I puttered around last night a bit but I've been fighting a cold and I am happy to report that I have won. It almost zapped me but then I was fine. Colloidal Silver and Vitamin C. Good stuff.
I played around but don't really have anything to show for it. I'm going to post something that I did a long time ago. I posted it on Craftster before I had a blog...and I also want to post my Mixed Media Memoirs piece. This week's thought was "I am Orange" referring to the second chapter in True Balance which speaks about the second chakra which is characterized by the color orange and, as I've already posted, has much to do with pleasure. This is a drawing that I did in bed right before I fell asleep. I didn't really think first. I just started drawing and this is what I ended up with. It's true though..I get the biggest kick out of swinging. I've done it a couple of times in parks this year and at first I felt so silly..a grown woman alone in a park, swinging. LOL But I think we could do away with a lot of therapy and xanax if more women would swing. (and I DO mean riding on that little chained thingy back and forth on the playground, not trading spouses). ;) Maybe kids are more aggressive today because they don't get to go out and swing and run and play like we did when we were children. They have nowhere to get rid of that excess emotion and energy. Try it sometime.
These other two pics are of a..hmm..I don't even know what to call it. It's a punch cup turned upside down, painted and trimmed with beads, fun fur and yarn for a braided ponytail. I can't really remember why I did it. Just looking for something to paint I guess. She sits on my bookshelf.
Today was date day. We did our usual. We went to Goodwill and I bought some packages of 5x7 art cards made for framing. 50cents a package with 4 sheets. Perfect for collaging. Some vintage looking stuff, too. I also got a thesaurus because I can't find mine. Oh, don't start. It's tiny. lol We went to Big Lots and I bought a ball of yarn and a hole punch. Then we went to A.C. Moore and-------are you sitting down?------I bought nothing! I know. Maybe I really am sick.
