I couldn't have said it better...

Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you will be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do and damned if you don't.

This Woman's Work

Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman's work,
This Woman's world.
Ooh, it's hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the Father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking.

Of all the things I should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.

Hello dear ones,

So this year I was excited about learning several new techniques and by being inspired by wonderful artists. I was certain that I would have these skills and ideas rolled up into fabulous gifts for my friends.

From Ann-Denise and Dawn I've learned how to use paperclay (which I LOVEEEEEE) and have been inspired to create my own versions of snowmen for the holidays. Now, they aren't nearly as wonderful as Dawn's however I'm proud of my mis-shapen, big-nosed little snowmen. Of course, I've only actually finished one. How many days till Christmas?

I'm also planning on creating advent garland for various friends. Haven't started that yet and it's well...December 7th.

I've started an altered book for my best friend. So far I've done nothing but put gesso on a few pages to get them primed for what? I haven't any idea.

How is it that last month I thought I'd have enough time? Sweet mother of Pekingese! I'm running out of time!!!!!!

Anyone else out there realizing that their best intentions aren't going to make the UPS truck? LOL

Best wishes and high hopes to my crafty friends with much better time management!
