Art class picture...and more goodies coming soon!

I’m still working on some goodies for you...


I haven’t been able to get any postings done for a couple of days - our internet connection was down yesterday, and tonight I have big plans - my hubby and I are going shopping for Elena’s birthday.  She’ll be 5 on Sunday.  (She’s the little one with pigtails in my Peek-a-Boo Borders post.)  I still don’t know what to get her - bless her little heart, when I ask what she wants, she replies with a smile, “Just whatever people want to get me.”


I am working on a few more things to complete the Yard Sale kit - hopefully they will be posted in the next day or two.  So far, Lois is the ONLY one who found the needle in the haystack (see previous post) - I hope more of you find it soon - I know some folks who are looking hard!

Today I thought I’d share a few things with you.  First of all, my 7-year-old daughter, Lydia, has started art lessons after school once a week.  She is learning a lot, and is having so much fun exploring her passion for art.  She wants to be an art teacher someday.  Last week, she brought home her first creation from her new art class, pictured here.  If anyone has comments for her, she’d love to hear them!  :)

 
Also, over the last couple of days, I have been taught by my new friend Marie a bit about what “tags” and “tubes” are.  She is a tag artist and kindly made a couple of tags for me using some elements from the Yard Sale series.  This is the first time I’ve seen any creations made with my designs, so I’m very excited to share them with you!



I'll be back with more for you soon...
 
Hugs,
Jeanie

Lydia,
You have done a wonderful job on your drawing. I think that the detail in everything, especially the yarn balls, is excellent. Keep up the good work! The world needs more young people who want to pursue art education. Best wishes.
