What a week it’s been. First off, I’ve been staying at my sister’s house this week, because they’re doing asphalt reconstruction where I live. It’s just easier than trying to find parking elsewhere.
So! Monday, I started the day off super early and went to my favorite coffeeshop, Yellow Mug. I was there at like 7 a.m., much before work, because the construction started at that time and I needed to head out of my neighborhood.
It was nice being out and about so early. Everything is so still. I read quite a bit before work while I was there…I have BEEN READING A LOT…
Hey, did you notice that piece of TAPE holding together a torn edge on the book cover, pictured above? The book looked pristinely new not too long ago, and I really tried to keep it looking nice and neat. I keep it in my purse so it gets nudged around a lot, I’ve accidentally slept on it (more than once), and my sister’s cat tried to eat it. All in all, a few dirt smudges and a slightly torn edge isn’t all that bad considering it survived all of that.
My sister’s house is quite picturesque! I’ve enjoyed staying here, and it’s felt like a little vacation in a sense – not being at my own place, not doing my usual routine (aside from work), having a different view and what not…
Tonight was a special night because I displayed some of my art at Art Hop! I’ve been looking forward to it because I bought frames for my illustrations, and a new canvas print.
This was my outfit for the day! A pink and blue floral ensemble.
It was a hot summer evening at Art Hop, but luckily I had some shade. The new frames totally matched my tablecloth!!!
I love Art Hop; I love displaying my own work and seeing the work of others. Self-expression has always been and will always be my loyal companion in life, and I love to see how others choose to express themselves creatively. ♥
I had two customers: both little girls, around 8 years old. They had their own booth! We traded art; they each took one of my art pieces, and I took one of theirs. This was their art I brought home:
An ice cream cone and a dropped ice cream cone. This is a great two-piece art set and in all actuality, represents me quite well because I drop things all the time, and I love ice cream. PERFECT!!!!
I love that the two little girls were so artistic and involved at such a young age! I hope they never lose their love for art and it continues on throughout their lives.
Another reason I love displaying at Art Hop? It keeps me growing artistically.
I always think when I’m out there, as I sit at my display table, “What should I create next? What do I want to bring to life from the depths of my imagination?”
The great thing about imagination, is that it’s endless. ♥
