After we got home - I can't believe we spent most of the day on this project - it was time to make my beans for today's pot luck and make dinner. We listened to a disappointing Tiger game during the time spent in the truck and then finally gave up on it in the top of the ninth when things came totally apart. I am not usually a fair weather Tiger fan, but the reception in this part of the world is noisy and poor to say the least, so it wasn't difficult to turn it off.
I've been wanting to try to carve a face stamp and so following the tutorial provided by Beth that I mentioned yesterday, I began. I don't think I did a very good job of adjusting the photos in Photoshop before using the posterize filter, but I am not totally unhappy with the result and can't wait to do more carving today. I carved the left hand one first, but messed up both the eye and the mouth. Next I tried the right hand one - that is Miss P, not Amelia Earhart - for some reason the glasses on her head remind me of the aviator. Finally, I used a self portrait sketch from a long time ago to carve the one in the center.
And then I had to start stamping with them. I don't think this spread is done yet, but I cannot tell where it is going yet.
I think I mentioned some time ago that I'd ordered a new camera that I'd seen on another blog and that it was on back order. I recently received the most unusual email from Amazon telling me that they now had delivery dates for me.
We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on August 25, 2012:
"Olympus SP-810 UZ Digital Camera V103020BU000"
Estimated arrival date: October 19, 2012 - January 14, 2013
I really don't get this - how can you tell me that you have delivery dates for me and then give me a three month spread as that estimated arrival???? Does this make any sense to you?
I am planning to go to my conditioning class this morning and then have a chiropractic appointment afterward. Miss Z is due to arrive this afternoon for an overnight or two, and I have the potluck this evening. I wonder if I will get time to do a bit of carving....
What about you? What do you have planned for the day? Does it include playing? art? Do share...
