Daily art--that's a lofty goal of mine. I've been creating new pages in my Smash Book every day--art journal style--and painting and destroying an old book to be reborn as next year's art journal. It's very satisfying to have my art supplies out every day--painting, writing, and gluing away. It also motivates me to buy and try a variety of new coloring tools. I think I'm finally in touch with my inner six-year-old who was never seen without her crayons and coloring book. They went to bed with me and before the sandman had left my sleepy eyes, I was busy at my "desk" (an old converted night-stand) coloring away.
While I'm hanging around my castle this weekend (see, art journaling does things to you--like making you call your house your "castle") I'm going to stitch a few knit squares together for a mixed-media project, and contribute to my art journal, and plan out some handmade Christmas cards for this year. But I think I'm most excited about working on a little fabric scraps ATC to send to my lovely Jan across the pond! The sun will be shining here in the Ozarks--there will be a shopping trip to Kohls (I'm addicted to low-price Vera Wang) and there may actually be some housework--err--castlework accomplished!
This weekend: Eat out...Write in... Dream it up... Stitch it down.
