Watt's Up? (Art and Craft Edition)

Watt's Up? (Art and Craft Edition)

This blog has been strangely silent, and I am sure many of you are wondering, "Watt's up?"

My mental energy has been lower recently as a result of increasing my Babesia treatment and subsequent herxing, so I haven't been able to read or write much. But thankfully, I have been able to spend a few hours most days on art and craft projects, and I decided to share photos of some of them with you! Some of these are projects that I began 7 years ago but became too sick to finish, so it is very satisfying to see these projects coming to completion. :)

"A thought from C.S. Lewis, boiled down and removed from its original habitat: Art has no survival value, but gives survival value." ~ N.D. Wilson, Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl


Aww, thank you so much, Lilly!

I love the first two paintings; they look so good, Lauren!


Hey, Ben! Unfortunately, that won’t work for a number of reasons, including the facts you’re not Lauren Watt and that the Elizabethtown Fair is actually this month and overlaps with the Westmoreland Fair.

Good point, hopefully, I will win enough prize money that my art will have survival value. XD

Hey, these look like items I’ve seen somewhere before. Could I borrow some of them to enter in the Elizabethtown Fair next month?
Art definitely has survival value; think of all the prizes!
However it also gives value to survival, as your quote expresses so well.
