I've been super busy over these last couple weeks. I'll have some catching up to do with my daily creating, but to be honest I have been sewing or crafting every day for a couple of craft shows. I plan to get back on track with the book real soon.
Last Friday I was in Art From The Heart. It was so much fun to be a part of it. My son had a blast mingling with the people there. He took along his flip books he made of stick men and walked around wearing a hand written sign asking people to ask him about them. He got lots of compliments on them. They're great.
This Sunday, Feb 20th I will be in the Flea Market Frenzy. I'm just doing some last minute things for this.
There are a couple craft shows I will be submitting applications to as well. One of which is an art fair. So I plan on making a couple small paintings to enter along with my aprons and bags. Really I think this art fair is out of my league. I just hope the paintings turn out, especially since I have no idea of what to paint. I feel like this is the year to enter.
Here's the thing...ever since I was a kid I had dreams of being in this particular art fair as well as one other pretty big one. So there's no harm in entering. If I don't make it then that's just that much less I have to sew and craft and paint. Right?!
Time to get some things done before the day is over.

Work with things you find in your car.
I'm trying to save the pop can pull tabs to make myself a small bag. I had a few in my car and thought I'd try to crochet with them. Here is the result.
By the way, the crochet hook I used was also in my car.
