Some new houses

So.... what happens when the kids are away....... Mom sleeps, lol.

However..... due to some really sad news.... I had to find a way to get my mind of things.... so in between all those naps.... I've been painting houses. I've been working on 3 sizes... like this little Monopoly house...

I made several sets to go on Etsy..... Here I'm using a Monopoly house and a hotel... the wooden ones.... They've been painted with 3 layers of brown paint, a layer of the crackle medium... and then the top layer. And all the windows and doors are stamps I carved myself out of the end of a pencil eraser... pictures are hazy though.... so I'll have to wait till I can get some better ones! The humidity is terrible here! It's just too darn hot!

This is the last type of house I painted. They're some kind of Lego houses? Found them at the thrift store in one of those grab bag bags.

As for the sad news.... My oldest dearest friend called me yesterday to tell me that her baby sister had been hit by a car and passed away Saturday morning. She was 25... with 2 little kids. I grew up with this family! Spent everyday at their house.... And everywhere that me and my friend went.... the little sister went, too. She was my baby sister, too. And it kills me that I can't be there with them.... I just want to hug her and tell her I love her! She knows it.... but its just not the same.

Life is just too short!

Please remember to tell the people who mean the most to you that you love them.... You never know when life will change and you'll miss you chance! I love you baby girl! LYLAS always and forever!

Until Next Time......
