Beads, Index Cards and Good Intentions

Well, I think I can surmise that summer is not a good time for blogging in my life.  All my intentions were to keep posting in June, July and August.  As a matter of fact I made a commitment to post weekly right after the new year and was doing well keeping that up….until the sun came out!

Three of my grandchildren from out-of-town arrived in mid-June and my attention turned elsewhere.  I even tried to enlist them in doing ICAD’s with me (yes, I stopped at 27/61) but pretty soon other activities took over.  I’m big at living in the moment so it’s all good, I have no regrets, my only problem being how do I re-motivate myself?

Since the kids have left I’ve not touched an index card (ICAD) but I did exercise my creative muscles a little with these projects–leather wrapped bracelets!  Thanks to a group of friends open to learning something new and one generous friend willing to share her expertise we began creating these:008

What fun this has been and I’m now amassing a good collection of beads and leather to continue.  Meanwhile I’m eying those index cards again and feeling the itch to do a little creating every day!


About artsynaturenut

I'm a creative warrior constantly fighting my battle with my muse against that nasty critic. I love to paint and do mixed media work either on the canvas or with art journals. I'll dabble in just about everything--bookmaking, photography, writing, etc. and get excited about combining them. Hence the mixed media!
