A wee update!

Feeling sad looking at my little blog and blowing the cobwebs off it!
I have been taken over and consumed by a 'life project'.My MIA has been due to our recent house purchase , ( a great foreclosure deal) a stone ranch house on 2 acres! It's all very exciting , but a pretty wild ride , with a very quick closing , a manic remodelling, complete house painting , new carpet , packing , moving etc.. all within 3 weeks! Yep pretty insane , and with the delightful 2 year old 'helping' and the 10 year old , " when can we go to the pool'?? So we are still in the thick of it 8 days till moving day, aaargh!

BUT , it's all great , I am excited , the property has lots of magical huge old oak trees , complete privacy , tons of birdies , chicken houses , AND a 340 sq ft studio for me up the back of the property!!! Too exciting!
I will paint up a little sign for the outside - The Willows Nest

So... I will post some fun before and after shots , ( some befores are pretty scary)!

I did squeeze in one art market , which was brilliant , I sold paintings , sculptures , jewelry and prints , lots of fun!! It's so neat to get your work out in the fresh air , in front of 'humans- face to face' and see their responses , I find the feedback , so fulfilling!

I am so keen to get to all your blogs and see what you have all been up to , but.. I have another box to pack , and another .... and another... and..
hehee , Cheers , Helen
