Why is it?

I love this photo - I took it on the Esperance jetty -
it amazes me that a plant can survive in such a harsh spot -
surrounded by wood, bitumen and blue metal!

From Jacky Williams - Oriental ATC trade (and extras!)

Why is it that the project you are working on and that MUST be finished pronto is not the one you are wanting to work on!! I am sure it doesn't just happen to me. Maybe it means I like the planning more than the doing... or maybe it means I suffer "from the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" syndrome!

Anyway I pushed through it today and finished the big project that I was working on (I'll share later as it is a secret sort of swap for the 12 Days of Christmas) and that meant I had a little bit of time left to play with some other stuff. So I pulled out my beeswax and made a few ATCs and did a few other bits and pieces. Nothing to show at this stage from my activities today as I just have a lot of stuff "in progress". But what I can share is some of the beautiful art I have received and some more textured surfaces that are in progress.

Nice surfaces, Debbi. What is molding paste? Is it known as something else in the US maybe?

Shelly said...

Oh my, your works in progress make me swoon !! Lovely, lovely pieces.
So true about the focus issue on current projects.
