It's SHOVEL Time
Getting ready for my annual show at the Botanical Gardens is always a blessing and a battle. It comes during the hottest time ~ or rather I need to be working thru the summer in the heat to prepare for it. It's been difficult getting motivated to really get in gear with our high temps this year. I dream up tons of ideas and fill my "little book" with them and then I just feel overwhelmed and do nothing. Does your mind ever get so muddy that you are just stagnate?? I feel pulled in many different directions lately and none of them the direction I need to go.
I've been putting off doing my shovels for way too long and now with my show only a couple weeks away, the realization of just how very few shovels I have finally registered - these were what started my journey down this ART road six years ago ~ they are kinda my signature show piece so I couldn't show up without any so, here's a few I've carved out. Still gotta cut and weld leaves and vines and attach.
As an experiment I cut out a few little vegetable plant markers. Don't know how they'll do and really didn't do a lot, but I thought for those that have a little veggie garden they'd be fun. What do you think? Are they worth doing? They haven't rusted yet and would certainly be better rusty...plus these are kinda hard to see. There's a Tomato, onion, bell pepper, carrot, green bean & radish.
