Back at TAPS...

...and loving it.  The theme this week was Crazy Creston, and it was another afternoon of laughter and fun.


I particularly enjoyed the camaraderie around the table as some of the participants worked together to create these wild and wacky collages.


It was obvious that they enjoyed not only the process but the results.



So many of them likened the experience of collage as a 'return to kindergarten', and they certainly looked like a bunch of happy children as they finished.


How this delightful woman managed to work upside down as her partner across the table gave her directions is beyond me!


 I'm loving that multi-storied building in this young woman's collage!


 Each collage had their own style and flavour,


and some of them generated a whole lot of monkey business.  See the two nearly nude men in this one?


It was a delight to watch them work and see their final results.  Unfortunately, I seem to have missed a few participants and their work in the photo-taking department.  Fire the photographer, I say!


I can see there's a strong possibility of repeat action on collaging - they all took to it like the proverbial ducks to water.


Naturally, I'm now (again) hooked on collage, and will be adding that to some of my journals over the next while.  It's such an ongoing inspiration to play with others, isn't it?

  6. Just look at those smiles! I love how you pull together people from all walks of life and give them the gift of creating, Win! Just wonderful!

  7. While I'd love to take credit for the pulling together, that's actually the whole concept of the TAPS program, and one I think is just fabulous. They are an amazing group, whose sole intent it to keep seniors in their own homes as long as possible, bringing them together for meals and socialization. Terrific concept, and they have a great time!
