Week 37 of 48

October 18, 2010

After taking a couple weeks off, I’m back! I spent a week working and playing way too hard and ended up making myself sick just in time for my trip to Denver. This meant I barely reached my goal in terms of what I wanted set up before leaving, but despite the sick haze, I scraped by with the bare minimum. Then I took a whole week off (for the first time all year!) for my cousin’s wedding and spent a ton of time with a lot of my extended family. It was a great little vacation, but now it’s time to get back to work… Unfortunately, I came back to some pretty gross stuff—I’ll share the good studio stuff next week, but for now, the gross:

Mold! This experimental tank of brown sugar solution didn't work very well in terms of crystal formation—instead it grew a layer of mold!

when I drained the solution out to clean the tank, the mold stuck to the knit

and the sides of the tank... it was actually hard to clean off!

If you follow my twitter feed, you'll know I found a mouse in my studio the weekend before I left

—it managed to escape death by candy, but apparently it came back and brought a friend while I was gone...

this time they were not so lucky 😦

Needless to say, I spent my first 12 hours back in studio cleaning up the candy death trap…
