Week full of painting fun, an award and a giveaway!

This past week started out with painting Johnny Jump Ups which is in the Viola family and looks like a tiny pansy. It was a mother daughter class - not planned - but worked out that way!

Sue and her daughter came to their very first class

and did such a fabulous job on their projects.


Kim and her daughter Stephanie

Wednesday we painted cherries on glass and silly me forgot to take my camera so I asked the ladies to send me their pictures. I got one -


(thanks for sending me the picture Jenny!)

Saturday we had two fun filled classes

We painted cherries in the first and we added a project piece to the class so that the ladies could see the difference of painting on glass and paper mache.




This was Debi's first class with me.



This was Patti's first class with me as well!

Our second class on Saturday was the High Definition Calla Lilies class







Sandi over at Holding Patterns gave me this fabulous award! Thanks Sandi.

Summertime sure is flying by and it's hard to believe that my kids are going back to school in a week and a half. Okay, have to get off this computer and get ready for church!
Have a fabulous week. I have a couple painting classes this week and will hopefully get some creating in myself at home ~ I've been working on some ornaments for a show I'm doing with a friend in November - will hopefully get some good pictures of those and share with you this week!

Have a wonderful day.

Class was fun Sandy but it was sure hard. Kenny said it looked fine then I showed him the folder and he said "Oh" then we cracked up laughing. Have a great week!
