I'm posting twice in one day, what a shocker!
The main reason for the double post is to direct you to my Artsy Inspirations Blog.
I've featured an artist that I just adore....her name is Debrina Pratt.
Her work just makes me happy and I thought it might make some of you happy too!
It's about 9pm and I'm about to settle in with hubby and some popcorn for a movie. I've just spent a couple of hours with Diane. She's an angel...and so new to the whole mixed media thing....She has spent the last two days teaching a 2 day, 6hr per day, workshop and HAS to be exhausted. I had all intentions of working on my house and her room, etc today but had a happy, unexpected visit from my girlfriend, Tanya. We started talking and the next thing I knew, it was 5:30 and I'd done diddly squat!! Those of you who know me would totally not be surprised about this...:) I tend to get distracted and forget my mission for the day...it's the ADD, what can I say? When we saw the time I SCREAMED! and made her run upstairs with me to put the guest room back in order....as it had been prepared for a paint job that had never happened....crap on the upstairs landing, the furniture all pushed into the middle of the room, light fixtures taken off the wall....etc, etc, etc.
I'm happy to say that before she got here I had her room ready for her...clean flannel, laura ashley sheets *thank you Burlington Coat Factory*, a little basket filled with water bottles, granola bars *in case she wakes up hungry*, art4acure deck...I put all my favorite new books up there in a basket so she could totally cozy in and have some down time.
After we finished visiting, she was tired but realized it wasn't even 9pm and thought she wanted to soak in a bath....I took the yankee vanilla candle (don't you love those) from her bedroom into the bath, got her some bubble bath and gave her free reign over my bookcase...she's been soaking ever since. It just makes me happy...that she feels comfortable to just BE...she doesn't have to be with me at all, that means so much to me.....that she can just take care of herself. I told her goodnight and will see her in the morning. Ooooh, this is so fun. Now those girlie friends of mine that I've invited to stay with me....see!!! I LOVE it....COME! It makes me happy. :) and I'll pamper you!
I can't wait for class tomorrow....I'll let you know how it goes.
