This ceramic fish was made by my 12 year old grandson, Ted. Don't you love the way he captured the essence of the fish? It's about 8 " long, and 5" wide. Cool touch, having blood on the teeth.

This is a painting done by my eleven year old grandson, Thomas. It's so full of expression,, I just love it. It's about 12" square. Done with paint, and pastels. This was a birthday gift for me. He knows just what I wanted.

The first thing we made, after taking 6 +1/2 hours for a 3 hour drive, was musical chairs paintings. This is my section of the whole, which we cut into even parts. It's done on canvas, so we can make book covers with it. We'll cover art journals.
This is us, as we set out on the Baguettes Summer Extravaganza 2011. Babe, Julie, Kat. Deb.
