In spite of the evidence of the benefits of the arts, it seems that cutting art programs in school continues. On the positive side, and there are few positive sides now with budget cuts, a British teacher uses her windfall to help put more artists in schools.
For those of you who have loved The Little Prince, the baobab is now becoming an endangered species.
Beautiful images of June's Strawberry Moon.
Mail: I'm already behind in answering my mail and more has arrived.
Teresa included the envelope below that she made from a
vintage children's book page.
Unwilling to let a good envelope go to waste,
I added a couple of things Teresa included in her envelope
With that inspiration, I'm working on catching up with my correspondence!
What I'm Watching: In 2012, I read Kate Atkinson's Case Histories. So many folks loved the book, but for some reason it didn't resonate with me. However, I've started watching the Amazon television series and love it. An unusual case of much preferring the television series or movie to the book.
Making: Have made several more Artist Trading Coins. Boy, this new trend is all over the internet. I made a couple in May, then kind of neglected the ones I had in progress, but recently, I've been doing a little more experimenting. You can find all kinds of tutorials on YouTube, but my favorite is still the Crafty Hodges video. :)
Stay cool and safe over this weekend preceding the 4th of July!
