I've Been Busy, Busy, Busy!

Have you noticed my absence lately?
I have been busy!
I mean really busy!
What in the world has me 
in a creative tailspin?

KC Willis Collage Camp!
Seriously, girls...
you know I don't get the 
sewing machine and ironing board
out for just anybody!

I have to admit that I have been in a big, old creative slump lately.  I was afraid that maybe my school administration job had killed every creative bone in my body. I feared that my creative days might be over. I couldn't get myself motivated enough to get off my big rear and spend time creating. 

Then the weirdest thing happened.  On a whim, I signed up to take KC's Collage Camp classes online. Why? I'm really not sure. That little creative voice inside my head just told me to do it.  When I signed up and looked at the other members, I felt totally overwhelmed by the amount of artistic talent in the group. What was I doing along side all these experienced artists?

Oh, my gosh, I have had the best time!  Everyone has been so friendly and supportive and KC really knows how to teach!  I looked forward to each video! I have learned so much, but best of all is that my creative spark is back!  Collage Camp has me on fire!  In fact, I just got through signing up for KC's new series of online classes called Mixed Media Mania! 

I am going to get brave in the next few days and show you some of the work I have done in Collage Camp.  It may take awhile though because I have to tear myself away from my creative work long enough to get on the computer to post!  

Hey, I have an idea!  Why don't you join us?  Need to get out of your slump or just learn some new techniques?  Click on either of the two KC Willis badges on my sidebar for online class information. We will have fun!

Thank you, Tristan! You saying that my work is lovely means the world to me!

Work it girl, work it! Tell Imogene to keep her boobs off your work table and out of your way!

I know how much you love what you are doing with your art right now and I'm proud of you! I think it means a great deal to make time in our lives to do things that we enjoy! Maybe I need to remind myself of that as well! And thanks for letting me have a sneak preview of your work, it rocks!

Take care, Sue
