Painting Cruise to Cozumel
I had a fabulous time on the painting cruise to Cozumel.  It was actually a birthday painting cruise as my friend Donna celebrated her birthday while on the cruise as did her grandson Christain and a couple of other ladies that were painting with us.

Loved all the cool food art on display in the Windjammer Cafe where we ate breakfast and lunch.

The first night we were there we listened to a fabulous band and danced and then it was time for karaoke.

Lori singing ~ I've got a brand new pair of rollerskates

Peter & Donna - he made her this amazing bowl out of 7 different woods all stained but kept to their original colors - it was stunning!

First day of painting!   Sunsets on fabric tote bags, botanical leaves and orchids on RocLon placemats and coasters and then a fabulous water bottle coozie.  HD Palm tree that was bright, bold and lots of fun!

Some of us went to the formal dinner night with our face painted with Donna's new facepaint!

Nancy had a butterfly painted on her face and wore the most gorgeous dress with butterflies on it.

my lips were so chapped from the wind

Our boat - docked in Cozumel
The seas were rough Thursday night and all day Friday. Someone on board said they were 12 foot high at times and let me tell you we all felt it! Some sick all day Friday to include myself.  I was very happy to get on some land and have some warm decent weather!

Second full day of painting
Donna taught everyone two very cool projects - ferns and leaves in a muted background with two beautiful and bright parrots and then a floral project with bird of paradise.

For the 4 nights we were there we had two animals on our beds when we returned to our rooms - a monkey and elephant.

It sure was nice to get home to my hubby and boys! The house was cleaned (spotless) they missed me bunches which is always nice and we ordered Chinese takeout so I didn't have to cook when I got home! 

Our room extension is finished! I'm loving the room - but I haven't had a chance to move much in yet as I'm busy getting ready for my paint classes this month and the one BIG event I do each year - Mistletoe Market in Perry, GA.  It's next week ~ we'll be setting up on my birthday and then the event is Nov. 19-21.

Finally got rid of my sea legs today which was nice - was tired of feeling like I was still on that boat rocking back and forth.

Have a great day!
