But Jake took on the day with a brave smile on his face. We all walked him to school and he walked right through the doors without looking back! I just can't believe how much he's grown up....we are SO proud of you Jake!!!
and when Henry and I picked him up after school...he was playing with boys in his class!! yipppeeee!! I almost cried when a boy shouted "jake, come be on our team!!" The day was a success:):):)
so...I've been spending alot of time painting the past couple days and I am having SO much fun!! So far I have 8 new paintings!!! yippeeeee:) It feels so good to paint again and I'm oozing with ideas!!! I scouted out the local craft and art supply type stores around my neighborhood and found a Hobby Lobby...LOVED it! I've never been in one before! Then I went to Michaels hoping to restock on Sculpey and they were OUT! I'm freaking out without any clay. Dick Blick...you're next! Don't these stores know I have Lulettes to make!!?? :):):)
I'll start listing new goodies in the shop tomorrow, Wednesday the 20th! As I have time through the day, I'll get some new paintings up. If you miss out on any of the originals...I will be offering prints of almost all of them. Those will be in the shop next week:):):) I'm too all over the place with all the chaos in my house right now to plan an actual update...I hope you understand!!! BUT...I promise to keep you posted on what I'm listing so always check my blog for the latest info!!
I'll leave you with a few photos of the crazy move...
Here you have the boys "helping" me fold the 8 tons of paper from our move for the recycling center...
A little corner of my life shoved into boxes... I was pretty excited about that little path I cleared to the right of this photo!!!
and lastly a photo of a very special commission piece I was working on up until the day I left NY! Seriously!! I painted this HUGE 80 inch round table top for some dear friends. Here is a photo of the final piece waiting to be sealed with lots of varnish...click on the picture to make it larger. It's really hard to photograph something this big, but there are 15 angels surrounding the outside with flowers and birds and cakes and tea...and 2 angels in the center surrounded by special sayings. I was just thrilled with the outcome and love the thought of their family and friends being together around my little angels:):):) Thank you Melanie and Andy!!!
p.s. Thank you for all the sweet thoughts and prayers for my family in Florida! Except for a roof leak...all is well!! yay!!!
