Crank up the volume

The kids have gone back to school today and just in the nick of time, I'm feeling rather exhausted in my role as Home Entertainment Manager, my back hurts and my pants are too tight. I started the day with a new diet (pants) went to the physio (back) then came home and played Nickelback really loudly (mental health) I spent the rest of the morning drinking coffee and wondering how you get a 'gravelly' voice like the lead singer, truly fabulous but surely it can't be natural?? Anyway, I digress... I did manage to get a bit done on my twirly wirly wire project that I started last week. I set myself the colour blue as a theme but somehow along the way it all went wrong and of course I wandered fairly far off track, so much so that I made a totally brown page with the word blue on it (written in brown scrabble blocks!!) . I haven't photograhed that one as it's just plain silly, not that I think art should have a reason and hate those 'why' or 'what does it mean' questions but even I have to admit to being completely puzzled by my latest effort.
Destination unknown, yep pretty much sums it up

This is so beautiful! Wow! As far as the brown piece that was going to be blue..I do that all the time..I will have an image in my mind and by the time I am done, it is nothing like what I had planned. Sometimes it feels like things just create themselves...Melinda

Your tag book is FAB, FAB, FAB! I love the idea of your brown "blue" page!!!! hahaha And I am a Nickleback fan too. It's the voice. I could listen to him sing the phone book and enjoy it. :) Coffee and loud Nickleback sounds like a day well spent!
