July Contest Winner! Woo hoo!

We have a winner for the July Contest!  Hooray!  Congratulations Maxine Finch!  We had 100 entries – i use the Random Number generator to choose a name fair and square.  Maxine happens to live in my neighbourhood which means I will save 10 dollars in shipping Smile.maxine

Thank you so very much to everyone who entered the contest.  I so enjoyed your comments about communal art projects like the GIANT pinecone 5 foot wreath created by a group of nurses to grace a hospital wall, the communal knitting projects for charity, the mini indoor golf creative set up for kids, the round robin art journals and ATC projects, simply creating in community around a table, the quilts, the prayer flags, the communal online classes etc.  I hope my question to you encourages you to make something in community.

By the way – I am beginning to get a bumper crop of zucchinis so Maxine will be taking away a zucchini along with her winnings Smile. Food for the soul and body – ya gotta love it!

Wear safety goggles

A few of you mentioned that it’s important to wear safety googles while drilling holes (this is regarding the Silverware Chandelier video). You’re right – both my sister Linda and Mr. G didn’t wear safety goggles.  I know Mr. G rarely wears them and i continually harp on him to do so.  If i were drilling holes i would definitely wear them. So kids – don’t try this at home without goggles!

The Teens Workshop

I enjoyed teaching the Teens Surpass Workshop – what a great, creative group of offbeat kids. We created painted journals which we later added images, words and ephemera to.  I noticed the boys in the group were not so interested in adding ephemera Smile to their journals.  I wonder why? We worked outside in the hot sun and i didn’t bring a hat so right now I’m suffering from a bit of heat stroke.  I’ll take it easy the rest of the day.

I hope you are having a glorious day!

Love, Violette xo

    Thanks for slipping in that bit of info about the boys Violette! I’m feeling excited and anxious about what I need to do to prepare . . . 🙂 Knowing me I’ll over-prepare for this exciting new venture!
