Well its now 2.20 am and for some very strange reason I'm at my pc doing the blog thing,go figure. Anyway I have quite productive despite not feeling to good,I am sad to say that once again boxes have managed to make and appearance in my creativity,I just cant resist them,I'm working on 10 at them moment,I don't know why I do it,I must have about a hundred or so scattered around my home and studios.
I have been journaling as usual and enjoying it muchly,also my large art works are now hanging in a new design gallery which is nice as it gives me more space in the bigger studio,so I can work big again,yipee!
I purchased a great glue gun today,it is big and works like a dream,also picked up some cool sculpting tools as well as some pretty nice paint brushes,I never do have enough,I use different ones for each medium so I need lots of brushes. I also restocked my paints,I needed more for the inside studio,I purchased large bunches of fabric flowers and pulled them apart to make some sparkly flowers for my dolls,also found some scrummy beads for my crafting and glass dangles,this has been a week of stocking up,working,creating,designing and learning,a good week really,if only I didn't have this pain to manage,well it wil lebb to a manageable degree soon,it always does.

Saying for the week is....In your heart keep one still quiet spot where dreams may go and be sheltered so they may thrive and grow. Louise Driscoll.
I am considering teaching a couple of times a week,probably teaching visual journaling or something like that,maybe doll making,we will see,I have quite a few people wanting me to teach them so it could be a big possibility.
I have been pretty active in the studio lately which is why I haven't blogged or done much on line,I haven't had time,also Ive been journaling a lot,prepping some journals for teaching,so I guess I made an unconscious choice already,mmmm that just tweaked.
Also I have been doing soldering,making boxes,dolls,illustrated one of a kind books and heaps more.
The painting in this entry is painted into one of my ideas journals,this will probably end up as a larger more detailed painting,this one was done using indian ink,dip pen,watercolors,rub ons and color pencils,
Best tools for the week.....ink pens and indian ink
