CED Day 5--Much Better!






...Some recent painted canvas pieces. I'll use these for book covers, bookmarks, jewelry, and maybe even a purse.

Oh, what a difference a day makes! My son was sick last night, but today--all better! I don't think it was a full stomach flu, just some little bug. So, thankfully, we are all currently healthy in this house.

Plus, I had a more creative day today. The two boys ( age 4 and 6 months) and I "played" outside this afternoon. It was a beautiful day, about 68 degrees, just perfect weather! I got out some dyed scarves that needed a little something more, and was able to stamp metallic copper leaves on about 7 of them. My 4 year old played in the mud, made mud pies for me, and instructed me in playing a Goblin Trick or Treat game, which I could do while I was painting! I hung up the scarves to dry on our awning, so that the baby could watch them float in the breeze. My scarves do have a few little mud splatters on them, when my son got a little to enthusiastic with the mud, but I think they will wash out, if not, I'll keep them for myself!

And, I will catch up a little here, posting some projects that I've been working on this past month.


Fabric Earrings for the "My Favorite Things" swap on Adornmentz.


Dangles that I made for a swap on Art Charms--I used polymer clay beads that I have made.

So glad you got to create! I know when my kids were small having time to make art each day was like therapy!

Love your canvases. I can certainly see them as book covers or even a purse or tote bag.

Elisabeth - love all of your goodies - those canvasses are gorgeous...and hey, what's a little mud between friends? (a good excuse to treat yourself to some of your own artwork, that's what it is!) xoxo, c
