- It is all about colour, life after hibernation and getting out of ruts that I shouldn't be in.
- It makes me want to wear clothes other than track suits and runners
- It makes me straighten my hair and wear lip gloss!
- It makes me not skip my gym classes.
- It gives me days where I can take the little guy to the zoo, just for fun.
- It takes away the excuses for not walking the dog.
- It gives hubby and I a date night every so often that doesn't involve home delivered pizza or Chinese because it's just too miserable to go out at night.
- It gives us blossoms.
- It makes me smile!
Since I'm on the pre-school committee, Friday all day and night I was busy setting up, preparing and serving at the bar at the annual Art Show fundraiser for parents only - lots of fun, lots of cheap "Passion Pop" and people laughing that I would drink such a "teenager" type drink (heck, it TASTES good so I don't care!), lots of money raised for the pre-school. Hubby and I actually got a picture together (above), he was the auctioneer, it was so funny! He was told to give up trucking and get into real estate, HA! (BTW isn't he a hottie?!!!)
Oh of course, the masterpiece by Leroy himself - "The Kangaroo". Can't tell you how much I love this. I can't get him to draw anything that isn't a truck or a scribbly roller coaster so to see him draw and paint an actual animal, and his teacher said he chose to do it and didn't want any help, makes me so proud and so happy! He's branching out a bit!
We won the bid for the group drawing where all the kiddies contributed - it was supposed to be Australian animals, so Leroy even drew a dingo poking out his tongue (lol), a giraffe and a panda bear. Yeah, someone kinda mentioned to him that the latter two weren't Australian but his answer was hilarious - "Yes they are, they're here at the zoo!" I guess four year olds have an answer for everything! And technically, he was right!
So now onto the last project reveal for Sweet Six Studio. Here's our superb seamstress Cheryl's, beautiful creation - this is a hanging pillow pocket - is this one of the most adorable things you have ever seen or what?! I can't wait to make this one, I have my fabrics lined up and ready to go! New ones came in the mail and this is the perfect project for them. We'll learn how to make this and how to create the sweet cupcake applique too, all of it!
Sweet Six Studio starts in only a couple of days!!! I can't wait! There's still time to sign up!
Ok so one last thing I want to share with you. You know how sometimes, like once in a blue moon, you hear a song and it just resonates with you - the lyrics, the rhythm, the beat, the sounds, the voice.... you know - just a super COOL song - well, this is my latest "one of those" songs, and you can click on the play button to hear it. Starts a little slowly but really gets moving and it's one I can't get out of my head! I don't want to get it out of my head either! Please enjoy....with lyrics like these..
There’s a place I go
Dream catch me, yeah
Spring is almost here, and I am so thankful and so pleased....
Life is beautiful....
Thank you for stopping by and adding even more beauty to my life and giving me more reasons to count my blessings.
