sometimes it just works out that way...

and sometimes it doesn't. today, however, was one of those good days, where i got a lot done, and didn't find myself completely overwhelmed, bored, or short of things to do. i even got to see my best friend today, so that makes the whole day even that much better!

i must say, though, that lately i've been feeling a little stuck as far as the flow of creative juices goes. i don't know if it's just a temporary rut, or if i've just sheltered myself too much lately, but i feel as though i'm coming up short somehow.

any ideas out there to help a fellow artist who's feeling stuck?

well, i have a couple of things i wanted to finish up tonight before i head off to bed, so i'm going to get going on that. hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

what i'm working on...

with christmas now less than 6 months away, i figured i'd better get the jump on ornament making and such. look at me trying to be productive :D anyway, while out shopping for resin, i came across new star molds that i thought could look pretty as an ornament. they had both large and small molds, so of course i had to buy both :)
here's what's come of it so far, and there's definitely a secret project in the works!

and be sure to check out my etsy site, as there's tons of new stuff going on over there, and will be newer stuff up soon! yay!

store of the week: edition 9!

so this week, as i sit here watching dan in real life, i scrolled through the new postings on etsy, and one store really caught my eye:

Renovated Light & other curiosities is run by Paula, in Bloomington, IN.

the store is eclectic and offers some really unique and cool items such as the following:

from the shop's announcement:

**COUPON CODES:** - "LOCAL" - use this coupon code if you can pick up your item on the south side of Bloomington, IN "RETURN" - Use this code if you are a return customer and have made a purchase from THIS ETSY STORE. If you are both - I love you!!!! Convo me to work out the details. :-)

Now - Welcome to Renovated Light! My name is Paula Patton ( I am offering lamps that I make from a variety of recycled parts from broken and discarded lamps. I make clay lamps and will often add a recycled piece or two to give it interest. Sometimes all clay, sometimes all recycled, definitely unique! Along with making clay lamps, I throw and handbuild with a brown stoneware and a large variety of glazes. I love how the glaze melts over the pot to give it it's final personality! I hope you enjoy my shop, if you have any questions or would like to discuss a custom piece, just convo me!

hope everybody is having a safe and great weekend!


i've succumbed...

you can now follow me on twitter:!/equal_e

so go do it! cause i'm lonely over there, all by my lonesome :)
