Whew...I've been in a whirlwind!

Sorry it's been a while since my last post!  I always seem to forget how crazy-busy summers are.  I have been home just a few days out of the last 3 weeks!  Not complaining....I have been enjoying time with my daughters and their friends at the beach.  I also had a relaxing, art filled weekend with the fantastic Mindy Lacefield of Tim's Sally at the cabin and an exciting, fun "slumber party" in Atlanta with the ever-inspiring Michelle Allen of Allen Designs and her assistant, Emilee.    Also, my talented daughter,  Bailey just played her first live show in Mentone, AL (a tourist town in North Alabama-she was fantastic, by the way!  Click the link to see.).  I told ya...whirlwind!

I finally found some studio time yesterday.  The dolls now have arms, legs and skirts...just wigs to go!  I also finished the painting below.  I still plan to cover it in wax and antique it.

I hope your summer is going well!!

Hey there Sunshine,

Glad you've been having a great summer with your daughters.

You are so lucky to have spent time with the amazing artists Mindy & Michelle. Wow! You lucky girl.

Congratulations to Bailey on her first live show. How exciting for her, and for you.

Love the new painting. As always your work is brilliant. I really must post on my blog, as I too have been on holidays and have neglected it a bit.

Great to hear from you.
