Creative Every Day:
I don't think I've taken time to say that I joined a group about being creative every day. It is for this year and started by the wonderful Leah who has done art everyday month (November). This is for the entire year. I know that there is rarely a day that goes by in which I am not creative, in one way or another, but this will be more about trying to document that more regularly. I realize that it is nearly the end of the month and I have not been documenting my art BUT I have been working slowly, diligently, at cleaning in the basement and particularly trying to organize my art supplies and room. As I've said before - it's about slow as molasses. But I think it will feel about as sweet as molasses too once I ever get it finished.
Here are a number of the boxes I've been decorating in the process of trying to organize all my stamps. I always had to dig through layers of stamps in just a couple of boxes to find the ones I wanted. With this collection of unusual boxes I will be able to, hopefully, have just one layer of stamps in each box. We'll see how it goes. I will be decorating a couple more boxes for yarn and fibres. I've got some of those already in purchased boxes but ran out. Good thing I found some more shoe boxes to empty. Now I can have the fun of decorating them.

And here are some stamps I've been making - fun foam pieces and carved from rubber. I have plans especially for fabric:

fun with foam


I've also been doing a couple of videos in the past weeks for creating. I'll be sharing another one about the farm tomorrow.

angels be with you,

Your boxes are beautiful! So romantic and feminine and nostalgic. And your stamps are great!! I keep thinking I'll carve some stamps but never get around to doing it.

Blessings to each of you. I am in the dastardly process of still trying to clean my basement, art space. Later last week I grew tired and had additional challenges.
Then I made some art. Ahhh. I am in the process of trying to gain permission to use music on a video I made surrounding the art. Hopefully it won't take forever. I will be heartbroken if I cannot have the permission. Copyright laws can be very strict.

Hello dear,

I love the look of those boxes. What a great idea using the foam to create images, I didn't know you could do it that way. I feel like decorating everything at sight.

Wendy - I love these pieces! The blue is just beautiful, reminds me of an old quilt I have. By the way thank you for your wonderful comments on my cone. :) Marva
