Wanna make some happy mail with me this fall? Then stay tuned. A fun Swap Event is being planed in this moment, and you probably are gonna wanna join in. Or at least that’s my guess.
It’s almost time to join the DIY Postcard Swap that I host here twice every year – but not just yet. I’m scheming and planning still, making some new graphics and hoping it will be the best swap so far! I will be sending out your invitation to join in autumn’s Best and most Awesomest handmade postcard swap very soon! Those on my newsletter will be the first to know, so Sign Up Now if you haven’t already.
But today I had to take a break from computer work, to do something rather different…
I love art journaling, mail art and collage, but did you know I also do embroidery? I love hand stitching. So on my work break today, I finally did finish three of my embroideries! I had to do it today because tomorrow it’s time to hang them for the upcoming exhibition! I mean, OMG, why did I wait until the last minute to finish the embroideries?
I like to decide the night before Thanksgiving that I’m gonna do it, and I’ll see what riff raff is around. Then I get that last-minute surge of energy. But if I had two weeks to plan, sometimes I wish I wasn’t doing it. But very seldom does that happen.
Well, that’s how I roll too. Procrastination and Plus, the most boring part of any art creating is the framing, right? It’s so tedious and boring to me, but a must if you want it to look professional. And when it’s done, it can totally transform a piece of cloth with stitches to a piece of textile art that is worthy of a white wall at an exhibition hall. :-)
Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.
