Another week and I have the summer off. Teaching is wonderful is so many ways and that is one of them :) My oldest daughter is off to Sweden for the summer today and as happy as I am for her I also feel "homesick" , it has been years since I was in Sweden during the summer and that really is the best time to visit. Here at home I am having fun with some new collage work and some new art projects for the kids the last week of school. Here are some samples of what I have been working on these last few days. My son is graduating High School and that is keeping me busy with announcements and getting ready for the Luncheon. I am very proud that by now 2 of my 3 kids have graduated High School...the 3rd is in 4Th grade and will graduate as well years. :)

Lots of ideas but not enough time....

There is too much going on right now....and when this happens no ART is made....My son is graduating High School in just a few weeks and I had this idea to make all the announcements and invitations. This is turning out to be next to impossible since I need 50 announcements. Sure, I have all the card stock, ribbon and stickers I need incl. the best rubber stamp in the shape of a cap but....this will take days. The other idea was to have them printed but I cold not find anything that I even liked just a little bit...they all look very tacky or girly...

In the end my husband has the best idea (I guess :)) and that is to print the cards ourselves and add some nice stamps and stickers.... hate it when he is so right about stuff and especially when it comes to my art (handmade cards).

Today I am off work and will spend the day finding addresses and start writing the envelopes since they will NOT be printed on labels. I did find the brand new "sharpie" pens that supposedly are not going to bleed through. We will see.

Art Ball at Sacramento State University

I drove up to Sac State Friday to be a part of my daughters participation in the Art Ball Art Show. It was amazing!!! and not only that it was over 100 degrees and no A/C in most of the galleries. Her art is amazing!!! see for yourself. We also spend some precious time together, it was 3 months since I last saw her. Congratulations Kristin and have a wonderful summer with no homework and plenty of time for new ART.

I am such a proud Mama!!! Just look at my daughters creation!!! if you click on it you can see it much better :)

She is an Art Student at Sacramento State University and recently started creating these wonderful trees....Of course, I am her mother and she could paint just about anything and I would love it but these trees are special and I know it. Good luck baby and let your art take you places you always wanted to explore. I love you always. Mamma
