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

Jumping Back a Month

We'll just pretend it's August---I almost forgot to post about this year's Children's Craft Fair!  Slap my hand!
I'm very proud of my granddaughter (on the right) and her friend's accomplishments in bringing this year's booth to fruition!  Maybe even prouder than all the previous years---I've talked in the past how I tend to get involved a little too much?--you might remember, here, here, here  here and here.  Phew!
This year everything was her's and her friend's idea--they got together for many weeks prior to the fair to cook their cupcakes and freeze them, make the frosting and even cleaned and washed dishes--they thought out all the details and then had a great day frosting and selling their fabulous mini cupcakes!

Four minis fit in a hand folded origami box with lid.

Awesome job!!!

A Garden Mobile

A plant's eye view

I've hung this inside my netted and above-ground garden (just planted with winter vegetable seeds), because the net doesn't keep out the birds, but maybe a mobile with shiny can tops will do the trick?

It was fun to make a mobile again, but tough to take a good picture of one!
