I finished reading a lot of posts from the Mondo Beyondo class last night and tonight so I'm feeling thoughtful...and wanting to dive into really big things...but it's bedtime so I settled for a bit of crafting and posting a blog post.
I'm pondering a project. I've got so many of them at the moment. But this one feels right. It feels like what I'm supposed to do. It feels like home. Tonight is only a test of what it might be. We'll have to see if it becomes that...or something else entirely...or remains nothing more than a quick late evening experiment.
You can see in the photo a few of the letter stamps I made in Julie Balzer's Stamp Carving 101 class. It is still a toss up for me as to whether I like her classes or Alisa Burke's classes the best, but this was a truly awesome class and SO worth the cost. You can also see off to the side my two Keep Calm stamps. There are really stamps all over my studio now...I'm a bit of a stamp carving lunatic (in only good ways, I promise).
My friend G got some bad news today...a worst case scenario...but she's prepared and she can handle it...and she has plenty of help (Riley and Kealy were helping themselves and her to a nap last weekend while she recovered from what I think we're going to start calling round 1). I do have to say that any night the two of us are talking on the phone and we "jinx" a Harry Potter reference can't be all bad.
Other stuff is happening. I sent something out of my hands and into the hands of others. I can't do anything else with it at the moment. It will be what it will be.
There are stories in my heart and in my head I want to tell, but I'm finding it hard to rearrange all of my commitments to focus on the blog...and my camera...which I'm not getting along with well at the moment. We need to spend time together ... but that takes time away from all those other more fun and more creative projects I want to do. In the end, the camera needs to win out...as it leads to so much more long term happiness down the line once I get back to my comfort level with it that I had with my D80. Letting go of what was is often the hardest part.
I'm tired, so I'm rambling...off to bed for me. How are you my friends?
