My first atc is on the way!

I am so very excited everyone, my atc is signed, sealed and delivered....to the mailbox..lol. I hope the recipient likes it. It is so good feel like this again. Stay tuned for when she receives her mail I will post the picks of the completed atc also. Wow.. Why did I not know about these atc things earlier, it is funny I have done a couple of comic book related ones for a fundraising auction for an aquaintance but had no idea what the crafters and mixed media artists can do, awesome! Well Everyone have a creative weekend.."heArtLilian

Oh where has my Muse Gone? on a mini staycation?

no, not a title of a song but seriously "Where art thou..umm art muse?"  I have been on a no art diet for a couple of days and that is soo not how i want to feel. I am little overwhelmed with trying to reorganize my art and craft things.  on top of that all the mundane house work that is sooo repetitive( i mean really scrubbing and folding and washing is gonna be part of the rest of my life sooo... i can pull my hair out sometimes... but don't get me wrong.  i do try to pull the supermom act sometimes and i do pay a price and that price is the overtaxed and overwhelming feeling I get that drives my muse away and I think she is secretly telling me to turn a blind eye to house cleaning and art and take my kids out(so she can have a break..i guess muses need some time to themselves too eh?).  So i will take at least today or tomorrow to reorganize my thoughts and maybe by WOYWW i will be up and at em'.  i am sure everyone gets these bouts and no amount of being inspired by every ones beautiful blogs and daily musings is gonna get one outta a funk except  Ditch Day.. (that's what it feels like anyway..yay)  but i have to remember the mess will be right where it was when i left hahaha.  i wish the art muse had a little wand to deal with that before taking hiatus.   hehe anyways keep on creating and inspiring..heArtLilian

what was that on my woyww #1 desk???

On wednesday I posted a pic of what was on my desk.  My big altered art journal was open and held a little sketch book in the middle.  Eliza at Queenartoypia ( you should give her a visit if you get a chance)asked if i could get a bigger picture of the one posted under this post.  so here you go for anyone interested.  I also added some other pages that were in this sketch book.  Mind you it is my sketch book that i pick up and put down even if it is to scribble.  so not very many finished pieces in here.  Hope you enjoy.  And thanks for the Interest Eliza!!  much love... heArtLilian..
and this is she...

sorry but it was taken in natural afternoon light

well i hope u enjoyed.  i just draw and sketch no matter how silly or yucky the image.  because it is all part of the process.!!  now go and create and share!!
