Hello, Lovelies!

Hi there, Guys...and Dolls.  Sorry it's been so long since I've checked in.  Trust me, I'd much rather be here telling you nice folks about crafty stuff, than job hunting.  However, Mama needs a new pair of shoes.  And groceries.  And a trip to the craft store.  And...well, a lot of things.   And all of that stuff takes money.  Lots of it.  So, alas, I am job hunting.  Thinking happy thoughts!

Between pounding the pavement and spending all day online filling out applications, I have got some fun stuff done.

Specifically, lots of painting.  My poor palette really does need a good cleaning.  However, I'm all out of rubbing alcohol at the moment.  It's fine though, I don't really feel like taking on that task anyways.  Too messy!

Sure is pretty though, isn't it?



Only problem I have when I paint?
 I get paint everywhere.  So many of my clothes have paint on them....bits of our house too.  A spot on the floor here and there, perhaps a little on the kitchen table.  I'm bad.  If the guy sees me painting or calls me while I'm at it, he always asks if I'm wearing painting clothes.  You'd think I'd have learned by now, but no, I'm still ruining things.  When I get the urge to paint, I just pull out stuff and get to it.  If I'm lucky I throw on an apron.  Getting as far as changing my clothes?  Rare.  I have to get better at that!

I'll check in soon to show you a few things that I painted.  And some stitchy stuff!

Hope you're having a creative day.

Hi there J5! Who would have thought a "messy" palette could be so beautiful! It really is. Good luck out there pounding the pavement. After reading your post this afternoon, I feel for ya!
Keep calm & carry on, my dear. You'll get scooped up straight away, I am sure.

Your palette says a lot. If it was clean and organized, I'd be a little worried on your love of painting ;)
