Pure Chaos!!

It has been crazy here at the Staton homestead....lots to do and so little time. With the start of summer comes tons of sleepovers, and hungry, bored kids.

Once I get everyone settled, and before more fighting breaks out or someone gets hungry or thirsty again....its off to the studio for some creative play....

I have been enjoying my Layers of Love online class, and have really enjoyed using a smaller paint brush to do my pages. Before beginning this class, I would select the biggest paintbrush in my collection and cover the page with a single color....now, well, its a smaller paintbrush, and lots and lots of colors!!!
Otherwise here, its summertime, and that means you will usually find us at a baseball field....long, long days of baseball. My son made the All Stars team, so life is full of baseball games, practices, and more games!!

And....it seems that I have a new companion in the studio these days....I just love watching a child paint....no worries, no woes....just pure painting for the heck of it....and that is what we have here...sheer joy!!

I hope you enjoy the bliss and maddness that summer brings....I sure do, although at times it is chaos...
Until next time,
