|Index Card a Day #2|
I made my second index card for Daisy Yellow's Index Card a Day. My goal is to make half of the cards.. about 30. I like the idea of making quick index card artworks... with my other projects going on (Project Life scrapbooking, working on my Professional Development Plan for school, organizing stuff at school, playing with Daria) we'll see how much I get done this summer.
Daria's at daycare once per week this summer to keep her in the swing of things. Today she is there. My plan today is to write this blog post, then I need to deep clean the house and do laundry. I know, I lead an exciting life! We watched my brother's dogs this week and with 3 dogs in a small house, that creates a LOT of fur balls!
When I pick up Daria from daycare I'm going to take out the index cards and scrapbooking stuff and see if she wants to make some art with me.
I'm reading this really interesting book I got from the library called Life at Home in the Twenty-first Century: 32 Families Open their Doors which is way different from other home design books you will read. These are pictures of middle class families' homes in their every day life... real-time observations in unstaged homes. Bottom line is that Americans have too much clutter!
- American children (a small percentage of the world's children) buy 40% of the world's toys!
- 3/4 of the families in this study use their garages for storage only, not for their cars!
- The researchers noted that how cluttered the refrigerator is with schedules, photos and magnets is directly proportional to how cluttered and messy the rest of the house is.
More colorful art:
Here are a couple of watercolor doodles I made awhile back and never posted.
