And you'd think, as a former cataloger, I'd be more organized, but tax-time is looming and I have yet to organize all the million receipts and bits of this and that from last year. I've gotten as far as making various piles on the floor of my studio. They will torment me until I take care of them once and for all!
So....I'm here with a new piece and another older piece that has come out of the woodwork, so to speak....I don't know how I keep finding them, but I do. Often they are pieces that just hang out with me in the studio and I don't even "see" them any more. This little beeswaxed drawing, done back in Florida, was screaming out at me the other day...."hey, look at me...I'm a spring blossom!!!" Sure enough...all it needed was to be fitted onto a sheet of handmade paper for support and here she is, Spring Blossom! I'll list this tomorrow in my Etsy shop.
I found myself making another book page and was mid-way through it, moving along as I felt led, before I understood that this piece was called "Notes to Myself" and that it was all about the conflicting messages I send myself...."get new pieces made/relax, you're driving yourself too hard", "time is a'wasting/you have nothing but time", etc. etc. I think we all make "notes" to ourselves and I think they are often in conflict...no wonder I'm so tired!!! I just listed this piece in my shop here, so you can read a fuller description and see more detailed views.
I am going to try to force myself to take a break this weekend. I only hope the weather doesn't get nasty, as is predicted, so we can go on some kind of excursion....anything will do! Hope spring really is coming your way, because it's taken a detour and is nowhere close to arriving here!!!
Have a fine weekend and we'll see you Monday!
