Happy Birthday Carson

Happy 7th Birthday (yesterday) to my nephew Carson!!! We love ya! His mommy is my older sister and you can check out her blog here

Yesterday in paint class we painted wisteria and I just love the way everyones project turned out!






Sherry (daughter in law) and Roz her (mother in law)

Sherry won the drawing and got to take home the project piece I painted in class with them.

After class we stayed behind and painted roses - Jenny painted a rose box for her mom for mother's day and it was stunning!

I painted this one with Midnight Violet and Berry Wine for all my painting friends out there - have always struggled getting the red rose to look like a red rose and I think this color combo is perfect!

I got my mother's day present early from my hubby and boys!

It's a YUDU ~ have you heard of it?

It's a personal screen printing machine and I cannot wait to use it! I've been too busy to open the box but I will before the end of the week and share my photos with ya. My oldest son draws the most incredible guitars (and other things) and he asked if I could print those on a t-shirt for him - of course I will!

Off to bowling! Need a 200 game today!! Those have been too far and few these days! Went from having the highest average in the league to being 3rd and with only a few weeks left don't think I'll regain that title or prize money but like I tell myself every week - it's only a game!!

Have a fabulous day!

Your rose is GORGEOUS!!! I saw the YUDU online but haven't seen it in action. Can't wait to see what you create with it! The Wisteria is beautiful also.

Your rose is gorgeous!!!! I have been looking for the perfect red rose colors. I think you have found it for me. But who would have thought of violet?
Thanks for teaching us everything we don't know and can't find.
Have a blessed day!
