When I got there and received my little block mount, I was over the moon.
I could literally visualise my exhibition wall lined with these darling little blocks. But when I collected Corks from school and she had a closer look - she exclaimed "oh no" and I was a little taken back - I thought I had found my way forward with how I was going to exhibit. Her "oh no" was about the fact that it no longer looked like a teabag.
And of course she was right. It's so darling as it is - but what makes these little pieces so special is the fragility of the teabag and that you painted something so small on it. Loosing that would be a shame. I put it out there online and I got back a resounding no. So it was back to the drawing board for me. As luck would have it I spent sometime with Niece that evening, who works at a framers and she gave me some great advice and I'm off to see her at the shop on Sunday to work out some ideas. I'm once again so excited. But the wait is killing me... I'm dying to get my 60 pieces in and start this process. It's going to be a mighty process. And doing it monthly will be required.
Such a busy time, with birthdays and family, bus touring the city and with my Momma popping in for a visit, lots of homework and school stuff... I can say life is slowing down a little this week and I'm so grateful. As busy as it's been - it sure has been wonderful too.
Can I tell you how much I'm loving February and these gorgeous Rose Girls.
A theme helps keep me focused. And of course, I'm just loving red and green at the moment.
It's a nice change for me. This week has been busy - lots of driving around and lots of commitments But I'm happy to say we are through a lot of it and now this week we head into a heads down and exam week for the girls. Which means long study hours at home.
