Birmingham, AL— It was another fabulous weekend with my best friends Kelley, Shona and Amy! Our first, get-together for 2010 was spent primarily chatting in Kelley's kitchen over wine and miscellaneous appetizers. The big event was our trip to Sips n' Strokes, like a Paint your own Pottery place but you actually get to paint your own painting while sipping on wine—bonus! What a simple, yet ingenious concept! The featured painting of the evening was this lovely flower. I think they're all masterpieces. I love you girls!

I painted these daisies from a photograph I saw in the Feb/March issue of Artful Blogging Magazine—my new favorite magazine. Madeline Beishline took the gorgeous photo and you can find it on her blog at madelinebea.blogspot.com. She's inspired me to start carrying my new camera with me wherever I go because you never know what you might see! Ok, so I haven't remembered to bring my camera with me anywhere yet, but I HAVE seen lots of great photo opps! Hmmm.

Save money this year! Instead of taking a bunch of kids to the movies, make your family room a theater— complete with rows of comfy chairs, a candy concession stand, a toy cash register, play money for all to spend and, of course these yummy Popcorn Cupcakes! Dim the lights and press play. Viola! You’re at the movies!
Frost the cupcakes with white icing.

One morning on our way to daycare when Wesley was three, he asked curiously looking out the window, "Mommy, are they having a bird meeting?" I looked and saw a bunch of birds on the telephone wires. "Yep, they sure are!" I agreed. Every morning after that he acknowledged the bird meeting in progress. Yes, in today's hectic world, even birds have meetings.
This painting is my homage to bird meetings around the world.
