Scrapbooking at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Since I am a member of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, every March is member appreciation month. They open up a cafe just for members and we get free tea and coffee. I hadn't taken advantage of it much this month, so I decided to go on Sunday. I figured I'd go enjoy some tea and coffee, while working on my scrapbook pages for my library display that is coming up in May. I managed to get a few pages done.

I also made postcards, they had watercolour palets sitting out. I made these two thank you cards for two of my friends that donated to my fundraiser. This is also dedicated to Janie.

I also viewed the watercolour exhibit. There was a painting in the exhibit of children ice skating in Central Park (NYC). One of the children fell and I said to the guy standing next to me, "this scene looks familiar! This was me last month!" We got into a back and forth about ice skating, the cost of medical treatment, and we laughed. It felt great to talk about a painting for fifteen minutes. The rest of the exhibit was amazing too. I loved the floral paintings, but also the one watercolour of cats. The only pictures I snuck in were of watercolour sketchbooks. I thought they were neat and I should start one.

It was a great three hours at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I look forward to going on Friday night for their Art After 5. Since I am saving money, I try to do things my memberships cover for free. 


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    What a great way to spend your spare time! Membership has its privileges, and you took advantage of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's offer to have tea in the cafe and pursue your scrapbooking hobby. I find it fun and challenging to arrange and rearrange elements on a page, to add and delete. Maybe that's why I enjoyed my job as a film and video producer, director and editor, and why I enjoy creating unique blog posts. The finished product gives me a sense of pride and satisfaction.

    Mrs. S and I appreciate a good art exhibit and you are only a short train ride away from venues that offer them year round. Lucky you!

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi, Shady,

      I know what you mean! I'd love to have a job like that too; maybe once I get to Toronto. Does one need to have a special degree to work in film and video? I would also be interested in radio.

      I don't know what I'd do if I didn't live near a museum! I would go crazy!

      I hope you have a good Saturday and weekend, dear friend!
