Lennon and Gourds

My dearest pal, Laurie made this for me. What a great birthday present. She's the best. {Thanks again, Cracker.} Isn't it beyond words. It's a mixed media of acrylic paintings. You can see more of her wonderful work here:

For some gourd decor, Aunt Sue sent my younger daughter a wonderful gourd bunny for Easter, it lights up, has a big pink tail and a floppy ear. Bet Courtney will be happy to see a floppy ear. Thanks Sue.

Off to the studio, to work with that Graphic 45 paper. Hope my friend Lisa, framed hers and is using the rest for scrapping.

Remember, never never never give up! {Winston Churchill}

Art history trivia: Around the 17th century people wrote poems, drew pictures, wrote about hobbies, pasted news articles in a Common form book. Many decorated the book with wall paper. Along the way it grew in different forms. Sound familiar? Scrapbooking!
