I am molting!
The truth is that I have fallen behind on most fronts. My journal/planner has been reduced to penciled scribbles, notes and overflowing piles of ephemera. Thank goodness these new phones keep records of texts for what happened and when. ;^) I do plan to catch up and pretty them up. Just not sure when.
It takes 3 hours total and we can expand any of the basic segments into THE project. We start with a timeline and add all kinds of interesting things to show where we came from, how parts of history influence art and where we are now. Heck, I'm learning lots as well.
Then a short reminder of basic elements and art principles. The nature journal is their homeschooling daily journal and we do show and tell and just review sketching or how to draw a bird info. Then, RECESS! The artist of the month follows. Did you know Dr. Seuss was an arttist? The Project depends on what we want to focus on for the day and which they can work on while I get some kind of literature reading in.
I have had good intentions but realize that sewing just isn't going to happen. Perhaps the hiatus was necessary as I am starting to really yearn for sewing time and even bought a piece of quilting fabric while I was away. This winter will likely see only hand sewing and I did get an online class for free form embroidery that intrigues me.
Part of the learning was my fashion mission. I kinda felt this was vain and frivolous but creativity expressed in clothing reveals to others who I really am. I've been delighted to see how art principles apply just as effectively in the fashion world and overlap in many areas.
And that brings me to goodbye. I have enjoyed my blog and chronicling my creative journey. I have grown and changed is more ways than even I realize. I am so looking forward to my Rooster's retirement and our new home, our new LIFE! I think this is a good place to end. I'm not sure that I want to nor even can leave blogland. But I won't be the country chick messing about with crafts under the bemused eyes of my farmer. We will be doing life differently but definitely creatively!
Thank you for reading and being a part of my story. Perhaps I'll see you in a book with a different title.
