I’m struggling with a serious case of the messy table top blues. It’s always covered. Good stuff happens on this table, but I can’t seem to keep on top of clearing it off lately. It collects such eclectic assortments . . . play dough, typewriter, books, notebooks, hair brush, candles, squirt bottle, binoculars, scissors, tape, yarn, felt, tiny budda statue, and food, always food. . .
I went to look for the latest issue of Taproot Magazine and found it on her desk, covered in the materials of a creative mind. This girl is always making something (and usually something tiny). She enjoys Taproot as much as I do!
The girls are working on some new miniature food pieces for the summer art fair. These are made from sculpey, a polymer clay that is baked in the oven and then glazed. The girls make food for their tiny creatures, and they’ve gotten to like the process so much that now they make it “in mass” to sell and share. Amie has set us a goal: 200 pieces by July 8th, the date of the first art fair. The pressure is on!
