More fun thrift store finds to share:
Two boxes of 16 Christmas cards for $2.30 each.
A couple sets of Christmas high-ball/old fashioned glasses for 90 cents each.
A set of Christmas mugs and saucers for 60 cents for each set
I was in a Christmasy mood and they had a lot of holiday items on display.
In September, I participated in an online summit called Start Your Art, a summit full of art lectures, videos, demonstrations and inspirations to help restart an art practice. As promised, it provided lots of empowerment, inspiration, ways to overcome fear and connect with yourself.
I watched each of the sessions and did the creative exercise on the same day they were released because I knew if I got behind, I would have trouble catching up.
I adore sketchbook art so I completed almost all of the daily demos and challenges in two sketchbooks. Here’s what I got out of most of the sessions, with only a few incomplete (ideas still brewing).
So fun to have all of these ideas captured in my sketchbooks! I’m excited to finish some of the pages that are blank, and to flush out some of these characters and vignettes and scenes into something more. This summit definitely restarted my personal art practice!
More treasures from the thrift store:
I found another glass canister for storing coffee beans. These are hard to find so if they’re clean and in good condition, I usually buy it, especially when it’s only $1.20. I also found a little brandy snifter glass and a vintage slotted spoon, just because it was fancy looking.
I’ve always wanted a set of Christmas dishes so I was excited to find this porcelain salt and pepper shaker set. They are in great condition, clean and no chips, and only $1.20. It will be fun to have a mismatched set of Christmas dishes as I find more pieces.I spent less than $6.00 on these goodies and a couple cereal bowls that match my everyday dishes.
