Time speeds up at this time of the year. Busy crafting week and at last finished my Chicago travel brief book and my chunky swap. Just finished working on the chunkys. The theme was postage art. My final was nothing like my original idea that was to do something with images of those fabulous saucy post cards of the 30s to 60s that were in every British seaside souvenir shop; the kind your mother had a fit at because you always made a bee line for them. Amazing now the originals are museum pieces. Donald Mcgill is no longer a dirty old man and now is recognized as an artist. wonderful!! the snob elite must be horrified. (somewhere read that the university of Kent payed for an exhibit of them).
well i changed my mind. the idea would not come together and to go digital when it appeared that the printer was about to run out of 4 cartridges pushed out that idea in favor of an idea to pay homage to a love letter written in Xmas 1917. That's a copy of it in the front right hand corner. the finished pages are over on the upper left. When the recipients receive them my thoughts are to right about the letter and the people involved whose lives and deaths really impacted my life.
next is is a project called give a hand to a friend. Will start tomorrow then take a break and ease off these swaps in favor of challenges as i really want to take the Mary Ann Moss that will come along later in the year.
the new dining table arrived and is now a resplendent addition to my kitchen/diner. The top is heavy red glass and it extends to seat 8. Don't you love those chairs. The black thing is a fan and the bowl was a present from Kay It has an interesting bottom it is angled so the bowl slopes.
well that's it for today pretty beat after a late night in San Antonio.
