Happy Valentine's Day!!

Over two weeks since a post ~ I know ~ I've been a bit busy and still haven't managed to balance my time like I need to to get everything done I need to get done or want to get done.

Here I am with my hubby - one of my favorite pictures of us! All dressed up to go to the only AF Birthday Ball we ever went to. He is my Valentine! He is my heart and I truly have been blessed to have someone that loves me as much as he does and makes a point to show me and spoil me every day! He is an awesome father too!! He is the absolute best & I'm one lucky girl to have him!!

Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this past week I had a Level 1 One Stroke Painting Certification where I got to certify these fabulous ladies to be One Stroke Instructors. We had so much fun and painted, painted, painted until I don't think any of us could paint anymore. We had to deal with some not so great weather either with lots of snow and ice and the travel for some was scary but they braved the roads and made it to complete the Certification.

Last week I also had a painting class where we painted a Silhouette that was done at the January Education Summit

Everyone LOVED this project! They all drew their project themselves without a pattern other then the shape of the birds which I think they all enjoyed!









At my evening class I had the most awesome pleasure to have one of my bloggin friends Kari from Just Livin' Large come to my class! We've chatted back and forth about the possibility of her coming into town and if she did she wanted to take a class - just so happened I had one and she got to come!! She is an absolute sweetheart and I really hope that her husband gets moved to WR! We'd have so much fun together! She brought me the sweetest gifts too and I think was amazed with her painting - since she had never painted before!! Then we had lunch after I bowled that next day and we chatted almost like we'd known each other for years! Guess we kinda did after reading each others blogs for at least that long huh?

Didn't she do an incredible job for not ever having painted before?!!!!





I also had a clay class where we made necklaces but I will share those photos later in month as I have another class during the same project and I don't want to ruin it for them!

Have a great week and Happy Valentine's Day!

I had THE BEST TIME in your art class. I finally got around to posting the pictures tonight (I've been so lazy since I returned home!).
You inspired me, though. I think I'm going to try and paint a few silouettes on my own one of these days. I think I can do it, if I can just remember your instructions. Thanks for providing the worksheet - it'll come in handy! :) I never thought I'd say this, but I'm kind pulling for Randey to move to WR with his job when the time comes instead of pushing him to find another one like I had been doing! (He still can't believe I've done such a 180 on this. lol)

Love the picture of you and your hubby - you both look so sophisticated. :)

Can't wait to see your next class project. Now I'll be able to picture exactly what it is I've missed out on. LOL

Visiting from Kari's... Yes, Kari did an amazing job for never having painted...I'm not sure that I believe that one. All the gals did a wonderful job as the paintings look great.
