Oh my GOODNESS....

So my eldest daughter went yesterday and took her final driving test to get her license... talk about scary... I had to sit in the back seat of my own car while she drove and some stranger (the tester/instructor) sat in the passenger seat directing my child... she did ok... LOL... a few minor things but in the end... she received her certificate to get her license... so today.... after school I took her to the Secretary of States and she got her license... my baby is legal to drive... ugh... this is terrifying... and I am so not ready.
So to relieve my brain and my stress level afterwards I hit the art store... stoked that I may be participating in my first artisan market this spring and my first consignment store... so I went a bit nuts and bought a bunch of supplies so I can paint my butt off... I figure I need to paint just about every waking second for the next month and a half to feel fully prepared with my inventory levels for both the market and shop... but I am super excited since it is a totally new experience for me.
I filled my cart with box canvases and paints and new brushes so that I do not have to leave my studio at all this weekend..LOL... I just have to get my imagination working overtime and get those creative juices flowing... I try so hard to stay away from the typical paintings... not that they are not beautiful but I love and enjoy being bold and unique along with being extreme with color... but I keep wondering if I should paint that old farm house and barn, or that bowl of fruit.... maybe... NAH... my work might not be typical... but neither am I~!~ woohoo!!
Well... I guess I better get to Etsy and see what is going on there...
I really need to spruce up my blog here with new pics and jazz up my layout... *adding to the to do list* but since I am on the laptop it will have to wait a little longer until I get back to the PC.

So much to do... so little time!:~)
