Isn't this pretty. Hand dying (literally) the newest additions to my Etsy shop was fun because every step of the process was art in itself. Look at the water when your mixing the dye. Very spooky and abstract
Here's the pile of material before I dyed it. Things almost always look better when it seems as though they've been sitting in an attic for a couple years.
A drive in the car is like the Spa to me. Music is a love of mine as much as Art is. So when I can get in the car and the kids are strapped down, they can't go anywhere or get into arguments. Well, I'll rephrase. They don't get into arguments as often. & when they do I ignore it because I'm driving and I will not be one of those crazy soccer moms driving while being referee and talking on the phone. The car for me is usually strictly listening to my favorite mixed CD. As you can see I always have my camera on my drives because there are some amazing sunsets and skyscapes in Missouri. I promise I only take these photos when I'm at a Stop Light :)
I had my husband take Valencia to dance class this week & he reported that she did alot better with some participation but the teacher said she may have to make her sit out next time if she cooperates like she did this week. So she did better but not up to the standards I guess. I'm thinking ballet may be to Strict for a spirit like Valencia. I find if the question is asked of her "Do you want to Dance?" It's "Yeah!" with a little jumping and smiles but if the question turns into a command "Hold the bar, and put your foot out" That command is answered with a run to the wall or sit down & refuse. I'm thinking maybe Tumbling next season :)
