Stopped in at Main Street Art today and bought myself a great fun pendant made with a vintage stamp. You know I love all things postal, so it was a fun present for myself.
I am up to Chapter 11 of The Artist's Way, by Julia Cameron, which is a book about how to re-stoke your creative furnace. My latest artist projects have been family heirloom scrapbooking, and as you know cards and postcards made with old family photos: part of my "What to do with your family history" efforts. How can we interest others in what we find fascinating, the lives of those who came before us.
Anyhow, Diane has Paint & Sip Parties: Birthday parties, Girl's Night Out, Bachelorette Parties, Baby Showers, Team Building, You name the Occasion = $30 per painter. There are kids parties too, for $20 per painter. Only 6 people needed for a party, so if you have always wanted to give it a try, here's the place, and this is the time! Go for it!
