I have had very fierce cravings these days. No, not for bizarre meals or even shiny jewelry, but to make art. Loads and loads of it. Do you think it's possible that the dead creativity moods I had during my early pregnancy has finally taken a reverse? I just have these ideas swirling in my head all day, and there seems to be a huge magnet that keeps pulling me towards my drawing table. Now I can sit there doodling, drawing, painting, with the baby kicking and nudging nonstop inside my tummy. Even the cramps seem more bearable, or at least I've found a way to try and ignore them. :)
Here is the last project I did, while trying new things into my usual work by putting a good use to a lot of craft materials that's been sitting away collecting dust. You see, I get all excited sometimes when I go to craft stores and almost never strong enough to escape the craft demon that lures you in to buy stuff... which all usually stay unused inside a box under the table. :)
And this is the star of the project. Meet the girl in blue with her sleeping fox friend. I painted her on a thick recycled paper board and added glossy varnish just to keep her safe from nasty grubby hands. I then made two adjacent little holes on the top corners, and worked a satin ribbon into them, tying a double knot on each end. Of course, you can be more creative and use other things like lace or beaded strings.
Quite a change, isn't she? Well, to be honest I was happy with the end result... she really cheered me up for the day. So I'm naming her "Gwyneth", which by the the way means "happiness", and she's now available in The Wish Forest, in case you'd like to give her a little visit.
Now, I wonder where this new mood is taking me next... :))
