Clothespin People of Pinole by Elora

Had fun crafting with ten year old grandaughter on Thanksgiving vacation.  Here are a few of the characters that happened to be clothespins.  There's Surfer Dude,   Lady Gaga, Unknown Female (possibly Valley Girl), Bikini Girl (too much chlorine in her hair!  Aaaaaaaaah! ) Elora Herself, Rasta Man and Tidy Whitey.  Then we decorated and added bling to plastic hairbands from the Dollar Store.  This is Art for the Grandma Soul!

                     My People:  Recycle Man, Angel, Mermaid

My Faves: Surfer Dude, His surfboard and his Girlfriend

      ..and Hula Girl by mom, Holle, of Noho Nani Mai

An Experiment With Eggs








I went crazy on this and it became a slideshow after I invented a few new techno-curse words! Is there a way to put a slideshow on a blog?  If so, my next project is a dictionary of those words...

Tamale is Another Day



Visited art studios in Barrio Logan. Ate rolled tacos and sketched on a street corner under an umbrella. That's the Coronado Bridge in the distance. Plan to return tomorrow.  Saw a great sculpture made out of typewriter parts! http://devicegallery.com/galleries/mayer/mayer.html
