a sick day

today i am -
sick with a nasty cold,
checking out my new sewing machine,
making paper snowflakes,
my sisters last year present -
the love pillow,
ordering some online gifts,
designing invitations for our year end dinner,
researching a pillow design,
crocheting a market bag for my mom,
& painting some tiny canvas ornaments.
i am loving
getting ready for the holidays.
it is busy -
i wouldn't have it any other way.

an art swap

i recently participated in an art swap.
it was based on
a recent online class that i took
called 'bloom true'.
i was a scared
putting my name on that list -
because it had a deadline -
and i hadn't completed
one painting that i had started in that class yet,
and i was struggling to paint something
that i liked.
i am so glad i participated -
it forced me to create
i had to work with the deadline -
i pushed through the struggles i had,
and i completed 16 mini paintings.
i added the outlines of flowers and leaves.
and in the end
i added a word to each painting.
using the word 'grow' -
and my trusty thesaurus.
i felt like i was really 'getting it'.
there were 16 participants
so i got to keep one painting for myself.
i chose this one to keep -
'swell' -

because it was the only one 
i felt moved beyond my original intention.
which was what the class was all about -
painting with no end in mind,
and using your intuition.

i even had extra time
to add some little goodies
to each package.

today is the deadline
and i am on my way to post them.

a last minute

i'm thinking -
the last week of november
is not a good time
to be looking through
knitting and crochet project books -
to get ideas for gifts to make.

but, typically -
last minute
is how i roll.
