|Drying teabags on fabric.|
I spent some time in the kitchen today preparing for this summer's family art project.
|Teabags waiting for the boiling water.|

|Why waste tea? The teabags are drying on cloth and more cloth is soaking in the tea.|
Every summer, I put on my artistic thinking cap and come up with a project to share with my nieces and nephew and other family members.
In the past we've:
- made Jazzy dolls
- created woven bags on an innovative loom (my design) for collecting summer treasures
- painted and sun printed silk scarves and created story bags
- printed fabric squares for a 60th anniversary hanging

My plan is for all of us to make little books using teabags for pages. We'll collect small leaves and other nature textures and print on the teabags. The covers will be made from softened and painted brown paper. As usual, I'm already getting excited to see what my nieces and nephew do. They always surprise and amaze me!
