I have to say, creating the backgrounds is my favorite part :) Even though it's the messy part.
There is something I wanted to share with you all, if you haven't already seen it on Facebook. If you are a follower of mine you probably know that Catherine Scanlon is a dear friend of mine. I love her and am so proud of all her successes in the art industry over these past years. She is so talented and so deserving !
She is now in the process of opening her own studio of teaching... and it looks so amazing! It's called Merrymeeting Art House and you can see the site and some cool photos here.
On the side bar of her blog you can find links to her publications, to her online classes to where to buy her stamps and stencils ect. Cats blog Art From the Heart
Can you tell I'm kinda proud of her?? lol Well I am!! But what I really wanted to tell you about is her new printable planner for your "coloring pleasure". Oh my .. it's awesome!
Here is the link so you can check it out.
My Artful Life Planner
Other than making messes, it's been kind of a quite week. It's good to have a week like that now and then right?
This is one of the other projects I worked on a bit. I found this table at a Flea Market for $13. It was all just the brown wood. I knew what I wanted to do with it, I just dread painting. :( My friend Deb had this grey milk paint left over from a table that she had done, and kept encouraging me. I finally jumped it and did it. Actually the paint went on like a dream, and I love how the table turned out.
Still canning. Still week, some tomatoes for chili that have peppers, onions and garlic in them. And some jars of salsa.
We seem to be getting more yellow squash rather than regular zucchini. I've always used zucchini for baking but read that they can be used interchangeably, so I made these zucchini muffins with the yellow squash. They turned out great. Good to know.
Funny, after posting these photos I guess I did get more done this week than I thought. And I thought it was a uneventful slow week. lol.
Have a happy day my friends! Thank you so much for coming by!
