Watercolors


[actual size 3 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches]
Pooldad gave me a lovely set of watercolors for Christmas - very nice! Unfortuntely I think the man assumes I have more talent than I actually do [which isn't a lot to begin with :D].

I bravely signed up for a watercolor swap and this was one of my submissions. With the exception of the barn leaning a bit [okay, a lot] I thought it was a decent representation of a farm. Right? What do I know? I live in the suburbs.

Anyway - I am on pins and needles today because the Cricut is coming! THE CRICUT is COMING! It is on the FedEx truck as I type and it is guaranteed to be here by 3 pm, but I know from our lovely neighbors who receive shipments everyday [he is in the import/export business] that FedEx comes to our street everyday at 11 am!

Y'all may never see me again.

[PS - I have to add for all you crockpot owners out there - You MUST, MUST, MUST make this recipe over at Mare's blog. It is a vegetarian chili which even the most carnivorous of men [Pooldad] LOVE! It is the easiest recipe I have ever made and it is so goooooooooood and it freezes great! Please, if you can open a can and stir a pot you will be thanking Mare for years to come.]

That’s a barn? Shows how much art talent I have. I wish I was as good as you.
