TGIF!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it's Friday! The last couple of days have just zipped because of the Paint Your Art Out event was yesterday and being one of the main organizers I was really knee deep in the trenches.   It was really crowded and it was well worth all of the hard work.  My only bit of bad luck is that  my camera ran out of battery! I know the worst!  Nights like this remind me that I am a lucky girl to work with some amazing and talented people, who inspire me to be a better artist and creative business owner.  I am still working on the my thank you notes and final number crunching for the event.  Here are some sneak peaks from the event.
Once I finish wrapping up my loose ends then I can enjoy the weekend.  We are packing our bags and my paint supplies and doing a road trip!  I can't wait to show you all the paintings I have been working on for a painting a day.  :)  What are you up to this weekend?

PS Some of the artists in the pictures above are the sassy Jenn Feeney and Mr Chris Haberman.

a little tip if you use a rechargeable battery is to turn the camera off, remove the battery, put it back in and you might get a few more shots. glad the show went well and have a great weekend!

Gosh, you have been busy, busy, busy ... how wonderful! But of course you definitely deserve a break over the weekend.

YAY for a road trip!

I'm having a quiet weekend as I'm feeling a bit under the weather - but it means I just have to take things easy (that's OK by me).

This looks very cool. Hope you enjoy the road trip! It seems like a good weekend for one. A lot of my friends have gone on road trips. I'm kind of jealous.

Looks like a great event...and it sounds like you really do need a weekend off! I do need to make it out to Portland some day!!!

Jenna (SewSavoirFaire) said...

Can't wait to see the paintings you've been working on! I've been desperately trying to get internet at my new house...I've fallen so behind on reading blogs and posting! To be without the internet is just not fun. The Paint Your Art Out event looks like it was pretty spectacular!
