I thought I would share with you a little glimpse into a sweet little space I called dibs on. It’s quite small, a little nook under the eaves of our small cottage. But it’s all mine! I’ve not had near the time to play here, at least not as much as my heart would have it. And if it weren’t for June being our busiest month in the way of birthday greetings needing to go out, I would be desperate to find any time at all. Times like these, I get all wonky. I need to be here, to make and do.
While in my little nook recently I was unexpectedly and oddly inspired by the mail. I noticed the colorful patterned insides of business envelopes I had gotten. The bills however did nothing for me! ;) and then I came up with this humdinger of an idea.
A little snip, flip and bit of red stitching up two sides and I had a handful of new pretty recycled envelopes. And a small quick creative boost for fortification during these busy days.
Summer is almost fully here. I’m sure many of you are pretty much full steam ahead with over-brimming schedules, summer plans, and with a creative tank near Empty.
From one friend to another, if this is your situation too, let me offer you a bit of refreshment to get you through.
- Kelly Rae Roberts. Kelly Rae’s collages are amazing. Try not to be captured by her long necked ladies looking inquisitively.
- Robin Luciano Beaty. Robin’s encaustic art has me smitten. I guess I love the added dynamic of using wax, heat gun, hammer, and a torch?, grrr…
- Dana Tanamachi. I have an infinite love for typography. Dana takes it back to black and white, and school all over with her phenomenal chalk board art.
