Splash Award, RAK and New and Unfinished Projects

Awwww, Angela over at Creative Soulful & Sexy has awarded me the Splash Award.  This is an award that is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive and inspiring blogs.  WOW!, now THAT'S an honor! . . .
Thanks Ang!

And look at what I received in the mail from Marilyn Gallas of  Studio 274 - tablemate on my recent cruise.  It's a little RAK (Random Act of Kindness) book of memories of our cruise . . .







Sweet huh? I thought so TOO - Thanks Marilyn!

My creative juices have been just chomping at the bit to get out all WEEK!  I'm thinking I'm going to have to come up with a project inspired by THIS  

And I need to complete the project I started on the cruise in one of the Wendy Vecchi workshops.  I think it was intended to be an Art Inspiration Board, but I've decided to make mine a "Bucket List".  Once I've completed designing my board, I'm going to start gathering photos of things to pin on my board that I want to do before I "kick the bucket".
Have you always wanted to do something but thought you were too old now to do it?   Did you know that Grandma Moses, a self-taught artist from upstate New York who first came to public attention at the age of 80, created 1600 works of art before her death at the age of 101?!

I also want to start making some more of those shadow boxes this weekend.  AND I want to get back to my KC Willis workshops and . . .

I always feel like if I write down what I plan to do and put it out here on my blog, that will encourage me to get started and even finish whatever it is.  You know, sort of like write it down and make it happen?  Yeah, like that!

What are YOU working on this weekend???

Gosh, you have a whole lot on your plate! Well, this weekend I want to take it "easy" and refuel my soul. So far that's involved 2 lattes, my jammies and a WHOLE LOT of glitter. I am covered in it. And my freshly cleaned counter top is now a huge mess.
I hear thunder. The world is very odd to me today. It's heavy... ever get that feeling? I don't like it.
Creative hugs and stuff to your weekend!

Hi friend! That's a great strategy to write it down, then you'll be more likely to do it! My life operates on sticky notes! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Get that Christmas music playing!
I've got a chair to finish painting and jewelry to finish. Lots to do! Have a great Sunday!
Smiles-
Melissa
