taking a breather

There are days like today where I'm on the computer all day long and my hands crave something to do. I find that if I take a small 'crafty' break I get more ideas for my digital work. Does that make sense? I guess it's just the way my mind works. Here are the results of one of today's mini-breaks. Just a "for fun" piece - with a tiny piece of junk mail that I got yesterday.

Something else I did on another break was to look at the new work and websites of some of the artists that are participating in November's Poppytalk Handmade market. There is so much wonderful work to look at! In no particular order, these are just some of my favorites:
- industrious lily
- green chair press
- alyssa ettinger
- bookhou
- cedar seven
- and here's my page :)


  1. Hi Patricia, thanks for your comments on my post... you might be interested in this article on downplaying christmas! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=490925&in_page_id=1770&ct=5

    Wishful thinking perhaps, but at least someone's thinking about it.

    Love you blog by the way, have been checking in for a while now. Cheers. Tess (@ metremade)

    Hope you don`t mind to make this comment here...

  3. Spot on. There's nothing better than getting away from the glowing liquid crystals that hypnotize me and getting my hands dirty. I should be posting some new work soon. I just picked up three more frames at IKEA last weekend. Take care.
