Sixth Year of Projects - Week 8



Well this was a slow week with no real progress to show off.  I spent time letting my eyes heal and didn't really do much crafting at all!  I added three little mitered squares to my sock yarn scrap-ghan and I also added another inch or two to Bubbles.  Next week I hope to have some more progress to show off!!  But on the flip-side I had a follow up appointment for my eyes and the doctor was very happy with my healing.  He said I was healing faster than average! I suspect some of that is because I took it easy for the past week and really rested my eyes!

Now that the school year is back in full swing I also have less time to spend on crafting, but I do plan on making sure I spend some time on crafting each day - that is my relaxing time and gives me a lot of stress relief.

In other news I have picked up my paintbrushes again and have begun mixed media art journaling and Bible art journaling.

  3. Glad to hear your eyes are healing even better than expected. I have this idea that art journaling would be an awesome thing to do, but when I try to think of how to journal artistically I'm lost. I hope you continue share about it.

    1. Thanks! I just go for it and hope it turns out "artistic" For me it is more about the time spent letting go and painting :)

  4. I'm so glad your eyes are healing so well and that you did rest. Your art is beautiful! I just love butterflies and love the sprinklings of paint. I love doing that too. I haven't painted in quite a while now.
