My cousin and her husband gave me some vases from their wedding reception. Their wedding and the whole week leading up to it was filled with awesome time with family and memories I will cherish forever. That sounds wicked cheesy but I mean it, I had such a blast with both our and the grooms family.

My creative space looks like an earthquake happened. I cannot find anything and there is no space left on my desk. Today I will be working on that by finishing a few little projects that I started and put aside. Then I can sink my teeth into some deep organizing.
I am putting work on my collection on hold. My priorities have shifted and right now I just need to play when I am in the studio space. I want to explore the freedom I have now for the first time as an adult. I have a dedicated art space and open possibilities, and I have little reason to rush into making my time there feel like work. I have been introduced to so many new mediums recently. I finally have time to experiment with them and revisit ones that I have not used in a long time. My new creative goals are to play often in my studio space and try to fan my creative spark until it blazes, then I can pick direction.
I really like the way it turned out. More importantly my cousin (the bride) liked it. see the before picture here.
This is the bread sent to me from the Paisley Lizard to be used in my design. The superstition blog hop is November 13th, I am looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
I’m in a wedding in less than a week. I am not yet finished with my bridesmaid dress (yikes!) but I am not worried. I will finish that tonight, or something like that. I also have a few paintings to finish that may or may not be wedding presents. I will be back from family shenanigans next week at some point, maybe I will post while I am away but I make no promises. I hope you all have a wonderful week and weekend.
