PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 3/18

Hi Everyone!

I am writing this on Thursday evening so when I say it is my DH birthday it is for March 18.  I was looking at photos of him when he was young and "daaaammmmm" he was good looking. I was better looking back then too.  LOL  I like that we are growing old together, that it doesn't matter if he has 18" biceps and could pick me up and swing me around. Every day he tells me I am beautiful and I think "OMG" for him it doesn't matter that I am not a size 4 any longer with long flowing hair.  Our history has taken us on so many adventures and good or bad we have come through them together. Our perceptions of each other have just matured, grown closer and advanced to the next stage. I really dislike getting old but I am glad I have him to do it with. Happy Birthday Babe!

I have been really busy developing some new beading kits. I did manage to get a back ground painted, I have something very specific I want to finish this with. So just a small WIP and a new pattern for
Please stop by to visit the other artists who share their art every week. 



I have created several Pot Leaf beading patterns for jewelry, this one is a lighter cover.
The kits will be out this next week.






Wishing everyone a very happy weekend.
