Getting back into the groove

I was humming and haaing about sending an envelope into Pip's envelope project... I really wanted to do it, but I'm trying to prioritise better and I definitely have other things that are higher up on the list...

But then I saw that one of my favourite illustrators, Allison, had gone ahead and done it, and I got all inspired, grabbed an envelope and some paints and bloody well DID IT.
I was inspired by the stamp actually - it was from a 'Country Show' stamp set. Plus S is begging for a merry-go-round theme for her birthday in July, so this is good practice.

And what to put in it... you know when you are in the mood to fill a bag to drop off to Vinnies, and you start, and there's suddenly heaps of stuff you'd like to donate... it was like that. It would have been very easy to get stupidly excited. But I had already stuck the stamp on, so couldn't get too carried away. Here's a peek...

So now I'm all warmed up and have to paint some more. But am also trying to prioritise being in bed by 11pm. Sometimes it's hard to stop...

(NB. It's obviously also hard to stop the full stop thing I've got going on in this post...)


  1. I think the good Lord did the right thing when, at your inception, he crammed you bursting-full with talent and energy!

  2. It's hard isn't it, when there are soooo many good projects about and you have soooo many other priorities ...but what a fabulous envelope you have made! Really glad you decided to send something :D
    I know what you mean about getting carried away though, I was thinking about sending an A4 size envelope to fit in all the things I wanted to send but then thought better of it :)

    I'll have to pop by Pip's shop to see the display.
