And Wednesday again...

I still cannot believe that I thought yesterday was Wednesday for half the day! 

But then again, I can. I've had a few strange days as I am trying to find my new routine. Now that I'm not taking a class, my days are wide open, which means I have to schedule how I spend my time and I'm not sure yet what the best schedule might be.
On Monday, I started out by having to go into town to run some errands and then didn't do much creatively after that. Yesterday, I started with paperwork and got involved with that for several hours. And again didn't do much creatively. Partly because my studio is upstairs and we've been having record heat and it gets pretty warm up there in the afternoons.
So, today I went straight to my studio and worked (or played, depending on how you look at it) for four hours! I came up with rough sketches for three paintings, one on a paper-collaged canvas (a recycled painting), one on molding paste into which I stamped a pattern, and the third on plain canvas.

I also worked on a few more felted hearts. I'm trying to get a number of them ready for my shop, which has been difficult. I find that I just want to give them away to everyone... (could there be a future giveaway?!? Hint, hint!). I do love getting to use all my beads again that have been stored away for some time. It might even be an excuse to visit the bead shop. What do you think?

Tomorrow, I am hoping to start my day out in the studio again and maybe I'll have some paintings-in-progress to show you. In the meantime, remember to enter my giveaway (just click on the photo in my sidebar)!!
