I know, I know. It's ridiculously clean! No creative person would have a worktable this clean! But wait...there's more.
I had just rearranged and tidied up because I was getting ready to diecut a bunch of that cardboard packaging I'd been salvaging. After diecutting it, I embossed everything--so cute. I was excited to paint it all.
I painted the first round of diecutting a fun bronzy pinkish color and added glitter. It's all drying now. Then I'll use some cheap hairspray as my fixative. On a side note, during all this, my cat Joseph wanted me to comb him. (He's addicted to being combed, go figure.) So he hopped up on the counter as we always do, and I gave him a good wet combing which he loves. I petted him, he hopped down. And as he happily sauntered away I noticed his rear parts were a bit sparkly. Oops. Note to self: wash the glitter off your hands before combing the cat's butt!
I'm also cutting teacups out of some of my pretty paper for a little project.
And I'm tearing down some watercolor paper for little paintings and cards.
I've crocheted some necklace cords for pendants out of that Hemp cord I got at Wal-Mart for about 3 dollars--I love that stuff. There are four colors in the package, so I'm buying some more!
I love this piece of furniture right here. It is one of the things in my crafty corner that keeps me super organized--every drawer is dedicated to specific crafty items. I know where everything is because I use all my stuff, all the time.
When I need to be on the go, I love this organizing bag I got on sale at Hobby Lobby. It has several zipper pages inside so that I can fit in watercolors, paintbrushes, markers, art journal, fabric, embroidery floss, scissors, needles, and even a seam ripper! I also have knitting in here. So I could just grab this bag, not even think about it, and know that I have something with me I can create.
It's such a busy time of year, because I picked a lot of tomatoes and peppers this weekend and within hours had canned a few dozen jars of salsa. I love that it's all organic and mostly from my garden. Wooh! My post is toooo long--sorry Julia! Have a wonderful week lovelies.
