Last weekend, Henry and I went to this really cool place to do some volunteer work for serve day. It is called the Orange County Therapeutic Arts Center in Santa Ana. There was art all over the walls and the center works with children with cognitive and learning disabilities. Henry had fun painting and I cut, pasted and glued for art projects preparation. What a cool place. This was just one of the the cool projects on the wall.

Got some scrappin done today. I wanted to mix it up a bit and stretch my style. I have been inspired by Adrienne Looman. I even ordered some of her buttons. Tomorrow I am buying a watercolor travel set, for the class I am going to take. I'll post some of those paintings next week. Looking forward to it.

Thursday nights in downtown Fullerton there is a streetfair/farmer's market. There is a fountain that shoots out of the ground that the kids love to play in. There is alos a live band, so the atmosphere is really cool. Everyone brings their dogs too, so it is fun to people and dog watch.
We went this last week and will have to do it again soon.

We went to the Orange County Fair last week with the Dunn's and had a really great time. My feet were killing me, but we saw a lot of animals, rode some rides and Henry even won a guitar. The pig was about to give birth, and we waited, but we wanted to see the rest of the fair. The corndogs were gigantic.

It has been a busy weekend and I haven't had much time for creativity. I did get a swap of atc's traded and they'll go out in the mail tomorrow. I am hosting a pumpkin atc swap, but it's too early to post fall pictures so I'll save them. I have signed up for a watercolor class at Schroeder Studio Gallery in Old Towne Orange, so I am excited for that. I am so into mixed media collage, this will be a change for me. What's your favorite medium?

This is my layout for scrapjacked this month. I haven't done it in a while so it was nice to get out of the box and try a new layout inspiration. The background paper is by MOD. I ripped black cardstock for the frame and added a handmade tag and ribbon. I found these cool rinestones at Joann's on sale by Creating Keepsakes. I stocked up. Thanks for looking.

Today we went to the ART area in Santa Ana. We looked at some of the studios and galleries and had lunch at the Gypsy Den. We checked out the ARTbar, and found a cool art gallery that had mobils made out of recycled trash. Just the thing that Henry likes to do with cardboard and tape. It was very cool.
