New Digits

As most of you know I haven't been creating much lately in the art room. I have been doing a lot more of creating things for the home front. Here is one of the things I just finished up last Friday night. I have been needing house numbers and yes that is right just the boring old numbers wouldn't do. So I had the brainstorm of using an old platter and painting the numbers on it. So that is what I am did. I find this white platter at a second hand store for a buck, buck fifty for the paint(had a coupon of course) and a buck for the plate hanger and for less than one number I have this great piece. I really like the look and it just shows you that this is a place to come and be yourself.

The Red Couch has a new mate

Well the picture doesn't do it justice. I couldn't get the colors to pop like they do in real life. I went to lunch the other day at Bosco on the Square and this was hanging by the table. The whole lunch I was looking at it and thinking that it would be so great by the red couch. So I took the plunge and bought my very first piece of original art work by SKY. It is a little funky and so artsy. It looks right at home with the colors in the room. So here is another first for me and I must say that I have really enjoyed getting to know myself and doing things for me.

My New Nephew

Well he has arrived and his name is Ryan. With the most wonderful big brown eyes, blond hair and the most gentle spirit you would ever want to see. He had been an answer to Sophia's prayer for several years. Katalina thinks that he is really great. Joseph is trying to warming up to him, but he does say that the best thing about him is it makes the household even now. That would be 3 girls and 3 boys. The first morning I meet him he took right to me and now we are walking buddies each morning at 5:30 and I must say he is so smart. He doesn't use the potty until he gets back to his yard and he knows when he is getting closer as his little pace picks up.

Okay as you might know my sister didn't have another baby. Because if that was so I would have 4 more children to raise because she would be in the mental hospital. The Reyna family how ever did get a wonderful 12 week old puppy. I put off posting as I was not for sure that he would be staying the family. Last week was a very trying one for all of them trying to get use to the new little one. I must say this for the world to know I REALLY admire my sister and she is the best MOM around. As she was attacked by a dog when she was little and is not very comfortable with dogs. She really is trying to put all those feelings behind her for the 3 most precious things in her life to have something they really wanted.

It has been a week and things are settling down and they are all learning to live, love and co-exist with one another.
