This month, we decided that everyone needed a good dose of sunshine for our Sunday Funday. Liquid sunshine that is, so we made our favourite resort food and made the blender work overtime creating a wonderful slushy concoction for everyone to drink. Not ones to waste any time, guests were leid on arrival and a drink (or two) was placed in everyone’s hand. Everyone had fun and left the party a little (or lot) tipsy with a new piece of art. It was the makings of a perfect afternoon.
We realize that we live in the Cariboo but Mother Nature is being a fickle bitch this year and it’s snowing. On April 1st. Nope, it’s not a joke. This is the truest winter we’ve had in years. It’s the winter that I remember from when I was little. The “never ending, snow angel and igloo making, shovel the end of the driveway right after the snow plow went by so that it didn’t freeze into a block of ice” winter. As a kid, the overall responsibilities we had were much less so it was actually fun to shovel the massive snow chunks that the plow left behind. It made us feel important and like mini-superwomen. As an adult, we hear the snow plow and it just makes us feel tired.
Most of our crafting time this month was spent trying out different ideas and methods we found for the “dirty pour.” It was trickier than we originally thought and therefore, it became our only craft for the month. C.Dolly demonstrated the ‘Dirty Pour’ for our craft afternoon and everyone got started creating their masterpieces.

Another low prep, relaxing Sunday Funday that produced some beautiful art to hang on the walls and lowered everyone’s stress levels adequately enough to be able to face the week ahead.
