Still working on mini albums. Have so many ideas running in my head of these little things to make. A Halloween one that resembles a trick-or-treat bag. Another made from teabag envelopes, love this itty-bitties. Still working on one with Starbuck's cup cozies, got a few kinks need to smooth out. Have one started using a mac-n-cheese box for the cover, going to be fun. And started a coin envelope one too. Too much fun creating little treasures.
Also started working on a WINTER themed mixed media piece. Had to go through a bunch of snow photos to get in the mood since it is 90+ degrees outside. I feel like I'm melting even in the air conditioning and I'm working on a winter theme. But I did come up with a poem which lead to an idea for the piece. I am doing this as part of the Cloth Paper Scissors 'winter holiday gift' art swap. I really wanted to play more with mixed media so I figured I could start with this. I think it will turn out well and I already have an idea for a bigger piece I'll start after this piece is done. If this one turns out well that is. I can see it in my head and I love it. The problem is making it look how it does in my mind. Just gotta keep trying.
Talk about problems and working on it ... the car situation is driving me CRAZY!! I so need my car fixed but we just don't have the money to get it done. Can't believe how expensive it is to get these contraptions fixed. If it was an older car DH could fix it himself but with all the computerized junk we have to take it into a mechanic. Still glad my brother is a great mechanic. As soon as I can save up the money to get it fixed he'll have it waiting for him at the shop. But for the moment DH and I are still sharing the car and dealing with the troubles it creates. Just need to remember that it is temporary and will get better shortly.
