Art Night Question

I have a project that I think is super fun. It is a St. Patrick's Day Victorian style cone. Do you guys want to move class to this week so you can display this longer? Let me know if you want to come this week and do this project.

Craft Night Project

How do I make my title pic smaller?

Cleaning out My Studio

Wow! How did I collect so much stuff? Could it be the result of all those years of obsessive, impulsive shopping. Surely not. It is a little ridiculous. I could probably not buy another thing and have enough stuff to do an art project a day for a year. I will post pics when we are finished. My sweet daughter in law is leading this little clean up. I told her tonight that we should have taken before pictures and I offered to throw everything back on the floor, but she refused to have any part of that. Bummer. If anyone has some cool storage ideas for art supplies I would LOVE to hear about them. Hopefully we will be finished by craft night. Fingers crossed!

Thinking too much

Sometimes I think my brain gets in the way of my creative process. I always think there has to be meaning in every little detail. I wear myself out sometimes before I even get started. Lately, I have just been creating for the sake of creating and it seems to be working. Part of me goes in to every piece whether I think about it or not. Colors that I love. Shapes that I like. When I'm done if I enjoy looking at it then that's all the meaning I need.
