all things considered...








you know how life goes....as soon as you think you've got it all figured out and things are easy-peasy, here comes the shuffle...





and i'm dancing as fast as i can...school ends in a matter of days - and there seems to be a high-pitch sound running through my towns skies....i think the kids couldn't possibly get more 'bouncy', a nice way to put it - and i will be heavy on the teachers gifts for hanging in there this last week...



as my blackboard clears from all the game boards that you have ordered -my mind starts to dance around new ideas and new pieces that i will be painting over the summer...i already have a piece planned to paint in july....here's a peek...





and as things seemed that they were calming i was given a wonderful opportunity by the philadelphia historical society...




designing and painting flags to be displayed throughout the area, including betsy ross' home....can you imagine my excitement? what a thrill and a tremendous honor to be involved in an undertaking that is so special...it will be a project that is very close to my heart...for i just love love love history...



so as my black board clears, the timing is perfect, isn't life funny that way?





if you would like to look at game boards, here's my link:
