#faf Life is like a box of chocolates

It isn't always easy, sometimes it is bitter and unpleasant, other times filled with unimaginable joys.

May the sweet moments in life soothe and sustain you through the not so sweet times. And when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. Tomorrow is a new day, and a chance to create new joys.

Edible MICE, #FAFyes and Ornaments

From Jafabrit
In between Nancy running the gallery for the YS Arts Council and moi drawing and plotting next years art projects, we play.  I've finished making the wedding crackers for my daughters wedding, and last Tuesday was spent making chocolate mice, a whole bowl of them. How we didn't gobble them all down is a wonder.

Nancy saw the idea in an old Family Fun magazine, and an apt title because it was FUN.

Nancy has been busy making felt ornaments and this weeks Free Art Friday Box-ATC Kit, which we left out this morning.
It was raining so we had to put the box in a clear bag, but if you are in town and see the yellow tag, it's finders keepers.

Have a GREAT weekend and thanks for visiting.

Nancy's Notes: Talking Trash

and we love trash
as in recycled trash that is.

Nancy has done quite a few pieces of work that creatively recycle odds and ends. This is a crushed can painting called "huh" that was included in several exhibits and a book.
This is felt applique on a hubcap for the landfill project.
I found this old ceramic from next to the trash one day and gave it to Nancy and it got collaged.

All those little itty bitty pieces of felt scraps are saved and used, so Nancy has a way of saving and using anything :)

Nancy is the gallery curator for the Yellow Springs Arts Council.

Happy Tree

What a glorious sunshiney day in 
Yellow Springs Ohio on Friday
and hanging out with Nancy while she's working at Village Artisans always makes me smile.
Smileys mostly around the Village
