A bit of crazy!

Well, I did it.  I survived working, having a house full of 11 people, being the hostess...but not with the mostest and tour guide.  It was all quite grand and I had a wonderful time seeing friends and running around with them.   I also got A LOT of pictures.
Mount St. Helens

On a side note, I am sitting at my art desk, which has very little workspace, because it has tons of stuff all over it, but I am ready to paint, draw, create.  I have no place I have to be today....yippeee!!!  Also, I quite happily sent off my May trade today, I am certain she will faint when it shows up on her doorstep.  Sorry for the tragic delay, it has truly been ultra crazy here....
OH younger son wiped out on his skateboard yesterday....what the poop??  He's okay, lots of scrapes though.  BAH!!!

And now for some photo sharing!
Good day my dear friends!!  :)

a new painting...not sure where I'm going with it or if I even like it.

paints that I found in my stuff...I think they're several years old...I may give them a try and see if they'll still work...hmmm...

sitting at my desk and happy to be here.

me and my bestie...yay, she will be living close to me again...

It's life Jim, but not as we know it...

It's past midnight...I just got home from work a bit ago and grabbed a glass of wine and thought, "it's been quite awhile since I posted on my blog."
This has been an insanely busy month....
company, work, a trip, work, a trade (which I have still failed to mail out...BAH!) work, more company, work, a smidge of alone time with my hub, work again, small tidbits of time to paint/draw/create, work, my son wiping out on his longboard, more work and even more company coming this week.  I am suddenly very tired.

How about some pictures!  Oh...and Happy Father's Day to all you awesome dads out there!!!
