Garrett had his last day of Pre K!

So here's Garrett hugging his teacher goodbye. Garrett is going to miss this daycare. It's the only one he's ever known. It's called Little Arrows Daycare and it's a Christian based teaching which my husband and I really have loved our selves over the years. All three of our children went here and they all learned many good things about God and reading.

Miss Pat was great she was strict but really loves the kids at the same time. A nice lady with a great sense of humor and she really loved our Garrett. One could tell because Garrett loved her back. Miss Pat does foster care too whenever she's not at work always has she just can't get enough kids I guess. Garrett and I saw her the other day at our dentist too, Garrett was so excited to see his friend there. Miss Pat knows our dentist from her church she says he's a decon there. The dentist is so funny he looks just like and sound exactly like Al from Home Improvements funny thing is he name is Doctor Wilson like their neighbor. What a way to confuse and dyslexic!

The little girl with the glasses is name Shaley and real sweetheart! I always wanted to call her Shelby for some reason. I finally get her name and we have to leave, such is life.

These little boys became endeared to Garrett and he called them his dudes! They called him their dudes too. I think it started out that way because they couldn't remember each others name but then it was deffinetely a term of endearment and affection.

This is Garrett with his Joey and little paper Kangaroo they would always put on a board so everyone would know they were there and as a way to start learning name recognition! Garrett wasn't ever gonna leave without his Joey! How about a group hug I said????????

Look at my little stinker holding his nose? I wonder who he thought was smelly all of em or a girl?

Here he is saying me you want me to hug everyone!

Here are Sulli and Andrew, two of Garretts favs!

Isn't that little girl adorable, she reminds me of Darla of the Little Rascles!

Lunch time Garrett never ate lunch there as he was only there three half days a week. One time I had a doctors appointment and he loved eating with his friends!

Something I made for my ArtChix artist or the month!


I actually love how this one came out! Thanks so much to Helga one of my greates mentors! Man that woman can collage! I made this from inspiration from Helga too as she recently went to Paris, amsterdam too that lucky chic!

First I tried one of Helgas newest challenges of placing old reciepts all ove the surface of my canvas. Then I used some magazines I bought from collage stuff, with all kinds of styles and art Neaveau ladies dresses and face from like the 50's! They come through a bit on the finished piece too because I loved that look. So thatnks to Lisa Bush too and all her great shopping.
Next step I painted the entire piece lightly with white gesson and a light blue acrylic paint.
Then I arranged all my twinchies inchies a few odd shapes and my lazor cut eiffle tower. Bought that a while back now I wish I have more of them! Then my next step was griding it all off another of Helga's challenges. For this I also took Helgas favorite technique of using watercolor crayons. I used blues and red thus the title Rosa et Bleu. Finalizing the grid part with black water color pencil. I was lovong this piece with every step more and more and I was really praying to God it would come out well!
I then sprayed the entire piece with fixative and reworked any blurring with my crayons and pencil.
I added a few real 3 d antique buttons all around at different intervals mostly on the sides top and bottom, a few to intigrate the bopttom French ArtChix collage bit.
Finally I added some neat rubons with French letters and words! Isn't it neat! Don't know if I'll be able to part with this one even my family loves it!
