My Block Swap Trade and "The Slump" !!

I just finished my Block Swap!! Elizabeth is my partner this month, I hope she likes her new block!!
You gotta love Kaffe Fasset fabric!! I sure do :)

Well, I have gotten emails from some of my blog friends wondering where I was??? I have a confession I need to make.....I am in an art slump!! There I said it...but it is the truth. I made the above block because I knew I needed to. I made a commitment to Elizabeth and I wanted to keep it. But, it was very hard to just sit and make something. So, in my wondering WHY I am having this slump....I think I have come to the reason.

I love all kinds of art, quilting, mixed media, and art journaling. I have been doing a ton of quilting and very little anything else....so I decided I REALLY need to do some art journaling and mixed media stuff too!!! I am missing that side of my art. So, I am going to keep up with my UFO quilt list...but I am really getting more paper art into my life. I have been super inspired by all the Pinterest hopping I have been doing!! I am so ready to get my fingers sticky and paint stained, that I can hardly think straight.  :):)   So, I said all this in the hopes that you   (my blog friends) will like my paper art side of me as much as you like my quilting side :):) I have thoroughly enjoyed making all my new friends...and I guess I am a little bit fearful that if I start showing you my paper art you might not like my blog any more!... I know, I know.... I am being silly.....sigh......I am just letting you know what is rolling around in my head!

I will keep quilting my UFO's and show you my progress, my quiltie trades, and showing you my art journals. I hope you will like what you see!! Many thanks to all of you for your friendship!!!

Hi Sandie - I don't think you are being silly at all ! I know exactly where you are coming from. Sometimes it's good to go away and do something completely different. I for one look forward to seeing your paper art.
Keep up the good work and don't stop blogging!!! xx

Your block is beautiful and your art work will also be embraced by we quilting folk! You're so fortunate to be able to take your art from one medium to another. So go girl! We will love to see it and read about it.

Are paper art and quilting all that different? Aside from the obvious that is. It is all color and texture and shapes.......it is all good!

I feel our blogs should be all about us....what we like and even don't like...what we enjoy doing. Be happy in what you are doing!

I love this block. And yes I really understand about being creative in different aspects of art. It's stifling to only do quilting. When I first started coming to your blog you were posting paper arts so that certainly won't keep me away. :)
