Here are some random pictures of what I've been up to.
I made my first ATC! What's an ATC. Over on swap-bot I learned about these precious little art trading cards (ATC) that crafters and artist make to swap. They are only 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 in size and can be anything - mixed media (like mine above), paintings, collages, etc. You can read more about them here.
Also on swap-bot, I did a book list exchange project. The object was to recommend 10 of your favorite books and write a brief description. For me, reading a good book is only part of the fun, there is also something tangible about the experience and I tried to capture that with presenting my list as an art project
Yeah, I know the pictures kinda suck. I should take a photo course to find out how to eliminate glare with digital cameras.
I hit the jackpot at one of my son's basketball games. In the next hall was an old fashion flea market! There was so much stuff! I love miniatures. I bought the thimbles and some of the shoes. I may have paid 50 cents each.
No, I did not buy any these -
Oh yeah, a couple of weekends ago, I went to the Natural History Museum in New York City. My son wanted to see the lizard exhibit. I bought my Karabella silk scarf to finish and here she is stretched out with a bronze snake.
The same son who sings is also in a theatre program with his High School. They do some very amazing productions. This was a recent. Not only has my son learned all about acting with this program, he has learned about lighting, wardrobe, set design - he can now use a power drill!
