First I want to thank you all for your comments. I do appreciate every one of you that visits me and take the time to say hello and write! I don't always get around quickly to all the blogs, but I will as soon as I can. I had a little mishap late nite, really not major, but I hurt both of my wrists while trying to tighten the screws on a wobbly tray table that I was unfolding to sit next to my hubby and work on my 1" squares. As some of you know, I sit with my hubby at night in our family room and do some of my collaging on my lap desk. Well, I wanted to use the tray table last night instead, and being the way I am, I got sidetracked and decided to fix the wobble. Well, I layed the tray table down, went to tight the screw and "SNAP' the tray (which is heavy formica like material) smacked down on the top of my wrists instantly bruising me. They still hurt like no other but I can move fine, etc. I know I need to take something today because it's still bothering me, especially when I type, argh! So anyway, my wings are a little bent and bruised but I had to write today to share a few things with you all.
Last nite I made 9 1" squares. Oh, it's so much fun. I am going to play more with them this weekend and I want to do some in a Christmas theme. As I said before, by next week I'd like to have them together on something, probably a frame.
The other thing I wanted to mention, ofcourse, is that it's the end of Art Everyday Month! I cannot believe it. Thank you SO much to Leah (Kat) for encouraging me to join and for being so instrumental in gathering groups of art friends together in which great things always happen! It's been an awesome month. Thank you for encouraging me and many others.
Now, as promised, I have some pics to share of some fantastic finds at an antique mall earlier this week. You can see all of my finds in my flickr album. They includes vintage christmas cards (gorgeous one's, $3 for a bag! I scored big!), ephemera including old postcards and letters, some stamps, lots of junk to create with this month!Plus a few nice holders for art junk in my little "studio". I just love creating with old things. I am working on my first little shrine/assemblage/box, whatever you call it. It's basically a little open box I'm collaging. I will share with you as soon as I'm done!
I don't know what my art plans will be this month, but I know it will involve squares!!! lol! I wish you all another productive month where you let your creativity flourish and you share the beauty of it with others. Every day can be artful and fulfilling. It is ultimately up to us to listen to our muse, follow our bliss and make our worlds a bit more colorful, a bit more creative and a whole lot happier!
