A slight distraction from my previously planned art projects.
The mixed media art group that I belong to on-line is having a fabric postcard swap during the month of August. I was going to get to them, but once I started receiving some.....the pressure was on. So I used that as incentive to get going on them. They are fun to make. Mini pieces of art. I started looking through my fabric pile...which as some of you know is a bit out-of-control...to see what inspired me. Once I had some fabric in mind I sat down with sharpie in hand and started sketching. Then viola I had and idea and a basic pattern. I am pleased. I added some fun thread art and some beads. It really is exciting to discover a little piece of art in your mail. A little bit of sunshine. My fourteen year old would agree!

LOVE it! So refreshing, inspiring and......let's just say I have started to work on my "Halloween" theme charms for the next charm swap with the Minnesota ladies!
Speaking of Funky I made some molds of the design tiles for the back splash I am designing....not so good. I had to trash all of the molds. Super frustrating. So I have taken a couple of days off from that project and will get back to it tomorrow. I knew my frustration would only hinder my progress. So.....I let loose with polymer clay instead.
Have a great day!

Downtown was Friday Night Live. The streets were filled with people, live musicians and entertainers......jugglers, puppet shows, numerous bands, local restaurants selling food. We were in a long line waiting for none other...ice cream!
Finally we made our way back to our seats. Listened to more live bands and waited for the show.
