Busy Busy Busy time of Year!
Oh my, that is an understatement isn't it?

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was nice and quiet with my younger sister and her family over for a lovely meal. We actually threw the pies out after they left because we didn't want to sit around and eat pie for days after. My greatest feat was that I finally after 18 years made turkey gravy like my moms!! It was so yummy and for the first time in 18 years wasn't lumpy!

Yesterday I spent the day with a good friend of mine up at Plaid in Atlanta. It was awesome to see a lot of creating going on! I unfortunately left my camera up there though and won't get it back until next week when I go to Florida.

I had two fabulous classes on Monday and will post my second class photos late next week since those pics are still on my camera card. We painted this landscape and I love the way it turned out. We put a piece of contact paper over the canvas and cut an oval out of the middle - painted out landscape and lifted the contact paper to be left with crisp edges in the shape of an oval.
This was Karen's first class with me and she did such a fabulous job!
Have a fabulous day!
