Art Every Day 27


I’m still feeling a bit stuffed, but enjoying the leftovers from yesterday’s feast at Steph’s home. This is one of the napkins that M & M tie-dyed.(Sorry for the blurry photo that I took with my iPhone.)  Here is how the table looked before we plundered it.


Except for the church key (smile), it looked like something out of Real Simple. Speaking of Real Simple, Steph and Maria’s first book, A Year of Mornings, was mentioned in the December issue.


I finally received a copy of the just published, A Year of Evenings. It is a lovely representation of evening light as you go through the year. I am so proud of my children and what they have accomplished.

After dinner we played a new game, at least to me, called Apples to Apples – the junior edition. It was so much fun. I presume that there is a regular edition, too. I must look into it.

The art for today was more work on the pink piece. I am not really enjoying it and so am trying to make it more interesting. Sometimes, I wish I had just done “Pretty in Pink” and be done with it!!

    I love the table and the kid craft. Congrats to Steph and Mav for getting such a great response over all to their books. And thanks to you for letting me have a peek at the Evenings book too.

    What is it about Thanksgiving and board games? We played Apples to Apples a couple of years ago (friends brought theirs with them) and had an uproarious time. I’ve been meaning to buy a set ever since.

    Apples to Apples is our favorite family games, and we play it after holiday dinners and on vacation and various times in between — glad to know you enjoyed it! The table looks beautiful and I’m so impressed that M and M are dyeing already! I see great creations in their futures.

    How funny! We played Apples to Apples after our Thanksgiving dinner too. It was the regular version, but I can imagine it would be a lot of fun for kids and adults together in a more kid-friendly version. (Nothing racy or anything about the regular version, just some concepts younger kids wouldn’t necessarily understand) We thought it was a very fun game.

    We love Apples to Apples. Very fun. By the way, Real Simple magazine is on sale for only $5 for a year subscription on Amazon through Dec 1 I think. I ordered a few for all my magazine loving friends (and myself).
