Ok Weekend Lets Get It On...

True to form, I am 3 days into my work schedule and already I am off track.  My problem becomes that as I am working on one thing, I get a really great idea for another project and since I am inspired and motivated for that thing, I stop what I was working on and fly to something else.  Here's the schedule I laid out for this week
1. Finish art block sets (5) - print artwork, cut papers, attach, cover with 3 coats poly - I did do these!! I just havn't done the poly coating, but I'll do that this weekend I think.

2. Make Art Necklaces (20) - print images, attach to glass, cut out, adhere to settings, attach bails and chains - Uhm no, havnt touched those.

3. Get (10) Journals done - print covers, attach to cut cardboard, gather papers, bind - Uhm no, havnt touched those either.

I did finish out the Trash/Scrap Art wall hangings that my son and I did together a month or so ago.  (scheduled for like week 3 or 4)  Here is one of them and it will be my inspiration for the weekend of work ahead of me.

Arent they lovely!  My son has a way with abstract color art, and he brings out the best in me for spontaneous art, creating with heart and not thinking.  I am saving the originals for the craft show, but there are prints available in my Etsy Shop.  They would look incredible framed on a wall together.  I have 2 other finished sets of different pieces my son and I did together, and those prints will also be listed later today. 

So I am believing in impossible things!... That with a weekend packed with one birthday party, a dinner date with friends, a home church gathering, and a labor day swim party with family,  I WILL get my list for this week complete and not lose my head.  

Dont forget, my SUPER SALE of small art journals is going on until Monday!! 
Only $10 to bring one home :).  

I hope you have a restful and magic-filled weekend with loved ones.  



  1. I really enjoy your work. The art blocks are amazing. You are such an inspiration! I am glad I found you.

  2. Love the little journals...ordered 2! Christmas shopping....

  3. Beautiful! I must tell you, I just read your bio and so connected with everything you! I hope to be able to connect with you more in the future..hugs :)

  4. I love the art blocks! I think they'd be equally cool sitting on a grown-up's desk at work as they would in a sophisticated little girl's toy chest. Hope you got them done so you can have the satisfaction of crossing them off your to-do list. :-)

  5. OOoooo love those art blocks. I am inspired to try something like that.

    And thank you for admitting that you don't always get everything on your "to do" kist done in time. It helps me to know that I am not the only one!

    I so enjoy reading your blog and seeing what you are up to.

  6. i need some of those them. i will soon have 2 get some! your work inspires me..thank you so much :)

  7. Wow, Harmony, you are an inspiration! I can so totally relate to what you said about working on 1 project when you get an idea for a 2nd, and you have to go start the new idea while it's magic is still fresh.
