I've decided that I'm adopting the attitude of my friend, Leslie, who compares her life during this time of year to being at summer camp. If you've been reading this blog, then you know that there hasn't been much jewelry making going on, so I've had to find other ways to engage my creativity and my time. I've been taking nature walks, watching movies, reading and doing arts and crafts other than working with silver clay. (That's really WORK, not a true camp activity!) I haven't made any lanyards, or popsicle-stick houses, or jersey loop pot holders, either.
But, I did finally finish painting my table. It used to be ugly dark stained wood - the top is made of plywood. After priming it, I painted the whole thing with the light blue color, then put the cartoon characters on it. That's how I spent my Independence Day weekend. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to put any designs on the legs - I think I'll just sit with it as it is for awhile. Whaddaya think? Do I have another career here?
