New Ideas and less time to create.

Greetings all! It's been so long since I posted i figured I'd best take some time to pop in and revive this little spot of creativity. I've been under a lot of overwhelming time constraints lately dealing with an injured family member and trying to keep up with everything else I normally do. Art and my close friends have been my link to sanity. I've been trying to prep for an art show at the end of October and that is starting to weigh heavily on my mind. I've got a few things in the works, but just don't know how I'm going to have enough time to get enough product done. Three things a night (if that) over a 30 day period does not an art show stock up make.

I'm trying my darnedest though. I've spent the last few days searching for things to turn into pin cushions. Here is the resulting first trials of this venture.

I'm not really sure if I'm going to carry on with the clear ones. I'm not sure I like the way they turn out. My friend however like it more than the others. I did five more last night, and will be posting pictures of those later. I've got a huge batch of fairies in the works, but I've got to split them between the show, the gallery and my artfire/etsy shops. I might just split them between the gallery and the show for now and worry about the websites later. However I fear missing a lot of good holiday shopping.

These are two postcards I did for an all pink postcard swap. It was fun working in shades of only one color. A bit of a challenge...but I think they turned out pretty neat.

Ok, it's off to do a bit of photography this morning and then get to some serious art work.

LOVE the final pincushions on artfire! Especially how you are being creative with what they were originally, which reminds me of the creativity of urns! :) Brilliant! :)
