A little of this and a little of that!

I have been a total slack when it comes to painting.  I drove the boys to Charleston, SC last week to visit my family with high aspirations of painting but did absolutely no painting.
From Left to Right , Me, My Mom (Judy), my brother Chris, Steven in the middle and Sam on the right.  As a side note my Mom and I get credit for no make-up selfies:)

There was a lot of this!

And a little of that!  Happy Birthday to my Sam Man who is turning the big 5 today.
Isn't that cool.  I call these light saber lights:)

I did find some inspiration along the way.  I love it when businesses utilize artists in their design.

And I saw these at an artists studio today.  I'm going to make the wreath:)  A reason to save all of my empty tubes:)

I'm back to painting today so I will have some work in progress posted on Wednesday:)



  1. sounds like a fun trip...everyone needs a respite every once in a while! Thanks for sharing

  2. Love your new blog header, Carrie! It's so beautiful! It's nice to know you're from South Carolina, too. I was born in Greenwood, but my heart is in Charleston. You have a beautiful family :)

  3. Looks like a fun trip!
    I look forward to Wednesday to see what you are up to!

  4. What great photo's! And you have exciting times ahead!
    I love your blogs new look... Just one little thing I'm noticing and I hope you don't mind me mentioning it - I have quite a large PC screen, but I can't see the entire width of your blog... I lose about an eighth of your banner I guess. Maybe it's just me! Still, it looks wonderful anyway :0)

  5. Beautiful post, Carrie and such a beautiful family!! Family first ...painting comes 2nd!! LOL
