Paint Party Friday

Hello Old Friends
I know I have been missing in action for some while now....I do drop in and check up on folks...just have a lot on my plate right now and have been reducing my  cyber time.
 I have been keeping busy and still searching for the missing Muse. 
To keep myself creatively active I have started painting aprons for co-workers. I paint on their work aprons and they donate yarn to my Hats for Charity goal for 2013. I made the first one on a whim for a friend and she picked up the baton and started an all out campaign for yarn. Here's her apron...


...and this is just a sampling of the yarn that has been donated since ..


My goal for 2013 is 100 hats :)  I have already finished 18  and with the help of my co-workers and friends I think we are going to reach that goal and have some pretty cool warm home made hats to give away. 
I've also been working on my my Inspirational Quote Card Deck and will get that out in the mail in a few days.

Now if I could only wake up Mother Nature so she can turn on the Spring weather here ! So anxious to get out in the warm sun and play in the dirt  ♥♥♥♥♥

  7. wowee for waiting for your muse you sure are creative! i love the apron. i was just saying "I need an apron for my art" but I'm in Canada so the shipping would be too much - and I have lots of yarn to donate too. Drat! I love what you are doing. What are your inspiration cards for? That part I didn't catch onto. I love the colors of them. I know in the Artful Gathering there will be a deck created but I don't think that is yours. Looking forward to hearing what you are up to with the cards. Happy PPF. Lovies, Samara.
