No, I haven't been recovering from all the celebrating on my birthday! And I didn't fall into a hole somewhere either. I just needed a little break for a few days. I've been really pushing myself to do art every day since the beginning of this year and I just needed some time to goof off....and that's what I did!
I have barely been in the studio the past couple of days! I did do some background painting on some pages in my new art journal and I clipped a few images from magazines but overall I have just been being lazy!
I have so many things coming up and, of course, believe it or not, Christmas is looming on the horizon! Every year I think I'll start early but I don't so maybe this year will be the exception. I'm at least thinking about it!!
Now on to my drawing. I looked at my comments from the giveaway post....there were 34 but two people left two comments each so I put the number at 32 and entered it into the random generator thingie....
Number four is the winner and that is Maureen! Be sure to email me your address, Maureen and let me know if there is a specific color you'd like me to use for the cover of your journal. I haven't made it yet and I'm waiting for some of the supplies which are on back order until the end of this month but I'll get it made as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone who participated and left me birthday messages.
I received so many emails, ecards, regular snail mail cards, and messages from facebook, and all the ning sites on my birthday....I was completely overwhelmed! Plus I also had cards and phone calls from my family, too. I had a great day. Thank you all for making it special.
Also, since I don't really have enough classes (!!!) HB gave me another one for my birthday! He said I could choose any class I wanted. I decided to purchase a class from Monica Zuniga....I chose "In My Garden." I love her art and am looking forward to doing this class with her. At this point I have only downloaded the videos. Haven't watched them yet. I have so many things going on right now I think I'll save this one for later on. Monica is very generous and offers her classes at 50% discount if you purchase them on your birthday! You must be a member of her ning site and register your birthday ahead of time but I think that's a terrific little gift.
Ok, I think that's all the stuff I have for today. Sorry, no art! But check back because I'm getting antsy to get back into the studio so I'm sure there will be something to show you soon.
Have fun today....TGIF!!!
