The Artful Dodger

Monday, Jan 24

This is what my conscience calls me. 🙂 You see, I intended to write this weekend.

I worked on art projects instead. I made oyster stew in my crock pot–delicious. I slept a lot, due to the lingering cold. My nephew Mike and his sweet Sara came by, bringing some of Mike’s homemade summer sausage. I listened to the current book, “Clara and Mr. Tiffany”, which is beautifully written, sure to delight anybody with a penchant for color and art.

The point is, while I was making ATCs (artist trading cards), I was able to work out some things that had been bothering me plot-wise. In fact, the whole rest of the book fell into place, and now I’m ready to roll again. This often happens when I’m playing with glue and glitter and all the rest–I get ideas.

Some people would tell you I get too many ideas. 🙂 There it is again, the firefly syndrome.

Since so many of you have asked me about Artist Trading Cards, I will place a Youtube video on this blog sometime today.

In the meantime, I have work to do.
