Day 7 - Being Creative

Wednesdays are usually difficult for me and creating because it's the day HB and I buy groceries and run errands. Plus by the time we're finished I'm ready for a nap!

So I don't have much to show you for yesterday. I managed to make a template of a bird...

 I just used a piece of cardboard from a frozen meal

and then cut it out of some scrapbooking papers. 
I want to embellish it quite a bit more 
but I ran out of steam last night!

I also cut up those political postcards...
and managed to get quite a lot from them:
11 regular sized postcards
5 over-sized postcards (I didn't cut them)
7 bookmarks of various sizes
and 3 5 x 7 journal cards.

Not much in the way of creativity but I think today will be better. I already have some things going on and hope to have something to share tomorrow. Oh, and I baked a sweet potato pie for our "yummy" last night...that counts, doesn't it!


  1. Janet, even if YOU don't feel like beeing at the top of creating I'm so glad to see all the different things you have going. I really like your bird, it can be used for so many things. Ever considered using the same creation every day in a week? That can be lots of fun, and give some amazing results. Anyway, have fun creating!

  2. Of course it all counts. I like the bird, I am sure you will do fun stuff with it.


  3. mmm I am liking the sound of that sweet potato pie! yum!

    some days are like that - just preapring the ground work for some serious art later! good work Janet!

  4. Hello Janet,

    I came by your blog by way of another blog and was reading some of your post. I can totally relate to not getting things done. Sometimes I have so much floating around in my head I just can seem to pin just one thing down or get any of it down. I became a follower so that I can pop in often..

  5. I love stopping by now and then to see what you're up too. I have three projects going now and I'm anxious to finish them so I can move to something else. You're art is so inspiring for me. In a few weeks I will be opening agaller booth in our loval antique mall. I've never done this before but I feel it will give me a "purpose" to do what I love to do. I though my blog would jhelp with that but now I just have to take time to learn how to be a "blogger" ( does it ever end?) Anywoo, have a great day and know that what you do is such a blessing to those who drop in from time to time. Thanks

  6. Glad to see you're on a roll again! Cute template!

    Hugs Giggles
