Happy Friday!



Hello Friends,
Another week is over....where does the time go???? I'm sorry I haven't been posting as much as usual but I've got a lot little fires burning here and there and I've been trying to put them out. One major fire was selling a "Princess Tea Party" business my sister and I had but couldn't manage to find the time to do. Luckily it's going to a good home in Reading, PA.!
The second fire is 5 paintings I need to finish to send out to a boutique in Kentucky. The two pictures I've posted are all I've been able to complete this week. I was having a bit of "artist's block" but I think I'm recovered now:) Sometimes all it takes is a day off. All of that thinking and trying burns you out! I will have prints of these paintings in my shop hopefully some time next week. I'll keep you posted.
The third fire consists of 3 custom paintings I have pending. I hope to get to the sketches this weekend and maybe I'll give you all a little peek.
On a completely different subject.....if anyone is interested in "composting" their household fruit and veggie scraps, visit my sisters blog for the "Wednesday Eco Tip". We both compost but she has a fancy bin where I have a pile hidden in my backyard. Both work equally well and we are reducing the amount of waste we send to our landfill. Plus the stuff is GREAT for your flowerbeds. I just toss all of my fruit and vegetable scraps, tea bags (worms love these) , coffee grounds, clean egg shells....you name it. Even shredded newspaper sometimes. Add fall dried leaves and all of the dead plants after your spring clean up and you've got yourself some terrific fertilizer. And it didn't cost a thing!
Have a great weekend!
