I’m dragging butt today. We had heavy storms yesterday—no tornados here—however, they kept us inside, which, given the fact we’re eight people stuck together, no end in sight, gets grandma a little persnickety. Yeah, I was grumpy yesterday.
So, I kept to myself. Finished one set of edits. And I found an online FREE abstract art collage class from one of my newly fave abstract artists—Laura Horn. So, if anyone wants a fun class that doesn’t really require you to have a ton of artistic skill—do this one! Here’s the link: Laura Horn website
I found her on Pinterest when I was looking for art I could try to duplicate, because I’m learning and, when you’re learning, you test out different styles, color palettes, mediums, until you find something you really enjoy and make it your own. Kind of like writing, huh?
Have you ever seen my Pinterest page? I have tons of boards. Tons of followers. My interests range from all kinds of arts and crafts things, books, etc. So, if you’re looking for something else to eat up an afternoon (remember, we’re in this for the long haul), head on over and check it out: My Pinterest page
So, have I helped you figure out what to do for a while? No? How about you tell me what new thing you want to try while you’re hiding from the Corona bug!

I can’t really say I have a ‘new’ thing I want to try, but more a continuation. I bit ago I started playing with crocheting purses in the round. Saw a couple of cool techniques I wanted to try and thought they would be amazing as purses. So far they do look awesome but . . . Isn’t there always a but? They would benefit from a lining before I assemble them fully. So the ‘new’ thing is to figure out how to line them to my particulers and finish them off. Ideas have been percolating and it is almost time. Should be fun.
I have a project I’ve been slowly picking away at for a while. I’m learning to organize my various spaces. It’s a daunting task but now I have more time to work on it.
I’ve wanted to try crocheting purses and totes! But I dread the making the liner part!
Jennifer! Are you doing the Marie Kondo thing? I’d never make it. Too much of a hoarder at heart!
