Happy "Chocolate is Half-Off!" Day!
Have you heard about 500 Angels? http://angels500.com/ It is based out of New Orleans and its been a call to artists for 500 Angels for 500 cancer patients. It sounds like they will also do a book of the angels and sell the book also for funds for the cancer program there. Since angels are some of my favorite things, I decided that I would recycle a canvas I had, to do one. I finished her tonight.
My friend, Peg, who is a fish/aquarium enthusiast, found a bag of these in all different colors at a garage sale for 50c:
and brought them to me to 'do something with them'. They are braided ribbon fish! Someone put a bunch of time and effort in these. I think they are fun and clever!
Anyways, that was last Sept/October. One project or the other has been in the forefront of my head since, until this weekend, when this project finally had risen to the surface of the clutter of my mind. And here is what I came up with. I am very happy with the way it turned out and the pics just don't do it justice.
My "little sumthins" went pretty well last Friday, at the fundraiser. I have only 4 left.
The summer calendar has a lot of artsy things starting to vie for position. At least one per month so far. Some are things I will go to, and I may get in to a couple of the exhibitions. So you need to stay tuned! for the fun ahead!
