Art & About

Saturday morning I read my girlfriends blog post titled "Dark & Dreary", it was early so I decided to call her later. In the meantime I had some crafty inspiration. I got out my Big Shot and embossed some ghosts I had left from last year and make one Halloween card for my grandson and I had a great idea for my granddaughter's card. Finally I called 'Mrs "Dark & Dreary"..........several phone calls later she picked me up for a day of bumming (we are darn good at it too!!!). I wasn't really too keen on the idea, as I was feeling creative, but I thought "it's more important to spend time with my bff and the cards and housework will still be here". The plan she had fell through so I pulled out my postcard about the art tour going on that day and we were off!. We visited 7 different artists......varying from water color, sculpture, jewelry, Raku, recycled, etc. It was awesome!!!! There was not time for lunch, not even McDonald's drive through, so we lunched on the treats some of the artists put out. These people are so talented, I loved the art and would love to create some myself...but when I do it I think it looks like a 3 year old made it. Maybe that is why I want to try making stone sculptures with my 4 & 5 year old grandsons. One of them does enjoy art also. In fact he opted to paint our pumpkins and not carve them. That works for me.
If there is a moral to the story it might be: Life is short, spending time with people is more important that spending time with things.
Have a great week!!!!!
