Did an art inventory as I am beginning to place it all in the bins. I have 32 original pieces, or so, and between the purchased things and stuff I need to mount, that's about 100 or so. Not too many leftover from last year, a few. That's a day and a half, maybe two at best. We normally move about 500+ pieces of art. Crunchy crunch time.

If you ever wanted to donate art, this is truly the year to give your wayward pieces a home.

The last few weeks have been camping in the Australian outback which felt a bit like practise for constant dust everywhere, but more importantly...finally found tickets!!

Packing up my first aid box, working on a camp offering, painting the sign for said offering....

I finished a red muppet fur cocoon coat yesterday too. Pet me, I’m delicious.

First couple of cases of coconut water... burn pack 2018 has started. My living room is resigned to being a staging area as always (no garage, porch is full of camping gear).

Tickets & vehicle pass arrived, though I'm not home to admire them. (Dear friend is taking care of my plants and mail)

I've been on a road trip since 21 May (Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, couple of days camping near Albuquerque NM, Mesa Verde CO with 3 days camping near Durango, over a week in Kansas City MO, 2 days drive to Quebec City and Montreal for 2 weeks, great stay with our Delle & Kenny, in Montreal seeing another sister and 3 wonderful visits with my 93 year old Mom, 2 days drive back to KC MO, and an upcoming train ride back to AZ in 2 weeks).

Then, train back to KC in August, load up a rented van and head for the Dust!! Still not decided where we'll be camped, though it'll likely be one of 2 usual spots. The North Pole Shade has literally bit the dust, so no landmark there. Posting a pic of the camp and it'll have a smaller tipi-shaped green tent beside it, and some tapestries for shade walls... That may help, if anyone is wanting to find us. (We'll also be at BDC's Wednesday evening Meet'n'Greet, at 9:30/E, 6pm)

It's getting closer...... YAY!!

Oh... and Ratty, I love your patches! I hope there'll be a nice blue or red robot for me....
I'm taking notes on people's placements, and hope to find everyone I'm looking for.

Here's us at the Grand Canyon last year... my Sweetie (Scatter) and me:

Yesterday went thrift store shopping with some friends enablers, and picked up a mesh shawl, an interesting vest, a gold cardigan, silver shorts and a tux jacket that I'm going to figure out how to embellish and make into a more feminine cut.

Today I bought silver shoes, metallic skirts, and a silver jacket. I'm going metallic this year in keeping with the theme.

Took my playa bike to the neighborhood bike shop to get new tires and chain. When the bike mechanic saw me wheeling my bike up to the counter, he commented that this is the first playa bike he has seen without fur!

Found some very stiff 3/8" foamcore pieces in garbage that is perfect for stick on glossy material that I'm going to have my printing shop ink on some choice photos for our camp walls.

I started sorting my costume room. Found a big bunch of unfinished projects. Now I'm sewing hot pink accessories for the Census Lab. Bustles, tutus, hoods and headbands.
