Finally an update!
I've been busy busy busy and have lots to share.
First off, my hubby is now officially retired from the USAF! He served 22 years and this is a new phase in our life - retirees.

Last week when I was at paint class my hubby took this adorable picture of our pups - Posh & Becks - aren't they cute?

Last Saturday we painted this adorable snowman with sweet treats. It's painted on a canvas board and is intended to be used as a placemat.

Sherry made another lace place with red and green and I just had to take a picture of her with it. Love the colors on it!

Today we painted ornaments! We painted poinsettias, evergreen sprigs, pinecones, holly and berries, snowmen and rosebuds. We had so much fun and I'm sure these ladies will be giving away boxes of oranments as gifts this year.








This was Ambers first class with me and she did a fabulous job. She also won the drawing and got to take home the ornaments that I painted in class.

Tomorrow is a big day in our country. I haven't really talked much about it - been praying a lot about it and will leave it at that. Have a great day!

You did good, girl! Loved that I had 2 classes in the last 3 days, too! However, I can't believe I won't have another class for 2 whole weeks! I hope you have a great time next week. Hugs, Kim

Sandy, you have way too much fun in your classes! I wish I could come paint in one of them --- alas, you are too far away. I love the painted ornaments and everyone has such a pretty smile on their face!
