Beware of UFO's, PIGS and WIP's

That is UnFinished Objects, Projects In Grocery Sacks and Works In Process.  I have declared open war on them!  So, to help me be accountable &; stay on track, I'm posting a picture of just a few of them.
These are all beading, some will not be finished, but incorporated into other things.  Some are just samples from teaching a stitch.  But others are just abandonded projects & will be finished.  Feel free to check up on me!

On that track I finished up two recently begun projects: A big white felted purse and a big blue one (it's my favorite)

Art Inspiration - two weeks' worth!

Here's a couple of inspiration cards.  I haven't drawn any for a while.  But, I have been busy!  The advice to step away is intended to get us to look at things from a new perspective.  Back up a few steps to see the whole picture, squint your eyes to see colors and shapes instead of details.

The brain drain emphasizes that our art comes from within ourselves.  it does not spring from out paint brush, needle and thread or clay - but it comes from within our minds.  So clearing our minds from "clutter' helps us create - our art to come alive.
