Happy Birthday "AuntieMommy" (Sherry) from GotArt!!!

Happy Birthday to my sister-in-law-best-friend-forever Sherry Goodloe of GotArt. My sons Clarence and Aaron affectionately call her "AuntieMommy". She is having a great birthday month. Pop over and wish her the best! GotArt

Well I got a chance to run out on Sunday. Inspired by my new book "Acrylic Revolution" by Nancy Reyner, my first stop was Asel Art Supply where I picked up some more Golden items. Paint brushes were on sale for 50% off, so I also picked up 2 gorgeous paint brushes. I also picked up 2 6x12 wooden supports. I have already painted one with gesso...since it seems to be the prerequisite to everything!

Oh! Who is in the picture? It is actually "Betsy" the cousin of my maternal grandmother. I cropped her from a picture with my grandmother and one other cousin that was taken in 1925 when my grandmother was only 11 years old. The picture of the 3 of them is unbelievably precious! You couldn't handle so much preciousness all at once so you will only see Betsy today! I printed Betsy on scrapbook paper (a great tip seen in my "Exhibition 36" book by Susan Tuttle).

As I was on my way home from Asel Art Supply I noticed a thrift store! I looked around for a while until the rusty item below jumped off the shelf. I looks like it is a candle holder of some sort. It had a small item (definitely a candle holder) taped to it. The small holder will probably end up being feet for something. The larger holder is screaming DOLL BODY to me right now...we'll see. I am quite satisfied with my $2 find! Overall, I think this store will not be a good source for great finds. It gets a 3 on the "junk worthiness" scale.

Reminder...Wednesday is the last day to enter drawings for Lisa's One World~One Heart Giveaway! Don't miss all the awesome goodies! You can enter my giveaway by clicking here!

Stay Creative!
