It's time for WOYWW again. First I'd like to say thanks for all your lovely comments, I didn't get round to visiting too many of you last week as I was in the middle of tiling my kitchen and had my light switches and plug sockets hanging off the walls and it was my priority to get them back before I managed to electrocute myself - hopefully this week I shall be able to visit more of you.
I have a theory, we all have right brain and left brain, we use both but tend to be more predominantly one or the other.
Left brain is the logical, organized side
Right brain is the imaginative, creative side.
We can't work with both at the same time, thus when we are creating we can't be logical and organized which is why most of us have such a mess going for us.
I'm not too bad this week,
I'm reasonable organised when I start, image there, papers there, then we start to get onto putting it all together which is when chaos starts.
When I get to the embellishing part - total,
dis-organised chaos takes over.
I'm aiming for organised creative chaos, not dis-organised.
Well - we'll see!!!!! The card in the middle is ready for embellishing which I hope to finish and post shortly. The Bird Book ? - I was watching some hawk type of birds flying around over the field the farmer is mowing and trying to identify them - as they had forked tails I came to the conclusion they are Kites. No cat again this week - he's out on the balcony, sunning himself.
The tubs are pearls, pear brads and various embellishments. The inevitable coffee cup is there, dangerous really I have been known to knock it over on a finished card - eeeeeeeeek!!!
There's a dragonfly, bottom left, that appeared out of nowhere and I just don't have a home for him, the Tim Holtz distressing tool and some braid left from the card. I did promise a tutorial on braiding, I'd nearly finished it when my computer had hiccups and lost it. I have every intention of finishing it this week. You might also spot a rather large packet of crisps at the top right - my downfall.
My stash cupboards are fairly well organised - a bit untidy but could be worse.
Here is the farmer mowing his grass - not a pretty sight for a hay-fever sufferer, windows will all be closed today, hopefully he'll get his other machine out (haven't a clue what they're called) and hoover up all that grass. I think he stores it as winter fodder for his cows and this why the Kites were flying about, hoping to spot little mice and voles etc running for cover.
Now I shall go and finish that card and try very hard not to create too much mess - if I didn't make so much mess I'd have more time to visit you all wouldn't I?
