Look, the pictures are back! I did make it to 50 pictures during the month of Nov. Life got a little bit busy so I didn't quite get to the last few shots so I'm tossing in a few more now. I think I can count the NaNoPhoMo a success though. And hella fun. =)

Specific to this shot, I'm sorry for it being out of focus but there's something so beautiful about the lighting on the strands of hair that I just can't resist.

Covered breaks the macro mold a little bit. It's shot in macro mode but it's not quite a close-up. However, I like the combinations of shapes so here it is. ;)

Fall Trees






This is going to be one of my favorites I think. Something about the bare tree branches reflected in the raindrops is just beautiful.

cards
Only thing I've done recently that was creative was to enhance a premade card for a friend's birthday...

I did some simple calligraphy for the message, and then used a craft punch of her favorite animal to clip catalogues to do a sort of collage surrounding it. Bonus points for using things I was about to toss out (yay found art and recycling!), and finding meaning in it--I realized the things I was clipping for the collage were things I'd wish for her or wish to remind her of...then challenged her to see if she could identify them.
Ways to drive them mad...

(having issues with lj's "ScrapBook" - sometimes the photos show up, sometimes it's "little red X land". May need to move over to a flickr account or another photo hosting site. grrrr. **EDIT** A little research shows that LJ is aware of the problem & is hopeful that it will be fixed in the next couple of days.)

baby shower gifts
Cool idea from the weekend:

A Puerto Rican friend having a baby in February got, as a gift, a couple dozen onesies in different sizes...decorated with the Taino (native) pictographs. Just simple white onesies, made wonderful with careful addition of brightly colored symbols with coordinating decoration on the collar, that happen to be culturally significant to the mom.

Great idea. Don't know what kind of fabric pain or marker was used, but the effect was good. I think for all the upcoming births in my friends circle, this could be a great way to do something for them.
Of course, for me it'd be geeky stuff.
Like one soon-to-be daddy is a huge Star Wars fan. I think he needs onesies with Darth Vader and R2D2 on them. Maybe a Rebel insignia, but the dad's more into the Sith.

This is another one of those where the idea is good, but the picture doesn't quite work. I think "Greater Than" works well, but that "Less Than" just isn't as strong of a picture.

Books on Creativity
I've been bad. Terrible, in fact. I was productive, but not artistic at all since last weekend. It's been days since I made something. I think the problem lies in thinking of art as playtime instead of something I need to be disciplined about...therefore, organizing my home takes priority over practicing creativity.

In an effort to shake up my attitudes about it somewhat, I've taken an interest in books about creativity, and have lately been reading Sweat Your Prayers, which is good.
Some others on my shelf or on my wish list:

The Artist's Way

Women, Creativity and the Arts

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and Drawing on the Artist Within

Undressed Art: Why We Draw

Anybody have any other suggestions or comments on the books?

Blegh and double blegh
So. I started out today thinking I'd finish up three more scarves, for a total of 11 and make some more cuts of some new fabric and maybe do some beadwork.
Here's how the day actually went:

I started sewing. I broke the thread three times. I kept adjusting tension, finally found a stitch/tension that worked with the fabric. I thought. I broke a needle.

New needle, sewing again. Broke a needle.

Decided to break from that, and cut the new scarves. Come back to find that a whole pile of nice folded ready to sew pieces had become my littlest cat's new FUCKING PEE PILE. I washed every piece of fabric. Twice. By hand. Who knows if they'll be salvageable. Maybe, since I got them right after it happened. I doubt it. Even if I managed to actually clean them, I think I'd just feel *wrong* trying to sell something that my cat had peed on.

Started sewing again. Managed to somehow completely fubar a seam. Take it out. Stab myself in the thumb with my seam ripper while I was at it. Realize the material for the lining was too fragile for that, lining ruined, gotta take the whole thing apart and get a new lining.

Start sewing a different scarf. Break a needle.

Give it the fuck up for the night and go read a book instead.



And tomorrow was supposed to be the day I take them to sell. I mean, I suppose I still can, I have seven, and three others done but for the sewing up of the hole, so I could *show* him those. But I wanted more complete scarves.



I'm surprised I didn't kill my cat, really. Damn little fucker runs fast when she wants to.

These were taken at work & once again - holy lighting difficulty, Batman. Other than hijacking a table lamp, I don't have much in the way of ability to alter lighting. This causes much frustration. *snap* Damn....camera shadow. *snap* Damn...blurring. *snap* Damn!Argh!Grrr!

Still, I'm really loving this project. =)
