" The best laid plans of mice and men" are often altered.
I had good intentions of starting the year with making art (I am sharing pieces from my archives- these ATCs are not new). But instead, New Year's Day I was taking down Christmas and cleaning. I have been told that whatever you do New Year's Day, you will be doing all that year. Hmmm. Is that why I feel this urge to clean and organize? Boohoo! I have shot myself in the foot!
So, if you don't see much new art from me, rest assured it's because I am scrubbing my floors with a toothbrush or I'm ironing my bedsheets. heehee And at the risk of sounding like the new "Hints From Helois", I have to tell you that if you have candle wax drips on a tablecloth, they come out easily with a steady stream of boiling water (I just held out my table cloth on the back steps and rinsed through it over the flower bed). It also worked for a sweater I had spattered candle wax on (no, not from creating bee's wax art, but from messing around with candles that wouldn't burn evenly).
2009 is the Chinese Year of the Ox, but for me, it looks to be the Year of Cleaning & Organizing. How's it shaping up for you?
