Thursday Art Date and PPF

Hi Everyone!
The week has flown by. I didn't realize that it was Thursday until a few minutes ago. So I grabbed some photos off my FB to share with Thursday Art Date and Paint Party Friday.
The prompt for TAD is Dine. 
Well these are some of the foods I like to "dine" on and I make them.

I crunchy baked eggplant.

Flatbread Pizza

I make my own hummus.

Very old piece featured in a beading book.

Another old piece sold before I finished it.

Beaded Gourd that was auctioned off to help a local hospital. Auctioned for $800.00. It is also published.

another beaded gourd with leather 1997.

In the 1990's treasure necklaces were very popular. This was published Lapidary Journal. The first magazine to publish beading instructions.

I have always done my own graphics.

Hope you enjoyed the post. Have a wonderful weekend.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
