During the recent heat wave I was holed up in my work room pounding on the computer keys. Mostly from frustration at how slow the hard drive was to upload the finished product, but it was worth it. Every drop of sweat that accumulated behind my knees, and each one dripping off of my nose contributed to the finished card...
OK, it wasn’t that melodramatic, but I wanted you to think that I was working really hard at these cards. And I was, having a creative streak is really good, it forces you to concentrate, and create. You end up feeling really blissed out by all that energy. Kind of like a runner feels after a good run, well, I am assuming that, since I don’t run. But I have seen Gar’s face after, the endorphins rushing about, and he always looks happy. This is my kind of marathon.
Just before I dashed off to work at the last minute yesterday the door bell rang, and there were my finished cards. Now it was a hard split second decision, stay and take a really quick peak at them, and then rush to work, sliding under the wire which I never do. Or leave them until I finished a full 8 hours of work, not knowing what they looked like, or if they had turned out as well as I hoped. Wondering what they looked like, and how they would reflect all the work I had done.
I peeked, and was I glad that I did. I was so excited to see them I more or less floated all day at work. They look great, and I am very happy to have taken the giant step of having them printed locally. Since my shoulder [rotator cuff tendonitis of all things] problems, making them from scratch has been difficult and I was down to limited inventory.
So now I have 20 images in my Muddy Boot Dreams art cards line, and more to come. There is a wedding card, a baby card, a happy birthday card, and a few others that are new. I kept some of the more popular older images, some are favorites of mine.
