Sunday Sunday...

You wouldn't know it by the weather but all other indications say that fall is here. The last of the kids will be back in school soon; all the stores have back to school sales going on, school supplies are in the seasonal section of many stores. It's a time of change and fresh starts. Even though I've been out of school for years I still get anxious this time of year, I like I should be doing something, getting ready for something. I still miss the unblemished surface of new notebooks, of fresh pens and newly sharpened pencils. Which is the only thing about school I miss the rest of it was just the kind of hell that only freaks without a buffer crowd of fellow freaks can know. And yet I’m still nostalgic, still yearning for that chance at a fresh start.

In the meantime I’ve been keeping myself busy trying (without success) to forget certain life things. I’ve made a couple of new pieces and relisted some older pieces that I made some changes to. One of the new pieces is a coffin shadow box called Monsters in Love. I wanted to do something for Mary Shelley’s birthday so I did a piece using a quote from Frankenstein and a picture from the movie of Frankenstein and his bride. I mixed in a lot of nuts and bolts and some washers. I’m happy with the way it turned out. Here’s a pic:

I also made a new mini shrine. This one is about the Arachnid Goddess she who both creates and destroys she is the weaver and mistress of all our fates:
I went to a new thrift store today. I found some small ceramic dolls that I can do something with, a rather rustic compartment shadow box and a small mantle clock that I have a new idea for. I also found a book by Clarice Lispector, The Passion According to G.H. I’m excited I’ve wanted to read her work for a long time and haven’t gotten my hands on any of her books. Thankfully I always have reading and creating to do!
