Plans for this Weekend?

One things that I plan on doing this weekend is to try to make this YUMMY cake. I found it on The Pioneer Woman Blog. She calls it PIG CAKE!!! Funny name huh? It's made with mandarin oranges,yellow cake mix, whip cream and of some other ingredients. The cake seem easy! I like easy. :)  I love Ree's blog she shows you what to do step by step with pictures. I have tried a few of her recipes and I must say I've liked them all. So I know that this one will be a winner.

I'm going to try to paint this weekend. I bought two 10x10 canvases and I'm still trying to figure out what I want to paint on them. I bought them with the intention to make them into a set. I think I know what I want to paint on them ...but you know me that can change at any time. Do you guys have any suggestions? Maybe one of your comments may inspire my next painting ?

Fun in the Snow!

Just wanted to share some pictures with you guys!! I live in the South so we are always surprised when we get snow!!! The city literally shuts down!! So, a few weeks ago this is what I was stuck at home doing!!! Playing in the snow!! My girls have never really seen it was so cute to see how their eyes lit up when we told them to look out the window!!! They love it! We made snow angels, threw snowballs and then built this snow bunny!!! It would have been bigger but they started complaining about being cold. ( Those wimps) I did spend some of  that time painting and I will be posting those later.

Time Lapse Video:Painting 2009 KreepshowPeepshow Channel

I love You Tube. Sometimes I go there and search for new artist. I simply search for mixed media artist or time lapse painting. I like to see how they put things together. In the beginning I learn about alot of new products by watching what other artist used and how they used them. The artist above is New to You Tube her channel is listed above as well. Go and check out some of her art on her blog. I think its really Kool!!! I encourage you guys to go and take a look at some of the artist on you tube you may learn something New...I'm always inspired by their work!!!
