Saturated Saturday

Hunter’s eighth birthday party was today.  It’s hard to believe my youngest grandson is eight.  I remember the day he was born like yesterday and flash it’s eight years later.  It was overcast and rainy as always on his birthday party day.  I wonder if I bring that on because I get so depressed thinking about how time flies when this event occurs.  We had fun though we were rained on a few times.

It is a time to get together and chat with relatives.  My brother told me that someone at the library where he works wants me to possibly put on a little demonstration of how to make ATC’s or altered art projects.  I am not a public speaker or a professional artists who could profess to tell others how to create art.  This is a scary situation to me but a challenge I might take if really asked to do it.  It could possibly be a step towards being noticed for my work.  I have been asked before by a local craft store to do the same but didn’t do it.  Now I may be ready to take the plunge.  I will have to wear something that doesn’t show sweat and wear extra deoderant because I will surely be sweating.  This could turn out to be another saturated event.


About kboat

I’m a native of La Porte, Indiana. When I was growing up we didn’t have much money, so I made my gifts for others with materials I found out and around. I loved it. And I have to say I was pretty good at it. People always liked what I gave them. I went to work for 26 years as an employee of a major asphalt paving company. I began as a secretary and eventually made my way to office manager. Needless to say I mostly only dreamed about my art - filling my mind with many ideas. Although the company did take advantage of my skills once in a while. For example, I created in-house materials for an open house. I loved “keeping my hand in” whenever an opportunity presented itself. Then I retired. And ... funny thing ... all those pent-up ideas I used to dream about began to roll out. I joined ATC (Artists Trading Cards) on line, I took classes and tutorials and learned about the processes of creating art. Today, I pursue these learning opportunities to open myself to new ideas and techniques. I also love opportunities to assist in classes for special populations. I find I learn a lot from those who have no preconceptions about what they should be doing. I’m eager to learn new things. Mostly I don’t have any idea what I set out to make. I simply let the ideas find me. The result is a wide variety of media and expression triggered by my experiences in every-day life. I hope you enjoy my work. View all posts by kboat
