I just finished my little project for this week’s IA challenge…Whew!
When Sharon (yeah, the famous Plumrose Lane Chickie) posted the theme, “Incognito” Monday, I thought, as I usually do…I’ve got plenty of time!
So, by Wednesday, I had it in my head that the theme was “Concealed” and I remembered a box Cheryl the Healing Woman created a few weeks ago, and how much I love making boxes, and I was inspired, and I thought that I could whip up a box and paint St. Nick and prolly still have time to scare the neighbors.
Well. I didn’t exactly whip together a box. I spent some time sifting through my
junk collection and found some wonderful things that were like a giant jigsaw puzzle. I knew they fit together, but I would need to get out my saw to gently force them into my vision.
The saw, the sander (still my favorite) the screwdriver and the rolling pin. I worked on my little box for at least 27 hours…it was a journey….
If I didn’t scare my neighbors, I at least embarrassed myself…
My neighbor (the nice one) saw me outside in my night shirt and asked me if I just got up (it was noon) I told him no, I paint in this. Yesterday, I was out, on the phone, reading the meter to the Met Ed guy, and he bought over my Netflix the postman put in his box. I was wearing this…
Well, the Netflix fit perfectly in my robe pocket, and I just know he was thinking that I am the laziest person on earth.
I know I need a manicure…but a lot of people wear robes to work…priests, doctors, porn stars….
and artists who don’t turn their heat on until it snows!
I had REAL clothing on today..and I couldn’t find him anywhere….
Check back tomorrow to see the pictures of my maxter-piece…it’s way too dark now. I think I’ll get out of my robe and into some jammies….I’ve got a movie to watch…Amadeus.
