Airbrushing with Copics

This is the newest card I have done with airbrushing. I love the challenge of the airbrushing and getting it to look even and consistent. I am coming along nicely with it and have gotten it down pat pretty well. This stamp is from Impression Obsession and I love them for many reasons: 1) They are great for airbrushing 2) They are great to watercolor, which i also love to do...and 3) the use of flower soft is very easy with these stamps.



I had a great weekend and enjoyed the nice weather. The girls have been to the pool several times now and the fires and smores have become a nightly thing as well as the extra kids in my house. Summer is here!


We have a trip planned to Pennsylvania next month. We have not been there in quite a few years. We will visit Hershey Park as well as Great Wolf again (a favorite of mine).


Hope your having a nice start to the summer.

Just a quick post.

This is my daughter. Sometimes I see photo's of her and she is so beautiful I can't believe she's mine. I was never pretty like her. Sometimes I wonder if she knows she is beautiful.

Love you Liv!.

I have received several inquiries about how the baby birds in the nest are doing. A week or so ago I thought they had left. But I looked again yesterday while working in the yard and they are all smooshed into the nest and when they heared the rustle of the bush and saw the camera lense they stuck their little beaks in the air. Mama bird was not at all happy with me doing this she was squawking up a storm.

Favorite time of the year.....
This is totally my favorite time of the year. If I could stop time right now I would and have it be this way all year long....everyday....
I haven't been doing too good slowing time down since getting back from Virginia. Didn't I make that decision to do that? Hummmm.......
School is winding down, summer hours at the store have kicked in, i feel like a new woman!
Wish I could hop on a plane for the weekend....maybe that is what I'll do when I grow up......

Hello Everyone!!!



Here is a little sneak peek at the "prototype" wreath project that we finished up this week. We are going to be teaching this class in the fall. We will be offering it in an Autumn and Holiday pattern. Stay tuned for our upcoming schedule. Our first FULL DAY crop will be held in July....lots of great stuff on the table for that event too. It's all very exciting and we are really psyched!!!!!!!


Chris and I had a great weekend of concerts. We saw Julianne Hough, Blake Shelton, and George Strait on Saturday night. Sunday night we were treated to an awesome intimate concert with Gary Allen. This was amazing and at a small venue so it was like being in his living room. We had a blast!!! Our summer concert schedule is packed full of great artists and we are happy it is concert season again.


The French Open is well under way and the big upset of Rafa Nadal yesterday really made me sad. :o( Guess he can't win forever. So now I am rooting for Roger Federer. The woman's game is exciting this time around as well. I'll keep you posted in the final results!


Please keep my friend Beth in your thoughts and prayers as she under goes surgery tomorrow morning.


Hope this finds you well.


Happy Summer!
