Catch up post...

My kids are on Spring Break this week so we went away for about 5
days to California for a mini vacation. Above is the last She Art girl
I finished off before we left. This week is the last week of our class
and I am trying to catch up on all the videos, this class has been so
much fun and just watching Christy create the pieces is amazing.
She is re-running this class in just a few weeks, go here.
We had some really good food whilst we were away, and some
really delicious desserts, evidence above:) 
We went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market on Sunday, a huge outdoor
flea market that is held every month on the 2nd Sunday of the
month. We went a few years ago and decided it may be fun to go
again. There are new items for sale, old items, vintage clothes,
used clothes, you name it and you will find it there. I was really
hoping to find some fun things to use in my art but did not find
anything this time. I did however see the sign pictured above and
knew that I had to have it!
When I got home I had a small package waiting for me that I
wasn't expecting. A blog friend of mine had very kindly offered
to send me some "To Dye For" which is used in the Melting Pot
with UTEE. I was expecting a bottle but she sent me a whole
package of them, yay! She also sent me a really nice copper
leafing pen, must try that out as I do not have one of those.
However the best thing is the tag, can you see that fabulous
piece of art that she made, just gorgeous. I have been following
Lori's blog for quite a while now and she makes the most
incredible pieces, and lots of them too, go and check out her art.
Thanks so much Lori for all the goodies and for your wonderful
tag, so happy that you made that for me:)

Hi Marlene ~ Sounds like you've been having a lovely time. I just love your latest She Art piece! I've been so inspired by these pieces that I signed up for the next class! Can't wait to get started!

How is your back holding up? xo
