These are gorgeous! I do hope the art show goes well for you.
Ooooh, pretty!

Thank you! We could probably have a pretty good contest on the craft dabbling!

My art group sponsors an open studio tour every November, and it irks me that for the map that guides customers to the various studios, each artist is limited to FIVE WORDS to describe their artistic product. That's fine for those who can cover their work with "Southwest watercolors" or "chain maille and beaded jewelry" or "quilting and fabric art" or "Lathe-turned wooden bowls," because that's all they do. I had to fight with the event chair just to get mine extended to six words and an ampersand: "Really Neat Rocks: Lapidary & Gemstone Jewelry." I don't get to list that I will also have mini-quilts and quilted jackets and other quilted accessories, lathe-turned wooden bowls and jars, plus my f**king books, all of which I've been "juried" into the group for.

That doesn't count the knitting and crocheting, cross stitch, doll clothes and doll furniture and dolls, origami ornaments, stained glass, and whatever else I've done that I can't think of off the top of my head at the moment!! ;-)

But it's in my DNA. I'm at least a fourth-generation arts & crafter. It bugs me that neither of my kids has taken up anything even remotely related.
