Coming in July: SAJ Art Camp!


I’m super excited to announce my summer ART Camp! It’s happening!  July 16th-20th, 2018. CaH-Razeeeee!  I mentioned it on Facebook a week or so ago but I wanted to go into a little more detail here. YES! I’m really am doing a summer camp for kids and whomever else wants to show up. We are open to all ages.

I’m totally nervous. Can I do it? I think I can! I have been making messes with kids for like 40-some years after all.

I only have eight spots open for each day so it shouldn’t be too out of control. I think I can handle eight people making messes at the same time. Can Payam and our living room rug handle eight people making messes? That is the better question. We are going to be painting, making paper mâché, swimming, cutting cardboard (box cutters and kids, oh my!) and learning proper technique, like how to clean and care for your brushes etc… It should be really really fun. AND MESSY!

So if you are looking for something fun and messy to do this summer please check out my art camp! Spots are still open but not for long! Just kidding. I have no idea how fast this camp will fill up. But some people have already enrolled so it’s HAPPENING!

WOOT!

Blink! Blink! Blink!

We are back home and now it’s back-to-work time, which is not going so well but fortunately right before we went to London we landed this really fun Energizer Flashlight post. The deadline was super tight but the girls and I managed to learn morse code, make morse code bracelets AND pull off a sleepover photoshoot in our living room, all days before we left for London! Fun right?

Maybe I’m better under pressure? Don’t tell anyone though because I hate it!!!! I am such a mad woman when I’m trying to make the images in my head show up on camera the way I see them. Everyone around me hates it too.

But we managed! Bug is a great model since she’s been “posing” for me since before she could even talk. She doesn’t even know she is posing most of the time because my directions are muscle memory for her. (Though she has been doing this profile chin jut lately with ice cold eyes [not pictured here, maybe in the wedding post below] that I’m just not getting. I’ll just chalk it up to tweenagerhood and finding her own identity.)

But do check it out! We loved the morse code bracelets we made. I thought they’d only last a few days because they are only made with embroidery floss tied in a knot but the girls kept them on for almost a whole month! We might have to make them again with something more durable. They were quite a hit!
