Finally, A Milestone!
My forced hiatus from creating art is still ongoing,
but something positive has resulted:
I've taken the time to begin listing some of my
original art in my Etsy shop. Yay!
One of the sticking points keeping me from doing this was:
To open a new shop or add to my existing shop?
I could dither about that for a year, but finally decided ~
a few people already visit my shop...that's better than no people lol!
I hope to add much more, plus prints.
Prints are available now, I just don't have them listed.
I'd love to have all of you lovelies visit me there!
If you've noticed, like I have just noticed,
in the screen shot above ~ my last Google search was
"climbing hydrangea not blooming".
I await (not patiently) every summer for the hydrangea
to bloom. I have other hydrangeas that bloom profusely,
but this climbing one just climbs and climbs,
with nary a flower. I have read that it can be 7 years
or more before they grace us with a bloom.
We are quickly leaving 7 years behind,
so I think I've waited long enough!
Does anyone have a trick to make
a climbing hydrangea bloom?
I'd be so happy to hear of it!
The floors are all finished in the hallway and my art room,
but we cannot begin moving furniture in for another week.
This room, that is barely the size of some people's
walk-in closets, has 4 doors, 2 windows, and
a funky little L-shape at the entrance that is unusable.
But it's MY little space, and for that I'm grateful :)
Now that it has had its transformation, I am
hankering for a comfortable chair to add
to the chaos that is usually my creative space.
What better place to meditate on the subject of Inspiration?
(If I get this chair, I promise I will keep the space less chaotic :)
So, all I need is:
a) The chair.
b) A way to fit it into this tiny space.
I'll be happy to get back to entering the challenges at
Inspiration Avenue, when I can spread out with my
art supplies again. Right now I am restricted to pencils
and sketchbooks, with nowhere to make a mess with paint.
|I'd Rather be Reading (Poetry)
I thought to do a drawing of some kind for the challenge
this week, which is "Poetry". But I'm not liking this much.
I may turn it into a painting later, and maybe I will like it better.
Stop by Inspiration Avenue ~ there are some amazing
entries for the Poetry theme, brought to us by
Priti.Lisa! I love the artwork I've seen, as well as
the poetry that inspired them.
I hope you're having a lovely summer weekend!
