Finally...tonight I started drawing part 1 of the mural in the girls toy room. I have been planning on doing this mural for about a year. Today I just pulled out my stuff and started. It was nice to get my hands covered in graphite. My projector works pretty well so I am going to do a silhouette portrait of the girls I think. Not sure what Medium I will use on the portrait...probably paint. I have also been wanting to do an oil painting of the girls. I just have to tell myself 1 project at a time :) Here is a pic of the rough sketch of Mickey and Friends. It's really light :

Graduation went well...
I am so proud of Matt, 9 months was a long time, but I am glad that he has finally completed his Paramedics course. He accomplished a lot in the last few years! Grace had decided to make a comment every 5 seconds because she wanted to sit with daddy :) I found out today that Matt was the only person in his class to have children and 1 of 2 to be married. Some of the instructors made it seem like they were still lucky to be standing as the class is so grueling and time demanding. :)
Today we also got a new member to the family: Scooby Doo

And of course Madelyn had to have a picture holding him:

And Grace:

Nemo (our hampster) is still MIA, I am not sure if she will be found...we will be watching the cats activites as the last time Nemo got out of her cage the cats spent the whole day near the stove and we found her in my bread pan sleeping :)

I am in the planning process of a Glass Etching class. This is not an etching class with the stencils, rather rubber stamps! For all you local girls, please give me an idea if you are interested. It will probably be in a couple weeks. Depending on the headcount will depend on the date of the class and where it is located. Please let me know if you are interested. I am thinking the class fee will be around $25 a person, cover 3 projects and supplies. Each person will get their own small bottle of etching cream and will be able to keep the leftovers!

Wowee, it's been a long time...

It has been a very busy couple weeks. I have been pulling some OT at work and Matt has been finishing up his medics class...which he is DONE and PASSED! So, we are getting ready for him to test. My 90 days as a temp will be up June 8th, so I am excited to hear that I have a job position waiting for me...I HOPE!

We have also been doing some yard clean up. The fire did a number to the yard and we have a lot of over grown flower beds. Matt has gotten the coy pond done!! I should have the flowers planted this week. We are also working on a garden, if all goes well, we should have 6 rows of Corn on the Cob sprouting very soon! We also will have tomatoes, cucumbers, green bell peppers, watermelon, pumpkins, brocoli and...well I can not remember...but I think that there are a few more things too. I also got some strawberry plants...I can not wait to have a strawberry patch.

Matt graduates on Sunday but I hope to find some time to get some stamping in. I need to make 2 sets of invitations, one for Madelyn's pool party and one for the Pig Roast.

Here are a few things that I have played with in the past couple weeks:
Belle Pages for a Disney Signiture swap.

Sleeping Beauty pages for a Disney Signiture Swap (the picture is aweful!)

And lastly, the edited Donald pages!
Thats all for now Folks!
