Technically, I guess it’s more like six projects.

First things first…

1. I started this week working with Cornerstone Center for the Arts, teaching two days of the summer arts camp.  Tuesday, we broke out the chalk pastels and made a sidewalk mural.

Creating our jungle-themed mural.

I chose this project because I really enjoy collaborative projects and because chalk pastels are so much more vibrant than normal sidewalk chalk.  And because it’s kinda in my wheelhouse.

When I was 15 years old I started participating in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s Main Street Chalk Walk. I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor and was there for the first year.  I participated for 13 years and made some really cool work.  This one is one of my favorites.

4. My all-week project (and still going) was commissioned by my church.  I was asked to take woven room dividers, remove the weaving that was already coming apart, and recover them with fabric.

There are a total of four dividers with four panels on each divider.  I have two dividers done, meaning a total of eight panels uncovered, recovered, and put back together.  Two more dividers to go.  Each panel takes about hour and a half to uncover, take apart, cut and sew fabric, stretch fabric around the wooden frame, and then reconnect.

5. My first attempt at upcycled jewelry.  More to come on that soon.

6. Probably my most exciting project for the week was my Discord Mask. (Also available for sale at my Etsy.)  Hubz had suggested this mask to go along with the “Mane Six” that I first made for our kiddo.

It’s true. We are adorable.

It’s possible that we really like My Little Pony.

Timing worked out perfectly for us to attend a free concert by The Shake Ups in Ponyville.  The kid was pretty much on cloud nine.

Crazy week? Yes.  Great week? Definitely!  Let’s see what next week holds.
