Yaaaaaaay Friday!  Got an email from the managing editor over at Stampington Take Ten–looks like they’re gonna run that article on Copics & colored pencils in the Summer Take Ten issue!  Yippeeeeeeee!!!  Anyway, they needed some "stepped out" examples of the process to accompany it, so I messed around in my studio and got that done.

I never really used to be all that big on coloring, but, there is something about it that is sooooooo therapeutic–remember when you were in Kindergarten, and how happy you felt just coloring?

I have been enjoying talking with the students in my online classes–in the one class I gave a homework assignment, and I’m just amazed at how they’ve taken it to heart, and the level of participation just, well, makes my heart happy!

So, in honor of a happy day–a happy (FRI)•day here’s a happy card featuring this sweet little flower pot!

I bolted straight up in bed this morning, realizing I hadn’t set up the automatic coffee maker last night for Dave (he gets up at 6am, and wakes me at 7am with my cuppa and a kiss every day), nor had I set out a work outfit (trust me, after I work my magic, he walks out the door a hunk-a-burnin’-*sharp-dressed* man.  This I know from all the ladies down at the school . . . *wink*  )

But, he had an early morning meeting, and by the time I figured it out, he was already waving a cuppa under my nose, smooching me quickly and headed out the door . . . too late!  He’s wearing a Sponge Bob necktie . . . *chuckle* . . .

I heard this song for the first time, while visiting my sister’s down in CA–she was featured on Regis & Kelly.  The story of how she was discovered on MySpace is amazing and such a happy, feel good one!  Anyway, I had to buy it today, because, it’s *us*!  It’s Dave and I . . . and, man, it gets me right here–>
