The art “class” was actually a scarf dyeing workshop at my church, not a screen printing class…still on the hunt for one of those. Scarf dyeing is fun and relaxing, and it has beautiful results!
The blue one is my mama-in-law’s scarf, and the reddish one on the end is mine. We were scarf dyeing machines and made two more before the class ended.
I also (pretty successfully) cut my husband’s hair! Hello there, handsome husband.
The before pic is actually from a few months ago, when we were in Vermont and it wasn’t 2 degrees outside and the trees had beautiful leaves (sorry, tangent), but his hair was at least that long when I cut it. I found a great online tutorial that helped it happen.
I’m thankful I’ve gotten to have some creative space lately. I’m looking forward to keeping on with this and different disciplines in the coming month.
