It's oddly deflating to have someone come up to you and go. "Ooooo! What a wonderful skirt, where did you get it? I'd love to get one of those for my daughter!"

Am I dressing too young? Hmph.

It's oddly surprising and inflating to have a couple of the professional artists at the church ask me to go to a six hour workshop with a silk painter to create banners for the new sanctuary. They really want me to paint for them! Meep, though they did mention that they hadn't quite engineered how to hang them, yet. *grin* That certainly has changed my self-image...

... talking to Mom about the fact that they'd asked me was pretty cool, too. The workshop is during their visit here, and Mom saw it as an opportunity to have a bit more time with Jet. So that was good, too.
