My DD is having fun during spring break drawing and sketching. Horses, castles, flowers and such. She loves to draw, paint and do anything creative. Hopefully there are some art classes in the area for her to take this summer. I think she'd love it. DS had way too much fun coloring his bedroom walls with marker, black - permanent marker, the other day. Such fun having creative kids. Now I get to paint the bedroom. Maybe I'll do part of it in the Chalkboard Paint.
I just picked up Tim Holtz's new book - "A Compendium of Curiosities". Love it!! Can't wait to try some of the techniques in it. What fun things in there to try and do. I also picked up Somerset Memories Spring 2010 magazine today too. Lovely stuff in there too. Gosh I'm going to be busy this weekend catching some creative ideas. I also found a book I'm dying to pick up - "Playing with Books" by Jason Thompson. Amazing things in there that have me just itching to get creative. Fun, fun stuff.
Having a great time at work. Love the people, love the place, love what I do. And I have an extra bonus that just makes me happy. I spent most of my childhood not too far from where I work. I remember spending time among the shops and such at the time. I also remember seeing things looking run-down, beat-up and depressed. We moved for my dad's job but a majority of our family remained in the area so I saw it on a regular basis. It makes my day to see the area coming back, to see new shops and businesses, including where I work. It is exciting and thrilling to be around as all this happens, to maybe add just a little something to help.
