And the giveaway winner is.........


A Pocketful of Prettys!!!!!! Yay, Renea is the name picked randomly, with eyes closed, by my sweet hubby. She will be receiving the paper casting mold and I just know she will love it. Thanks to all of my great friends that sent me sweet comments and thanks again for reading my crazy little blog.

I am sorry that I had to wait so long to pick the winner, but we have had major remodeling work going on at our house. Hubs has replaced all the baseboard, painted several rooms, and de-constructed a really funky (read yucky) built-in shelving unit. He has patched, painted, and caulked. He removed all our old carpet and moon-walked (picture the lunar landing, not Michael Jackson) around the entire house, finding squeaks and fixing them. He has dragged and pushed and toted furniture, with very little help from me. (I seem to pull when I should push). I was able to keep us in good food and treats and clean clothes, while pretty much living out of the kitchen and the garage.

The carpet installers finished up yesterday and it was so worth it! The only thing now is, DH has been so busy getting ready, that now he can't seem to stop. Well, I guess I'll just have to have plenty of projects for him to do.

It will take some time to get everything back the way we want it. I plan on doing some serious downsizing in the art room. I already have a shoebox of goodies to take to the library this weekend for our art group (I hope someone can use some extra stuff). I was able to still find time to make some new jewelry and do some mixed media pieces while the remodeling was going on and am looking forward to getting back in the groove. I will be posting pictures soon of some new stuff, so be ready.

Well, keep on keeping on, folks and remember to make time to do the things you love. Maybe it's not art, maybe it's poetry or music or dancing or designing or gaming. Just know it's ok to take time to do your thing. I know I try to make time for these things. I certainly expect my darling hubby to, so I must expect the same from all of you. Just don't let it get to you. If it does, walk away and come back later.

No pressure, because we know art is easy. Why, it's so easy, it's just...
