My last blog posting was over a month ago.
Summer months are always a mix bag for me.
My creativity is more sporadic and unpredictable.
I feel a pull in different directions during the summer months.
Since my last blog posting
We enjoyed a few days in Estes Park, CO where we enjoyed a few hikes, fishing (hiked to a lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, visited with former Houston neighbors who have a summer home in Estes Park and even spent time at the YMCA of the Rockies craft room!)
A few days later, the kids and I went on our annual road trip to El Paso, Texas to visit my parents, sister, nephews, niece and other family members. We celebrated a few birthdays and spent quality time with family. Kids and I cherish this time.
After two weeks in El Paso, I continued working on my vintage linen pin cushions created using vintage embroidered linens and various vintage molds, including Jell-O and heart shape molds.
We were back home for just a week when the kids and I went back on the road for a short trip to Ft. Collins, CO for my daughter's student/parent orientation at CSU (Colorado State University).
Exhausting but very informative 2 days.
Now, we are back home and looking forward to staying home.
In between all this traveling I am rather surprised I managed to stay focused to get more than 75 new pin cushions done. My next show will be September 5th at A Paris Street Market.
Until then, I have several goals:
My craft room is a mess...again. Need to work on it!
I have a long list of items I want to create, including creating Halloween items.
I am hoping to re-open my Etsy shop.
However, like I tell my daughter, let's focus on what we have accomplished and not so much on what we still need to accomplish! So with that in mind, I am happy to share
my new pincushion photos I posted on
my Instagram and Facebook account for Isa Creations Vintage.
I am not sure how to link my Instragram account but here it goes
And, here is what I created during our trip to Estes Park (YMCA of the Rockies craft center). A large wooden lazy susan with a house mosaic design. I still need to paint the edge of the wood and the base.
