Here is some of the work she displayed, which my husband Lee had the presence of mind to photograph before the guests descended and pandemonium ensued.
And here is the artiste herself!
As if this wasn't enough fun for one day, Lee's brother, Robert, his wife, Barb, and Barb's daughter, Jane with her family came over. We watched the Bears game and ate pizza and minestrone soup. Everyone liked the soup, which was a recipe from the Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook (thank you, Angela!). It was a wonderful day!
