I Know...I Know...

Where have I been... well, it's that time of year again, and I've been in my classroom for the last two weeks making things ready for the new year. I'm excited even though I'm wondering where my summer went! That was a flash in the pan! I didn't get to do much artwork this summer which made me a little sad, but we have gotten a lot done on the addition to the house. That makes me happy!!! Gayland finished the rock work in the front entrance and the front of the house this weekend. I love it! I have a beautiful ceiling in my new craftroom, too. He's my Superman!

Here's the new front entrance. The rock has continued around from the original house. He started the porch today.

Come on in... and ignore the portly woman reflected in the glass!


Here's the left wall of the entrance. Those doors will lead to the den when we get the den built. That's the Christmas phase! Here's the right wall of the front entrance. Talk about a lot of work for Gayland. As you might recall, on the rock laying, I'm just the "sweeper upper".

Well, that's where I've been. That, and in the round pen with Ima Jean trying to convince her she's not the boss. Wish me luck on that one! If you haven't dropped by the Humble Arts this month, you're missing a treat- Trick or Treat, that is!
I'm offering a hand-painted sign from the "Toil and Trouble Spell Emporium." This sign is my own design, and would be a great touch to a Halloween motif!
