Get your paint on

Day 55

I stumbled across Lisa Congdon's blog again yesterday to browse the images of her project "365 days of hand lettering".  The first time I saw her art was in the SF shop Doe (sadly, now closed) where they had really pretty cards, housewares, jewelry and clothes.

I love looking at daily projects like this but never really do a little art project on a daily basis myself.  Do you?

Day 79

She and her friend are offering an online painting class and it's 100$!  I don't have a lot of cash to spare but thought that 100$ was a reasonable price for a 5 week online "class".  Each week you're given an assignment and then you post it to flickr.  It sounds like there are a couple relaxed online discussions too.  I think I'm going to sign up even though I can't paint.

I was trying to decide if 100$ on an online class was something that was reasonable for me right now and thought of what else I could frivolously spend 100$ on.  I scribbled a short list before falling asleep last night.


1. A painting class.
2. A fancy dinner at home for 6 friends.
3. A really cute dress.
4. An overnight stay in a beach cottage.
5. A pair of concert tickets.

If you had 100$ to spend on something fun and frivolous, what would it be?

Have a great weekend!

  1. I'm pretending that $100 = £100, so I would get new glasses or new contact lenses, but preferably the last bits of wedding and birthday gifts for friends + postage :)
