Charged by cards

I’m enjoying my rapid pace card making this week as I get closer to the DAC Open Studios. This happens each year. I think I have all of this time to get ready and then suddenly, here it is! So I create in every spare moment each night, grabbing snippets of time between helping my son with homework, making dinner, doing dishes (well, finally my son is old enough to be bribed into doing the dishes for an allowance. YAY!) and talking myself in and out of going to the Y to work out.

This is the time when I can sit in my studio and get so lost (for a few minutes at a time) in cutting paper, splashing paint and designing. I really feel my heart rate increase when I create cards that I like. The process almost (almost) makes me forget that Craftland in Providence recently rejected my cards for their holiday season. Bah Humbug!

Oh well, here are two new ones they would have said no to. 🙂

DAC Open Studios

I’m working on more cards now, preparing for the Dorchester Arts Collaborative Open Studios. The event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 23 and 24, from noon to 5 p.m., at various locations throughout Dorchester, Mass. I will be at First Parish Church, 10 Parish Street (Meetinghouse Hill). If you are in the area, please stop by. In addition to the cards, I will be showing my beaded jewelry and artwork.

This top card fits the theme of “water” for the month of October for Creative Every Day. The ones below are part of my holiday series.
