A Challenge and some Works in Progress

I've just been so busy lately that all I seem to be doing is spinning my wheels.

I'm feeling a lot less creative these days than normal and I'm not real sure what the issue has been. I do think that I would like to try something a little bit different as in I really need to have some kind of "challenge". I would like to try having a monthly challenge where in I pick a word, description, feeling or what have you and then create it, using whatever means I'm using at the moment to create it.

What I would really like to do is create these challenges and have anyone that would care to join me participate. I would love to have participants in this and would especially love to link everyone's finished creation here.

Does anyone have any feedback on this they would like to share? I'm all for creative input here, hehe. Let's unite and get this darn creative block thrown off!

I also wanted to share this picture which shows that I have been creating...somewhat.

I'm amazed at how far one 5 pound bag of Celluclay can go. These guys were produced with what was left at the bottom of said bag. I am also amazed that I hadn't discovered the joys of paper clay before!

I'd read about this fabulous product but had never used before now and have to admit...I'm hooked!

Yes, those are yellow hearts. Totally my base color though, hehe.

I love the way the sun is shining in my back yard there through the window. It's supposed to be about 65 degrees today, yay!

wow, paperclay looks like fun, and you are making me want to look into it.
I would love to join you in some creative challenges. Keeps me going, when I feel inspired.

Love your clay creations. I always wanted to try paper clay too. I think your challenge is a great idea. Sometimes I really feel like creating but just can't come up with anything to draw.

I picked some of this up recently and I have NO CLUE how you do what you do with it! It was either way too dry or way too wet & sticky. Definitely not my medium!

Your works in progress look fabulous. The bunny especially caught my eye (and the yellow hearts!). Can't wait to see the finished products.

I would totally be up for a monthly challenge. I have toyed with the idea of doing the Inpire Me Thursday, but weekly is too stressful for me! Keep me posted~

I would love to be part of your challeng group. I need a bit of a creative boost myself and I need to get energized!

I enjoy illustrations Friday. They give you a word and you make art based on it. Then you supply them with a link and everyone can see and comment on your art.
Here is the link:
