Under the Sea!

UPDATE July 7, 2018: I missed the beach trip with the Chapman’s this year…beach hair, flip flops and sand between my toes. The next best thing to paradise is to get lost in my art room!

Sigh…I didn’t put out Easter baskets this year.  I don’t have little children anymore. My sons are 27… Continue reading Curiouser and Curiouser
