Long Time, No See...But Now There Are TWO of Me!

You are probably wondering where I've been huh? It's been a while since I've had the chance to blog! 

What's been keeping me so busy? Well, I've been painting....a lot! In October I taught two painting parties where we painted monogrammed pumpkins. It was so much fun and some of the ladies who participated were incredibly brave with their choice of colors! 

I never would have imagined that cream and gray would make a nice pumpkin but oh, boy didn't it turn out just wonderfully? 

And this one, I just love that green and the fact she chose a lowercase letter! So unique! 

Next week I'm going to be teaching two classes in one day, oh boy!! And we are going to be painting Santa! 

This is going to be a fun one! 

Our painting parties have became so popular that we are increasing our maximum class size from 10 to 20! 
I have to give a big thanks to my town librarian Angie for starting me down this road of teaching painting parties. I've enjoyed it so very much and though I've found my calendar full between teaching classes and preparing paintings for possible classes I've never felt more energized! I feel like this is exactly what I should be doing! 

In fact, I've decided to start a little business. Not only am I going to keep teaching these painting classes at the library, as long as my librarian will allow me to, but now I'm going to start traveling to host painting classes where the customer is, within reason. I'd love to travel back home to all you wonderful folks in Indiana but I'd have to REALLY adjust my prices!! So, I've been working on a separate website for these traveling painting parties; introducing The Roving Brush. 

I'm so excited! I have so many painting ideas I can't seem to paint fast enough. So, anyone interested in a party?

    1. Oh! Leoti is so far away! Maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle?

  2. So cool! One day we'll have to have you come do a painting party in Kazembe.

    1. If I ever to make it to Kazembe (it's on my bucket list) I won't do a painting party. No Ma'am, I'll be painting your whole complex!! Every wall you'll let me!! Well, i guess that's a painting party in itself isn't it?


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
