Earth Day

Jodie and I met via Skype for a crafternoon. Since it's Earth Day, we decided to craft with recycled materials. Jodie used cardboard and bottle caps for her project.

I decided to start our Mystery Box #4 project ... a Christmas project. There were quite a number of recycled items in that box. I added a few more. So far, the recycled items I'm using are:

  • Oatmeal box
  • Peanuts can
  • Batting bought at a thrift store
  • Fabric from a child's dress
  • Nylon stocking
  • Styrofoam ball (not recycled, but old)

It looks like this project will take several days to complete, but I feel good about today's start.

"What is it?" you ask?

"Shhhh! It's a secret!"

Coloring Meditation

Jeanne stopped by to spend some time in the Studio with me. Today, we decided to color. Julie gave Jeanne a beautiful mandala coloring book for Christmas. Jeanne found a mandala with hearts for me to color. I used vibrant colors.

Jeanne chose a more pastel colorway.

While we colored, we chatted via Skype with Jodie. A lovely crafternoon was had by all.
