Did you have fun last week revisiting and continuing work on some of the previous challenges?
I got a little bit more done, but not nearly as much as I would have liked. I finally got my initial made out of barbed wire. My Cowboy had to help me, but he was patient, and I got it! I’ve put them all in a grouping on the wall by my ironing station in my sewing room. It still looks a bit sparse, so I may add some more as time goes on.
I added to one of my doodles, although technically, I did this on the plane coming home from California. I want to excerpt parts of this for other projects, so it has sparked some new ideas!
I’ve started several junk journals, but not one of them is far enough along to really look interesting yet. I started one for personal things that might have dates attached (for memory-keeping purposes), and then I started one in this book:
It’s for random things that don’t have dates (or even actual subjects) attached to them. Just fun stuff I like looking at for inspiration now and then:
Can you tell I’m not (and have never been) a scrapbooker?
This week’s task is a very simple one, so that you still somewhat have an extra week to do some more catching up, but I DO want you to put some concentration into it:
This may not sound like a creativity thing, but trust me, it is. It gets your mind working to conjure themes, pictures, and ideas.
And while you’re reading, pick out and mark your favorite passages, because next week, we’e going to do something with that. This is a two-part challenge, I guess you could say.
I’m a lover of the classics. I’m a huge Shakespeare fan. As far as poetry for poetry’s sake, I like Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, and Maya Angelou. As with quilts, I like a little bit of everything!
So choose your favorites, classic or contemporary, and spend some time with them this week. And don’t forget to make notes so you can go back and find your favorite passages. I can hardly wait to see what you will choose as your favorites! And if you end up with any extra time on your hands, you can do some more catching up on previous challenges. That’s what I’ll be doing!
