Good Morning

 Fall has arrived with a vengeance in Michigan. Temps dropped and we had tons of rain. However we have a nice week coming up with temps in the 70s. The leaves are starting to turn. This is my favorite time of year! 

I have had a chance to do some scrapbooking and a bit of painting. 

My grandkids have birthdays about 5 weeks apart and last year we celebrated them together. Reilly was 2 Cool and Lauren was UnFOURgettable. 

Here are a couple of mixed media canvases. Love using so many of the supplies I have for these. 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Adding this to PaintPartyFriday. Please visit all of the wonderful artists who share over there. 

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words!

Thank You

 I need to thank all of you for the lovely comments on my art! And, I want to thank all of the customers who purchased something. I had a banner day -  selling probably 40 cards, a couple of original paintings and a canvas. The art group had its best show ever! 

I will need to start painting for the next show but that is not until November so I have some time. 

In the meantime, I scrapped! It seems like it has been so long since I did that. 

My grandson does not go anywhere without a handful of trains. The floor is filled with endless stretches of track. My granddaughter collects babies, he collects trains:) 

This paper from Echo Park was just perfect! And the chipboard trains look just like his!

Here's to the Weekend

 Congratulations everyone! You made it to Friday! 

We enjoyed a few days at the cottage last weekend. Believe it or not, a few trees are starting to turn! I love the mist on the lake first thing in the morning! 

I spent the rest of the week for the big Art Group sale tomorrow. I have original pieces, cards, canvases and more. 

I think I am ready except for gathering a few miscellaneous supplies today. 

I did finish this pumpkin. I struggled a bit  with it but think it is done. 

Wishing each of you a wonderful weekend! Adding this to PaintPartyFriday! Please visit all the wonderful blogs of artists who post over there. So inspirational!

Thank you for your kind words. They mean more to me than you know.

Have a safe and healthy weekend.

Friday again

 Here we are at Friday once again. Had another busy week subbing at school. The kids are settling in and getting used to the routines. I have not had a lot of time to get ready for next week's art show. That is on the agenda for this week.

I have been on a birch tree kick

Hoping these will do well at the sale:)
