Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning.
Early morning has always been my favorite time of day - no matter how stressed or upset I may have been the night before, morning always brings clarity and hope to me. Perhaps I love morning because I was born in the early morning, but no matter, I always feel reborn every morning as I look out and see the sun rising. Everything will be okay!
I did this layout for http://whatisyourfavething.blogspot.com/ newest challenge - what is your favorite time of day? Do you love the early morning, are you a "twilight" kind of person, or are you a night owl? Perhaps your favorite time is when your family is all together or perhaps it's when you get some "me" time. Whatever, we want you to show us - you have 2 weeks until October 14th. I donated the prize this time - it is a set of Paper Trunk maybe baby papers (very cool in pinks and greens with a little yellow), matching Bazzill cardstock, 2 sets of letters, glitter, rub ons, buttons, ribbons, fabric pieces, some Prima and Heidi Swapp flowers, lots of funky little things from my stash that I thought went totally with these papers, and some handmade fabric flowers, straw flowers, and embroidered felt hearts. I had lots of fun putting this all together!
I started my new intermediate watercolor class today - whoa! I feel like a beginner again! but the teacher is very stimulating and I have to admit even though today was all lecture, I learned a lot. I have lots of homework - by next Wednesday I have to have wetted down the paper, stapled it to plywood, and completely drawn out the subject we are doing, which is a Pacific coast beach scene. Tomorrow I have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get the plywood - I don't have anything big enough as this is going to be a BIG painting.
I also then had to go in to the gift shop to do some work as today is the last day of our business fiscal year, so it's been a busy day.
