Maybe it was spending a week in a house with completely empty cabinets and closets but when I came home from vacation last weekend all I could see was clutter. Too many clothes, too much toys, cluttered closets and crowded drawers. So starting Monday I tore up both of the boy's bedrooms getting rid of old clothes and toys. No, the kids were not happy to give up any toys, even the ones they don't play with. So I did the sneaky mom thing and told them I was just putting them away for later when in reality I'm going donate them to charity as soon as they are away at school:) They will never be missed!
So I still haven't been able to have much time in the studio but hopefully that will change this week when the kids start school. We had a back to school camp out in our backyard Friday night as our last hurrah of the summer. As soon as the tent went up the neighborhood kids came out like ants to a picnic! We toasted marshmallows and read silly stories and danced to
They Might Be Giants tunes on the patio. It was a great time!
Here are my two September offerings for Glitter and Grunge. They will be available tomorrow so if you are interested in them you can contact me here.
And here are my two other works in progress...hopefully I will have them finished by the end of the week and I will put them in my Etsy shop.
This little house ornament is actually finished and is made from paper clay over cardboard with collaged vintage paper, acrylic paints and mica. It's 6 1/2" tall not counting the puff of smoke!It will be $18.00. I'm going to put it in my shop but if you can't wait, email me!
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Labor Day!!!
