My Play Date...

I didn't think it would be this long between posts. And I still don't have a lot of art to show you but I did have an art play date today. Two of my friends from the senior center came over and we spent the day playing and making ATCs...

Juanita, Me, and Jeanette
Jeanette and I did not plan to wear matching shirts 
but I guess we really are on the same wave length.

Look at that mess on the work table!
And those smiles...
We had so much fun that we decided to make this a weekly thing.

Juanita made a beautiful greeting card but I didn't get a photo of it. We were too busy talking and laughing. I'm so happy to have found these two artistic friends who live close by. I've always been so envious of everyone who had art play dates because I didn't know anyone around here that did art. But now I do!

I promise there will be some art to show you in the next day or so. 
I'm inspired by these two friends!

    1. Lisa, for years I'd see other bloggers write about their play dates and I was so envious. And just when I thought I'd never find art friends around here, I met two. Maybe you will, too.

  10. Oh Janet how exciting for you!! Looks like they have a lot of talent too...Looks like Juanita's shirt blends very nicely with the two purple/magenta shirts!! If I was there I would be matching Jeanette because that's the color I always wear!! I even bought a dark purple purse the other day...for my quilted jacket in that color!!

      That magenta color is one of my favorites to wear, too.

  18. This looks like SO MUCH FUN, Janet! If you girls make it a weekly thing, you are going to be rolling in art. I sure would like to be able to do something like that around here. And it looks like you have a really nice space to work in, too.
