Shona Cole's New Book
Lucky me: I just returned from Barnes & Noble with Shona Cole's new book, The Artistic Mother. Between making meatballs for spaghetti (don't be impressed; this is my first attempt) and rounding up all the plastic dinosaurs outside (yes, I did make her help me - but when did she discover that dirt and dinosaurs are better than dolls?), I have stolen a few glances at my new (soon-to-be-favorite) source of inspiration. The book is laid out beautifully and encourages readers - busy Moms specifically - to find a ways to fit more creativity into their lives.
The last half of the book outlines 12 projects to accomplish and Trudy Callan of Artistic Creations with Trudy has created a blogging group to go through them together. As she states, we will be "going through the projects in the new book together, blogging about it and linking to one another." I signed on to participate today and I would love it if you would do the same. It should be a fun project and a great opportunity to meet like-minded artists and Mothers.
