Just Moving My Hands

The holidays have sapped my
creative juice.  Like many of
us too much to do, so little time.

Today I made time just to move
my hands, put together a couple
of cards to send off and enjoy
the making.

Vintage ad, scrapbook scrap, watercolor
paper, distress ink, glimmer mist and a tiny
bit of stitch.

Peacock photo I took, printed on acetate,
over some Japanese lettering/stamp paper
on watercolor with glimmer mist.

Just moving my hands.

Happy Friday.


  1. they are beautiful, dear corrine, each in its own way-very different,- but beautiful.Time flyes and ,yes, so much to be done.
    Hugs and love, Dorthe

  2. You move my mind! Good thing you have that juice squirreled away all over the place like some Costco store. I know what you mean though. I'm taking a bit of a break myself, turning to cookie baking and wrapping presents.
    Received your lovely card with a personalized verse no less!
    xoxo Kim

  3. Corrine these cards are both different but both beautiful! A slow hand is so much better than a fast one at this time of year!
    Look after yourself and keep some energy for yourself too!
    Love and hugs,

  4. Dear Corrine your cards are so beautifully made, yes it is a busy time right now - but also a wonderful time, I love Christmas, have a nice Christmas time my friend.
    Hugs Anni

  5. Corrine, I too suffer from the lack of energy at this time of year. I spent a recent evening just looking at threads and fabric with the intention of making something. At the end of the evening I put them away again. Nothing achieved - well nothing tangible but it was relaxing!

    I love the cards you have made. Very special individual cards.

  6. Lovely lovely cards sweet I know its a crazy time,but visit me when you get a chance,I have something to say to you!! Hugs,Cat
