Congratulations, Beth! Send me an email with your address and I'll send it out to you ASAP!
With a very heavy heart I must say goodbye for a little while. So what will I be doing during this time? Some of you know that I'll be homeschooling Shelley for the rest of high school, and I'll be spending most of my time refining curricula and developing a plan to help her reach her goals for the next chapter of her life.
I love this kiddo! I also want to enjoy her big sister's last year in college.
Shelley chose art as her elective this year, and don't you know that I'm thrilled! She'll be taking lessons from my art teacher with me as well as exploring art at home and at Auburn University monthly.
We'll use art journals across the curriculum this year.
We're still about a month out from finishing the backyard and patio, so I'll be planting even more hydrangeas (different varieties), plus many other plants, planters, and turf. I'm trying to finish before school starts, so I'm on a strict timetable!
I will also continue painting, and I hope that we get lots of use out of our studio.
Thanks for the adorable Mason jar, Donna!
Donna has one of the cutest studios in blogland. Check it out here!
I hope to paint a few paintings on rather large canvases, and I'll continue painting my minis
Tears are running down my cheeks as I write this. I hope I can return to blogging one day, but so much of that depends on Shelley and her progress. We have a lot of work to do!
I will check back in with y'all after Labor Day at the latest. I hope that I don't have to give up blogging forever, but for now.....
