and accurately , you'll think you're working with pink butter!
Once I cut the basic shapes I trimmed, a little awkwardly at first, to fit the ribs of the van and along the wheel well.
CONSTRUCTION NOTE: Use newspaper to make your patterns! Its easier than you think to make custom cuts to fit curves and holes.
Awkward shapes can be further sanded or trimmed with the knife to fit perfectly. I managed to fit all the pieces flushed to each other except this one on the side, I figure I'll just fill the holes with some goopy goo later. I'm pretty proud overall.
Think of all the skills I learned today! I'll need them for next time when I do the same shape game with plywood. Break out the jigsaw!
