Day 11 Madga of the extra long neck plus vids and tuts

I have been down for the count for the last couple of days
I think I have the flu  I have not had the flu for years.  But
I feel all achy, and no energy, and other things you don't want
to hear about.  But I have some great news , my daughter
got engaged last Saturday in Disneyland, it was a
surprise.  I am so happy for them, I just think the finance (aka the boyfriend)
is wonderful.  They have been together for about 7 years, 5 of them living together.  So\
I guess they know each other pretty well.  So I don't know when the wedding is
I think its next year.  You will be the second to know once I find out.
Okay enough about me, heres why you really came some vids, slim
pickings, is no one using youtube anymore, come on people. we love
your videos
this one is by anna mason in my opinion a watercolour master
and she is not shy to help others, I like that people helping people
the next one is a great website I learned about from carrie loves carrie
she cooks great food, makes great alcohol free drinks (or you can add if you wish)\
don't skip by this one its good I promise
We all want to take every class out there, but cant afford every one, you have to pick and choose, and even then you cant take them, so here is a free video Soul Comfort offered ,
Here is a vid on how to paint people, I have a really hard time with that, but I am going to give
it a try

Another good video by someone new to me,

but I like her style

I am a constant reader, trash ,good books, etc.  I just read a new
book by JR Ward, called Burbon Kings, going to be a series, but
its a great book, I got it from the library.

now I think Julie is a great sharer, and a good artist, also you get to
get your art out there, and be seen, and see others,

We all love Kim Dellow also a great sharer and has that show your face friday

paint party Friday another great place to show your art

  10. I hope you are feeling better. I like your long-necked girl with her flowery background. It's very bright and cheerful. Thanks for the book suggestion. I found it at my library and put it on hold, 9 readers ahead of me. That's good since I just picked up 3 mysteries that I had on hold yesterday. Take care of yourself. And congratulations to your daughter.
