It's Goodwill Wednesday again, and I'm sorry to say that my internet isn't cooperating today. As I write this, my photos are refusing to upload, so I guess you will all have to do what I do every time I enter the local Goodwill- Use your imagination!
I've not been a very good little house keeper this week. I know my closets are overflowing with clothes and bins of unknown content, but I've just not been able to get motivated. I blame it on the cold weather, but I really think it's the fact that I know I'll just end up rearranging my junk- and not ridding myself of what needs to go right out the door and never seen again!
My biggest organizing problem is clothing and paper. How long do I really need to save an electric bill? Or a Christmas card? Or the expensive pair of jeans I wore twenty pounds ago?
I know I'm going to have to engage some tough love here. Soon.
So- I decided that I would play around with my art stuff yesterday. I got some while canvas for Christmas that was just burning a hole in my pocket (so to speak). And I tried to tell myself that experimentation was the funnest part of the artistic process. Plus, I could always paint the canvas white again if I didn't like the outcome.
A Goodwill find was actually involved. A paperback book of women's love poetry. A 50 cent purchase to tuck away in my purse while waiting for my oil change or the doctor to arrive. But, sorry to say- it was absolutely horrible. Don't be a hater- but I tore it up for my project. Which doesn't amount to a hill of beans if you can't see a picture of what I did with it. (I hate you internet!!) I'll have to show you some other time, and even though I'm not crazy about how the project turned out, I had fun experimenting.
A picture finally decides to load, but it's not one I needed to show you. It is, however, a photo of a little goodie my daughter gave me out of her auction box stash. I love it. The colors are so pretty...
Speaking of found treasures, I stumbled upon a website that I absolutely LOVE!
I think my next project will be making robots!!! Sculptures, really- that's all they are. But they're so cute! And I'll be able to recycle all the junky stuff that my husband has in the barn! It's a win/win situation!
Isn't life fun?
