Busy time

on August 17, 2016

Hello there! How’s things? We are in our ‘busy season’. From the end of July through the middle of September we are always swamped with birthdays. Both Grace and Jagger are turning 4, within 2 weeks of each other. Both of their mother birthdays are also planted in that time, along with my best friend. End of July is mine and Dwen’s (2 days apart) and the entire month of August is usually spent prepping for the babes birthday. This year is no different. I’ve been busy with a Wizard of Oz party and a Super Hero party prep. Invites and goody bags!

Goody bags for Jagger’s party are gender specific….so the tag will indicate that. The Wizard of Oz party is a bit more of a challenge, living in Kansas…is of no help, as one might think.

I’ve also started a series of painting of my dogs, past and present. My last two are done finally.

    You should be VERY proud of those portraits, Carol. Wow! I bet your family loves them too. Just a beautiful tribute to your beloved fur babies. What’s next? Your talent is endless.
