Things are looking brighter!

Summer is almost here!
I just had my last class with my little first graders=0) I think they learned a few thing, but hopefully they just had fun. It's interesting that some children by this age already worry about what their drawing looks like. I honestly thought that none of them would be nervous about starting a sketch, but I quickly learned that we needed to drop kick the erasers, lol. The nine months just flew by and now I can potty train J!!!!! AY YAY YAY...don't get me started;o)

So, of course I've still been knitting and I came up with this hat! Wanted to make something mushy and large. Kind of like a deflated chefs hat, lol. VOILA!

Here comes the sun...but the heat....NOT so much. We went to the beach to play in the sand this weekend and brrrrrrrr. People around us were TRYING to pretend it was 85*, but WHOOO LORD it was C O L D. Putting a positive spin on it, it was gorgeous and sunny.

Castles are always fun to make, but J is going to get that great big green ball back there.


I'm freezing and I have three layers on, LOL.

OKAY, now they're just taking pictures to show how wimpy I am, lol. It's the icy breeze. SERIOUSLY.

OH, back to some warm talk! I was working on some hammered rings and had an order for another toe ring. It just happened to fit my toe. KEEP IT...SELL IT...KEEP IT....SELL IT? Yep, it's in the mail=0(
I got some of that crackling nail polish on. I don't know how well you can see it, but I thought I'd mention that it's a lot of fun watching it transform. I recommend you use a darker base polish(OPI makes it).

So, besides the potty training business....I need to start a new painting. Not really sure what I want to paint. Maybe I'll go back and revisit some photos of Europe?
I'll let you know=0) Feel free to make some suggestions!
Have a lovely week!!!

My other job......
X-Are you really my Mama?
X-I still think Nana and Pop pop are my parents.
X-You know all my brothers believe me. EVEN Nana and Pop pop!
Me-Yes, but why were you in my tummy then?
X-I LOVE THAT YOU ARE MY NANNY. You are really good at that(giggle...giggle...giggle).
Me-You are sweet.

    I do have a house I love, but it's in LA. It was featured in Better Homes & Garden last summer. I knew right away that it was the house I love to drive by! I'll try to find it again.

    Have a great day,
