Wine & Painting...Yes, Please...

Last night, I not only co-hosted but attended my first Wine & Painting Party.  It was so much fun!  I co-hosted with Jill & we had plenty of snacks & wine.  Our gal, Becky, shared this picture as our project:


My only fear about the pic was the birds but I was game to try it, it was fun & since it's still summer, a great summery piece for us ladies to do.



The name of Becky's company is: "I <3 Canvas". 
So cute.


Becky brought in all the materials - table covers, easels, canvases,
plates for the paint, paint, paintbrushes & cups for the water
to clean our brushes with encouraging quotes on each one.




 Jill & I wanted to keep it a semi-small gathering
to make it easier on Becky & to make sure that we 
had plenty of room to paint & such.
We decided that we would each invite five people & then did
end up with ten people including us.  A good number.


The whole crew - Kim, Jennifer, Jill, Amy, Cathi (I think?), Bri,
Vicki, Julie, Gladys & me.
All the paintings came out a lil different & there was 
something about each others paintings that we really liked that made
them different.  Paul's favorite was Amy's (he came in 
right at this point of the evening - he really liked her birds).  
My favorite was Vicki's.  I loved her fly!  :)


Here is a closeup of mine.
I wasn't too happy with my birds but 
for my first time doing this kind of painting, 
I cannot be too hard on myself.


This is a closeup of Jill's.
I love her big fat bird.  I giggled when I first saw
him but I really do like him.


Here is a closeup of Kim's.
This too was her first painting party
& I really like her swirly sun.

Have you attended one of these parties before?  What did you paint?  

I think that I'd like to have another one in the Fall & do a Fall themed one & then one in the winter (maybe for my birthday) & do a snowman one!  It was a whole lot of fun!  :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
