Every once in a while Olivia and I will take an internet/computer break. Here we are, school starting in ten days, and it seems like the perfect time. We still have many fun things to cross off our summer list, not to mention the fact that the weather here has been wonderful for night walking and star gazing, much too gorgeous to spend in front of a screen of any kind. I've promised her many, many games of outdoor UNO and there are countless other things I feel we must do now, and I write "now" because it just seems like we are transitioning into a some kind of un-name-able, different phase, now because my little girl starts MIDDLE SCHOOL in less than two weeks (!), dance classes will be starting back. Life is going to get busy.
So, here's my plan for the next few days:
PLAY. Play in art room. Play in art journals. Play more with painting on old photographs. Have fun. No worries about having finished pieces. (although i do have some finished pieces to share just as soon as i manage to take a decent shot of them...)
Make more foam stamps using technique learned in LK Ludwig's class (wonderful, inspiring!) a few years ago.
Spend time lovin' on those I love. Taking LONG walks, holding hands. Star-gazing. Reading on blankets. Getting my hands in some nature! (This heat has kept me inside way too much.) Do some treasure-hunting. Letter-writing. Fiction-writing. Stitching. LOTS of stitching. Knitting (just learning).
See you soon...
