I had a revelation today. What I make is actually considered decoupage. Sure I papier mache the sheets I cut from, but the definition of decoupage is "the creative art of assembling, pasting and varnishing paper cut outs". Voila! That's me! I'm not a fan of labels (I find them limiting) but it sure is nice to have a general answer when someone asks me what I do - I decoupage!!!
I've been tagged by the fabulous liSa neLson to list six things that make me happy:
3. my friends
4. other people's art
5. diet dr. pepper
6. playing with paper
and, for good measure
I've finished a few pieces - mostly halloween. I'm having a hard time waiting for sunday's shop update. I might have to at least post a few peek pics.
We were able to plant most of the garden yesterday. Just in time for a frost warning - yikes! At ten o'clock last night iSaAc was out covering my tomatoes - he's so great :) The squashes, cucumbers and melons will all go in today or tomorrow, or whenever I feel a bit better. Not feeling so hot, I'm hoping whatever it is decides to leave soon - I've got things to do - doesn't my body know this? Of course I realize that it's just its way of telling me to slow down.
Hope you are having a good start to your week!
