Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine - not as productive as I would have liked but some days are like that huh?

Usually when I have a lot of things to do/finish I find something completely different to work on or do! Do you do that? Drives me crazy sometimes but I love what comes out of the diversion. I needed to work on some painting classes and instead decided to create a wreath for my door. I purchased one in February from a local artist and it was gorgeous but it took up my entire door and matched absolutely nothing in my house - impulse purchase! So, luckily my bowling partner wanted it!
I wanted to create something with the flowers I already had stored in a closet - I usually switch out flowers in my vases etc. for the seasons and I had so many shoved in a closet I was determined to not purchase any more until I did something with the ones I had. So, this is what I ended up with - have to admit I'm impressed with my bow - not something I'm that good at making but I think it works! The sweet peas are from some great bloggin friends from Australia ~ wish they were still bloggin! Miss them!




We painted this month too ~ hibiscus and we have magnolias coming up this week and camellias later in the month. Where is this month going? My boys only have 25 days left in the school year and it's flying by!

Barb
In our Studio Clay class we created daisies, bees and ladybugs.














Mert
This was Merts first class and Barb drew her name so she got to take home the things I created with them in class!
I met Mert at the Spring Home & Garden show and she was so impressed with the clay that she signed up to learn how to do it!! Like me she has to have ALL the stuff so she's gonna be up and running soon with all the fabulous clay tools, clay and supplies to start making her own things!!








Barb
Have I mentioned lately how awesome Barb looks - if you look at pictures past you will notice her weight loss! She is such an inspiration and looks fabulous! Regardless of how she looks on the outside - she's even more beautiful on the inside! Big heart! Such a sweetie and so enjoy having her in class!









Jennifer
I had a blast sharing some one on one time with Jennifer painting before the clay class on Saturday. She was good about continuing to paint while I talked talked and talked!
Well, have you tweeted yet? Have heard of all the people tweeting on twitter so decided I needed one more thing - like I have the time - hehehe - so I joined Twitter!
Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
Sandy

Hi Sandy,
Thanks for visiting me.
Yes I do that sometimes, need to do something, and find something completely different.
Love the front door, and your students work.
You have a good week too!
