MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Alcohol inks postcard

I am jumping in now before I get lost.... yep I did say lost!! I HAVE to clear out my craft room because I am getting workmen in to do some work soon and so far it's taken me almost two days and at this rate another two months won't see it clear because I keep finding things and having to

How I have the nerve to buy ANY new goodies is beyond me and if you could see my room you would understand what I mean... I can't walk...I have to climb over boxes, tubs and the stash destined to fill them and OMG what a chore it is turning out to be. I'm not getting any time to play and I want to...especially since I found some papers I had forgotten about and a Basic Grey notch tool (now how on earth did I forget that I had that...I haven't even used it!!!)

I seem to keep moving things from one place to another and making more mess than I started with... even though I have filled 3 huge bin bags with rubbish....eeeeeek how bad is that.

Well sitting here isn't going to get the job done... I guess I'm just putting off the inevitable so just a postcard today that I made a while ago... says it all really :D

I am dreaming of a lovely tidy (know where I can find things) room...
I am wishing that I had half a dozen fairies to help me get it that way...
and I believe when it's all done I will be a happier
So if you've got any fairies that you'd like to send along to help me with my mission... now's the time to do it ;-)

I was laughing when I read this because I'm sure that I can relate to the boxes and other goodies that trip me. How many times have I stubbed a toe on some dear art supply? Sure hope that all goes well. This piece is truly stunning. What a divine combination of elements on it. Hugs to you...

Oh honey I honestly do know how you feel.. my craft room is a bomb site at the moment. Started clearing it a few days ago, had a sore day yesterday so nothing got done & I've been out most of the day today. Got 1 or 2 cards to make tonight so the room will have to wait until tomorrow...
It will definately take me a month or two to get rid of the old & make way for the new...

Kim Costello said...

Gorgeous postcard love the bright colours and as for the fairies I NEED them too! But it's possible they'll leave a glittery trail of dust... then I'd get distracted finding a way use it on a card!
Good luck you'll love it when it's done! Kim :)
