I have been so so so incredibly busy. I know, I say that a lot but it is always true. I live a crazy, fun life. But this week is especially busy and soon I will have a very special announcement to explain why. I'm hoping by this weekend I can tell you what I've been up to... you will never-ever guess.
But in the meantime, I thought I 'd share some Everyday Art from my phone. Starting from the top, left to right:
1) I had to take a picture of this because my brother's name is Eddie, which is a really uncommon name, and he is an uncle. Then when I checked out, guess what the checker's name was? Eddie! It was weird.
2) This is my finished canvas from Brave Girls Art A La Carte class called "I have An Idea." It's a really easy project, but you learn some interesting techniques with paint and other media. I love how it turned out and it only took about 3 days, including drying time.
3) It's Fall and that means pomegranate season. And I happen to work for an "ag" business. And this pomegranate was brought back all the way from a huge pomegranate farm in Southern CA. And I happen to be an expert at opening pomegranates because we grew them on our farm. And I ate the whole thing. And it was yummy.
4) Did you know Jujube's are a real food and not just the multi-colored candies that you buy at the movie theater and they are so sticky and chewy that they can lift out your fillings? Ok smartypants, I didn't know! But they had tubs of them at Whole Foods last week and I was sooo tempted to buy them just to see what I could do with them. But I knew it was going to be a busy week so I passed. Maybe they will be there again next week. I still don't know what they are exactly... a nut? A fruit? A vegetable?
Don't be so busy that you forget to stop and wonder at the little things!
