This last week was full of sick coughies and homeschool planning. (Our day starts tomorrow and I think we're ready for the structure.) So art time has been severely limited but I did manage to eek out an art journal page. It's for this week's Creative Therapy challenge. I hope you're playing along on the challenges. Each week has a fabulous prize of artsy supplies. You don't want to miss out on those, and a chance to do a little Creative Therapy art. Let me know if you do a piece for a week so I can come see!
Here's mine. The theme is 'What do you collect or hoard?'
I think there is no question what I collect. Ask any of my art friends and they’ll tell you immediately. ‘Kris has way too much ribbon, lace and fiber.’ Now personally, I don’t think its too much but they should know. 1 1/2 thirty-five gallon trash bags full of ribbon & lace. Yeah. It had taken over so much space I quit trying to organize it and just shoved in it the bags. Whenever I wanted to use some, I pulled rolls & handfuls out until I found what I needed. When organizing my studio a couple months ago, I decided to host a Ribbon Bee. I invited all my friends over for food, fun and work. We wrapped, taped, & pinned over 850+ types of ribbons, laces, fibers and embroidery floss. I’m eternally grateful to my friends for getting me out of the ‘bag’. It took us several get-togethers to finish it all. Yes, I tend to hoard my ribbon & vintage laces. And yes, I can’t resist buying more. It’s a sickness I tell you. But I’d rather be sick, than ribbonless.
