We've Got a little Problem Here!

Dear Diary,

I think my head is going to explode! There have been eighteen 14 -16 year olds over here since 11:30 am and they have been playing Rock Star loud for the past 2 hours - It is 6:50p.m. There are 5 left - I have given them until 7:00 pm. After that they are out of here! I'm afraid I'm going to snap. You may see this episode on the Biography Channel next season.

By the way - The above is a 12 x 12 piece that I need to finish before Monday @ 11;30 AM. I am hopefully going to teach a Jr. High after school Art class this fall in Chandler (if enough students sign up). My new friend LuLu, who creates beautiful art, taught us an artful portrait class this morning. She went over techniques we could use to teach the students. I had a good start on it this morning but about mid way through the party, I went into my little Art room and covered up what I had done. I have a whole new image of myself in my mind now. Not only do I deserve to wear a crown in my self portrait, I need to wear a cape as well. Hey Ya'll! I'm Bigger and Better than I started out this morning! I've got nerves of steel! I'm going to paint a face that any menopausal overweight 52 year old mother of teen agers could be proud of. I'm a role model!!!

Hi Lisa, I am glad mine are beyond the teen phase.
I look forward to seeing what you do with your canvas., it looks interesting already!
Thanks for the comments on my dominos, they are the plastic dominoes, with alcohol ink and rubber stamping.I have used spray varnish over the top of these as I want them to be hard wearing. Email me any time if you want to know more :-)

You are a much nicer mom than I am. If all those kids showed up at my house I would have put them to work painting my walls!

Well, I came by to see if you had anything else exciting on your head since my last, too long ago, visit. I am sad to say I am a bit disappointed you are not modeling any undergarments in new and clever ways, but delighted to see that your house is the hang out place. It may drive you crazy, but isn't it wonderful so many kids love being there so much they don't want to leave! Tells me I should come over and stay awhile too - must be something good and magical about your place!

Love the start of this collage piece! So many lovely layers!
