confessions [of an artist] part 10.

 Well friends, it's that wild and wonderful time of year again.
Or, to belt it out in song: "It's the most wonderful craftiest time of the yearrrrrr"!
Time to get my craft on.

 The sewing machine is whirring.
The glue gun is burning.
The jewellery pliers are pinching.
The power-drill is spinning.
 (And I still have all my fingers!)
The paintbrush is dancing.
The scissors are cutting.
And the stamps are stomping.

Christmas craft shows are worth being well stocked for.

Now to figure out how to create a few more hours in the day!

Confession: I love and loathe it really.
Creating is my narcotic.
So is productivity.
Pounding out a pile of unique treasures is really exhilarating.
But, finding that balance with home-making and art-making is sometimes exhausting.

Needless to say, it's still a wonderful time of year and I'm super eager to share with you all the new goodies hatching out of this nest in the coming weeks!
P.S. The sane voice in my brain (usually my husband's...) says that I should probably quit blogging during this phase... but who are we kidding, we all know the other voices in my head just won't shut up. blog.blog.blog.

P.P.S ~ For all you local yokels... save your Christmas cash for some handmade craftiness coming at you live Dec. 8 & 9th... more details to follow!

Creatively, crazily, yours!
Mel ;o)
