I actually have something to post about but don't seem to have the time, work is crazy busy (ha typed it before I realized what I'd said). Thanks to lots of coaching from Girlville I'm trying out painting. I have no artistic talent but thought what the heck how hard can it be, well I found out it's a lot harder than it looks. I had decided I would try something abstract thinking it would be easy to just throw some colors on the canvas and you have art. Apparently my personality is not abstract because it was way to hard, I think because I was trying to "stay in the lines" and you can't do that with abstract. So the first canvas ended up in the garbage. I went back to the store for another canvas and decided to try stenciling, they really didn't have what I thought I wanted but I got them anyway - beachy stuff which would go great in my room. After painting the canvas and stenciling it I was again disappointed. I kept this one but am too embarrassed to show it to all my crafty, talented friends. Girlville gave me some great advice on making my on patterns. I've got to make another trip to Michael's for more canvas and try to get better ideas on what I really want. I do like the painting part of it I just need to use my imagination more and ideas are welcome.
