Monday Paint Classes ~
Had two fabulous paint classes on Monday.
We painted a really inexpensive welcome sign ($2.47 at Hobby Lobby).
Isn't it cute and so FALL!

The letters were cut out with the Cricut Machine. Okay, last year I thought I didn't have any use for this machine - well let me tell you that I now do and now own one! Thanks N!
I'm addicted to it and have so many ideas now!

Monday morning group ~

Jane ~ Mary Jo ~ Alice
Yes, you might notice that my regular Mon. a.m. student ~ Nicole~ is missing. She is on a business trip with her husband and while he attends meetings all day she is painting, painting, painting.

Mary Jo
Mary Jo also won the drawing and took home the project piece I painted in class.



Monday evening group



I had two drawings last night and Stacia won one project piece that I painted in class


Ellen won the other project piece I painted in class.




CRAFT ALERT ~ Looking for a quick, inexpensive, adorable craft to make for a craft fair or church bazaar? These could not be more simple to make.

Michael's has these adorable rub-ons and this week I believe they are 25% off. They also sell round flat ornaments (these are different ornaments here) but they are round. How cute are these snowmen with only the faces on them. Great thing is you can take a paint marker and personalize the other side with a baby's name, family name, the year, etc.!

I'm creating like crazy for a blog swap I signed up for in July ~ where has the time gone?!?!? I will share those creations with you once I've finished with them.

Have a fabulous tuesday.

The ornaments are precious. Planning on doing some house cleaning and painting this weekend so I'll post what I get done. LOVE your window in the header! See you Saturday for HD...CAN'T WAIT!!!!!
