I don’t post everyday, but I have been doing well at doing something creative every day in some small way this week (even just fancying up envelopes for the wedding thank you cards I’ve been mailing out). I think I started out, being green and keen, with dreams of biggish things. I’m aiming at smaller threads which I can weave into my day-to-day for now, the better to make a habit (I know I will be a Creative Every Day 2010 participant — life beyond November)!

Here is something to show, however, as the sharing is part of the process. I have been inspired by theHOPErevo – leaving random “love” notes (platonic) about for strangers to find . . . the origins of the project are in New York City, but god Toronto could use a boost of this kind as well! As a random act of kindness sort of woman, this appeals to me immensely and so I started to play with ideas . . .

I am still working on ideas for my “dog” painting, and I am playing with ideas for homemade Christmas presents, but I’ll work with small drops as I bolster myself. Job searching, especially after a gap, is humbling at the best of times.
