Late bloomers

I worked in the yard and brought in the canna bulbs for the winter.  Won't be doing that again next year.  I'm going to put them in the ground and if they don't come back, oh well.  Those things were married to those big pots even though I had let them get dry as a bone.  Killed my wrist.  The begonia was out there alone blooming like crazy with no attention or water.  Love that orange.  We just bring the whole pot in and they come back every year.

Messed up journal page.

1924 yearbook journal

I buried some of my girlish dreams under the decay of the citrasolve paper.  Maybe a few traumas also.

Flea market finds

 This is a entire stack of craft paper envelopes.  Gelli fun all waiting for the plate!
 The tiny Big Chief tablet is amazing!  I bought a new one of those every year even in high school.  My favorite school supply.  This one is a salesman samples, (I have quite a collection of paper samples now) and the National Geographic I've already played with.  Going junking always inspires creativity!
 Giant ball chain and a cool clasp.
Two almost full reams of old office papers for gelli printing with!

Citrasolve papers

Oh no, I overdid it on these papers today.  I'm in terrific pain of the right wrist.  I think I ruptured my carpel.  Ha.  The technique finally worked for me after I watched Cheap Joe's videos.  I only had a fourth of a bottle left from past failures, so glad that I didn't have more, I would still be on the back porch!  Turns out I was using too old of National Geo's.  I found the newer work better.  I just thought it was me so had just about given up on this project. The best ones came from 2000 and later.

It was an art frenzy and I'm so excited!  Feels so good to create again.  Well.  Everyday.
