A lovely weekend comes to a close. I'm sitting here surrounded by collage bits, having just finished coating them in gel medium. I'll let them dry and then fuse the pieces together with a hot iron tomorrow. ... It's been nice to get back into creative mode after so many months in renovation mode. But even the moments this weekend that weren't terribly creative felt nice -- finishing the fence, doing five loads of laundry, visiting a fun estate sale, roasting a pan of yellow squash and red and orange peppers, organizing the ridiculous numbers of digital photos I have. It was all good.
