This And That

by sandihester

I will have a new addition at this next art sale – a “This and That” table.  It will include some random creative things I’ve made throughout the year.  The items on this table won’t be things I’ll necessarily always be making – they are just “itches” I’ve had and the “This and That” table will be an outlet for my creative “ideas”.  Here’s a peak at some of those items:

Here are some of the necklaces I’ll have on the “This and That” table.  Some have words on them, some are chokers or can be made into bracelets, and some look like pages torn from the bible or hymnal.

I’ve also made some shadow boxes that have aged hymnal pages in them – here is a picture of one on my shelf and a close-up picture so you can see some detail.

These may be the strangest items, but I love them.  They are bowls made out of scripture pages (I have one with the name of Jesus on it and I’m working on making some out of hymnal pages).  I’ve had these on my table for months now and am growing quite attached to them – so we’ll see if they actually make it to the “This and That” table – I’ll try my best to part with them :).

I’ve been quite busy getting ready for the sale so I haven’t been painting much.  Here are the only two paintings I’ve done since I posted last.

If you didn’t receive a “save the date” e-mail about the art sale and you are interested in coming you can e-mail me at or leave me a comment.  The sale will be at our house on Saturday July 26th from 10:00 – 1:00.  If you did receive that e-mail I’ll be sending you an invitation closer to the sale with all the info. including directions to our house.  Hope to see you then!
