Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is many circles of love: A story ...Image by controltheweb via Flickr

The turkey's in the oven, the macaroni and cheese is made, the stuffing is waiting in the fridge, the sweet potatoe casserole has the marshmallows waiting to toast and of course one disaster has already been made today (the turkey was bad - smelling to high heaven and had to go back to the store and get another one at seven this morning!!) All this and it's only 9am this morning! I'm almost jealous of people that eat at normal times like 6pm but my family insists on eating at 12:30. We've been doing it that way since I was a kid in Mississippi...years (too many to count) ago.

To all of you, a Happy matter when you celebrate. Enjoy your family and friends! If you plan to take advantage of the Black Friday deals...have fun! Me..I'll be working and trying to get some rest this weekend. I've got a lot of painting to do to catch up for the blah mood I've been in lately.

Don't forget to stop by my website for some great deals on art. I'm trying to mark down everything to clean off the shelves forfresh new product. I have an ad coming out in the January Somerset Studio and I'd like to stock the shelves with new artwork. Take advantage of the sale prices now for the holidays.

New Shadow Boxes

I finished the first of two shadow boxes that I've been working on. Vintage sewing machine drawers and lots of found items are used in these little shadow boxes. I'll be adding these to my website when the second one is completed.
I'm slowly working my way out of my creative funk. Changed my "tune" so to speak and painted some really funky boxes yesterday...can't wait to post them! Trying to get started on some Christmas presents....
Be good to yourself.

No thoughts, none....

My mind is completely void of creativity....I feel like I am in a vortex of blah! I joined Mystele's Gut Art class to jump start my creative juices...I haven't gotten past the first 5 videos.

I decided to do something different in my studio so I started some vintage sewing machine drawer shadow boxes. I almost finished one, started another...there they sit on my messy art table.

I have some projects I want to start for the girls for Christmas. Maybe if I get in my studio and do a really good cleaning I'll get a little bit motivated.

Do you ever feel this way? Like someone sucked all the creative thoughts out of your head? I know that work is getting in the way of my art and I don't like it! What do you do to get you art Mojo back? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas.

Be good to yourself,
