In My Studio – January 2

Posted by lori . 10 Comments


This week, I created some “canvases” for myself.  Back in July, I made a little yarn vase and was hooked; so, I wrapped some new vases.  Now, I’ll work on some embellishments for them.  I don’t know if it is easier to create a background and let that inspire me, or plan the whole project in advance.  Since I don’t have a distinctive “style” or process,  I’m going to start with a background and move forward from there.

This year, I’m participating in the Creative Every Day Challenge.  Simply put, it’s a challenge to do something…anything that is creative, every day.  To help myself “remember,” I hung up a calendar to record my progress.  This is the lovely Celebrating Greyhounds 2012 Calendar.

Something else I did that was creative…I moved into the 21st century with my nail color.  I’m currently sporting Essie “Merino Cool” on my fingernails and Essie “Bahama Mama” on my toes.

    Loving the last photo.

    I was given a Greyhound calendar this year. First time I’ve had one.

  • I love that color, Merino Cool on your fingers! It’s been a while since I did a color similar to that and I think I might be a bit motivated to try that out. Why not, right? It’s time to not be so conservative/traditional on my nails!

    And I love that Greyhound picture and the quote to go along with it – so true!

    Your pal, Pip

    P.S.: Love the new polish!

    I think those vases are really cool as they are. Perhaps they need some of those cool fabric flowers of yours attached to them…

    I love that nail polish color! I always have my toenails painted, but I rarely paint my fingernails because it always chips off as soon as it starts drying. :/

    That quote is awesome!

  • Doing something creative every day…I salute you, Lori!

    Love those nail colours. I used to bite my naIls terribly. Then one day, quite unexpectedly, I managed to stop. About 10 years ago I would say. Anyway, I always thought it had something to do with being given a shimmery baby pink nail polish! I love strong colours now, like dark chocolate brown and silver but I find it impossible to do the dark ones myself. Too messy! Besides, they’re tough to maintain when you have to mop and wash dishes lol.
