Hello everyone! I hope this post finds you in good health and a happy mood!
We had another art journal jam yesterday and what fun we had! What a fabulous group of women we have attending! Maybe next time we’ll have a guy join us – there was a young fellow who looked on with curiosity while we were creating so he said he might come along next month.
Here are the ladies hard at PLAY! If you look closely you can see a couple of balls of yarn – one woman was crocheting and another one knitting. One attendee – Debbie was unravelling a mess of yarn for Joanne who was knitting a cap for homeless folks in Vancouver. Most people were working on Art Journal pages. The art journal jams have evolved into an electric joyful atmosphere where creative community flourishes. It’s been so wonderful to watch friendships blossoming, sharing of ideas, swaps and kind acts occurring.
Snow at the magic cottage
We don’t usually get much snow in my neck of the woods – Surrey, B.C. so when we do get it – there’s lots of excitement! Here’s a shot of the dragonfly laden down with snow. I can tell that we will need to revamp him again this summer!
The Backyard – the Creative Juice sign and guardian crow covered in snow!
I thought this little birdhouse with a poof of snow on it looked like a Marie Antoinette birdhouse no?
I snapped this little selfie with my i-pad – can you say awkward? Since Mr. G wasn’t around to take my photo i did it myself holding the i-pad out at arms length . I needed MUCH longer arms!
I had a car decal made to promote my business and help you get your business mojo back. Looks pretty doesn’t it? It’s perforated with holes so you can see the pretty image and yet still see through the window – in theory that is. Unfortunately because of the angle of my back window I am unable to see through the window – well i can see but it’s like looking through fog. So I am going to have to get it removed . Hopefully we can come up with another solution!
I have been busy taking Mindy Lacefield’s online class called “Neat Stuff” – a fun mixed media class on capturing the stuff of our youth that made us happy. I’ll let you see what I come up with next week.
