So here is what is on my work desk....
I wanted to have a play with some of the images I have painted recently
and explore the idea of a little journal book thingy ....
this is the first attempt, and while I had hoped to be much further along
Christmas season has started with a vengeance here
and there has been little or no time to be creative
Now I love all the fun of family and celebrations
I get a tad grumpy...
okay I turn into a complete and utter miserable whiny sod...
without the chance to paint or draw
so things have been a touch on edge...
hopefully I will get a little done on this each day
which will not only save my sanity...
but perhaps my marriage
and my whole family from feeling the wrath
of me deprived of creativity....
we all get like that
please tell me I am not the only one who turns into a complete cow when shut out of the studio!!!
So other than this....
and wrapping presents
and wrapping more presents
and more present wrapping
and avoiding more cleaning...
and spending time gazing into the oven to see if it has magically cleaned itself...
it hasn't by the way...
I have done just a little...
and I am not sure about the tack I am on with it...
I am sure it will all come together in its own way though, and
I did finish the tiles and string them onto necklaces
and I love them
I can't wait until after Christmas when I can get in and do some more
I have ideas crashing into each other in my head
so I feel that the year will be finishing with a session of pendant making...
and if things get too hairy I can always
settle down with the parcel of books that has arrived in the last few days
they look as though they are fan - freakin - tastic
and could be real sanity savers
and all of the wonderful stuff
So I hope you all have wonderful, safe
fun filled Holiday season
and thank you all so much for an incredible few months
for your comments and time
and for your inspiration and support
those are actually the warm little nuggets of wonderful
that will keep me sane over the next week...
If you feel like you are a bit short of Christmas cheer,
or need to feel alternately in awe of people and completely delighted by
other creative souls
head over to Stamping Ground
to see wonderful creative desks,
for some wonderful posts and blogs...
