I’m settling into a new routine, but evidently, it doesn’t include much blogging, keeping up with emails or much of anything other than work, dog walks and the musts in my datebook. One of those included a Wine and Design mini-fundraiser for the League, even though I kept trying to tell everyone I can’t even draw a stick figure.
Before I share precisely how untalented I am, I do suggest you check out Wine and Design if there’s a location near you. It was a lot of fun, and while I’m still arguing with the co-worker whose wife and mother had done it before, who assured me I couldn’t fail, I highly recommend it. Before I show off my un-art, I will say it turned out better than I expected, and it was great fun, especially with other Leaguers and a guest or two. (Turns out the local W&D owner went to school with a new JLC member AND said member’s sister inlaw, who was there to paint too. I keep telling everyone… we’re all so very connected here.)
And I’d love to go back for the paint your pet session. Wonder if the Knight would go with me so both girls could be immortalized
Well, there you go. I don’t love it, but in all fairness, I don’t like yellow much, and the art just isn’t my style. I should have taken a photo of the sample, but I didn’t, so … just imagine what it might look like if someone who knew what she was doing had painted it.
Did I mention that Wine & Design handed me a check for the JLC before the session started? So it was more than worth it, even if I have no idea what we’ll do with this canvas. I had joked that I was going to give it to my mother inlaw for her birthday, but I really do love her and it won’t work anywhere in her house either.
Have you tried a new craft lately?
