finding the time

so here i am wondering where the time goes in my day? every morning i wake up feeling like today is going to be a productive art day and then in a blink of an eye, night falls, and i realize i've had little time in the art room. i'm beginning to wonder if i'm related to austin powers and having a serious loss of art mojo. more than likely it's just a cycle of creativity that has an ebb and flo as i do remember not so long ago it was nothing for me to work 6 hours in my art room a day and sometimes i'd stay up til 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning trying to finish projects. now it seems i can barely muster an hour of art time and some days i find myself being totally absent from the art room. one thing i can say is that i am hearing something similar from quite a few of my close art buddies so i am hopeful it is nothing more than the winter doldrums. i feel guilty when i don't create because i am so passionate about art and i love the feeling of joy and peace when i am creating. while i profess i don't understand the art flow i am in quite now, i do respect it, so rather than worry over why i'm not sitting at my desk i did make time for an art run to michaels. i still had some birthday money and figured some new art supplies might inject a little nudge in the right direction, after all, the last time i went to michaels i made a few things with those bird rub ons i purchased there. it seems that the michaels run did help me to do some art work when i got home. i created another spinner card. the image is a rubber stamp from alpha stamps. the little girl is stamped and then colored in with markers and gel pens.

  1. fab card, as always! the image/stamp is a tracy roos design. what size are the spinner cards? i've always had trouble fitting that image onto an atc....
