For now, here's three posts in one as a catch up...
When last I posted, I was working on a pencil portrait, and it's since been finished and delivered.
And of course, art class has been on going- we're two weeks into our current session and I had them do a Thanksgiving poster, filling the paper with a gratitude list and accompanying illustrations.
As always, they amazed me!
My own personal grattitude list this year included, my beautiful family, my home and garden, and my wonderful friends both in person and in bloglandia- I am SO very grateful for you all!
Even tho I haven't been around much, you are often in my thoughts...
Lastly, we always host Thanksgiving dinner, and I always use it as a motivation to freshen up the house with paint
and such. I'd been planning on touching up my turquoise stripes, when my hubby told me that he HATES turquoise, and could I please change the color! This is after 5 years of living with it and him never saying a word! I agreed to change the color, if we could keep the stripes (which I LOVE ;))
And here's a "before" picture:
And here's a teaser for an after...
I'm really happy with the end result, which I'll share soon. Along with our newly painted living room which did NOT work with the dining room! We're actually in the midst of finishing up on that today!
So for now, I'm off for a much belated visit to all my bloggity friends, then it's on to painting (walls today- and canvases next week ;)) and making more jams for the market......
because, I'm still oh so busy these days!
