Daily Grind



These postcards, and two more which have been sent, are all I've been doing recently. I guess it's a rose and tulip series. I'm truly in a creative slump. Next week maybe I'll come out of it and start a new project, or maybe not. In the meantime, I have half a kitchen, it's a beautiful May here with trees in full bloom, and it's also graduation weekend. Hubby went off this morning with baby blue University of Michigan cap, gown, and hood, six-inch diameter "gold" chair professor medal to wear around his neck, and last but not least, the sacred lapel pin (not a flag, but the Golden Dome). Academic regalia is an interesting throwback to past times; maybe only the military is the same nowadays. I'm off to a soup kitchen volunteer appreciation luncheon soon. Then tonight there is a graduation party for Bob's Ph.D. student. So life is busy, in a sort of day by day way.

The days like this (counter included/excluded?) create a good, healthy rhythm. I like the postcards and I'm thinking its amazing you could even do this with the traveling and kitchen work and uh...I think you're getting alot done.

And its all good, stuff too. Love these.

If you find a way out of your creative slump, let me know...I'm in it, too. Life just gets busy and time flies by. It's good, but it makes for not much accomplishment in the sewing studio.
