Is Hobby Lobby Inspirational?: Daily Art Practice
I took a break from blogging last week but I thought I would share what I did on the previous weeks Artist’s Date. While in the home decor section at Hobby Lobby, I saw this piece of wall art and thought, “I could make that.” I even have the perfect spot across from our toilet to display it. Maybe one of these days I will sit down and make my own bathroom version of this Word Search. It would be the perfect diversion for guests and quite the conversation piece. Would you display this in your Bathroom?
Daily Art Practice
I took several pictures of items that caught my eye, while browsing. Hobby Lobby already had their Christmas decor on display. I usually have a rule that I will not browse a Christmas aisle until around Thanksgiving, but I wanted the whole experience, so I went down every single aisle. I love looking at decor and getting ideas, but I didn’t buy anything. It was mainly a trip to get inspiration.
When I got home, I sketched and water-colored a few of my favorite items from the pictures I took and journaled about my experience. Before going on Artist’s Dates, I never thought to browse a store, snap some pictures and make art from what I saw. I have really enjoyed these outings, especially since I don’t always have to spend money.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Yogi Pumpkin Spice Tea . I love spice tea so I thought I would give this one a try. As typical of Yogi Tea’s, it has a medicinal/herb-like taste. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting but I didn’t find it unpleasant. Next time I may try adding some heated milk and honey.
Happy Tea Day,
