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
