Raised By Wolves

I’ve been taking an online class: “Crafting My Best Life”, created and taught by Jenny Doh, the former editor of Somerset Studios wonderful publications. What an experience! The class is from CRESCENDOh Creative Lab where there are more great learning adventures!

First we had to find out “who am I”
DCF 1.0
We responded to a set of questions and created a self portrait using the answers.This is my self portrait, the central figure is from a painting done by my mother. Where are you from? San Diego and Palm Springs. What were you good at when you were 10 or 11? I loved science and bird-watching – so I used a microscope and a yellow bird. Who were your heroes? Henry David Thoreau and Keith Richards. Who raised you? My first response was “wolves”, well, I like that! So it’s official, I was raised by wolves and you can see one in the lower left corner!
Next: painted rocks!

Hi fellow Bohemian and thanks for stopping by tonight's Post. How fun taking classes taught by Jenny... I'm thinking of taking a soldering class sometime so I can expand my jewelry making skills... I have so many ideas and vision of what I want to create and soldering would give me more options. I asked The Man to teach my BFF and I... but he said Two Menopausal Women + him trying to teach *he is not the most patient of teachers LOL* = us probably setting him on fire! *wink* Well, he's got a point... perhaps we should just look for a class... *smiles*

That is a fun card. I love the idea behind it and the fact you could use your mother's painting as a central focus. I keep thinking I should take some sort of class too just to expand my 'box'. Take care, Connie
