FINALLY PUTTING PAINT TO BRUSH!


After 2 months off and numerous doctors' visits, I finally got back into the swing of things this weekend. I have been feeling great and I was determined to put some expressions on these naked snowman, no matter what. They have been sitting on my shelf for almost 3 months and it was time. With all the snow around me, it was a perfect scene to get me in the mood for some snow people.
So I woke up ready on Saturday with a plan. Get all the last minute things you need for the Super Bowl in the morning. (Can you all shout "chicken wings"!) Get the laundry done. Clean the bathroom. Get Julia dressed for a 2:00 birthday party.
Then relax.......hubby will take Julia to the party and I wlll have 2 hours to noodle around painting and organizing future projects.
Ta Da! My snow people have faces. Finally! Their is still more to do...rubbing in some detail and aging, embellishments, mica flakes and what nots, but at least I got started. Feels good.

As for the Super Bowl, the chicken wings were a big hit, the game was OK (no Patriots, so sad!), the commercials were OK, the music was boring, but I was glad to see Green Bay win. They finally made it happen without Favre and they can move on. Congrats.
Although I secreting have a crush on the Steelers coach Mike Tomlin......so cute! sssshhhh, don't tell. LOL

  1. Look how cute they are and I'm loving that elf in the background!

    I'm SO happy for you that you got time to yourself for art. I've been craving that time too. Isn't it a great feeling?

    As for the Superbowl, I was busy needlefelting but would hear comments from my husband in the other room, which gave me an idea of what was going on. That was enough for me!

  3. Jill - it is soooooooooo great to get back into the swing of things. :) I get cranky when I can't get my hands dirty.
    The Elf in the background was a gift from my friend Kelly. She is amazingly talented. I keep him staring at me while I work because he makes me giggle.

  4. Amber, by table is never this clean! After a couple of months off, the table was nice and neat and I didn't paint long eneough Saturday to do too much damage. Give me another day or two, and it will be back to "normal" - I work better in a mess :)
