Today was busy, but very productive. I finished the hugely cheesy pumpkins that I meant to finish days ago. All I have to do is put a clear coat on them tomorrow. It only took me a few hours one I got started. One side has pumpkin faces for Halloween, and the other side is just a plain pumpkin for Thanksgiving. I wanted them to have a double use. Deans' Mom asked me to paint her a Santa and his sleigh with reindeer, for Christmas. I will start on a sketch in the next few days. I need to finish a scrap booking contest that is due on Thursday. I have a 12x12 page layout, card, and gift tag to finish. All have to coordinate. The theme is "What I am thankful for". I have the rough sketch down on paper and most of the scrap booking elements gathered together. Tomorrow, when I am able this project will be my main focus. I am really wanting to start that giant canvas. It is calling my name along with a few other projects I haven't started yet.
The carnival at church was very well done and fun for the kids. Everyone had fun. It was nice to go as a family. Did you like our tacky Wendy's diner pictures? Can you believe how big the girls are getting? I am so tired, so now I will sleep for a while. Goodnight.

Last night I was able to walk 2 miles on the treadmill. Dean worked on the little 50 dirt bike while I walked and then I came in and did crunches and stretched. I have missed my walks at the Marina. It's just a little difficult to drive all the way over when Aris is still waking up still in the early evenings. Hopefully in the spring I can get back there again.
Today has so far been a really great day. I am off to paint and will write more soon.

Tonight I am going to sketch some pumpkins on wood so that I can cut them out, paint them, and put them by the front door to use as decorations. Very cheesy, I know but fun, and I am not letting any wood scraps go to waste. I have been a wee bit busy the past week, that's why I didn't post. However I finally caught up on the house work (we had a mountain of laundry), now I feel like I can relax enough to create again. I am very inspired by some art documentaries I watched this week and I plan on starting the big canvas this weekend. It's been a good day
