dream art

wow. i've been gone for a long time! i have been so busy with life & grad school lately. the past few weeks have also been kind of an emotional rollercoaster. but now there is a little break so i get to post & visit all of your lovely blogs!
i attended an art museum grand opening a few weeks ago. a lot of the art was breathtaking & beautiful. & some of the frames were art just in themselves.i got a package in the mail from my uberly (is that even a word?) creative cousin wendy. she sent me a cute owl deck of cards, florence & the machine, & a brilliant dream catcher that she made!! anyways, it's so neat & hanging from my ceiling right now. she's made quite a few so far & she is planning to open an etsy shop soon so if you like what you see, i'll let you know when it's open!

it's been raining all morning & i LOVE it. it makes me so happy : ) i just feel like curling up in bed & watching a movie now...


dandelionkisses: hehe, i know right?? i always wanted one of those fish too, but my mom never liked them because they are called fortune telling fish lol.

linda: isn't the fish awesome? it's so fun.

amy: oh she does! i was shocked with how much she sent! i was only expecting a candle :))

inside the cabinet of wonder: wooo hooo for the workshop! you know, you could totally do something like it where you are!! hint hint : )

natalie: she really is!! aha! ohhh you are totally welcome to join, hehe.

hiven: hello! & thank you : )

maria: oh yes! umm i'm not too sure about six year olds, but i know popsicle/craft sticks are super fun! you can make houses, boxes, photo frames, basically anything with them & then paint what you make.

pauline: i love that i'm teaching a class too : ) you are so sweet!

mieke willems: thank you! i'm glad you enjoy the music : ) i'm excited because that is the first one of those fishes i've ever had.

fun times

i got a package in the mail from shelby this weekend! i was so surprised & flattered when she contacted me a few weeks ago telling me that she found a candle "that screams lina" at the market & wanted to send it to me. i was so excited & surprised : ) well, she sent me a fabulous package with much more than just a candle! although i must say, i LOVE the candle. isn't it awesome? owls are so cool.she added a fortune telling fish....looks like i am passionate? hehe.& one of the things that i am so excited about is the notebook she sent me. it's a notebook that i actually saw at target & wanted right away. now i have it! it's from the line that john derian is doing for target right now. i love all of his things!these glasses are so fun : )i'll leave you with a few photos from my arts & crafts class i taught on monday. they successfully finished their moulds & deckles for papermaking! next class - start making paper!


amy: hehe it's fun to think about how they must have been when they were our age : )

hope adela: hello! thank you : ) i really liked them too.

shelbyisms: thanks for the package shelby : ) grey's rocks!!

dandelionkisses: wow. i can't imagine! i really want to go with you now.
