Oh my! Almost a month has passed...

I know I said that I was going to get my act together and post more often but I obviously have really not kept up with that goal. I have good reasons (like you care) like a self-imposed computer deprivation as part of my going through the exercises in the Artist's Way book, my work on my kitchen wall (finally painted and wallpaper and looking GORGEOUS, I might add), and my creative craziness of the past week to get ready for the big CyberCrafting Weekend at and the upcoming release of the May kit.

Here is a sneak peek of one of my challenges for the CyberCraft Weekend. It is a needle-felted background with beading. For the beaded mermaid, I didn't have directions, only a picture of one that had been made. That was my first attempt at recreating a beaded piece that was that detailed.

Since some of my creative time was also spent working on my kitchen, I have to also share a picture of the wall that had been "in progress" for about five years. And yes, I am embarrassed about it (even though my mother wouldn't think so). Eeek! I thought I had a picture but I don't so I'll have to share that later.

The other thing that I am very excited about is that tomorrow I can go put the glaze on two pottery pieces I made during an Open Studio that my local Artist's Way group had on the 15th of April. I made a small bowl on the wheel and a small mask that will probably find its way into an assemblage piece at some point.

Well, that is all for now. I need to go finish a couple of beeswax pieces for And the boys will be home from school any minute.
