My creative energies have been all over the place lately. I do have some new pages complete in my sketchbook project...just need to scan and show.
Of course the balloon release is on my mind, and in my activities. I have no idea how many people to expect...which doesn't bother me except for wanting to have enough balloons and helium. I've planned and prepared for events before, but this one feels so much weightier because I want it to be meaningful for everyone who comes. It's not the art show that I organized in California...where I realize some people may not get it, and I don't care. This is our children. My wanting to please everyone becomes a glaring monster, and with all the terrific suggestions I've gotten, I realize how much more this event could be. I hope it can be more...and better...and different in future years (if it's done in future years). I feel bad, because I'm sticking to something so simple and basic. Like I'm not giving our children the best, and what they deserve. And if the parents end up disappointed, then I've let their children down too. Weighty thinking, I know, but there you go.
But the last two days have been focused on getting some stuff done for etsy . I'm learning more about the Day of the Dead, and decided to make some postcards that would be available for people to send in celebration. I have one available...and more in process. And with Autumn knocking, I've been working on cowls. Again, only one listed right now, but have a few about ready to list.
