*or in this case the bathroom sink. I keep messing with this photo because there is something I like about it. It’s just an ordinary bathroom sink drain, and maybe that’s what I find appealing. That I took a moment to notice something I don’t even register normally. I think I liked the way the bubbles collected by the drain and the repetitious pattern of the circles. I then layered a photo of creek ripples over the sink photo, and I liked the way it looks like the creek is in the drain. And this just makes me realize that I need to evaluate how I spend my time and, hello, explains why I don’t get things done.
Here’s something that took me FOREVER to get done. My Illuminated Phrase project. The date on this is September, 2008 – that is damned embarrassing! Please, let’s not talk about my major character flaw of meeting deadlines and being on time. All I can say is I’m trying *stubbing toe in the dirt, tail between my legs*. My phrase came about one day when Nate and I were having a conversation about eating at McDonald’s. He told me that eating their food, “Makes my breath smell like dead beetles.” Yes Nate, that is probably just one of many side effects of eating that food. I thought of some other things that could make your breath smell like dead beetles: lying, gossiping, swallowing your emotions, saying something you wish you could take back. I embroidered the phrase on the back of my art quilt. When I finished the mini quilt I framed it in a $2.00 frame I got at the thrift store.
