I've managed to have a nice weekend with a little creative time and a little to do list time. Saturday I spent some time with one of my best friends, Rebecca, hanging at Michael's for a crop. I started a diptych collage but only got as far as some preliminary layers of paint so no pictures yet. I seem to be in a girly phase with pinks. Rebecca did a couple of lovely layouts that I'm sure she'll be posting soon.
Yesterday I installed a new light over my craft table (old gold chandalier v new brushed nickle). The shades are more beige than the white in the picture. Did laundry and vacuumed. Still need to mop but it can wait a bit longer. Don't want to get too crazy with the to do list stuff.
Inspired last year was with Margie Romney-Aslett where we refolded a manila folder into an accordion type thing. We only got a little way done with it because she concentrated more on some techniques like the rosettes. As I was working on it in class I decided I would make it for my sister. Didn't have her future birthday in mind but by the time I actually finished it that's what happened. I made a couple of tag notes to go in it where I wrote her some personal messages. There was one bird in the original design but I decided to add some more and a couple of butterflies scattered in. My sister is one of those special people who is just a love bug and who has been going through a lot of personal painful stuff. For me the birds and the butterfly are a symbol of good changes to come for her where she morphs into a new her with wings to fly and become who she wants to be. Love you bunches and bunches Sher-bear.
