Field trip day! We had a list, an agenda and a good time.
We hit Michaels and got some necessary supplies. Gee, I like all the home deco stuff they are carrying. The adult colouring books are all the rage. Two of these are actually stickers and have lots of possibilities and not all are related to the grand kiddies. I had seen a video on making a hardcover colouring book into an art journal. very cool!
We did a whirlwind walk through of the Market Place in Ikea which is good for saving money. Or so I thought. I had two shelves on my list for the art wall when I saw a 'now or never' sign. HMMM! I'm always looking for organizational items and I stood in front of it for five valuable minutes! He who hesitates is lost! So...
Then we were off to catch the opening doors for ArtsJunktion
! This is in an older section of Winnipeg, right downtown. I was kinda hoping that all the rain would yield us a good parking spot but there is an extension of a college nearby so I had to use my old parallel parking skills!
I had grabbed some stuff to contribute. You record the cubic quantity of what, if anything, you brought and as you leave you record again what you left with. I'm not sure I gained on the exchange as I did carry away a bit more than I brought. There is no money involved. It is all free. What a concept! I also got some free organizational ideas! :)
If you need bits and pieces this is the place. I found game pieces for the grand kiddies smash book page. I think those cardboard tubes will be great on the gelli plate. Half way home I thought of a use for the cobalt blue tiles I'd passed up! :[
They displayed some art and these rotated. There were more metal sculptures put out outside after we had entered but my phone had switched to selfie mode and I am still learning how to make appropriate changes. :( I did learn that you can't do anything with gloves on! LOL
Now to finish up this weeks to-do list which hopefully includes time for me to figure out how to get the 'Sprutt' together!
It's always a great day when you're still feeling inspired on the way home.
Looks and sounds like a very productive day. We have nothing like these stores you visited. Maybe in the "city", San Francisco which I never go to. Too complicated for me. I have missed a few posts but in review you are staying busy on every front. Creative Bliss Dear...
Wow.... I think I would love the Art Junktion!!
What a fun day. What I wouldn't do to go an IKEA!!!
