I’ve finally managed a collage for Artsymama’s Everyday Notions challenge #2 Sharing & Emptiness. I chose to work on emptiness, in the form of clearing off my project to do list! I seem to have many intentions and not enough time. I’m sure you all can relate! I cleared some time, here and there, and concentrated on getting projects completed. I made my list and stuck it in my art journal. As I made my way down the list, I added scraps from my projects to the collage and happily crossed the items off the list. Then when I was finished with it all, I decided it would be nice to have a visual as to what I had created for each project. So, I took pictures of everything and then printed them and added them to the collage. I’m really not happy with the way the collage turned out, however, I am ecstatic with the process and the goal being met!
Thought maybe you would like to see the projects as well as the collage, so here’s the pictures. Although, I was so thorough on the baby gift that it is all wrapped and ready to ship! So all you see is the package, but I really did sew a hooded towel and finger tip towel bib, I promise!
I’ve been working on this project for months now! I had this old coffee table on my porch, previously our livingroom table, then in the basement, finally the porch. It was oak, then painted brown, then I decided to paint it white and decoupage the top with wrapping paper. I then decided I needed matching chairs, it took me awhile but I finally found them at a garage sale for $1 each! Painted them white and then finally this weekend, decoupaged them! And appliled an outdoor sealer!

We were out mowing the lawn last night and I thought, WOW it looks good. It’s been a few years since we’ve had a nice lawn. We’ve been in a drought for so long but this year we are getting rain! My flowers are just so pretty! I can’t decide to cut or leave them! Anyway, I took a few pictures this morning to share…
I finally got some more customizing done on my blog! I made this big banner and added a blogroll. Not much else to report today, that’s kept me busy the past few days.
