This blog started with small daily paintings then changed to a more personal sharing of projects, events and photos. Enjoy!

I thought I had taken a picture of this portrait, and I did!, but must have missed it when posting yesterday--I love it--my granddaughter drew one of a mom and her baby on her hip. She was our neighbor at the fair--the mother loved her portrait too!

The Children's Crafts Fair 2011

It's kind of funny to see all that we've been working on, all that was recently spread from one side of our living room to the other, in a compact little pile ready to be transported.

Behind the scenes--the backs of the action figures and of course duck tape and safety pins.

For $1.50 you could have your portrait drawn and framed by my granddaughter--great deal!!

I'm not too sure this little guy liked his portrait, but he was a good sport about it.

It only lasted two hours, we sold most of what we made except for the action figures--the fair goers missed out on the genius of those action finger figures--but, two cool skate boarding girls bought a couple of sets--they were seen later skating down the side walk with their newly purchased figures in their back pockets.

We're about ready for the craft fair tomorrow! The action figure finger puppets are at attention.
I hope to be able to take a few pictures of the event.

My granddaughter and I have been busy preparing for the children's craft fair--held on July 30th, 10:30am to about noon, at the Los Osos Library (for those of you who are in the area) Crafts for pennies or quarters, but very very affordable, ridiculously affordable for the amount of work involved--I've been my granddaughter's taskmaster, but I admit to doing quite a bit of the menial work--she is the artistic director. We'll be selling paper twirlies, magic elastic button strings, pinwheels, pipe cleaner dolls and a few other crafts. I'll post more about this with more pictures of the other crafts.


Try this for a little summertime fun. Lie down without touching the ground!
