Several evenings I did get started on art projects only to be frustrated and preoccupied. One night I even stayed up til 1 in the morning making "mistake" after "mistake", covering up and painting over, removing and changing. This morning I finally felt artsy in a not forced sort of way again and completed two pages in my round robin circle book that will go into the post on Monday.
The bottom piece has a pocket with a tag that comes out with directions for the book. It was a lot of fun giving this elegant little girl a pet birdie and butterfly. She is such a serious girl I thought she needed some friends and a bit of lighthardedness.
A view of the mess on my table. I love all the scraps left after a piece is completed. I save practically each and every tiny thing. Do you? Next on my list are a bunch of tags made from the scraps. I found a whole stash of manila folders just waiting to be cut into tags, maybe even dyed. I have read about dyeing with those cheap easter egg kits. Sounds like a good evening project with Olivia. As for this afternoon, while Olivia is at dance rehearsal I am off to meet my friend Marnie at an fine art show downtown. Doesn't that sound like fun! I will try and take plenty of pics.
I leave you with a quote I found on the Inspire Me Thursday site. It really struck a chord with me.
"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."
Henry David Thoreau
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
p.s. The detox is still going strong. I may let tomorrow be the last day though. I had forgotten about Memorial Day and the family cookout we are going to. I am undecided still as to what to do. I have tremendous relief from the joint pain though. I am really amazed.
