The one about making faces

That's so "Amelia".
I took this picture because the girls looked cute sitting with their Daddy, watching tv....

But Amelia notices me....

Everyone knows the further you pull down on that lip, the more attention you get. :P

The one about the calendar page


We had our monthly art meeting last night and I am still high from getting together and having fun (or maybe it was the lethal combination of Coke Zero and a huge piece of the most amazing decadent chocolate cake I have ever eaten!)

I got my original February artwork back last night from our calendar collaboration, and I now have my copy of our 2008 calendar full of art made by my friends in my art group! The finished product exceeded our expectations!

I would love to give my February artwork a home and know that it is being enjoyed somewhere. It would probably just end up stored away if I kept it, and what good is that? LOL

I have just listed it in my Etsy shop HERE.
Now that we are experts at this artful calendar-making thing, we are going to pull out all the stops and make one to sell for 2009!

The one about the Valentine artwork

Valentine artwork on clearance HERE
These three original artwork listings are about to expire and I won't be relisting them. They have been marked down 50%.
woo hoo!!!

The one about Play-Doh

Am I weird? I think it would be cool to have THIS.

Amelia gave me a couple of play-doh cookies and they are sitting here. I can smell them and I remembered that you could buy that smell!

the one about the clean kitchen

My kitchen is SO CLEAN....
and I am not the one who had to clean it.
and they did all the deep cleaning jobs that I hate doing. :)

I am out 60 bucks but it was worth it. But that's what etsy shops are for. At least mine is. hee hee

The one about the new year

Austin had been bugging me for weeks to get some Martinelli's for New Years Eve. He thought it was cool drinking the last little bit from the bottle. Then he asked if he could go outside and break the bottle. um...no.
I bought a new calendar today for the fridge and got out my Designing With 2008 calendar so I am all set. I drank too many Coke Zeros tonight (they are just so yummy!!!) and can't go to sleep so here I am.
Have been thinking about 2007 and some highlights of the year for me. (in no particular order)
  • Taught at Sparkle Bella with Teresa McFayden, Kim Kwan and Carolyn Peeler.
  • quit using Aquanet hairspray. LOL
  • Visited Hawaii for the first time.
  • Lost nearly 30 pounds.
  • Became a part of a wonderful circle of local mixed media artists. Love those ladies! They are a blessing.
  • Started an Etsy shop
  • Quit Curves and joined Contours Express. SO much better for many reasons! I have a hint of square shoulders for the first time EVER.
  • taught art twice in Savannah's first grade class.

I am not a new year's resolutions kind of person....you can start a new goal at ANY time, I figure.

In 2008 I want to:

  • Be even more involved in my kids' classrooms, since Amelia will be starting Kindergarten (yeah for that!!) and I won't need to haul her around with me to their classes, which is not fun (whole 'nother story) LOL.
  • Lose 35 more pounds. I'm gonna do it--I have to.
  • Start scrapbooking again. I have so many memories and photos piled up. It's disgraceful.
  • Get a handle on my cluttered house and disorganized life (i'm a train wreck!!), like I USED TO BE before we moved five years ago. sheesh!
  • and a few more personal things I don't wish to share here ;)
