Last month my mom sent out a huge box of watercolors, paper, brushes, books & dvd's. I finally pulled them out tonight and am trying my first watercolor painting while watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I need something to do while I wait for colors to dry.
So far, I've put on 2 color washes and I may have permanently glued the bristles of one brush with frisket. I'll post a picture of the finished result - unless it sucks, in which case, I never posted this. You heard nothing.
I found out today that Ikea sells Christmas trees for $20, AND they give you a coupon for $20 off a purchase of $75. I checked and our neighborhood has a tree recycling program, so we just have to leave the tree by the curb on the pick up days. If I can talk or trick Gord into braving Ikea, that's what we'll do. And we'll just chain the cats up in the closet or something til new years. Mwahaha.
