I've been craving solitude, me time, quiet time. Maybe its my life's craziness right now with my husband's health issues along with my work as a teacher. Crazy teenagers are tons of fun but can wear you down. I want to take a walk, collect colored leaves, and bake muffins.
I had a lot of fun making this page. It began with me moving paint around on the page, and then letting the paint tell me what should go on the page. Stamped trees, a painted fence and a stamped crow. The pumpkins are cut off a cookie box from Trader Joe's.
I am linking up to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting. I haven't posted for a couple of weeks, but its good to be back.
I am also linking up to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is Indian Summer/Golden October hosted by Valerie.
So I'm taking Friday off from work. Smiling me! I don't know if the weather will cooperate with me going outside to walk, but we desperately need rain. Besides, the joys of hanging home in my pajamas is really appealing. The perfect day to lounge and sleep late and recharge. I am very excited about this, especially since I get to miss the pep rally at work. This week at work has been spirit week culminating with the Friday afternoon a pep rally. The kids have been getting more crazy every day. We've had dress up days every day this week, including pajama day and twin day and it gets them just a little bit unfocused. But the school has had lots of good energy going around.
Not sure whether I will do much of anything this weekend, but I am planning on enjoying it. Hope you enjoy yours.
And as always, thanks for stopping by for a visit
