Works in Progress

As always I have a lot of ideas and unfinished projects laying around. Sometimes the projects meld together. I recently bought a new counter -height pub table that works out to be the best surface to work on ever! Easy on the neck and you can lay everything out in a mess and play. So much better than before ( meaning the floor). I have so much ephemera and collected stuff over the years I am compelled to '"clean up" by creating something with it. Fabric, beads, trim, bottle caps, old hardware -you name it I have claimed it. That's why I named my blog "Ravenpainting" because of all the shiny things and little objects I have cached away in my nest (as Ravens do). When all is laid out the fun begins and the finished project may turn out to be very different from what was originally "planned". I alway tell friends who want to do any form of art projects- keep everything! Ticket stubbs, package labels, stamps, old clothes ( if the fabric is interesting) , things you may not see a use for now but you will later!


  1. Hi Lori!
    Your table looks fun! Lots of exciting things on there to play with!

  2. I like seeing your space. I am gathering ideas for storage :)
