Happy Mother's Day & WOW what a week...

So Monday I started the Cotton Candy Girls class with Natasha May.... sketched and then didn't have time until today to finish BECAUSE I worked (of course)....then yesterday ran a 10k ( my first in over 5 yrs ).  It was a blast but had to be there early so left my house at 4:45 a.m. - drove 75 miles - plodded 6.2 - then turned around and headed home...
Once at home, a quick shower then onto the Artist Reception at Gracie's Cafe in Williamston, MI.  The exhibit for May is "Something Red" and I had my Broken Dreams piece on exhibit!  So I met my mom there and had an INCREDIBLE lunch to celebrate Mother's Day early...  This restaurant/cafe has a menu that is over the top... the service is excellent and the art on display is nothing short of FABULOUS!!!!

So today a drive down to see my boys and their kids!!!  So another 120 mile day to add to yesterday BUT WELL WORTH IT!!!! and then locked myself into finish my 1st lesson for Natasha May's COTTON CANDY GIRLS!!!!
I absolutely did NOT think I would be able to do these whimsical girls!  Guess what - I DID IT - and love her!!!!!!!!!!!  The first is an Angel and now I must do two more so that each of my granddaughters has one!!!!!!!!!!  Click on my sidebar and come join us!!!

So today for Sunday Sketches, hosted by Alexandra!!!!  another super artist...
