The hippo book mark for my Dad I promised to show you.
Presents to my family are usually slightly more "cutesy " than my normal
For weeks I couldn't wait for my Happy New Years 2014 Post! Because,
I was so excited about
work on out of my sketch book , the workshops that I had been
dreaming up and chomping at the bit to share with you were going to get filmed, and edited, The new directions for me in creating, etc etc. But , then all of the sudden it seems my first New Years resolution will be the opposite of that which I intended ....
Yes, I did.
And no, it wasn't in the studio where I am actually very careful.
dumb dumb dumb me.
So it seems my first resolution is to slow down ,
For a few weeks any how. I can still pluck out (slowly for me as i am, or was, a pretty efficient typer), and answer my daily emails
from all of my wonderful creative people in all 4 workshop classrooms. (just please forgive the type o's ).
But the rest will have to hold for just a moment.
I am already plotting against myself however ,
and wondering what my right hand is capable of if I put some graphite, or a brush in it! It might be a cool exercise! Pounding metal out sounds painful right now however, as I am still nursing it quite a bit . I will get sick of this pretty quick I am thinking. :))
This one is a book mark doll I did for my Mother in Law in
The elephant was for Reagan , she named him "hugo".
I hope you have a wonderful New Years, and have a happy and
creative, inspiring , and blessed 2014.
Blessings to you,
