Come follow my journey! I have no official art training and no real connections to get me into the art world. I am 36 years young and my dream is to become an artist, not just someone who makes art in their basement, but someone who successfully sells their art, and I will not give up on that dream! I would love to break into the world of mixed media art and maybe even have galley shows someday!

Well, Hello There!

Wow it's been an age since I posted last! Thanks to who started a mixed media group on facebook, I was inspired to come and visit my friends in my little art world and give you all an update. I'll try to make it short, one because honestly no one ever cares about the minute details of other peoples lives and two, I just took a 3 hour midterm and I need a nap!

We finally got everything moved to the new house. I keep asking everyone how could we have moved from a 1000 sq. ft. home to a 2200 sq ft house and still not have enough room??? I really do think i had every nook and cranny of our old place packed with stuff! So I have all of my beloved books and most of my art supplies out in the garage and I still have boxes of extra bathroom stuff, memorabilia and boxes of sheets and blankets in our bedroom.

Oh well! I am too busy to care.

I have been very very grateful to have a dishwasher!

I am annoyed however, that all the plans and dreams we had when we moved have not quite materialized which I did have a sneaking suspicion might happen due to the many shows on HGTV where the people featured say "well we had planned to do that when we moved..... and here HGTV was having to come and help them out 10 years later! I just did not want that to be us.


We did get beautiful furniture...

It looks a bit better now since we got the new TV and some decorations!

We painted all three bedrooms, part of our bathroom the guest bath and part of the kitchen. I still need to take pics of those. I'm pretty proud of the kitchen even though it's only one wall and it's not perfect. it's a creamy yellow and I framed and hung up one of my favorite prints...
Above that is a deco style bon appetite kinda like this one...
No that's not my kitchen though!

we are trying to restore our 1918 Victrola to put in the living room, but we can't figure out what's wrong with it even after taking it apart and giving it a really good cleaning. :(


The kids have started their new schools and they both love it, thank goodness, and I am too because they ride the bus and the stop is just right down from our house!
There are also a bunch of kids in the neighborhood for them to play with which makes me really happy, but why do they all end up at our house........ ;)

My daughter is playing volley ball, which i love because I used to play it too! we are planning a halloween party- pics to come!, the fair is coming soon, my sons birthday is on October 19th and we have our good friends wedding next week. Whew we have been busy little bees!

And then there is nursing school...everything you hear about it is true! It's a killer and I'm not sure I will make it out alive!!! (^0^)

here's a couple good one I have seen on Pinterest and Facebook:

 All true!

And the absolute best news ever....
He asked me to marry him!!!


Take care of yourselves and I will see you all....uh....sometime!
