Well to say I've been a busy beaver would be putting it mildly! LOL. This past week has been tremendous, stressful, fun, dynamic and heart pulling. I mean it. I have experienced every emotion an Artist can experience and continue to create LOL. But ya know I have to keep on keeping on! LOL. So to that end... I spoiled myself this week and bought a freakin' huge Easel! It took me 2 hours to put it together and I'm one of those people that just like to make it happen so of course I wasn't really paying attention to the instructions until I got it together and the entire thing fell apart LOL. One metal bar after another, Clanking and Clinging, making the racket of all rackets! Since it was late I'm sure my neighbors appreciated that LOL. Ooops. Anyway, the one I had before was the kind with the Tripod legs. Well that works fine until you try to paint a huge picture LOL. After a couple of times of the easel toppling almost taking me with it, and the painting hitting the ground I'd had it! Yikes! So I went out and bought one with a solid base that reaches the sky! Okay well maybe almost to the ceiling. But I just love it. Now it's on! Its back on track.
I played with Paper Clay at Tangerine with my friend Gina and her handsome artistic son who was creating an Italian meal out of paper and string for a school project. I wish I had taken a pic. It was too cool. Gina makes the cutest dolls from paper clay. I'm always amazed when shes finished.
Today I went to my friend Janettes store Pleasant Memories and spread my stuff out on her work table and got creative and it was so much fun. Her kids were there and as expected with many Artists children, they are artistic and creative! I brought rubber stamps so they had a blast too. I never work with anyone when creating so its a unique experience for me. It was fun to just sit and chat it up as I created Handmade Journals. I actually got more done than I would had I been home. Too many fun and creative distractions LOL. Paints, Rubber stamps, GlimmerMist, Wax, Alcohol Inks, Tim Holtz Masks, Trillions of pieces of colorful patterned and textured papers (really scroll down and see pics of my Studio LOL) oh and then theres the Cricut, the Bind it All, The Dremel, Sewing Machine... oh my goodness the Neurotic Poster returns!
Now I'm listening to everything from Old School, to Soft Rock From Teena Marie to Eminem and Flo Rida! LOL. Does anyone remember Nazareth, Love Hurts? LOL. Yes its playing.
Oh yeah, I also had a friend visit for the weekend and she and I went to a Anita Baker concert last weekend. Oh my. This lady just has the most beautiful voice!!! Oh my.
