Sharpie Art

Seems like Sharpie Art has become very popular. When I started creating Sharpie Art I really didn't think I would love it. However, I have to tell you that it's so much fun and I do love it. Whenever I'm doing art work with my Sharpies I almost feel like a kid again with her crayons. There are pros and cons with using Sharpies just like with any medium, but I find there are more pros than cons in using Sharpies to create with. Unlike paint (or I haven't found a way yet) you can not mix colors to create more colors, but there are quite a few number of colors available. I like the fact that I can just throw my bags of Sharpies in my backpack along with paper or index cards and create work anywhere I want. I have done Sharpie Art on sneakers, index cards, different sized paper and also on tiles. Art doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Art can be simple, but beautiful. Here are a few of my Sharpie Art designs that I did on index cards:


Peace and Love,

PawSox Game and Fireworks

I'm not a big baseball fan, but decided to go to a PawSox game with a bunch of friends. It was fun for the first four innings. That's pretty much my time limit for watching baseball before feeling like I want to fall asleep. So, after settling in and chatting with friends, eating a sausage with peppers and onions and some french fries I was done. Thank God there was going to be fireworks after the game because it gave me something to look forward to. Well, the PawSox lost which was too bad. I have to say, though that if you like baseball you can't beat the price of one of these games and the food was reasonably priced. I don't think there's any bad seat although we had great ones. Even though baseball is not my thing I still had a great time with old and new friends. Plus, I learned so much about baseball thanks to a new friend I met who helped answer a lot of questions I had. She was probably rolling her eyes at how little I knew about this sport. Oh well. Football is my sport. Anyway, I decided to put a few pictures up of the PawSox game and the fireworks afterwards. I have to say the fireworks were awesome. I only took a few pictures because I actually wanted to see the fireworks without seeing them through a camera lense like I usually end up watching them. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
