Monday Made It

Craftiness ahead!

I have some more paintings.
I did this one with my sister~it was interesting to see our differences!

One of my very favorites!
The next one I did was a redo-I didn't love the way it came out when I originally did it, so I went to an Open Studio time to see if I could do better-and I did!
New Version
 Right now, most of my paintings are lying on the floor-they're being furniture placeholders!

I'm getting a dining table and a chair, so I have the paintings laid out when I want them (with almost the correct dimensions!) so I can get used to the new traffic flow-hopefully to save me on some leg bruises!

This way, I'll be used to avoiding the furniture by the time it finally arrives! 

I've also been working on my Planbook for next year! It worked fairly well for me this year, so I'm just tweaking it a bit for next year (plus updating fonts and colors :)

So far, I have all my monthly calendars done-complete with PD days, vacations and days off!

I'm waiting for a certain someone's set 3 borders to go on sale before I finish the plan pages (Kelly B. I'm looking at you! :), but since I have almost two months of summer left, I'm not too concerned about it!

I've also been continuing my stash busting with another baby blanket-this one for a boy!
I'm about halfway there!

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. Fun fun! Love the paintings and the baby blanket. It's all great.

  4. You are very artistic! Love the paintings!


  5. You are amazing! I love the paintings- my problem with painting is that I want everything to be uniform and symmetrical. My finished work always looks too boxy. Thanks for sharing these!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  6. Those paintings are gorgeous!

    You're right, I do love the new version a little more - the sun is more striking

  8. I am loving all of your paintings. I always enjoy going to the step by step painting classes that we have in town. It's so neat to see how everyone's turns out and it definitely helps since I'm not creative enough to come up with ideas on my own. Lol!
