I really don't know why I made the New Years resolution to do some journaling in 2009, cos I knew I wouldn't do it, I really would love to, but I just don't seem to be able to get around to doing it. A blank book, is worse than a blank...... well a blank anything really! One of these days I will start. but anyway, in the meanwhile (does that remind you of The Life of Brian??) I have started the 'Project for 2009' that I blogged about a bit further down the page. it's the Alphabet thingamajig ...... well it was, it is now covered in gesso. As it is impossible to dismantle it without ruining it, and therefore so fiddly to paint that I have decided against the 'perfect' paint effect and gesso'ed it as best I could and then sandpapered it back to give a distressed look, which of course also covers a multitude of sins, but I intend it to be a little bit autobiographical in an odd kind of way, so obviously it's going to be a bit distressed and battered. ( I hasten to add I have never been battered!!) Here it is, as it is ATM. Not going to hurry it along, will do a bit here and there as I feel like it, after all there are 60 4cmx4cm bits to fill. If I'm lucky I may just get a few friends to contribute a little 4x4 square .
and finally................... why are men sometimes so logical just when you don't want them to be?? I happened to mention to Matt today that I needed to organise my craftroom/his office as it was getting rather disorganised (to say the least)......... his only comment was 'Nick, you have just got too much stuff and it can't all fit in'................ I know he is right, but what is a girl to do??
