Long Time, No Post

School has started and life has once again become hectic. Oh for those long sweet summer days. I love teaching, I really do, but I do enjoy my summer vacation.

In addition to being busy with school stuff, I've been busy with social stuff too. It has left little time to pursue creative endeavors. It's a little frustrating because I've got so many projects in my head that I want to give birth to. I've promised myself one art swap per month, however. The only one I'm managing to complete is the tip-in swap.

This month's theme was "circus" which was perfect. A few months back, Paula's Kit Club had a circus theme, so I had all the perfect fixings for this swap. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. The piece has a bit of bulk to it, so the scans are not terribly crisp.

The following two scans are from a cigar box purse I made with the same kit. I made this piece a while back however. Fun theme.
