Finished it Friday

Finished!  I finished!  All the art for Winnipeg is done done done.  Here's the latest, full of those lovely Ribbonsmyth silks.  It's based off of a photo from two years ago when everything was flooding.  It's been a pretty slow meltdown this year so far, so I don't think there will be flooding to THAT extent.  (But who knows!?)

Winter Turns to Spring, 2013  for Prairie Ink Restuarant, Winnipeg in May.

I love the lightness of this one.  The entire background is blue, and that worked out so well!

: )  Oh I have so much more to do now- packing, putting together 20 kits for 2 different classes I'm teaching, and then - packing.  oh packing.  And then there's some public speaking.  I need to make a slideshow too.  Taxes?  Oh yeah - it's tax time right?  Okay - nerves are shot.  Did I mention my kids are all home taking turns with spring colds & fevers right now?  lol  (Yes I'm laughing but I'll take all the sympathy I can get.)  Ah, the adrenaline keeps me going.  I'll be bowling with 15 seven-yr olds on Sunday for my baby's birthday.  Party on!

: )

Have a great Spring weekend everyone,

ps. that snow has since melted away

You just keep getting better and better! Yes, that all over blue background is perfect! It's as if the ground is soggy with water as I'm sure it was.
Oh yes, I do remember sick kids. Poor you! It does sound like adrenaline has kicked in.

Oh wow, the blue background had such an impact!
