Altered Wood Blocks

OK, let me first say, I am looking at my calendar and I realize I have not blogged all week. My apologies. I have been thinking of blogging but I had so much going on. Lets see....my son returned home from college, my daughter had a wisdom tooth removed, I got some kind of stomach virus and was so very sick one day this week. It's been a long and weary week and yet....I made it! YAY!!! It is Saturday and I have had a very creative day so far. Actually, the creativity did not stop.....it just kind of slowed down. So, that being explained.....Here is what I have been up to.

I call these "Mood Blocks". I just wanted to do something different in the altered block area. I have this little glass box that I am going to set several "Mood Blocks" in. The idea is that you would place the mood block that matches your current mood on top of the box. That way, no one has to guess your mood. This could be very handy for husbands, bosses and fellow employees. No more guessing. There is room in the box for several more moods....thank goodness because we have many don't we?! I'm thinking "Creative Mood", "Sad or Depressed", "Undecided", "Give me chocolate and no one gets hurt"....many moods that can be depicted on these blocks.
I'm also working on
  • crochet project mentioned in last blog
  • a little puppy scrapbook about Sebastian for my husband
  • I bought some chip board today to make a journal
  • I want to do a series of "80's Girl" paintings. I have a few ideas. I was inspired while listening to the 80's station on the satellite radio.

So, just in case you thought I was loafing....I am still clicking along. So much going on in my head. So many things to make...so many things to learn...so many cool people to meet.
