As I prep for a bookmark-making playtime at the library this weekend I've been making examples,
jumping to one of my art journals for a spread,
clearing some studio space for an unexpected guest (aka John/hubby/Mr. Fixit),
roaring back to the journal again,
heading over to a neglected love fest,
and settling back into the journal yet again.
I dream of being the kind of person who is focused, capably manages one task at a time, completes it and then basks in the feeling of job well done. Dream, of course, is the operative word!
Since you're here, I'll remind you that if you're in the area this weekend, it would be a great idea to sign up now (register and pay at the library) for the Library Love event. Using paper scraps, stamps, scissors, glue, gusto and a sense of adventure, we're going to create bookmarks to be donated to the library, who can then offer them to readers in exchange for a donation. Three ways for us to win - creativity, community giving and clearing of some of the prodigious paper stash in my studio. What could be better! The $5 supply cost is the best money you'll ever spend for hours of mixed media play.
