A Brand New Day

Looking forward to making more Altered Books. I have my favorites that I just will not part with, but I have 2 unfinished projects that are just craving a happy ending! So, while the re-organization of art/craft space is also still unfinished, I will plunge forward into the abyss of papers and yarns and fabrics and sparkly things and buttons....HERE I GO! WANT TO TAG ALONG?

YAY! The tulips are up, the mud is drying up, at least for now, and the birds are sweetly la la la...

All is right with the world! All of my little darlings are home at the same time, and I continue to be the BUSY BEE!

Projects are lining up. Sandy/Rosebud is keeping me inspired by her be-yoooo-t-ful hand painted envelopes that keep arriving in my mailbox. She's a tough one to keep up with.

Nina, Dear Friend, thank you for continuing to keep me mystified with the supply of incense that keeps me calm.

Is Spring Really Coming?

Wow, while cleaning up the muddy yard abit today, I noticed my tulips are peeking out! I always love the little glimmer of hope as they push their way upward through the winter leftovers. Seems like we had all of winter in one whole week. OK, DONE NOW! The birdies are out and about and singing, singing! la la la...

The studio reorganization is STILL in progress. The problem is, while sorting and organizing, I come across some snippet of paper, or book, or fabric that I slipped aside for that "anonymous" project and get bogged down wanting to do the project RIGHT NOW! So, though it does slow me down abit, I remember to put it in an appropriate spot for when the time is actually right.

I am currently enamoured with all the bits of yarn I have leftover from scarves and mitts. Some are just destined for some fabric ATC's. Perhaps I can entice the ladies of the Arty Tea Party to play along. Or maybe even a Fabric Book Round Robin! SOON, VERY SOON:)

I also, have a batch of old bookcovers just waiting for their very own story to unfold upon them. I can hardly wait for this project to begin. But, until the sorting and such is completed, I shall hold on to the reins and complete this mission that I started way too long ago!

Wow...snow, snow, and more snow...

It sure has been a snowfilled few days...power is back on, and we are still digging out, and trudging along! Oh, to live in the Northeast!

Be creative while having cabin fever! It makes for interesting art!
