This year I'll be doing something a bit different: I'll be donating to my grandson's school's Arts&Letters Sale. I fiddle with beads and found objects, making small three-dimensional wall sculptures out of branches and twigs, feathers and ribbon, beads, washers, wire, and old jewelry. I enjoy it- giving a new life to something discarded- and I like keeping my hands busy, my mind busy. I'm planning to create an ArtCard piece like the ones I've been making while I'm studying ABM: beautiful wood, found; beads from my stash, some over a hundred years old. Ribbon, chain, feathers, turned into landscapes and waterfalls, small, complete, infinite. Won't that be fun? I've sent for my ArtCard- can't wait for it to come in the mail!
