This week has gone by quickly. One highlight of the week was thrift shopping at the new Hospice Thrift Shop. I found all sorts of things for collage and assemblage work. This 4"x6" collage was made using my new finds from a couple of thrift shops: watercolour paper, brown paper bag, acrylic paint, paper from an art magazine, and a 4b pencil.

The new Hospice Thrift Shop is bigger than the older one in another area of Nanaimo. It opened a few weeks ago and is STILL tidy, some might say Too tidy, but with more things coming in all the time I'm sure it will quickly become untidy! I'll go back next week for another hunting session. Their prices are good and the staff are friendly. My kind of place!

The second highlight of the week was cuddling Arya for an hour while my daughter was at an appointment. Arya smiles and focuses on faces. She does cry, I know impossible to believe!

On Saturday I'll be posting my "Drawing Challenge: Shadows" hosted by the lovely Ariane of Rose .
I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the Drawing Challenges and have met some wonderful women from all over the world through it. Please drop by on Saturday/Sunday to see some lovely and amazing work. Until then.
