I am working on an etsy update for next week: delicious new French letters and documents, brocante cards, Antique French pharmacie bottles, and a few other special treasures.
It's also time for a summer giveaway. I have a few ideas, but haven't settled on anything particular just yet. What would you like to have the chance to win? If you have any clever ideas, please email and let me know.
For the past 10 years I have taught children's art camps at a local art store during the summer break from school.
I teach them to draw. To paint. To colour.
We cut and paste. We collage.
We make prints and drape plaster and shape modeling clay.
The same children come back year after year. As many as six summers in a row.
The powers that be have decided that the studio space could be better used as part of the store.
But what could be better than fostering children's creativity? Giving them skills and experience with new materials and ways of working? Inspiring them to use their eyes and their hands to create what is in their hearts?
For relieving hot flashes and certain other symptoms of "Change of Life" (Menopause) and cramps and other distress of Monthly Periods (Menstruation) - not due to organic disease. Acts as a uterine sedative.
A sweet gift from a sweet friend. Thank you, C.
