Catching Up!

Well, the "skinny" is that I have taken on more mediums here as of late. When I was in college I used to paint portraits for extra money when I could. I love working with acrylic paints and dabble in oil. I have also been doing more flower pounding on canvas as well. It seems I never keep my flower pounding. Those creations are always given as gifts or close friends and relatives ask for them. One of my favorite things is do dabble in doodleart. They are always fun. I have been stretching some old canvas from a bolt that has been in its box for over 2 years and I never knew how much I enjoyed it. I plan on making odd sizes and incorporating my scrappy supplies within my painting. We shall see how committed I am to making all of this work within my already kinda crazy schedule. School will be starting soon and I will definitely have more time to play during the day.
I am already grieving for a scrappy friend. She is heading off to Mississippi in two weeks as a long term move with her family of 11 1/2....(baby #10 is on the way). She is a very clean scrapbooker and I just simply love talking to her. We share our ideas and beliefs just about on every single subject. However, this move is a positive move for their family and I wish them the best of luck. I am so happy my long distance is free!

CHA-Summer in Chicago is under full swing right now and I have been stalking the Making Memories Blog all day yesterday in hopes of possibly getting lucky enough to be chosen for some free product. Their papers are always a favorite of mine and the embellishments are just to die for! I always tend to buy their products in vast supply. This is one company that I just do not buy one of each...
Hard to believe last week this time was our last day on our vacation. We all have great tans and a week filled with incredible memories. The beach is definitely where we plan on retiring when it is the time. We love the water and yes, the heat! There is nothing like boating and the feel of salt water spray.
I hope to be uploading some eye candy soon. Until then...have a creative day!

Hey great to see that you are blogging again. Can't believe oyu have time to do other things. I barely have time to scrap some times. Hopefully we can get together some time soon.
