So many projects, so little time

Playing with watercolors on my new cold press  pad.

I have had very little time to do anything, even though I have a few projects I want to start this month.

I also have some exciting news. I went to one of those power training classes today, as part of my promise to be a bit healthier... I am doing ok post intense workout: my hair does not hurt.

Also, we are going to the Bahamas in a few weeks. I've never been to the Bahamas and I am looking forward to some great sketch spots :)

I will share some of the projects I will be working on. Surprise, surprise.

Hello Ana! I adore your sweet little birds! I was just talking about the Bahamas with my husband. It would be wonderful to bask in the hot sun and listen to the waves... I have ten inches of snow and a harsh blowing single- digit temperature right now...but, hey, it's sparkling white and I do have summer in my journal, right?! Have a great new week. ~ kathy

Oh I miss the Bahamas. It's a beautiful and relaxing escape...and one my favorite cruising spots. I love taking the ferry to Paradise Island and visiting the aquarium. Just thinking about it brings me peace. I hope you enjoy your time there and share more of your beautiful work!

I love the Bahamas. There is no "time" there. You eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired, and play the rest of the time. Have a wonderful visit.
Hope you don't mind that I linked to your post about the calendar.
