A bit of a quiver

Linda commenting about me being so diciplined was like a red rag to a bull yesterday and I could hold out no longer, at precisely 11.58 last night I opened my first envelope! then it was a bit of a domino effect, you know when you eat that first bit of cake and can't stop yourself going back for more! but hey, it's the last day of the year and the deed is finally done!
After opening the first one I was however slightly concerned that I was undertaking some kind of psyco-therapy rather than completing an art journey (then again perhaps the two are closer than I thought) This one is dated 06.06.08 and is my head (aged 2yrs) on top of a rather 'lardy' sized angel/butterfly? with the words 'what's it all about' well... exactly!!
As for now, I'm just enjoying an awesome feeling of personal achievement, of setting myself a challenge that allowed me to step out of mothering for a moment and do something purely for myself.
Will get busy with the camera soon but for today I wish you all a happy festive New Year and a great start to 2009!!

What a precious girl! That box certainly DOES look inviting! What a fantastic project....I firmly believe that Art heals and is a necessary part of my life for sure ;)
***Happy New Year my friend***

Well, what I would like to know is, how such a creative, clever person such as yourself is going to display these? I think they are much too nice too hide away in a draw! (And perhaps they would be great as a reference library or inspiration wall hanging??)
