a choice... a journey not a destination... different things to different people... better than sorrow

Just checking in again...
Well, working crazy hours and not getting much play time. In May I'm going to Donna Downey's Inspired Artist Workshop and as a part of that I thought I didn't already have enough to do so signed up for a charm swap and ATC swap. so Sunday I started working on making a charm using friendly plastic. I watched hours of YouTube for ideas and technical details on Friday and Saturday night and after all that all I came up with was this sad little round thing with a little embellishment that ended up looking like eyes and a mouth. I couldn't even stand to take a picture of it. So my next round is going to involve washers from the hardware store. Hopefully I can manage something I'll be happy with since my deadlines are closing in fast. Whew! Now I'm stressed out. Must need a nice serene beach scene.
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
