Life may be getting back to normal after all the craziness of the past week or so. I even made it to the gym this afternoon. I also have been fulfilling some creative obligations... well, not obligations - that's such a negative word. I made my February ATCs last night and some Valentine cards today. I can't show you those because they haven't reached their recipients yet (I just mailed them today), but I can show you the January ATCs because they must have been received by now.
The theme for January was "You". We had to make cards that revealed something about ourselves. Tough decision to pick what I wanted people to know so I decided to not make a decision and went random. You'll see what I mean...
The outside of each card is like a little house, the bricks all made from words cut out of the newspaper. Each word is something that either describes me or appealed to me in some way.
Then the red door is opened to reveal Me!
They were fun to make - a bit fiddly and messy, but I enjoyed the process and it made me think about how other people would view me. Would their perceptions of me match the words I chose?
Sorry about the fuzzy pictures. My camera does not take good close-ups (but it was no use asking the OnlyChild to take the photos for me; I'd still be waiting for them).
February's theme is "Vintage Valentine" and was fun to make. I went with something a little simpler this time around. I hope my little ATC group likes them!
No progress on the quilt this week. I'm hoping to spend many hours on it this weekend... provided I have no marking to do. Tomorrow is the beginning of the second semester at school. New classes, new students. New marking.
Until next time...
