Spring Break

This week is Spring Break, and for me, it’s been a real disappointment. I always think I’ll get so much done since I won’t have to hound my son to do his homework or practice his violin and bassoon, and all other activities get put on hold. But, I suddenly fell ill on Monday, and here it’s Friday already! Nothing accomplished, just too much T.V. (Although we have been enjoying “The Tudors: Season 1”.) I’m hoping to get out and enjoy a little 70 degree weather today before the snow hits tomorrow. Oklahoma weather. Blink, and you could miss it.

I felt very productive last week painting these wooden eggs for Easter.

I use to paint all the time, but it’s been a few years and quite honestly, it wasn’t as fun this time around.

And coming up with ideas to paint each one unique is SO time consuming, even though I jot ideas down in a notebook.

Maybe I’m just a little rusty, but honestly, this might be the last time I do this kind of painting.

That is, until Christmas comes around and I finally decide to paint the rest of the 2 dozen wooden ornaments I have stashed away.

  1. This is a really long shot but I am looking for someone to handpaint two wooden eggs to order for me (I'd obviously pay for your time and effort!). Is this something you could or would do, I love the eggs on your blog and it would be fantastic if you would consider it. I am on redhair_claire at hotmail.com (spaced out avoid junk mail – think you should be able to work it out!) so if you are interested please drop me an e-mail and I can explain what I am after. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
