the ABC's of life

My clients have the best ideas! I love it when I am given something new to paint- and in these fun colors.

Another squares on squares painting. Some friends bought my last one off the mantle and it has been bare ever since. (extra texture added with a layer of tissue paper)


The squares before getting colored in- I kinda like it that way too.

The ABC's of life is going to be hard to give up- I get attached.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Only 3 days of school left here at the Mincy house!!! We are all excited- I am getting together The Plan....you know how it is moms- if we don't have a plan we will go crazy. Let me just tell you how blessed we are to live in this age- one click of the mouse to the Crafty Crow and Bam! Instant arts-crafts-snacks-you name it- activities for you to do with your kids. I love it.

What are your plans for summer vacation?

Summer- LOVE IT! Lots of picnics and outings to museums and new places. Vacations to NY and camping trips, and amusement parks, and most importantly...traveling to Europe to bring home our baby girl!!!!!!

Ooooo - I love this new squares painting, and I really do like the photo of it mid-process!!!! You are so CREATIVE, Sara. (Tissue paper!!!!!!)

So blessed! said...

Oh wow...love the ABC's. May have to try my hand at something on that line this summer. My plans are to read, relax, create, organize, travel to Ohio in July for a reading conference, and lay by my niece's pool as often as I can. Gotta play with great nephew as often as possible too!

I just found my way over here from A Familiar Path. All I have to say is, How fun are you?!? I hope you don't mind if I add you to my list. I need a little more color in my life :)

Love the ABC's! Awesome. Yeah for summer - I hope the Mincy's have a great one. Check out Garner parks and rec on-line - there is some fun stuff you might want to participate in!

I LOVE that ABC painting! So much to look at and think about!

Some day, I will commission you to paint me some Tis So Sweet artwork to hang in my kitchen! (Actually, when I get my own place, you need to come and do a mural or a border. I will feed you lots of pretzels and cinnamon rolls while you work. However, you may be a grandmother before we get to that point!!!)

Sara,

Garth and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ABC's (I was just scrolling back through some of your previous posts...). How much would something like that cost?? You are so brave with color and I love it.
