At one point in the day I had her on my lap at the desktop with the tablet and pen and she was making art using Photoshop - pretty impressive for a 3 year old, no? I wish I'd taken a photo of her work that we printed out in color, but she took it home before I thought to do so. It was pretty cool. It was done in country red and country blue using the Custom Shape Tool with a person, a house, and trees. It was a little masterpiece and she loved it when she had much of the shape off the paper. There was much giggling going on - she really lives the "art is fun" maxim.
I have some pictures to share with you from a previous visit in which she made me some ATCs. She not only made pictures, it looks like she tried to put her name on them. What do you think of these?

I asked her to write her name on the back, but she couldn't let all that art real estate go to waste, so she drew other things on the backs.
|I'm pretty sure I see an m and an o on the left most one. And it looks like the right most one should maybe be horizontal. I see an n and an o.|
One of the days I was too sick to pay much attention, my kids and their kids went to the park together. They met up at the son's house and my daughter saw some very nice art Little Miss 7 had displayed. When she complimented her on it and told her what a good artist she is (and she is), she said, "Thanks, I get it from my Nana." How sweet is that!!!
I have a weekend full of family stuff (some fun, some obligations) that I need to prepare for, so I am planning to take a trip into town. While I am there I am hoping to find some lamb shoulder so I can try to make a lamb stew for dinner.
I hope to find some down time this weekend to get to work on more books and now that I've found some time saving options to making books (mostly taking the paper to the print shop instead of cutting it one sheet at a time), I am planning to lower the prices on my books. I still need to take a book to the post office in a padded envelope and see what it costs to ship it that way instead of in a Priority Mail box. I am hoping it will be much less than the $5 for a small box or $10.50 for medium size box so that I can lower prices even more. Stay tuned!!
I think I am going to be moving a bit slowly today, so I'd best get on my horse and get this day started. I hope to see you on Monday feeling a lot better and with lots of things to share.
