I have never been much on making New Year's Resolutions but....I do like to set some goals.
Last year's goal was new carpet and a cleaner, simpler decor. The carpet was installed in March and through out the year I cleared out the garden shed, the garage, closets, drawer, etc. Mission accomplished, well, pretty much.
This year, I am going to volunteer less time to community projects and use the time "creating"! It doesn't matter what I create, or the medium I use to create it....it can be painting, collage, gardening, baking, writing a blog...but my goal is to do something EVERY DAY that is creative.
Started New Year's Day helping my Granddaughter's make jewelry, since then I've started a journal, cleaned and rearranged several shelves and, even, made bread pudding. Last week, I finished this assemblage.
This piece is a nod to the book titled, Last Child in the Woods. The author discusses the lack of opportunities for this generation of children to play and explore the out of doors on their own and some of the ramifications. It is a good read and very informative.
I used the lid of a wood cigar box and added the child's photo, cardboard, some twigs with copper leaves, cheesecloth, lace and a rusty hinge, birch bark and old clay marbles......all frosted with melted bees wax.
Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment. I am linking to Create Everyday, go to button at top of page to see the work of many creative folks.
