State of the... blog?

I must say, blogging so far has been incredibly inspiring! I've been keeping my vow to be creative daily and it's doing me a world of good. I've been less irritable than normal (ask the hubby) and have been feeling like I'm actually accomplishing things.

For instance, all day Sunday I painted. I had been meaning to do something for the small guest bathroom. I finally got up the nerve to do it! The paint is a copper and silver color to match the colors. I think it's a pretty soothing linear piece. It makes me want to paint more. :)

My creative endeavor for today (Monday night) included a small pincushion made of polymer clay, fabric, paint, and stuffing. I've had this little hybrid snail/ladybug (in the wrong color) in my brain for a little while. He needed to come out.

Anyone have any ideas for a name?

OOoohhh, wow your painting is beautiful!! How did you get such clean lines??? I need to paint this weekend, I think .. I got some new acrylic paint and canvases so I may as well!!

That snail/ladybug pincushion is ADORABLE!!! Did you mold it and bake it in the oven?

Way to stick to the creative everyday (CE). I love both the painting and the snail. This CE will make us try all sorts of different media! I really like blogging now too, because it forces me to write creatively at least a couple times a week. Keep it up!
