Thankful

Tonight I have been visiting a few of my favorite blogs, as you can see, by looking down the right hand side of this page I have many favorites! Leah, on her blog : paper blossoms says "don't forget to be thankful for something" I got to thinking about that and I must confess to taking things for granted all to often. On reflection of my day I just want to say that I am very thankful to the wonderful friends around me. All of my online friends who encourage and inspire me along the way, and my 'real life' best friend, who has been away on holiday , but has now returned home. It is wonderful to have her back. And today I am very thankful to friends who pitch in and help, without even being asked. This weekend Camden and I were going to be digging up our septic tank that has been having a major hissy fit, but when we arrived home from town tonight I spotted the top of someones head only just visible, a very special friend was down in the septic tank with a spade cleaning it out....now it takes a very generous friend to do that, the smell was horrid even from a distance, let alone being down there amongst it..... So I am feeling very very thankful in deed!!

My photo tonight is of one of the very first ATC cards I ever created. All going well I will have something new to pop on my blog soon.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
