There have been some creative spurts during this though, which has been a serious relief. I tend to go a bit stir crazy if I don't make anything for a while. I've started sculpting very first larger scale piece; a short and round Santa Clause, who will be dressed in forest green. I've also made a few spoon wands. Here's one of them, I call it the Intuition Wand, since I based it around the correspondences of the colour purple and the Third Eye chakra:

On a completely different note, did anyone manage to get outside and have clear skies for the Leonid meteor shower? My lovely and I bundled up, dragged some blankets outside and snuggled under the stars, but the clouds came rolling in and we weren't able to see any stars at all after a while. I'm happy to report though, that we did manage to see two shooting stars before the clouds rained on our parade. That being said, it was still a wonderfully romantic experience, laying outside at the wee hours sandwiched between blankets and holding hands gazing at the stars and trying to locate constellations.
For the record, my constellation recognition has gone to pot. I can only find Orion and that one's easy to find. *sigh* I miss living in the woods.
