  • Hello Everyone!Is anyone engaging in any creative type projects for the summer?I bought some clay and purple paint over the week-end, in order to work on some new pieces. This year, I created a bright turquoise-painted bowl as well as a watercolour painting with multi-colour hearts, and a vase/flowers project with some inexpensive blue glass beads, glass containers, and some fake flowers.
