You know when you just want to get started already!!!!!! Agh!!!!!!! I am so tiered of starting and then stopping. Trying to keep everything moving is becoming a drag. One of my challenge this week has been getting pictures posted this week without the internet at home. I used to just carry a cd-r on me back and forth, if I couldn't get things to work at home. Well now the burner will not work. I don't know why. On one Pc it goes throughthe whole process tells you the cd has burned and all. and then I get to my moms not pics!!!!! The other Pc doesn't even try to burn it tells youthat it can't recognize the media (the blank cd)!!! I've gone through a whole case of cds and can't get one disc of pics!!!!!! needless to say I've left that alone for the time being right? It's holiday time. I don't feel festive. Enough said? Ba humbug! I know right? I'm supposed to be baking and making a few things including cookies for Christmas and Kwanza. I'm not motivated. I did manage to put decor in our yard and put a few candles out. Next on the list? Oh yes. I'm at work and my art supplies are at home!!!! I feel so creative at work and ideas are flying and I'm writing things down but, by time I get home I go into mom mode cook clean feed everybody and it's time for bed. I'm pretty sure if I could manage to stay awake past 9 soemthing could happen. But yea my house pretty much shuts down. What do I do? And my on going list of projects is still growing. Pre- holiday:Cards to give. I was thingk of creating aline of cards with no particular theme or reason to them. People could purchase what appealed to them and the reasonthey were purchasing, like thinking of you cards. Pictures (painting/collage) painting and collage as you may know is a new venture for me. So i'm just eager to create. I made a few interesting pieces this past weekend, but due to the current state of my Pc I have no pics. I have 3 projects in mind and I am gathering items for them now. Jewelry,bracelets, earrings. You know jewelry is my first love although I think that painting is pulling at the coat tales. I just want to sit and create multiple pieces like I did when I first started. I used to sit down for an hour or 2 and go into this creative transe. It was great!! Current- due for holiday: Jewelry, I have a watch, 2 bracelets, a set of waist beads, necklace and earring set on order. Painting, I have just one that I know of, but 3 have been propsed. Cookies, at least 5 dozen, 4 different kinds. I have at least 20 holiday cards to make. Oh and I would liek to give an artist friend of mine a paper stack. And I'm off!!!!!!!! Happy creating!!!
