I just have to share all the good things Eliza has been creating and loving this summer.
Besides teaching her twice-weekly neighborhood art classes, she's been:
:: raising a little succulent/cactus garden (purchased bit by bit, along with some Mom $ from cleaning a grody fridge)
:: caring for two new hermit crabs
:: learning the art of macrame
:: painting, drawing, and designing her heart out. (Not pictured are a pair of white Keds she painted/embellished for a teacher at her school. On seeing them for the first time, this woman couldn't contain her joy and amazement with a couple of emphatic and enthusiastic, "SHUT UP!!!"s. (I just smiled...)
:: having a drawing displayed at the Utah Art Festival and being accepted to participate in a local craft show in the fall.
:: Today, she brought home a sweet little bunny (one of her friend Emily's new rabbit babies) to join her beloved Mr. Rochester. She's taking her time to come up with the perfect name for him. Isn't he darling?
Life is good in Eliza's world.
