and to glue the table, and to take the scissors to my first ballet shoes which I have meticulously cared for in anticipation of putting in a shadow box with each of my girls' first ballet shoes, for ohhh.... 39 years! I thought I was going to DIE!
Yep. And those toes shoes she tried on recently... well, they now have neither the elastic strap which goes across the top of your foot nor the ribbons which strap around your ankle. Yessirreee... she cut every single thing that could be cut!
But, she is serious about her art! I took some pictures of her most recent creation, and I gotta tell you, I was way impressed!! She did a heart with wings! For her age, I am amazed at her ability to copy something that she sees. Truly!
And she does not think that kid markers are good enough for her. She only wants to use my "artist grade" markers... the kind you buy one at a time for, like, $6.00 or so. I suppose I should be glad she has good taste. But I am not. I want her to use HER markers! Many of mine are of the permanent nature!
And while we are on art... let's further discuss this retreat we got going in September.
As far as I can tell, I have my first class filled. But I need confirmations that my list is accurate.
So if you see your name on this list and don't really want to come or have had second thoughts, please just email me and let me know... firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you thought your name should be on the list and is not, let me know that too.
For some of you who inquired, there WILL be more retreats. There will be some which are ENTIRELY painting. Some which are ENTIRELY fabrics. And some which are all things JEWELRY! I took three activities I feel very confident with to do this first one. So... check the list. And let me know if you are coming in September!

If this is correct, email me so I can get some details to you. And so I can find out what you have in mind for a theme for your mini book so I can start storing up goodies specific to your project. This is gonna be a blast! MO
