A Relaxing Weekend and some Art.
My "new" kitchen shelf. My grandpa made this, probably 20 years ago. This is the third time I've painted it.
I got a phone call yesterday from a friend. Her pet
rat had died and she wanted to bury her here in our
garden. We lit a candle and scattered some rose petals
on the grave.
One of our little garden patches. So far, we have
tomato plants and watermelon!
Art doll I made yesterday and today. It's made from water bottles, corks, a detergent
lid, clay face, wire, tape, bits of fabric scraps and the legs from a doll I made and took
apart several months ago. The arms have already been recycled into spirit dolls but the
legs were just hanging out in the cabinet.
We've had a pretty quiet weekend. Went to the community market yesterday and left with about 10 people wanting to participate in a SoulCollage workshop in August, re-made a
connection with a therapist who came to one of my workshops and wants me to come to his
practice and do SoulCollage with his patients and maybe some art journaling, too. Also
connected with the sweet man who put together a raffle to benefit Healing Through Creativity.
Saw so many friends and made a couple of new ones. One guy I recognized from someone's
birthday party pics on facebook! She had just posted them that morning so when I saw him,
I recognized him immediately and told him. He turned out to be a sweetheart and wants to
attend one my workshops. He's doing an aromatherapy workshop in June that I may attend.
I love my neighborhood!
We weeded another little patch for gardening yesterday. Patrick grilled and we watched a movie.
Today he's writing and I'm vegging in front of flickr.
A perfect weekend. Hope yours has been!
