They are finished!!!!!!

Here is a close up of my very last bird.

( It might be my favorite!)

Here they all are together.

A birds eye view!!

This is a piece that I just finished.

Here is the big blue canvas. I plan on having this hang above my

couch for a punch of color.

Oh no..... it is not finished.

I am going to have some collaged white trees through it

Talk to you soon!

The boys and I had some fun coloring eggs.

I love that they are still into these things. There will come a day

very soon when my heart will break and they will no longer get excited

for the little things.

In the midst of my bird craze..... I managed to refurbish this old drum

table. I should have taken a before pic. . Imagine a dull dark brown mucky

finish. I simply painted the bottom a gloss light green. I sanded the top and

put on a coat of shellac for shine. Super easy and I think

it looks great!

( the flowers are actually tissue paper. The boys made me some colorful buds

that I have in the bathroom. )

Talk to you soon!

2 and 0.....

It is really hard to get action shots without getting some of

the action cut out. I do love this picture. It is

my son sliding in at 3rd base.

Here he is sliding again at 2nd..... and yes SHOUT is my best


I love the angle of the fence with the dangling leg.

Talk to you soon!

Sneak peeks......

Here is a little peek at my birds......

I formed the birds from paper and foil and built the pedestals

from various wood pieces.

Let me know what you think.

Half way home.....

So I have about half of my CSA project complete. To those of you who are new , I must

create 25 small works of art for a local art center project. I have been

working since March .

I am feeling a bit better about it. Yesterday I was ready

to start completely over with a new idea.

Crazy talk!!!!

I was having a moment.

Things are better now , and I feel good about what I am doing.

How many of you just love the new show on Sunday night

called " Secrete Millionaire" ???

It makes me just want to do something to help......

Love it and can not make it through without crying.

Talk to you soon,
