So yesterday the boys and I went and saw Harry Potter. I'm a HUGE fan of the HP movies but hate to say that this was my least favorite. There were times I was thinking, "did the person in charge of editing forget to take a part out?". There were lulls? long periods of time that just seemed strange. Loved seeing how grown up they've all gotten but just wasn't too pleased with the final picture. It didn't help that someone decided to bring a child about 15 mths. old that was going up and down the stairs and causing all kinds of commotion and that the two teenage girls beside me couldn't last 2 hours without texting someone. Plus, on top of all of that I spent $26.00 on two popcorns and two sodas and found 2 hairs in the popcorn - can you say YUK!
I did take it back and got more but have to admit that I didn't eat another bite! The boys said it was good though.
I've been busy trying to get ready for classes since returning from vacation but haven't quite gotten into the grove of it yet. My sister called me today to see what I was doing and although I knew that I should have been doing about 1,000 other things more important, I was cleaning out my laundry room ~ top to bottom!
Here is something that I painted the other day though for my Monday and Wednesday classes ~ I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE this piece and was so pleased after I finished it! I cannot wait to teach this to my students.
I've been toying with the idea (and a few emails that have been sent to me asking me where my stuff can be purchased) to start an Etsy shop. I will hopefully get that up and running before the end of July so watch my side bar section for an update! What do you think?
Have an outstanding weekend!! Ciao.
