Barely there

Warning: aside from the nudity above which makes my 10 year olds blush, the following may include a rapid stream of consciousness..
So I've not been blogging. Every time i think about what to write, I'm faced with the voices: "who cares? who really is interested? what should i say? what else can i tell them? surely they just don't want to know what i've made this week, huh? do something no-one else does... make your blog unique. blah blah blah.
so any suggestions may be welcome!
Meanwhile - the sketches above were my attempt at a life drawing class. I spent the first 30 minutes cursing and swearing about how much i hated the whole process that is, life drawing. She kept moving, i wasn't in the right place, my drawing was sh*!t. Then we had a break, then I got into the swing of it, then i quite liked it. Then she moved, then he said "that's it for tonight".

Weekend work

Hello, nice to see you again. I know that sometimes this is all a bit 'show and tell', but, well that often is my life! So many people do all the other stuff so well - that for the moment I'll just stick to this aspect of blogging.
Thanks to those that have shared how they choose a craft project. I began this weekend scribbling all the ideas from inside my head onto separate index cards - while eating my porridge. Once they were released onto card i felt alot freer! Then I saw my envelope that had arrived earlier from artgirlz. Breakfast aside i got stuck in. . they have a huge range of bits and bobs, felt shapes and kits like this pin - definitely worth a cybertrip.
It was so much fun working out the personality of this little figure. I love how you can make the arms and legs move. Miss R is modeling it here - so it will possibly be a better ratio pin on an adult - like me, tomorrow!

Urban puppy

Apologies, Sunday night usual blog night, came and went. The week had gone well ending with a movie night at a friends place - the only reason i mention this is because we were using a projector on a wall and whilst deciding which old movie to watch we called up the web. .. Quite confronting to see your own blog really large in a friends lounge room! But good for choosing which pizza we wanted.. anyway..
the kids and i then ventured to Spotlight bright and early last Saturday. I found myself with fabric to make 3 skirts, a tote bag and do some embroidery... but unfortunately i walked past some lovely muted 'folk art' paint bottles... Sunday morning i was up at 7.30 ready to get into it...
BUT where to start? I sat at my mac, but that was too much like the rest of my week... My fabric was washed and in a stack. The paint beckoned.. I braced the shed (a bit chilly) and painted 5 mini works... I wasn't quite sure if they are my style.. here are 2 of them. I don't really know what my style is?
So the dilemma - Saturday approaches .. where creatively to begin? How do you decide?
