That's the word for me, I finished moving out of the old house and have done nothing for 2 weeks. I have to still paint my art room, finish tiling the basement bathroom, sketch my design for the mosaic mural I am doing on the fireplace surround, stain moulding...blah blah blah...yeeech!

I've owed a friend an ATC for weeks now and it finally went postal today except it wasn't an ATC, I painted a 5x7 instead as a birthday gift:



It's the cover (or one of the several different covers over the ages) of "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" a favorite book of hers - I hope she likes it. I enjoyed painting it but wish I had had a bigger picture to go from!





It has been terribly cold here (rain, snow mix) and it's only October, scary to think of what this winter will bring. A bit of advice to anyone installing tile in the kitchen or bathroom - INSTALL A FLOOR WARMING SYSTEM! Trust me on this, they are very inexpensive and heaven to walk on when it's cold out!

Here freezing..................at the Shores
