The Eleven Eleven show was lots of fun. It had great holiday spirit, was beautifully curated and the cherry on top was that I sold two pieces. I thought it would get me seriously motivated and back in the studio again....but, um, that hasn't yet happened. During the week, I'm too busy or too tired to get down there. And then, the weekend comes and all I can think about is ideal saturday (this past weekend was a record breaking ideal saturday) and I never make it down there. I know my studio mate is living it up and getting creative and productive monday through friday...still, I guess I'll get there when I get there. I do need to start creating a new series for the cards. I had started again in the fall...and...well, i just need to pick it up again. The stationary show will be here before I know it.

No more resting on laurels!
These last two pieces I never actually completed as such. They were sort of work studies for the two above pieces. I tend to do that. Put together something, move it around, it's something else now, but ends up completely different from my first idea. But, I've grown to like them in their photographic form, so I might just have another go at these.

I tell myself, Get out there and make! make! create!
