Art Finds Friday kind of sleepy and not quite organized enough

You know I just didn't get around to posting my regular Art Finds Friday post today. I do my posts the night in advance and last night I was just plain tired. I did the dishes after dinner and went to bed leaving the kids to put themselves to bed. Mark and I watched an episode of 'Band of Brothers' and went to sleep. I slept for 12 hours (minus night nursings, say about 3)!!! 

I did do some art yesterday - carved a stamp from a photo of a flower, collaged it with photo of Grandpa Kelly and my mother as a little girl. I am working on something else today. And everyday. I get down about not creating anything really new, but I remind myself 'it is better to do something artful than nothing at all'. I cling to that. It lifts me above the gravity pull of negativity and tiredness.
Oh and I did find out that I am going to be part of Jenny Doh's CRESCENDOh Design Team in 2011. Yeah! More projects to work on. I am so excited to be joining the team, and what a great team Jenny has assembled so far. I will let you know when I am added to the list.

Have a lovely, productive artful weekend.


  1. just wanted to say that i love you friend! and i'll be praying for you. that is exciting news about being on jenny doh's team. she's very inspiring!

    also, didn't know if you knew or not, but i have been posting regularly on my photoblog for a while now, and i've been doing some experimenting to make up for the lack in my camera. i'd love to have your input when you have time. :-)

    oh and the stamp you carved is gorgeous!


  2. Big Congratulations on your news. What a wonderful opportunity!

    I am very very attracted to this piece. The flower is gorgeous!

    And I do know very well about those all night nursing sessions. Ahh, we will look back on these days and smile!

  3. My little girl and I were still doing the night nursings not too long ago.... so I understand the tiredness. I didn't mind it too much, and in fact I really enjoyed nursing in general, but months and months of interrupted sleep gets to you. Hang in there. (^_^)

    I love the flower stamp, by the way.

  4. oh, I forgot to tell you how much I am loving these circles, and crescent, cut outs you have been using.

  5. Your flower stamp is gorgeous. Sorry you are so tired. Congratulations on being a part of the Crescendoh Design Team. Can't wait to find out more.

  6. Congratulations, Enjoy!!!

    PS- hope you are able to find some time to refresh over the Christmas break
