One day until CREATE art retreat!

Hannah has left for school and while I was sitting here trying to answer emails I thought I would send you a wave from where I'm at.
I have no good photos of what I'm working on so I decided to photo this twist of yarn that Dawn gave to me while I was in AZ with her. It does look so much more inspiring in person. Hannah & I just love looking at it and touching it.  Next to it is a paper doll that I got from this vending machine with my friend Elena  :  ) Off to the other side is an old photo of Zack & hair is in a was a long time ago. Underneath all of this is a house shaped shadow box thing I got while shopping with Hannah & Char over the summer. I painted it with some light blue and have been having fun putting small things in it that I happen to pick up throughout the day  :  )

The photo above is one you all may have seen part of. Here is the finished painting.
My mother in law added the photos...which look great Granny! and some writing I think at the top of the boat. I love it! Can't wait to see it in person!

I plan to do a mock set up for tomorrows sale and will photograph it for you all to see.

Enjoy the day
