This and That


I signed up for a project that I have no clue what to do with. Oh my. Panic. Sweat. Tears. Sleepless nights. Okay so maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit. But not much. I have SOME idea of what I'm going to do with this, but---not being an assemblage person, I'm going to have to really, really, pour on the creative juices. OR, start drinking the the, quote, 'creative juices' unquote :)

It's been a busy week at work so not much going on in the painting department or rather not much in the finished painting department.

love all the little facts about you Jodi.
I'm watching AI and B too!
I won't tell if you don't, lol.

Patti said...

That is the beauty of signing up for projects/swaps - sometimes you find yourself in foreign land - and that's a good thing! I just finished a swap that really made me stretch:) I'm sure you'll come up with something fabulous!

Tess said...

Love getting to know you better Jodi. Great bunch of stuff. I love're gonna make a book right or maybe a a cork person on a board? Hmmm!!! You got me stumped too. I think stretching yourself is a great idea, like I'm doing with MIsty's journal challenge. Do share when you can what you doid with the swap project. Fun, Fun!!
Oh and I cried at MArley Me too, and my little granddaughter. I felt so bad for her, she was expecting a fun movie, not a sad cry your eyes out movie. I almost left once I figured out what was about to happen, but I didn't.

Heidi said...

haha, "sale" as a brand of clothing. You're funny!

I'm Toni said...

Hey Jodi - I wasn't there to pick up my M4 box, so I'm pouring over the photo of yours,trying to see what I'm going to have to play with. Penny's going to give me mine tomorrow. Already breaking out in a sweat, panic setting in....

we'll have fun whatever we do, right? right?

Jeanne Rhea said...

Can't wait to see what everyone makes with the box of stuff. I bet that it will be a wide variety of creations. Wish they could all be put out without no one knowing who made what and then I could guess the artist. I think I might be able to do that with a few of them.
