The cold weather really has made me take things a bit more slowly. I’m a bit more reluctant to go out and take my walks, ’cause it’s COLD out there! I’m more likely to sit and knit something than go down to the studio and sew…it’s COLD down there. At least it feels colder, unless I’m concentrating hard on something. Then I don’t even notice!
I just seem less likely to be creative at this time of year. It’s busy with holiday stuff and my free time seems like it needs to be devoted to rest and relaxation. I’m finally old enough and wise enough to indulge myself in some of that rest and relaxation. Hectic holidays are now to be avoided and I like it that way.
Finishing up a few things–those annoying final details–that’s about my speed for the month of December. I finished up my postcards for the upcoming exchange. My only objective was to have some sewing through the paper on each one.
Once I found an idea that I liked, I just kept making similar cards and I’m happy with them. I’m glad there was an ‘extra’ in the package for one to keep, because I really made one that is AWFUL! Didn’t matter what I did–it’s just plain ugly!
Oh, yeah…I’ll show you that, too! I freely admit to my mistakes!
Yep–bad, bad, bad. OH–I’m sorry if that hurt your eyes!
I did manage to spend 5 minutes and glue this piece to the canvas and now it’s ready to hang. You know, I give pieces names because that’s what “artists” are supposed to do with their work. The problem is that the names are rarely so meaningful to me that I remember what those names are. I always have to write them down, put them on the label, look them up…
I think I had a title for this one, but I sure can’t remember it! Does it really matter to most people? Can I just pick a word at random and say that is the title? Does it have to feel like a clue to some deep, inner meaning?
Do you name all your pieces?
Do you have deep, inner meanings to all the work you create?
Linking this to Off the Wall Friday, where there is always lots of inspiration!
