It's been too long since my last has been very busy.  I'm in the middle of posts will be sporadic at best. 
I will be back, just have to get over this hurdle.  Happy Spring! 

Sunday, February 7, 2010's almost here again

I actually dislike Valentine's should be more spontaneous...not so planned out for us.  This said...I did enjoy working up several designs for cards last year...which are still available in my ArtFire Studio to be given at anytime of the year!

New Art for the New Year...
My First Mandala

Not truly my first as I love to do circular designs but this was the first time the intention was there to call it a Mandala.  Many of my needle work designs revolve around a center starting point but not to many end up with a circular border.  In needle work...circular is a bear to have finished.  Framers will develop that thinking crease between their eyebrows and you'll develop one when you hear how much a finisher would charge to turn it into a pillow.  To avoid that...I give most of my designs square or rectangular perimeters.  Avoiding botox at all cost!
So...let me know what you think.  I enjoyed this exercise, thinking I would like to create more of them in the future.

Time to Un-Deck the halls....

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have your own personal 'Elf' to help out some days.  Even better, wouldn't it be grand to have the energy to do it all yourself!  Today I crawled out of bed late, thinking about the fact that my break is almost at an end.  It's been marvelous, I have accomplished a lot and helped Brad out too, so I played his 'Elf' for a bit.  Will tell you that I lost track of how many holes I drilled in Ceiling Train parts or how much I'm missing the bit of skin off a finger due to learning that hot glue, no matter how much it hurts should be left on the finger until cooled.  So, ha!, I learned something new as well. 
I drew my help above, isn't she sweet?  Life is grand and the tree is smallish, won't take long to put all back in their boxes.  Then up in the attic for another year.  I think most of the fun in this is opening that box of ornaments to rediscover each holiday season. 
Happy New Year Everyone, you have the power to make it magical.
