What a difference a week makes. I walked to art today and compared to last week I was freezing. Last week it was shirt sleeves and balmy … today there was a real nip in the air. But still good to be able to walk there.
I was also thrilled. The art group has an exhibition coming up at Upton House and the teacher asked if I had any work I had done previously that I would like to submit for approval. I took down two pieces from 20 years ago and they are both to be in the exhibition. I am so thrilled.
I finished my Tiger today. We were advised to avoid fur as it is more difficult. They were so right to advise that. However I wanted to try a tiger and this was the effort. Lots of errors and I now appreciate how much harder fur is – but is a learning curve – that’s why I go after all.
I have new scrapping to share today made with a new kit called Purrfect by JoCee Designs - a guest at Pickleberrypop at the moment. Kira tends to get a raw deal in scrapping terms. I have four or five times as many pages of the boy than of my little sweetheart girl. She tends to vanish into the ether when she sees a camera coming towards her, unlike her brother who, seeing a camera, poses.
However, I love her exactly the same and so it is a joy to be able to scrap her when I can.
Today I am thankful for
- art class - I really do enjoy going. The people are lovely and the art is fun
- BOTH of my fur babies - and the four who live in my heart rather than in the house now.
