It is a little over 5 hours travel time and I don’t sit well in the car. I spent a whole day planning and packing what I could work on during the drive, knowing that I am much happier when my hands are busy.
In retail, I start thinking of Christmas and Holiday decorating well before I want to and probably much later than I should. This is especially true because everything that we highlight at the store, starting with our Holiday Open House, is hand made, one of a kind, straight from the STUDIO. So hold the date of November 5th – 8th and join us for this festive time. More details will follow later. I usually set aside the month of October to really go gung ho and tie myself to the STUDIO. So… this is the month of October. Can you believe it?
All that being said, I decided to do some fun little 3x4 pieces of artwork that will be embellishments for something else… Quick and easy to work on in the car (except that the tiny pieces then had big bags of scraps, beads and yarns to take with me just because I might need them.) These pieces have not yet told me what they want to embellish but they did turn out pretty.
O.K. Here is the fun part… I am attaching a sneak preview of two of the little pieces I made. Come in during the Open House and find out where these little things land, let me know where you find them and have your name entered for a $25.00 gift certificate to Making Ends Meet.
Have a great creative week!! Leslie
