Why do I feel like I'm living in a Dicken's novel? Best of times - worst of times. The political atrocities and environmental decay have me heart sick but I'm doing my best to focus on what I can control in my own space. I read that if you express you can't feel stress. It's not true, but it has helped divert my attention.
My creative energy has been electric recently and I find myself bouncing from project to project.The entire house is set up with possibilities! I'm designing, crocheting and knitting in the sewing room, doing research, reading and working on the computer in my office, journaling and illustrated journaling on the porch or in the living room, painting and book making in my dining room, and cooking, baking, aging journal pages and playing with eco printing on fabrics and papers in my kitchen.
This is an attempt to catch up a bit! My illustrated journal pages form the basis for the projects I'm creating.
