|Create a Village|
|Lime Green HeartHome|
One more week of school and I will be finished until August. I'm looking forward to getting into my studio and painting, drawings, and creating more village items. Check back often to see what I'm working on! For now, I'm looking forward to a 3 day weekend.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Hanging Birdhouse Hearthome
After the Dunwoody Art Festival last weekend, I had hoped to get some rest this week. But this week my 'day job'...was very busy! As always, the graduating Seniors finished up earlier than the rest of the high school students. Graduation is next Friday, so they had to take their finals last week. Which means the senior grades were also turned in...so between testing the seniors, turning in their grades and doing my usual lesson plans, class instructions, meetings, etc...etc...it was a busy, busy week. I'm very ready for the last week of school to get here! Fortunately we only have 14 more days, including finals! So it will be here soon.
For now, I will be listing several new houses,like the one above, in my Etsy store over the next couple of weeks. I hope to squeeze in some time to work on some new project ideas too. I get very cranky when I'm not able to work on some art projects, whether its clay, painting, or colored pencils. So I will definitely work it in somehow.
On a personal note...my daughter came home to visit this weekend. She seemed upset that I was out of town last weekend, on Mother's Day, so she decided to come home this weekend! Today we had some Mother/Daughter time that was very nice. She took me to to get a manicure and pedicure. She cannot believe that I have never had either before now! I've never really cared about having one before, but I really, really, REALLY enjoyed it! One thing that made it even more enjoyable was the massaging chair that we got to sit in during the pedicure! The whole proces of getting my feet and hands massaged and pampered was JUST what I needed! So this is definitely something that I will try to do again!
How do you pamper yourself? or pamper someone that you love? Hope you are having a blessed weekend!

|Setting up my booth at Dunwoody, Georgia|
|A colored pencil friend, Cathy, stopped by!|
There were 148 other artist booths in the show. I believe all of them were excellent at what they do! There were a few rookies there, like me, but many of the other artists were very helpful! They gave me lots of tips and suggestions on what I can to improve my booth. Which is definitely what I need to do.
Although we are looking for art festivals closer to home, we hope to return to Dunwoody next year. The festival was very well organized, with a lot of people coming through! So, thanks to Francis for inviting me to participate in the festival! I really appreciate your interest and support!
|My booth needs work, but he kids loved it because the houses were at their eye level!|
