7-26-10 creative brain
Still a few more posts regarding the Girls Weekend on the Farm from last weekend. We got creative this year on Sunday morning.... late morning, after sleeping in. I know I was awake until 1:00AM… and I was the first one who went to bed. So we all were moving slow on Sunday morning.
I found these cute paper mache pigs in a shop up in my hometown over my 4th of July visit and thought this could be a fun creative play project for us, with this farm animal theme.
Here Mom's cat was a bit intimidated by them.
I wasn’t sure if all the gals would be into art, or if it was just Molly and I who like to paint… but this project was a hit. Ann called it "artsy-fartsy".... sometimes gassy, middle-age women being artistic.
We set up a big table, threw down the old sheets and got to painting, cutting from old magazines and using the good old decoupage.
Teresa got right to work with a vision of creating a special pig for her daughter. She found some interesting “sayings” …. my favorite one was “This is not a wall, this is an opportunity”. Not sure what magazine she was clipping from, but Molly had a good pile from Oprah to garden to cooking magazines.
Kelley got distracted at reading recipes. We made one "autograph pig which we each signed our name.... along with "girls just want to have fun" written across the nose.
Afterwards we had fun admiring our pigs and putting them on display. Peeps was curious.
