Or is it SWAHM?(stay-work from home mom). I don't think there is much 'staying at home' involved tho'.
I often feel like my days are chopped into 'little portions of time'.
After running a few errands this morning I didn't think I would have time to start up a project, finish, and put it away. So here I am, blogging instead.
We're hoping to move this summer into a home where we'll have a 'real studio', a room dedicated to arts and crafts- we can leave things out between each portion. I think that will be a true luxury!
While blogging I sometimes eat lunch. Multi-tasking at it's finest. My husbands' 'salade de riz', or rice salad, you see above is on the menu. In other words -last nights leftovers. I don't really like to cook unless sugar is involved. Salade de riz reminds me of France, we often got it in school there... (where school cafeteria food is a 4 course event)!
I love the chipped bowl it's in and thought it would make a neat picture. I'm trying to take more pictures and practice practice practice.
I also bought some papers, ribbons and other art supplies this morning. And this book:
It's by Kelly Rae Roberts. I've seen it for awhile now and decided to get it today.
I thought it would be a fun read as I've been wanting to paint again lately. Later on I'll make a nice cup of tea and enjoy it. Can't wait.
The backdrop in today's pictures is our kitchen table, paint splatters and all(!),it's usually covered with a table cloth. It looks like a collage project in the makings :)
And lastly, I meant to show this for my Valentine's Day post. It's a coin purse with red and pink vintage buttons I made last year.
I had planned to make a bunch of them, but never got around to it. One day.When I have a big enough portion of time.
Have a happy creative day!
Note to self: must change banner for March !!
