Not sure what that means exactly but it is one of my husband's mid Western expressions that I find endearing. Usually said with exasperation at the difficulty of a task. Which would certainly be the case for me today. Yesterday consisted of spending the day with an adorable 14 month old. Today we are staying at a friends home in Saratoga while they are traveling. I brought along the IMAC, and the drawing tablet in preparation for spending days illustrating. And I am. But the tablet was rendered useless by forgetting to bring along the tablet pen. However beads can still be drawn and I'll 'pencil' in the thread path when I get home. But back to Man Alive.....this maybe the hardest bit of bead work to draw, the gradual curve and turned corner that I use to make triangles and ellipses.
