what's in a name?

i've been visiting hundreds of blogs since the start of owoh
and have noticed many people wondering about
how their blog got it's name
most of my regular bloggers are friends ,
so they know the answer or i've never asked
my website is all pulped out
i've always loved paper and started making
papier mache in the early '90's
i was making a lot of home decor items and
was enjoying it very much
i made my own pulp, sculpted each item, added wire ,
painted or decoupage
by '96 i was attending a huge craft show
and needed to make a ton
so i invited all my girlfriends to my house for a "margarita" party
and asked them each to bring a blender
well before you knew it, drinks and pulp where flying everywhere
at the end of the nite i was taking a break
and one of my friends said
"hey, get back to work" and i replied "i'm all pulped out"
and she said "that's it! that's your name!"
since then my art has evolved , working on collage,
mixed media ,assemblage and jewelry
i've taken many classes, here in toronto, at
so when i started my blog i called it
the evolution of nancy
lately i've been concentrating on my digital work and encaustic
i promised on my owoh giveaway that i would make 150 art cards
and something special for all my followers
well, out came the paper and i started to collage again
i'm so happy to be knee deep in paper and covered with glue!
the above is one of a series called "countries roads"

Very cool art card. I think that naming blogs is a really interesting insight into people and love hearing how name came about. I think we all change direction as we blog - it's the natural path of art.
