Pressure

Today I got a lot accomplished. The good thing about pressure is that forces you to do things you’ve been putting off. Last year after Holly Jolly I had all sorts of plans about what I was going to do for the next one. Now that it’s suddenly five days away, I’m asking myself: “Why haven’t I done everything I promised myself I would do? After all, I’ve had a whole year to do it!”
But then I realized I’ve actually accomplished quite a lot since the last Holly Jolly sale. I’ve written a book for one thing, so why should I give myself a hard time? Because of my book, most of the digital work I’ve done in the last few months has been in black and white. I think I will frame some of them in the future, but right now I’m focused on color—and really enjoying it. I hope people like my new stuff, but you can never second-guess what appeals to people. The bottom line is: if it works for me, it works.
David took three of my digital collages up to The Art Gallery of Peel for their Christmas Sale. To be honest, I just grabbed what was handy and gave them to him. I also formatted another ATC of Ann for Canadian Scrapbooker.

I ADORE this collage! I can't exactly read the script. But the baby looks like you. I love the old fashioned tinted look and the map.

And you have accomplished tons! A book. Imagine that. Plus all this wonderful art.
