Modern Art in our Backyard

My Latest Art Project
Looks a little like a Calder, doesn't it?  Actually it is the collapse of our backyard canopy that we had put up for my workshop last Friday.  A little rain and wind and this is what you get.  You can do this too.

I am taking advantage of a little quiet time to finish packing up things for this week's bookbinding workshops.  My husband and our son have taken all the kids to the KOA for a camping weekend.  Friday night everyone was here and things got a little crazy - one over-turned coffee table, one lost cat who turned out not to be lost at all (the kids actually went around the neighborhood gathering up cats that looked like ours), one little hand through a pane of glass in the porch door  -  which thankfully did surprisingly little damage   -  to the hand, that is.  Of course it totaled the window pane, but who cares.  So, yeah, I'm taking advantage of this quiet time.  Also looking forward to their return.  Silly me.

We can "stand" a lot of things when having the Grandchildren visit :-)
Would love to be in the BkBinding Class just for fun--even tho' I've made 3 more books on my own--such a fun Class! You & Cathy do a fine job. I'm so tempted to make another one even tho' I don't need it yet...but you can't have too many journals---right???

It is wonderful having the kids around!!!!

You're right - you can never have too many journals.
