Too Many Projects!
How did this Happen!?
21 Art Cards (3.5 x 2.5 inches)
2 Postcard sized Art Pieces
6 Mini paintings for a Children's Book
A Family Calendar through Heritage Makers by the end of the WEEK!? (gather photos, birthdays, anniversaries, & more to put on it)
A house in a deplorable messy state
1 dog (that keeps getting into the garbage)
... I'm going to lose my mind!
And now, I find myself on ebay looking for cute, girly skull fabrics because I've gotten it in my head that a particular little girl who I hardly know absolutely NEEDS a pink and black, skull-themed, flag bunting for her room that I was recently hired to paint a mural for. So, if I can get the fabric squares (they look almost perfect, so impressed that I found something so close to the mural design!) I just bid on at a really cheap price, I will be trying to sew that up in the next few months. I wish I had more money so that my "poverty" would stop getting in the way of my "generosity".
Which reminds me, I have these squares I sewed together months ago that I still need to turn into a quilt one of these days!! Anyway, I'm feeling a little CRAZY... and am really getting behind on my scrapbooking which is making me nervous!! ESPECIALLY because I just know Alysha will be on the move in the next few months and then I will be spending the majority of my days following her around making sure she doesn't eat Jayden's toys - since I can't seem to train that boy to pick up after himself.
But, I think I have an idea for my scrapbooking. I'm going to stick the photos (as I take and develope them) in the page protectors with the paper (if I have any picked out for those photos) and any journaling type info jotted down on a piece of paper in order in the scrapbook... that way, if I do get really behind, I won't be completely lost as to what was going on in the photos when I do come back to scrapbooking.
Oh, I need to go to the store to buy some picture frames for some art pieces that I finally got some custom mats for. Now, if only I can sell them for at least $60 each. Am just hoping Gallery IS has their Miniature Art Christmas sale again this year... Erika, you reading this?
So glad they liked the mural I did for that girl's room, btw! YAY! My first time painting on a WALL and it was fun! I love taking artistic challenges because it is so rewarding when I accomplish new things. They actually liked the mural so much that they are having me do a mural for their other daughter's room! She wants ponies and unicorns... yay, that'll be fun! If anyone else in the area is wanting mural work done; hit me up! I could DEFINITELY use the income.
