Today and tomorrow

Today is a big day for me.

Today I celebrate 18 years of marriage with my one and only, love of my life.  After all this time I still adore him to pieces. I am especially grateful for his patience with me as I have been furiously working on my e-course. He’s been helping with home stuff, taking the kids out so I can make my videos, and soothing my tears of frustrations when I hit a road block. He has helped me so much with everything. Every crazy and wild idea I have, he has totally supported.  I know I’ve said it before, but I really couldn’t do all I do without his constant love, support and encouragement.Thank you, honey.

The picture above is of us 13 years ago.  It was the summer before our last year of college. We were heading out on an 8 week trip around the US in a 1974 VW camper-van.  We had so much fun together.


Today is also the first day of my e-course. So far, everything has been going nice and smoothly. I am totally blessed with the  amazing group of women taking this course. Already, they have shared so much about themselves and it’s a beautiful thing getting to know them.  I am so stoked to be on this journey!!


Artfest classes and registration is up today!   yippee! I am really looking forward to seeing my artfest friends again.


I  am heading to Phoenix on Wednesday to go to Art Unraveled. I am going just for the day, since it is a quick 2 hour drive (:P).  I will be taking Karen Michel’s Wood Collage Totem class.  I wasn’t going to go, with the busy week I have going, but the hubby assured me that I need this time away from work and the computer.


Lastly, I have to share Michelle’s giveaway week. If you don’t know Michelle, she is an amazing artist, teacher and business woman. I met her at artfest and she is so kind and so talented. She makes the most amazing art, clocks, banks, sculptures and so much more. Her fun, colorful and funky style is right up my alley.  I would love to get the Owl soap spitter for the boys’ bathroom and the little Owl Doodling for me and maybe even the owl frame and owl clock  – Hoot, hoot!!   And maybe even go holiday shopping for friends and family.  Nothing like supporting a fellow artist and friend, right?!  Please stop by and take a look!

    Happy anniversary!!! You two look so cute in that VW….Hubby and I celebrate our 18th anniversary in August:) 1993 was a good year to get married:):)
    I’m hoping that you offer your e-course again – I’m not able to participate this month but I would love to have the chance another time!

    Regina, congratulations! I love the photo of you two.

    I am so happy to be part of the workshop. The dining room table is covered and bursting with life as I paint the pages. Most importantly (for me), my four year old learned today how to use the gift card!

    I look at that bus, and I know that when I was in my early 20’s, I would have driven one EVERYwhere if I had one. But now, with a 17 year old who is a fresh driver, I look at them and a voice inside my head screams “It’s a death trap!” and clutches at her pearls. And then resumes searching for a ’72 Lincoln Continental for the boy to drive.

    It’s so funny how my perspective changes.

    Happy Anniversary. My husband and I celebrated 18 years this June. I tell everyone that they flew by!
