Hi everyone who still reads these things. No, I haven't fallen off the Earth just yet, just waist-deep in everything a mom/wife does while her children are home for summer vacation, while catering to a hard-at-work husband. ;) Took a much needed break, but glad to find time to squeeze in a commission here and there again.

It's a beautiful life, indeed. This year, my husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary, I celebrated my 34th birthday, my oldest daughter became a teenager, and I realized that sitting all day painting was destroying my metabolism (and my house, hah!)  So I put down the brush, jumped on the dance games again, and gave the housewife side of me a kick in the pants. Thankfully, I dropped some pounds, the house got quite a makeover, inside and out, and I found I have a green thumb after all, producing a thriving garden.

Hope you are all having a fantastic summer!
A.J.

Enjoy your break. Id love to discuss placing an order with you when and if you decide to pick up that brush again

That all sounds good - I know I have been doing some gardening while there is sunshine!

I love it! I practiced over the winter with five tomato plants from seeds, didn't kill them (lol) and when spring arrived, I went for the gusto. :-D
