* Happy Father's Day ...

Hope all of you who are celebrating have a wonderful day.  Enjoy.

It was cleaning day today ... especially in the studio where a thick layer of cement dust lay over absolutely everything.  I must say, I don't know what I would do without Marta!  Especially now with the arthritis acting up.  She even wiped down the walls, while I sat and tried to 'de dust' all the little stuff.  It is sooo much better, and there are no longer footprints on the floor when you walk (a good sign, I believe!).

It was mid afternoon before I settled to do anything creative.  Nothing came easy today, and I wandered from one thing to another, trying to find 'the zone'.  Nothing really peaked my interest, however, I did leave a couple of things completed on the table.

Experimenting with small organic looking note cards made from hand made paper.  I think I might like it better if the string was plain.

A post card.  I'm beginning to really have fun making these.

More journal pages.  Experimenting to see if I can write with white gel pen on these dark surfaces.

After this set, I only have a couple more sets to go before my thirty two page journal is ready to use.  Have to think about how I want to bind it.

Thank you all so much for dropping by.  Thank you for your interest in what I have to say and what I am creating.  You are all AMAZING!  Thank you for all the loveliness you leave as comments with your words and your thoughts.  It truly lifts me up, and makes this space somewhere I love to come to share my creativity and a little part of myself.  

Only FOUR more posts to GIVEAWAY DAY!  Come one, come all, join in the celebration of my 500th post. Gather yourselves and be witness.  Believe me, it's some sort of miracle ... he he.
