In my head I had pictured a really great wreath, unfortunately, it didn't turn out that way. I am knee deep in Holiday Projects around here. Sometimes the projects fail. I'm going to have to chalk this one up as a fail and move on. Unless someone has a really great idea for it... anyone?

I have also been failing at "me time" I have been wanting to draw and paint soooo badly lately. Not for work but for fun, not anything that somebody wants me to draw. I don't seem to be able to find the time. I am hoping it comes soon. While I'm asking questions, anyone have any ideas for carving out time? Anything that works for you?

I'm also considering some challenges, like Illustration Friday, design challenges, etc. I have only participated in a handful of things like that. It seems like fun. I was doing some jewelry designing the other day for a company and I had a set variety of beads to work with. I came up with some designs that I really liked. I realized again, that when I given limitations the creativity comes out. I think challenges would help me that way. I thought about pulling out a handful of my beads and challenging myself to work with what I have grabbed. Oh so many things to think about. Question three... Anyone working on any challenges right now? Got any suggestions?

Maybe I should change the title of my blog post to questions.

Make sure you come back tomorrow, I have my biggest give a way ever starting tomorrow. It's going to be fun!

Have a good day,

  1. What about a chunky stuffed Christmas tree that fills the middle of the wreath with balls (beads) sewn or glued on for ornaments?

    1. Linda,

      Thats a good idea. The first time I read your comment, I thought you were talking about using the triangles to build a tree, so I got to thinking about that as well. If I end up working something out I will be sure to show you.

      My studio has lots of these failed projects lying around!

  2. I see it with charms sewn on the end of each triangle and bows between each one.

    Cheery wave from

    1. I was originally planning felt balls on the ends, we do think alike. :) It just ended up being too "thin" for my tastes. Maybe I'll send it to you to finish!

  3. Maybe put a second wreath of flowers in the center. Something like big sunflowers. That would be summery and cute.

  4. Carving out me time is important. I recommend you set aside the 1st 30 minutes after coffee or with the 2nd cup. It won't happen every day but it may happen twice . Look at it as your best friend time.
    Send that wreath on to someone else. I hate it when I get mulish about a fail.

  5. Carved out some time and rode the horse yesterday. I hope you can find your time.

  6. You are so creative and thank you for this give away, I was sent to your blog by Mary of So Maybe I can.
