Due to a change in the school schedule that would have happened in spite of COVID-19, I no longer work on Mondays. My current goal is to keep Mondays open for lots of creative play & to make sure I schedule a time for it the rest of the week. Today, I played!
I started playing with my daily to-do list. It was time to make a cover page for November. I screwed it up a bit & proceeded to go all-in with gusto anyway. I’m not sure if I like it or not. The point of it all, besides the aforementioned needing a cover page, is that it was a good warm-up for the Creative Beastie & I before we took off full steam ahead.
Next, it was time to create paper mache clay using the recipe found at Jonni Good’s site Ultimate Paper Mache. Did I check to make sure I had everything I needed before digging in? Of course not! Luckily, I had just enough of everything, even the toilet paper. Speaking of, after reading the comment section, I may want to grab some extra rolls to have on hand because, you know…
Lastly, I glued on the head for Bun’s Gourd Trouble doll. In my excitement, I skipped a step but I think it will work out just fine when all is said & done. Nope. I’m not telling what I skipped either. Nope. You can’t make me. Not doing it.
I have looked at this tree just about every day for the last 20 plus years. I mean ever since it was a wee tree, planted with love by The Hubs & myself. Yesterday morning, I saw the headdress & arms & the dress… I just can’t unsee it now. How did I not see it before?
That’s the creative hootenanny happening in Flatlands of NW Ohio today. I have to let the “mashed potatoes” dry for a couple of days before I can start painting. I’ll most likely start on the arms & legs for Bun’s Gourd Trouble & have a meeting with my Gourd Trouble & see what it has to say.
I’ll catch you on the flip side!
