Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

hi all back and sign in just these few days i seem to get a little better with the back being out and not being able to move standing. I am in a wheel chair and for most of the holidays i could not even stand that.

I have about 6 cards done and thinking of each of you -I have known from the previous project. i am trying out new ideas and thinking of new OLD subject items I want to do.
working on several techniques this is so fun some times i forget to hurt. see this is therapy. what i love about the cards is the always surprise me in the end often they turn out much better than i expect. I just let my creative juices flow.

often something that seem so easy becomes more intense trying to make it mine what i mean is the image to be what I want to convey and to make it something i drew or added to the advertisement so that it is my personal take on the subject Who ever is chosen for the first card i did out of the sears catalog will see what i am trying to say

Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

Carol, I hear you with the back pain. I have issues from years of nursing - at least I am still upright even if for short periods. I hate that you look like a mormal person and people so often don't understand how debilitating the pain can be. 5 mins standing/walking is about my limit [and I used to walk miles on the ward!].

I do agree though that art takes you to another place and it isn't until you have finished what you are doing that you realise you actually should have taken some pain relief earlier because getting up could be probelematic - have to laugh - the alternative isn't pretty!

Hope that the pain improves and we all distract you so much you don't think about it for hours on end!

Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

My Postie wondered about all my International mail and so I shared with her some of the cards I got and showed her some of mine before I mailed them.

It always amazes me that even if I think its not quite right because it hasn't come out as I saw it in my mind's eye that other people still think its good [if only they saw what was in my head !! ]

Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

glad to see we have everyone back, I missed the hullaballoo on the wknd, was at my sisters for a late christmas, and yesterday I did art all day, I have 8 cards done so far, my usual watercolor, and all treasures from my past (parent trinkets I have saved) had to downsize alot when I cleaned out my dads place when he went into care, then also my moms when she went into care. have been having fun, when DH says 'what is that for?" , his parents were not into keeping anything old, so no antiques in his family, my dad, however was all about saving everything from the past cause nothing modern ws good enough.
sorry to hear so many have been in pain or sick, have to say that since I had acupuncture for numbness inmy legs, over a year agom, that my back pain has diminished, it is time for another massage therapy treatment for headaches tho.
the joys of aging
so are there 17 of us now?

Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

Yes you can talk about the cards, just no showing.

Bonnie there are 15 and I was just waiting for Marmsk to get back in before closing it up. I just changed the number of participants to match the signed ones so we are ready to go. I still don't have the one address but will try to send out the list soon. Hopefully thirteensparrows will check in soon and send me a mailing address.

So everyone, you have 14 cards to do. Have fun.

Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

I pm'd the addresses I have. We are missing opainter's and thirteensparrows' addresses. If/when I get them, I will let you know.

Please check the list and make sure your address is correct. And if you didn't get the list, please let me know.

Thanks, Jeanne

Re: Project Discussion: From the Past

What wonderful therapy art is to all of us for one reason or another. I was thinking about the theme and thought it would be nice if we explain what the reason for picking the object or place we represent in our card, what it means to us. Could make it even more interesting. I am starting mine today as I am back in the grove after our visit to the UK.
