Happy News!

This is an invitation I am sending to our 5 oldest grand-kids.  I had the idea that we would invite them over to sleep outside in a tent. ( They are ages 2-4).  I didn't know what hubby would think of the idea, but he said "yeah, that sounds like fun!.   Luckily there will be an  air mattress for me.  My days of sleeping on the ground were over about 15 years ago.

In other news.  I found my workshop/retreat.  It really isn't a workshop, but it sounded like so much fun I just couldn't pass it up.

It is a ladies retreat hosted by Renee Lammers.   All you have to do is read the description and you will know exactly why I want to go!!  Besides the incredible price!  I already have my plane ticket.  Now, if I only knew how to paint plein air.  Ha!  Luckily we don't have to have any skill to go to this retreat.  But I think I will try and "bone up" with the weeks ahead.  If you are interested, you better hurry.  Only three spots left!

Here is a little copy I did from a picture in a magazine.  I won't even bother looking up who painted the original because there is NO chance that you would recognize it and call the art police.  Anyway it was someone who lived in the 1800's.

Anyway, I think the first rule of thumb will be to make sure my brushes are really clean before I start painting.

Hope life is treating you well.



  1. It sounds like a great idea and I love the card,I can just imagine their eyes lighting up!

  3. Your grand kids will loooove sleeping in the tent, children always do:-) And yes, a mattress is better, I wouldn't risk sleeping on the naked ground either LOL. Have fun !
