This next one was for the one of the neighbor girls...she saw me painting the one for my parents and asked me to paint one for her with her favorite colors. She LOVED it :)
And then her younger sister asked for one too...and I couldn't resist because these girls are so cute :) I ;earned a lot from creating this canvases....and know I have much to improve on, but it is a great process for me.
I'm just finishing up a painting for my nephew...his school's logo. It turned out pretty well for his themed room that I just finished painting this week. I'll post pictures when the room is complete!
That's all for today...now on to the homework :(

I am repainting my nephew's room and was going to paint the stripe today. I had just finished taping the boundaries when I stepped back to observe my "straightness" and I tripped over a lamp cord. Bad move!!! The lamp was on a bookshelf and it had a ceramic base. The base hit my head, crashed to the floor, and I screamed out with pain. I ran to the bed holding my head to lay down...I don't do well with pain so I didn't want to faint. As I was laying crying on the bed, I realized my hand was wet...pulled my hand away and it was full of blood. That freaked me out!! I quickly grabbed a rag and headed to the neighbors for help. Of course this happened while I was home alone. Thankfully, they were home and were able to calm me down so they could take a look at it. They called my sister... even though she was out of town and would be unable to do anything. Once again, thankfully, the cut wasn't deep and closed up right away. I laid down for awhile with a ice pack on my head...and was feeling better, but they still wouldn't let me go home :) But I have to admit, it was great to have someone take care of me and a family to hang out with b/c it had been a pretty lonely weekend. Now I'm back at home and a bit scared to fall asleep... I don't want to accidentally lay on my cut during the night or do something to make it start bleeding again. So instead, I'm watching TV with an ice pack on my head...hoping to fall asleep at some point. Another thing to be thankful for...no school tomorrow so I can get the homework done that I was supposed to get done today!
