While we were in Cornwall we walked across a field to Brad’s Aunt Nan and Uncle John’s house. Remember Aunt Nan’s shadow box art that I mentioned here? Turns out she loves to make paintings as well as sculptures out of gourds (so many gourds!). She even creates giant chocolate chip cookies, fried eggs and slippers by felting wool. The kids loved exploring her art and yoga studio (created from a chicken coop) and had even more fun using the dog door near the front entrance!

While hanging out with our friend Brad in Connecticut, he allowed us to play with one of his Christmas gifts from his grandma. Do you remember Shrinky Dinks? Not only are they still around, but they come in more variety – including packs of large blank paper where you can create your own drawings and crafts out of them.

Coincidentally Brad’s Aunt Nan came over to the house with her own Shrinky Dink art that she exhibited in a local gallery. Check out her amazing shadow boxes filled with her own created creatures! And after finding this pinterest page of other ideas, I cannot wait to try my hand at making rings.
