My gorgeous son drew names again for me and the

Amy P for the HOME Canvas & Sandi McBride for the pansy tray.

Ladies, please email me your mailing address so that I can get these out to you this week before the holidays.

Saturday paint classes

We painted a calendar with the flowers of the months. Every one did such an amazing job with the very fast pace of this class. There was a lot of information to learn and then paint!


Then some of the ladies did classes back to back and we painted the deer landscape that I had taught earlier in the month.




I just had to share this!
I got this lovely in the mail and I have to tell you it was beautiful in Sharon's Etsy store and it is even more gorgeous in person. Sharon is an amazing mixed medium artist and one of my the very first people I met when I started bloggin! She was so helpful with all those little details you aren't sure of when you first start this awesome thing called bloggin!

Thank you Sharon! I have found the perfect place for it in my studio. Ya'll make sure to go on over and check out Sharon's blog here.

Haven't had a puppy update in a long while so here it goes.
Becks has become quite the jumper and loves to jump up and sleep on the couch. Not a great thing for daschunds to do with their backs being so long but he insists! Poor Posh is such a porker making it impossible for her to jump up on the couch ~ so she resorts to my studio where she has a rather large plush pillow to sleep on. They've also discovered squirrels. With the heat wave we've been having lately down here in GA the squirrels are out in droves. Becks would spend the day outside sniffing every little last spot they've been too! It's rather comical to watch him but would make you dizzy after 5 minutes of watching him race back and forth and sniffing like a blood hound.


This is the kids last week in school before the holidays so I've got 3 days to get all of my unfinished shopping done!!
Have a fantastic week!

Hi there! I'm playing "catch up" on my blog reading tonight and it's been fun reading all of your posts I missed while on my trip. Girl, you've really been busy!!! I've loved seeing what your classes have been working on, what Posh and Becks are up to, and seeing all your Christmas decorations. I loved the stockings and ornaments.

We enjoyed our trip, but now I'm frantically trying to get caught up!

Christmas hugs!

Terri and Bob said...

Congrats to all of you! Isn't it cool that Sandi's grandmother loved pansies?? I love their sweet faces!
