Art Show

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. ~Pablo Picasso

Tonight is DD's art show for her art classes. She did an amazing job on her pieces this year -- I'm SO proud of her. She took her time and it really shows! I'll take pictures of whatever they display and post for tomorrow.

She really loves doing art and crafty things. It's funny -- growing up, I liked art okay, but I really loved performing art. I was in band, drama and choir. I keep trying to get DD interested in them, but she has NO desire at all.

I was also really into sports. I played volleyball and basketball, and in junior high, I ran track for a couple years. So, again I try to get her involved. Nope. She likes to swim (but doesn't want to compete), she enjoyed gymnastics, but it wasn't a passion.

I guess we really can't make them into clones of ourselves, can we?


On the writing front, I've been working through trying to outline my story that I'm working on. I'm not a plotter, but I find that I really feel the need to KNOW where this one is going... partly because I'm planning it as part of a series, and partly because there is a "big mystery" that I have to work through.

So, not a lot of actual writing going on, but enough thinking that my head aches from it! LOL...


You Are a Mouse

You are a quiet and observant creature. You may not have much to say, but you always know what's going on.

You are good at getting things done without attracting attention. You are sneaky, but only in a good way.

You are well organized. You develop a system for everything you do.

You notice and analyze everything. You can be a bit fearful, but it's only because you are aware of every detail of your surroundings.

That's pretty much right on, except for the "quiet" part... LOLOL....

I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures.

I was the same way. I had no desire to perform, but I always volunteered to paint backdrops and design sets.

You Are a Hamster
You are easygoing and friendly. You connect quickly and easily with others.
You are popular, mostly due to your laid back attitude. People like to be around you.

You may feel like you are a bit of an oddball, but you always seem to find kindred spirits.
You don't trust just anyone, but you do place your trust in those who have earned it.

I liked craft and creativity growing up, but not to show to the world.

Good luck with your writing.

You Are a Rabbit

You are a curious little creature. You love to explore every single thing around you.

You are sensitive and observant. No one can pull anything over on you.

You are constantly on guard and ready to retreat if things get dangerous. You move quickly.

You can be a bit territorial and possessive of what's yours. You've worked hard for everything you have.

This is so true.

Have a good Thursday.

I went to artfire and saw DDs designs she is really talented, you must be so proud of her. I keep on praying my son does not become my clone he has inherited all of my evil genius traits!

You Are a Beaver
You are a creature of action. You always like to get moving on your dreams.
You need to stay busy to be happy - both with work and with fun.

You have big dreams, and you plan carefully to achieve them.
You have your priorities straight, and you're capable of building something amazing.

considering I had big front teeth that i eventually grew into, this is kinda funny but true.

It's always hard when we want the same enjoyments for our kids that we had, but they aren't that interested in. I loved singing, still do, and performed with my school chorus and then later with a group. My Daughter won't sing-ever. Not even in church. But, she is so much more than I ever was. She is brave and strong and knows exactly what she wants. Our kids are they're own, I think it's meant to be that way.

I am a Rabbit, too.

I hope you're having a delightful day!

I liked art class when I was in school but it wasn't enough of a passion to continue once I graduated.
