Just like Michael from the Halloween films, or a painful carbuncle, or your annoying cousin Lewis, or the relentless political ads (Thank you Lord we have arrived at election day)! It’s very hard to get rid of me….. Even trying to get ready for a garage sale (the two most evil words in the whole entire universe) will not keep me away this week. How else could I have thrown in this random image of a carnival ride or the following random image of a shopping cart in someone’s yard (well other than in flickr land I mean)?
Whilst I was gone I did manage to do some creative things, although none of them are finished yet – typical! And if anyone else is struggling with getting the Illuminated Phrase finished, no worries. Since I am in charge I decree the finish date as the last day of November. And I’m so dang excited because I DID IT! I successfully made my first batch of homemade yogurt. YUM. And I cooked quinoa for the first time too. Again YUM. And I cleaned out a closet, painted the hall, cleaned out my front flower bed, took kids to the orthodontist, and retrieved our stolen vehicle from the lock up. Saturday in the a.m. hours someone stole our Beast from the driveway and took it joy riding through someone’s barbed wire fence and abandoned it there in the field. Now I’m off to our insurance agent’s to give him the towing bill and other information. So, life, yeah, blah, blah, blah……..
Here are my works in progress, and I’m almost afraid to check in with you all as it may take me a few days to get back up to speed. And if you are in the Thanksgiving mood, check out the 30 days of gratitude.
Part of my Illuminated Phrase……..
Little people and their house pouch, soon to be on their way to a certain little girl in Singapore. Any recommendations on what to seal the painted dolls with – something child friendly and non-toxic?? Painting these little things takes nerves of steel! I’m not nearly steady or neat enough.
A felt cuff.
A soon to be origami crane mobile, made from an old atlas.
