Being Crafty With My "Little One"

Haley and I made these bracelets today.   She showed me how to make them with the rubber bands that are all the "rage" right now.  She also showed my mother how to make them.  I told her that I was very proud of how patient and helpful she was with her grandmother, and she said that she was acting the way I do with my older adult students when I teach.  That made me feel like I'm being a good role model for her.  It's a nice feeling!

Art Journaling Class

We had another fun class at Scrapper's Playground tonight.  We used some beautiful watercolor paints to create 2 calendar pages and a journal page.  I felt like a little kid playing with paint, and IT WAS FUN!  I love playing with different media and learning new techniques.  The best thing about this class is that, even if I don't particularly like a technique or medium that we use, at least I've tried it and have learned something by doing it.  It's all about the experience and experimentation.  I hope you all get to make something gorgeous this weekend!

10 Summer Photos

Here's a short video I did for my pals over at Scrap 'n Yap.  They were talking about a free class at Big Picture Classes called 10 Summer Photos.  It's a short video, and it isn't the best quality, but you'll get the idea.  I hope to record a better video soon; but until then, I hope you like this one.
