Here are my final entries into the Art Every Day Month Challenge:
I present to you a happy stingray and a goofy dog... Now that December is right around the corner, what ever shall I do with my time? Just kidding! A Patten family Christmas card is already underway! Yippee!
It had so long since I hosted a craft night, so when my best friend, Angela, suggested that we have one, I was in! I did a few before Izzy was born, and, now that she's getting older and I'm getting a hang of this whole mommy thing, I couldn't wait to get them started again. A recent trip to Dillard's inspired our craft for the night -- feather headbands. The one I fancied at Dillard's was $88! Surely, we could make some equally as stylish for the fraction of the cost.
To set us up for success, I gathered the appropriate materials:
Ample Snacks and Wine
Plenty of Feathers and Headbands
There is just something to be said about gathering around a table full of craft supplies and envisioning the possibilities for creating something new and fun. Plus, it's just nice to relax, sip wine, and create with a friend.
After we made our feather headbands, we began making flower headbands and pins, too. We were on a roll!
At the end of the night, we had so many new goodies to wear. It was just what the doctor ordered.
"Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop."
Here is my twenty-fifth entry into the Art Every Day Month Challenge:
This scribble reminded me of the cover art for the musical Wicked. (If you haven't seen the musical, it's fabulous! In fact, I am taking my husband to see it in May 2012 when it comes to the DPAC. Can't wait!)
