The summer schedule is all about a more relaxed style of living. The schedule always seems to have lots of things to do but there should be opportunities to sit and visit..
I did finish up the frame collage for the Altered Book class I am taking. This is one of three pages on the winter season. The other pages can be seen here. Leaves are gone but the evergreens do what they can to add joy to the season.
Creativity 101 continues. Jenn wants to make a scrapbook and we have been adding some pages to her book. This will be her title page. Hearts are a favourite motif and we deliberately added one to her shirt.
I have been studying up on products that are useful for backgrounds. We did practice making a few and I'm using tags with gesso on one side and just the manila surface on the other for references as I tend to like using gesso and I have lots of manila files to upcycle. We hope to make a field trip to a scrapbooking store next week. It will be in my DD's little city so this is kinda contingent on the baby's arrival. :^)
I am awaiting mail as I have a book, some screens and some hard to get supplies on order.
I've been trying to shake this awful summer cold, as well as keep up with all the various doctor appointments for family as I am either driver or babysitter. The weather seems to have settled into hot and dry so we are making progress on the weeding.
I am thinking it is time to regroup a bit as I have a great tendency to follow one tangent after another until I am a far ways from where I should be. lol I need to get my focus back and do the next thing first. This is a profound statement I came across in an old children's book and always makes me ponder things and want to do better.
Now to get summering on!
