projects & more
I wanted to show the project I have been working on lately. It is a collaborative type of project that involves 8 women and the subject matter is birds, feathers, nests, & eggs. Anahata sent 8 cigar boxes for us to do something with. I decided to decorate it and make a journal for it. She had made hers into a shrine that is really cool. It will be interesting to see what the other ladies do with theirs. Anyway...it is done and will be moving along soon.
In other news, I recently purchased a 1" button maker and a 3-1/2" one too because it makes coasters with your own artwork....oh and mirrors too. I want to start making some stuff as giveaways (for our orders) and do other stuff too. They've been fun to play around with.
I finished art & life six last tuesday which is why you haven't heard from me for awhile. I just had my nose to the grindstone and wasn't coming up for air until I was done. You still won't see it for about a month. The printer takes 2 weeks and the mailing house takes a few days and then the mail takes a couple of weeks. But it isn't due until december anyway...so expect it around the middle of december I'd guess.
I am starting a routine tommorrow where I have scheduled to "read & answer emails" twice a week. I feel they are overtaking my life and I haven't had time to do other things I want to do. So we will see how that goes (will be interesting since I recieve about 100 a day). I've basically divided the day into 2 parts. I will work on a specific area in the morning and another one in the afternoon...i.e...art & life, artfest, artfiberfest, collaborations, making stuff to sell, errands, emails, personal art projects, zettiology, web stuff (includes blogging), etc. It undoubtedly will take some tweaking but I am giving it my best shot (once again)...it's my ongoing nemesis...
