friday fun .... and shopping .....



i woke up this morning to my little boy crawling into my bed .....
i got up and dressed in my favorite art jeans .... that i haven't worn since march or so ......
sophie said, you're going to change clothes before you come to my class room... right?
we had breakfast...
i walked the kids to school....
i walked the dog .....
i came home for a quick email check before arting in the basement .....
but WHAM .... no quick email checking for me!!!
instead i had an email from jerry's artarama ... my favorite online art store .... GREAT prices ..... and i think, they must have had a corporate meeting and said, wow, e hasn't ordered anything lately .... we better send out a coupon ..... because i only shop with a coupon ... they have the best prices and then with a coupon too? bliss ... art bliss..... inexpensive art bliss ..... inexpensive art bliss with a coupon ..... a really nice coupon .... give them a try ..... i especially like the edge canvases .... you buy them in sets of three or six .... and they are SO worth it ...... well priced ... so .... i bought six by six canvases ... 12 by 12 canvases ..... 24 by 24 canvases .... and 30 by 30 canvases ..... i skipped my usual 18 by 18 cause i still have plenty .... and my new favorite game board thing doesn't work on 18 by 18 ..... i didn't get the other fave 36 by 36 ..... cause i think i have three still ..... and i bought some mats .... to see how they are .... with gift giving of my prints in mind .....

then.... because once you get the shopping bug, you have to keep going ..... i shopped for clock bits ..... so i could make my newly ordered 12 by 12s into clocks ......

then i went to the bank and the post office .... my blogorama gifts are in the mail .... to atlanta, new york and oregon ......

then i walked the dog again ....

and then ... FINALLY ... i got to my studio and did some happy art fiddling ... nothing photo worthy .... but i'm getting there ....

but i needed to stop and have lunch ..... and saw my computer ... and decided the sooner i sent out the coupon, the better chance that some happy reader will actually decide to use it ....

on saturday, my family is doing a lung cancer walk with about 70 people from church .... in celebration of a wonderful friend whose life was lost to lung cancer .....
i'm leading children's chapel on sunday ....
i'm teaching my journaling class on sunday .....
and, i SHOULD clean closets..... getting the winter clothes more accessible...
and, i hope to get in plenty of art time ....
so, click on the jerry's artarama link ....now happy shopping ... happy weekend ......
