Art Friends in the Studio

I was super excited to show off my new house and studio with my friends I went to see in the Caymans. They decided to take time out of their very busy schedule and stopped at my home town and had a visit. Above Emily is working on her large canvas...while my Zoey -girl is snuggling.

Here...Carol wanted to see just how big baby Bella has gotten....and well, she is big...lol!!! As big as Carol.  You just can't come into this house and NOT get smothered in poodle kisses :0)

I just LOVE seeing my studio filled with peoples!!!!!! LOL!!!! Makes me so HAPPY!!! Carol, Becky (who came over to meet the sisters) , and Emily all arting and visiting.

Emily giving Becky a lesson in Mandala drawing.

working at filling her canvas up...

Emily is soooo freaking good at these mandalas and fantasy flowers!!!!!
Then we ended the night with a Sister-date...We scooped up my kid sister on the right...and went to a restaurant on the ocean. Which we then went for a very lovely walk after dinner:):)

The entire trip was just amazing...from visiting the sisters at their Cayman home, to them following me home and playing in my studio, and then our Sister double date :0)

Art Friends and Paradise

 Went to the Cayman Islands again for a week to visit my friends Emily and Carol...As always I had a VERY relaxing trip.

First stop...Sea Turtle Farm. Boy...oh Boy, these creatures are soo beautiful!!!
  

They even had baby pools were you could pick up and hold the wee ones...that is if you could catch them...LOL!!! (they are quick)

....sigh....

Carol took me to Sting-ray Island too... Its a sand bar where the fishermen clean their fish..and the stingrays over the years have come in to eat the remains of the fish guts...now they are still there..and people pay to pet and feed them. They are wild stingray...but very used to people... the female above was really big and pregnant....she was coming up my chest for a kiss... the guide was helping us hold her for photos. Because the waves were knocking us all around!!!
...ummmm....okay sweetie I think that is close enough!!! LOLOLOL!!!!



Hello :0)

Carol, Emily, and Me

Love this picture...Emily drawing with Carol sitting on the beach reading her kindle:)

Did a little snorkeling as well...and the fishes here are super friendly...Yikes!!!  Carol said that people feed them all the time so they come in close...and since I was holding a water camera..they thought I might have food or something!!

Seven Mile Beach

Emily made me this fun and funky bracelet for my Birthday present:):) Love it!! She even put turtle charms on it.:)


                                                        Journaling page completed while there ...
                                                     I'm doodling on found shells....
Emily collects shells and pieces while she is on the Island and draws on them...so I started my own collection to bring home with me!! 
Emily showing me how she likes to play with her Tombow markers.... very cool. (before)

Then you add water...and look what happens!!! Yummy!!!!! Now I can doodle over the top of this...or cut it up and use in collage ... or make tags/cards out of this fun paper:):)


Rum Point, Art journaling, Friends, Sun, Laughter, and Mud-Slides...Yep, a great day!! 

Thanks for stopping by....Wish I could have taken you all with me :0)

Antiquing With Firends

  Hello Blog Friends! Dropping in to tell you about a super fun weekend I had with a couple of IG friends...Darlene, Becky and I went to the Rennigher's Antique Extravaganza in Orlando, Florida!!! So, much FUN!!!

There was miles of booths like this...after 8 hours we only got through 1/3 of it.


At one point we came across a guy and his wife selling these...totally bought one!!! Perfect!!!

  
LOL!!! Becky and Darlene stood at this table filled with thousands of little stuff rummaging through for a long time....I sat on a bench near by...I was getting pretty tired by this point:)

With my new diet...Gluten-free I'm finding it hard to find things out side my house with no wheat in it...these were...and boy were they yummy. Mashed corn on the cob...that she tossed on a skillet and flipped into pancakes...then stuck mozzarella cheese in between and cooked until melted cheese. I split one with one of the girls..... yummy:):)

You know I came home with some of these;):)


My heart went pitter-patter when I came across all this Fiesta ware!!!

We had our hands and baskets full...and wallets were empty. It was time to find a sit down restaurant and relax.
Totally EXHAUSTED friends!!! It was a great day!!!

Thanks for stopping in:):)
