This is fun.  I have a fresh new look to my blog and it feels good. 

Things have been quite busy around here as I prepare for my upcoming art show!  I owe a huge thank you to my husband who has been working like crazy to help me get ready; cutting wood for my paintings, making frames (which involves cutting, sanding, staining, nailing, etc...).  I am incredibly fortunate to have a husband who can do such things and do them well.  And, most importantly, is willing to do them.  Thank you Matt.

And then there is my friend, Brooke, who has been so completely available for whatever I need.  Today she sat outside on my deck with me for hours while our children--four of them total-- ran around like crazy people.  She is much better on the computer than I am and completely formatted all of my title labels (that i will display next to my paintings).  She helped me make the decision on what color the frames should be, gave extremely helpful feedback on the paintings themselves, offered to take care of my children while my husband and I hang the paintings on Monday.  Oh and let's see.  She took care of my children for four hours yesterday so I could paint.  Not to mention the overflowing of encouragement and inspiration she offers on a daily basis.  I am so blessed.  Thank you Brooke.

Okay, it's been an extremely long day.  Time for some sleep.  Night, night.
