by far the "raddest" of all the sculptures was this thing of beauty. the base is a plastic hobby horse, cut up the back, wheel inserted, egg cartons to give the look of scales, "flames" coming out of it's nose, hoses everywhere, and a cabbage patch kid on top with nails for hair. everything was then spray painted green. BTW-- the team who made this was last years champion!! we didn't stay long enough to see who won, but seriously........

everyone knows that my favorite place to shop is the Goodwill. i am so amazed at what i can find there. like this: it is a paper jewelry kit. they give you certain glues to make the paper stiff, include findings to make earrings or necklace, you can paint it, and voila', paper jewelry!! can't wait to try it. i will post pics as soon as i get on this project.

i found a project in one of my crafty library books, and did my best to follow the directions (not my strong suit). i shaped wire into a heart, wired up some beads, and threaded them on. pic is a little blurry, but i think it turned out ok. not what i expected, but a woman i took a class with once said "if it doesn't turn out the exact way you want, it just means it's 'organic'."
this will most likely become a necklace, ornament, adornment for a dog sled, etc.
went down to the Art in The Pearl today, and saw some pretty cool stuff. but this, by far, was THE BEST. seems a non profit donated this car for all the kids to paint up, and express their inner artist. it had been painted on for the entire weekend by all the little ones. i don't know the particulars, but i am sure it will be auctioned off for the cancer non profit. the kids were going crazy!!! for me, it was really inspiring to see how they painted the tires, the back and how some just decided to splatter paint on the fender!!
should give you a smile!!! sure did for me!!
