weekend in pics (an upcoming tutorial and a new sketch)...
Hello and happy Monday! For the first time in I don't know when, I'm feeling supremely organized - which means it'll all go to hell in a handbasket pretty soon so I'm taking the bull by the horn and running with it. (how many cheesy phrases did you count?)
Allow me to explain each picture above because I'm sure you're wondering about at least one...namely number three.
1) I'm finally decorating our bedroom (after 5 years) and in order to avoid painting the dull taupe walls, I'm adding vivid pops of color and lots of white. This week I'll have a tutorial to show how I created one of these pillows. Hint: its easy and cheap, my middle name...er...scratch that.
The other pics are from Instagram:
2) Finally figured out that my regular cherry tomatoes are, in fact, black cherry tomatoes. I thought something was wrong with them throughout most of the summer. Anyway...
3) These are my offspring during our wings and beer outing (not the 20 yr. old) They decided to pose straight faced a la mug shot. Total success, don't you think?
4) After concentrating on bags, I was having art withdrawals. So this week, I'll have a newly painted sketchbook update to show you. Yay!
Oh, and I had a "me" night which included ratty clothes, a lovely salad, grilled salmon, "some" wine, dark chocolate drizzled popcorn and this movie. The entire evening was simply divine.
So, that's my weekend - how was yours?
Can't wait to show you the easy pillow tutorial and my sketchbook.
Have a beautiful Monday. Stay cool.
