Fun Advent Activity

I found this awesome blog today (and maybe I am the last to find it). It is Made by Joel . He has this terrific tiny paper nativity you can print out and color. Then fit in a mint tin. SO awesome. His other paper city printouts are super fun too. Great Advent activity.

New painting

Here is my newest painting, Beets. I'm really happy with it. I love doing these underground cross section ones.  And I loved working with the beet color. I want to do some more with reds. What are some fun red things to paint?

You can see it in my shop here.

Lunch date with bacon...I mean... my husband.

Joffre and I just went on a lunch date thanks to my fantastic neighbors (if you need a babysitter I have two teenage girls who rock the job.). So we went to a restaurant called Bacon Brothers. Yes, bacon is in the title. Good start. I had a hamburger with bacon ground in it. Bacon they cure themselves and with special sauce and ketchup they make themselves. And Joffre's dad is coming into town today (sidetrack YEA!!!) and we are planning on taking him there with Joffre's sister's family next week. So I will get even more bacon..soon. I don't think I have said the word bacon enough in this post.

Joffre and I haven't been on a date in...a long...time. It was lovely.
