Spring is in the air!

Here are some of the things we've done in paint class this month.

I also showed some how-to steps on Donna's TV show that will air in April - will keep you posted on when it starts to air - if you aren't in the local Orlando area you can watch it on the computer.








This was Julia's first class with me and she is so sweet! Always giving me sweet compliments and I just adore her!


This was Sue's first class as well and she did such a beautiful job!

I've been playing with clay ~ need to be playing more with clay as I have a show coming up the beginning of April!


Orange Poppy

In our first of two clay classes this month we created clay pansies ~ aren't they just gorgeous!

I'm Home!

I had so much fun in Florida but it's nice to be home with my family!! I went to a painting certification and learned so much! April N. from California was our instructor and she is an incredible person and such a talented artist.

Then I got the pleasure of taping with my friend on her TV show. I'll post when they go live online with the new shows ~ I was so nervous but ended up having the BEST time! You can check out Donna's show online at http://www.whdotv.com/ it's an Orlando station that is shown on TV in the local Orlando area but online everwhere else. It's a live feed so you have to look at the schedule to see when Create with Donna is on and then click on the screen. Anyway, it's was awesome to create and be INSPIRED and just hang out and have fun. Then we attended a Healthy Chocolate event which was fun to meet some of the people whose names I've heard but haven't met before. It was also cool to hear that the Candian govt. has labeled the product with all the health benefits of the product - something I hear takes a long time to have done but they saw the incredible benefits of the product and listed it as such! Totally cool. If you don't know what I'm talking about you can click on the Healthy Chocolate link on my sidebar and learn about the yummy chocolate that has the top two antioxidants on the planet.

With my hubbys help all of my laundry is done from my 10 day trip but now I have to attack the studio and all the fun stuff I brought home from my certification and all the goodies I took down to demonstrate on Donna's show. Some I haven't posted yet so I'll try and get those together and get pictures up.

SPRING SPRUNG while I was gone. I was gone 10 days and in that time I came home to blooming trees and bees and bugs buzzing around ( I don't like that part of SPRING). Hubby took all the plants out of the garage and put them back on the porch and the curb appeal has returned! Yippee. My front porch was looking so bare and plain and I'm ready for VIBRANT colors to bloom and pretty it up even more.

Hope you have a fabulously INSPIRATIONAL day ~ be inspired & inspire others!!

Blessings, Sandy

OMGoodness ~ It's SNOWING!

Hard to believe that we are having snow like this in middle Georgia and my boys were absolutely thrilled! My doggies on the other hand were not and didn't want to have anything to do with going outside.

The boys couldn't resist going out to play in it and since it wasn't accumalating enough for them to build a snowman they played ball. Well, two of them did and my youngest just ran around with his tongue out ~ have I mentioned lately that he's the comic relief in our family?!

Kendall can't go anywhere without his phone ~ chatting with his girlfriend I'm sure.

Friday in paint class we painted Indian Blanket Flowers and I just love the way they turned out.


Amberly & Cara
This was their first class with me and they were both so much fun to have in class.




Yesterday I taught a class that a couple of my students
set up to hold at their church. We had so much fun and
these ladies were super sweet. We were in the middle of
terrible storms, tornado watches/warnings, etc. and got
several calls during the class keeping us posted on the weather.

I've been getting ready for my upcoming trip and still have so much to do! I can't wait to post some of the things I painted and created but that will have to wait until I get back home. Have a great week!
