More writing from the women's workshop. I chose to keep the words:
- day dreaming
This is more on the guitar theme and being happy about living in Texas on a summer morning.
I remember JB was bopping around me on the morning I was painting this and I asked him to give me a word. The word was cow.
We had recently discussed how after I got married my initials were C.W.O. using my maiden name. And then if you put the O in the middle with the first and maiden initials on the side then you have c O w. I chose to use my middle name initial after that little discovery but the boys and I giggled about it.
So there you have it- I'm Creative cOw.
Though, I will not be signing my artwork with Creative cOw, thank you very much!
Stretch your creativity today by going to House of Shine and committing to send a brief note of appreciation to todays Yellow Envelope Project nominee. You'll be glad you did.

I'll replace the image when I'm able to get a better one out in the sun.
Maybe I'll leave and update any progressions.

Today's song just makes me feel good! Every time I hear it. I don't know what a 57 Chevy is but I'm sure I would like it! Okay- I probably wouldn't give it another thought if I saw one. In a picture or in person.
This past Saturday I posted a page from my journal and you can see a few words of the lyrics on one of the pages. This is what I mean when I say I include song lyrics.
If you need a pick me up, this it:

The black parts at the top right are covering up notes I had taken at that retreat. They weren't important to remember. I was playing with the guitar series idea. While I was painting, I had my iPod playing. Eric Clapton's Rock & Roll Heart and Jason Mraz's I'm Yours were two songs that played that morning.
Utah is a great place to visit and I'm glad that I had a chance to live that adventure but Texas, I'm Yours!
And, House of Shine- I'm yours, too! Check out House of Shine today to see who was nominated for the Yellow Envelope Project. All it takes is 10 minutes and 44 cents. You'll make a difference today.

I fell in love with song watching Julia Roberts and Durmot Mulroney (sigh, he is so handsome) in My Best Friends Wedding. I prefer the recorded version over the live version attached here but it's a sweet song.
Take a peek.

Bleh! Still reflecting on my life on this page, talking about how I could entertain myself for hours as a child. I had big dreams but was always too afraid to pursue any of them. At the end I'm trying to convince myself to believe in, well- myself.
I wonder how that's working out?
It's never too late to be who you might have been and one day I will be a painter.
And, it's never too late for you to join House of Shine spread more shine by taking 10 minutes out of your day to write a brief note to today's Yellow Envelope Project nominee.
