Wednesday Paint Classes ~
I know I've been lame in updating my blog ~ sorry ~ been busy!
We painted cards yesterday in paint class.
My classes for the next couple months are geared around gift giving! We painted 5 different cards so that they could be scanned and printed off the original and given as gifts either for Christmas or throughout the year.
We decided to not write on our cards in class but I recommended printing the text off the computer and use carbon paper to transfer the words - and then paint them. IT is much easier to make sure they are straight, spaced correctly and there will be enough room for the words and not have them squeezed into each other.
You'll be seeing lots more pictures this month as I have a record high "69" students in Oct. ~ Plus 2 classes with HL employees for another 11 students ~ for 80 total.
WOW, what a difference a year makes. I started teaching classes at HL last October and started with 6 students that entire month. I've been so blessed to not only get to share my passion for painting with these students but also getting to know them and building friendships!
Here are some pics from my weekend with Nicole at the Oliver Hardy Festival in Harlem, GA. We did very well for it being our first fair and we've since signed up for two more! We're on the waiting list for the big fair here in Macon and are really hoping to get in!
I got a new camera - "an early birthday present" from my hubby!
It's a Canon PowerShot A720 IS and is so totally awesome! It is so much lighter than my other camera too which is great! Now, I have to learn what I can do with it. I tried taking a picture of it with my old camera - but it was too blurry to post ~ good timing for the new camera!!
We're attending my husbands 25th high school reunion this weekend. I'm nervous about it - won't know anyone but my hubby and I'm sure he's gonna want to mingle. We were overseas for his 10th and for his 20th he came back from England to attend that by himself. He gave me a budget to spend on my new outfit to go with his stylish new suit that he purchased this past weekend and in true Sandy style ~ my first thought was...
I'll spend $50.00 on a dress, wear some shoes I already have and go to the Coach outlet and get a $350.00 bag ~ HEHEHE! I'll share pictures with you after the weekend!

Just found this site ~ It makes the coolest names with all different kinds of letters. You can go to the bottom of my blog and see mine. If you click on the letters once your name comes up you can change the style of letters. http://metaatem.net/words/
