Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!
I love to do art with children because it frees you up...you aren't doing a piece to please someone....just yourself....I find that so relaxing....not performing.
Well, a nice surprise from my hubby....he has discovered detailed paper airplane building (folding and gluing)....and makes the same kind of mess that he used to complain about when I made my crafty messes...but I have welcomed his company at the table! The paper airplanes come on a downloaded sheet of card stock from www.fiddlersgreen.net.....they are very pretty and very inexpensive....a great project for kids age 6 to 100 years old! They would even be pretty framed in a man or boy's or girl's room! Like for you, ELI !!! ...and Olivia, too. Check them out!
His First Love...Airplanes! ...this is Tito and Peck!
I am also adding the diamond shapes that Mary showed us how to do. Now they decorate the children's lockers in the messy art room.
The colors are so pretty and cheerful, it will light the way!! I had such a hard time coordinating the patterns and colors....I finally just grabbed a circle to sew and kept going. I am thinking anything would work I WOULD LOVE to cut out my painted flowers and zinnias and do a lantern with just leaves and those bright flowers!! Enjoy!!
