More paint class photos from this week ~

Had two more paint classes since I last posted!




Today we painted strawberries on a wooden tray



Nicole













Dale

This was her first class with me and she did a beautiful job!



















Anne

Today was Anne's first class and just like her friend Dale~ she jumped right in and did a fabulous job on her tray.

























Barb

















Monday evening we painted the seahorse, starfish and seashells box again.

Barbara (Shannon's mom)

This was her first class and didn't she do well!
She has a beach house and was excited to do this project
so that she could put this in the house.
















Shannon

This was Shannon's first class as well and it was obvious that she's painted before! She did a super job.





















Kim





















Ellen's



Dawn























Barb




















I recieved my box today from my For Love Of Supplies Swap (hosted by Artsymama) Swap Partner ~ Amy. Click on her name to go check out her blog. WOW and DOUBLE WOW! I got some amazing supplies not to mention the vintage candy box that they came in! WOW!!! I had so much fun looking through it all and can't wait to create with the supplies!!! THANK YOU AMY!!! You outdid yourself and spoiled me big time. She also created a beautiful Valentine for me.

















































I finally got a box big enough to mail Amy's today so will get hers mailed off tomorrow!


Had my bowing league yesterday - bowled a 165, 145, and 158.

We're having sleet/freezing rain here now -they cancelled my sons basketball game tonight because of it. My boys would love to wake up with 6 inches of snow on the ground!!! They sure do miss the winters we had when we lived in Nebraska - we even got snow in England but down here in the South ~ not likely I've told them ~ however, they are still hopefull.
Well, have to get dinner going! Have an outstanding day!

Blessings,
Sandy

We're supposed to have very cold temps tomorrow with an ever-so-slight chance of a "wintry snow mix". I'm all for it. Which means we'll probably have sunshine and highs of 75. lol

Hope your winter blues leave soon. Seems like everyone's got them, though. I wish I could figure out what happened this year...I don't remember ever feeling this BLAH after the holidays...I've just about decided to stop fighting my negative attitude and REVEL in it, instead! In other words, I'm thinking I'm going to blab..er, I mean BLOG...about every rotten little thing that happens to me until absolutely everyone on the planet decides to hire a hitman to do me in. I'm going to practice the old adage "Misery loves company" and just keep "inviting" everyone into my miserable little existence until all of ya'll are sick to death of hearing about my negative feelings. THAT'LL show you guys, huh? lol

Here's hoping for a better February!!!!
