So here are the finished portraits that I will use to make the commissioned paintings with....LOVE LOVE LOVE the way that they turned out! I have also listed them on Etsy...not these exact ones, but these were perfect for an example!

Wow....I am soooo not good at posting on here....I think that FACEBOOK is the reason :) Anyway, here are some of my current projects that I am working on.
*I decided to go in on a Craft Booth from now until the end of the year with a friend of mine. I am making Paper-Flower wreaths that I saw on the Fancy Pants blog :) They are really turning out cute!
*I took an online painting course from SuziBlu (That girl is FuNkY! I LOVE IT!) and just ADORE the results!
*Because of said class, I was asked if I can paint boys. I had never tried, so I decided to try some sketches of my boss' sons and LOVED the results. So now she has commissioned me to do two paintings before Christmas :) :) :)
*From the same painting, I am working on another piece for a friend!
*From the sketches, I am working on a few other surprises for a very close personal friend....MUM'S THE WORD on these :)
THE CREATIVITY IS POURING OUT!!! Maybe it will continue into the new year and help me reach my creative goals...same as last year...1. Make a design team (Look out Memory Works....I am gonna try) 2. Attend a Creative Conference and 3. Maybe get a new Digital SLR Camera. I have to make enough CREATIVE MONEY to do these, so HERE I GO! And with that, I will leave you with some Eye Candy :)

So I have decided that the only way to get out of the creative rut I seem to be in lately is to create! I have made a commitment to make or do at least one creative thing each day, so here is what I did yesterday:

Not sure that Purple was the right choice, but it is done, and now everything else will be easier than taking that first step....I HATE FEELING CREATIVELY BLOCKED!!! What do you do to overcome it? I'll keep up with doing one thing each day in hopes that I get the creative mojo back :)

My Africa

These are some of my images of Africa. The pictures tell the story so much better than I can! I hope that you enjoy!

So I am just shy of three weeks before I leave for Africa and am getting VERY excited about going! I have my shot appointment set for tomorrow....ick. I also will pick up my anti-malarial pills and motion sickness patch tomorrow. It has been a long road since I first decided to go, but what an amazing experience it will be! I have had unbelievable support from friends and loved ones, it is really cool to watch everyone coming together to help me accomplish this! All of my fundraisers have been successful! We had two different Craft Days, a Baked Good Sale, a Sub Sale, and a Bowling Party set for this weekend. I am still short by $800, but I have faith that God will provide!!!! Here is a link to the church where we will be able to blog while away on the trip:
