The weekend flew by.
Sharing a few pictures and activities…
The Quality Assurance Guy (QAG) and I went to Free Art Friday – 4×6 canvases and paints were available for us to spark our creativity. Here’s a perfect example of the difference between us–QAG brought supplemental art supplies and worked in perfect lines and corners.
I sat with a plate of paint in front of me for about 15 minutes waiting for inspiration. I have a little aversion to arts and crafts…I blame my elementary school teacher who, when I’d say, “Mr. B. I’m done with my project,” would respond with, “A meatloaf is done. You are finished.” But Free Art Friday was a fun way to start the weekend.
I tried to convince QAG that my painting was an imperfect representation of the sun, water, and sunset of Santorini, Greece. He didn’t buy it.
Next up in December – ornament decorating. That sounds fun!!
We got Tucker and Kostas out for a lot of fresh air and I thought it seemed like a good idea to try to pick up Kostas. That didn’t last. He looks like a lamb.
I made a big pot of soup today that QAG said was “the ultimate harvest soup.” I’ll share the recipe this week.
Also wanted to share this from Lora’s blog – the Virtual Run for Hurricane Sandy Recovery. I’m on the hunt for a November run.
How was your weekend? What was the last art project you did?
I like your painting!! 🙂 Ornament decorating will be awesome!! Thanks for sharing the race. 🙂
Free Art Friday?! That sounds like an awesome way to start the weekend!!!
Sounds like a great weekend! Those puppies are too cute:)
HAHA “A meatloaf is done. You are finished.” That’s actually kinda great. 😉 how fun free art fridays must be!
Haha I’m not artistic either, but that seems fun! And Kostas does look like a little lamb!
what a cool thing to do on the weekend!
Free Art Friday sounds awesome — and at Memorial Union (UW Alum alert!) – what could be better! 🙂
thanks for stopping by! Go Badgers.
He does look like a lamb!! Cute. I like the mini art projects!
Your canvas came out really cute! I’m not so good at art projects…they always come out looking like a 6 year old did them! but still fun. I think my last project was one of those pottery painting places last feb- so long ago!
We actually finished our crate coffee table that I saw on Pinterest. It looks amazing!
