Has it really been two weeks since I've been on here talking to myself?! WOW! How time flies. Our summer is so full of doing nothing. It's great. I mean, we've had the usual of family gatherings, holidays, birthday parties. But the daily time is spent doing art, keeping the house clean, watching movies and World Series of Poker on TV. *wink*
Dh and I did celebrate 19 years of wedded bliss on Monday. Well, bliss is a strong word, but I sure do love him! lol We stayed home and the girls made it a fun evening. They cooked us tator tot taco salad (don't knock it until you try it.) They looked the recipe up on the internet and everything. They made little cakes that were actually cookie consistency and I loved them! So tasty. My 7 yr old was in charge of the games. She made a Sombrero hat pinata out of a cup, plate and paper confetti inside. That was a hoot. Then we played pin the fork on the mouse (another game by the 7 yr old), equally entertaining. We ended the evening playing a rousing game of Apples to Apples. It really was a fun time. We can always go out to dinner and a movie, but how often can you have a great time with kids and THEY did the cooking?!
The summer days have afforded me unlimited time to do art. With no homeschooling, our days are freer. Since I've joined ATCards.com, I signed up to participate in several swaps as well as personal trades. I've been an ATC making fool! Here a few for your viewing:
The girls decided to enter some ATC swaps as well and have been hard at work on creations. (the first set is by my 7 yr old and the rest by my 14 yr old.)
Gosh! This update was a long one! Hope all is well with my fellow artists and friends. Drop me a comment and tell me what you've been up to and if you have pics up on the blogs so I can come visit. I don't wanna miss out!
