Had my Thursday morning art lesson with a few extra apprentices today.  Joining the girls, were Raymond (an almost eighth grader) and Willy…(who will be entering 6th grade this year.)  Ray and Willy taught me how to distress paper like old documents…see Ray’s notes below…

The possibilities for which this trick could be implemented are endless…and clearly it is of interest to the “cool kids” so, we’ll file it away for safe keeping.  (boys if you’re reading this, it was a true pleasure meeting you, have a wonderful trip)

In other news, things are a bit hectic as of late…aside from weekends away, here’s the line up:

1.  Finish Pirate’s House Mural (note that it is barely started)

2.  Sell old car, buy new one…peachy I tell you!

3.  A few stray pen & inks

4.  Finish building David’s website…(golly gee)

5.  Scan / Prep / Order new prints for Etsy store...(this list is getting long…)

6. Scan Caty and Mary portraits…(been waiting for paint to dry for days)

7.  And open a new Etsy store…

…you get the idea….

Well, off to the races!  Happy Thursday!
