1. Cycling to the lake - The lake is peaceful as all get out, and the storm has left the world smelling fresh and green. Piles of fallen trees and smashed power lines were quite a sight to see. I hate the hilly bits, but I admit that I feel less conflicted about drinking that sugary Iced Capp afterward!
2. Sweet sales at the craft store - I knew I was wise to hold off on buying new picture frames! Plus, with the super excellent coupons, there was no reason NOT to get some super pretty journaling cards. YAAASSSSSS!
3. Two hours of "Cry Plays 'Until Dawn'". I don't expect everyone to understand this one.
I feel like there is a bajillion other more mundane things for which I'm grateful today, but have some shiny colours instead!
I've been so busy with work over the summer that I hadn't put a whole lot of thought into the upcoming Art in the City event! A big part of the event is that each artist offers a kind of demonstration. My plan is to encourage visitors to create their own tradeable art cards, since I personally value interactivity over just being watched.
Don't you want to come out and test out some watercolours on little pieces of paper? The theme will be Patterns & Colours! The watercolours you will be trying out will be 8 colours of Peerless, which are a bit quirky!
