Seems like I always need more time, today unfortunately was full of appointments and little time for creativity. However, it didn't stop my brain from doing any while waiting at the doctors office!  have a few ideas rolling around hopefully I can get them on paper before I lose them!

So I decided to put this one in the show instead of the earrings I listed before. I am putting it up for sale too. Jason made a good point I have been creating like crazy and I haven't sold but a few of my pieces. I should give someone the opportunity to buy  it at the art show if I can.  Sad to see it go, but I have pictures if it does!

Entering an art show!

So I think these are three I am entering tomorrow at a local art show here in Indiana. It has been a long time since I have been in a art show that is judged and displayed. I am of course nervous. I hope that one at least makes it into the show! I did add hooks to the marble earrings, just was lazy this morning and didn't want to take a picture! Mondays.....

Wishing I had the proper tools.

I wish I had all the equipment I had in college. I would have made these little windows myself and a lot better.  The latch wouldn't tighten and I broke two. They are now being glued in my bench clamp. Finally using that tool!:)   But, still I think these might be a good idea regardless!

Ok, don't let me go into the craft store!

  I am always going to the store and finding stuff I was not planning on getting. I have a seriously bad thing called a creative monster.  I of course bought them and now going to make them right after I type this! I found these at Hobby lobby and will be making my knitted necklaces with colored beads to go with these. But I am inserting hand dyed silk pieces in the glass window pendants! They are going to be very colorful and fun! I am excited!

Here is the start of that rug, just a section of  the background but a start none the less!
I am excited about these too. I am using vintage marbles and going to make these into dangle earrings!

So the work begins!

  I have been for weeks wanting to get started on some paintings. I just now am getting the urea water made. What is urea water? Lets just say if the that water doesn't get made there will be no silk painting going on! Well, when I finally have time to do it! This is one of last years paintings. Peonies in a vase.
  My floor cloth rug painting has some sketches on it finally but no paint. I think once I get the urea water done( it has to cool), so that will be put off until tomorrow then. So maybe I'll crack open a tube of acrylics and just go paint crazy on that rug!
