It's miserably hot here and since i'm out in it most days I'm looking very forward to coming
inside and being inspired by her projects.  If you haven't checked out her blog, do it now!

Mom's Birthday: Painting Pottery

Got the idea to take my mom to paint pottery after she saw the one I did in May and wanted one. I figured she would enjoy making something of her own, so the surprise plan was hatched. I told her we were taking her somewhere for her birthday and I would pick her up saturday morning. (she told me when i picked her up she was so excited she could hardly sleep) ;)  My brother, sister and niece met us there.  We had living social coupons which made it even nicer.  So we all perused the shelves and decided on what we were going to make.
 I thought I took more pictures-i'll have to get my brother or sister to email me-don't have one of Addison's skull.   We spent several  hours working then all went to lunch.  Mom said it was the best birthday she had ever had.  That's a nice thought but I hope she has had more fun birthday's in her life :)  When we get our pieces back i'll post pictures.  Mom said this week is going to go by too slow.  She's anxious to see the finished pieces-she got 5 plates and had us all do one.  Mine is "iffy" at best. 
I chose 2 bowls and a cup (for paint brushes)

Keith and Addison decided to paint skulls

Haven't posted anything lately.  Seems ever since Gary went to Las Vegas i've had no time for art.  I've been trying to keep up w/all our mowing customers along w/everyday life instead.  (which is no fun)  Since I last posted, my nephew graduated High School (12th in his class!)  We went to a BBQ in his honor.  I turned 50!  yep. got the banner to prove it :)
  I did receive some wonderful mail art from Roben Marie Smith- the file folder envelope will hang on my wall-it's art in itself, but i also got some great postcards as well. (won from a drawing on her blog)

I'll post that picture in a bit.   Next weekend i'm having dinner w/friends for my belated celebration.  Might even post a few pictures from that~
