So much to do

And it goes without saying- so little time. I'm currently working on a chunky book swap. Have a couple mock ups done- waiting for them to dry to see which I like better, then I'll live with it for a little bit & pick the one I want to make for the swap. They are very similar- just little differences, but even now- I'm leaning towards one- so I suppose that's the one. I'll scan & post soon.

Part of my problem right now is that my work area is a complete disaster. As a matter of fact- since the same things are sitting on my table- seems I'm using them in all my pieces. The really old book- The Count of Monte Cristo from the late 1800's, a set of alpha stamps, beads & headpins. Guess it's time to do some switching around & cleaning up. Well- I'm going to try to do a deco or two while I wait for some paint to dry.

Swap your art out!

Looks like this is going to be the year of swaps for me- both hosting & participating. I've done a chunky book & 2 ATC swaps so far- with a few more chunkies & ATC & book & art doll swaps coming up in the next couple months. Should keep me busy. Here's a pic of my ATC for the Vintage Travel swap on MMA. Gave me a chance to use some postage stamps that I bought on eBay last year. One of my less active groups (with lots of potential) was going to close last week unless someone took over ownership. So I did (Cathy's going to give me a hand). Changed the name to BookArtz, and am still revamping the group so that it's more "me". I'll be happy with it. Announcing a chunky book swap later tonight. Just wrapping up some other things first. Hoping the group has lots of fun book swaps. But I still love the deco group. Off to get some work done.

Things to do this year

So being the chronic listmaker that I am- of course I have a list of things that I want to accomplish during 2006. Setting up a blog is one of them. Let's hope I am consistant & prolific enough to actually have pictures to post & techniques to add. I won't list my other goals now.....then I'd be accountable!
