    Oh, you know, I probably will just because at some point I'll have an idea that has to come out. How long have you been painting?

    Like, three months.

    Just get enough supplies for one painting so if you don't like it you won't have wasted a ton.

    I started because I asked my husband to paint me somethig for my office wall. He took forever and ever so a girl at work said I should back him into it by saying I'll do it myself. He said good. So I went and bought supplies thinking that would encourage him into it. Nope. So I told him again I was just going to do it. He said fine again. So I did.

    My first one was the first flower painting I put up. I bought this really beautiful wrapping paper that I had a tiny bit left and I didn't know what to do with. So I did a painting inspired by it. If you look closely you can see some of the flowers have flower pattern. That's the paper.

    I used to brew beer and made some nice dark ones. It's not that difficult with the kits out there today. It's certainly a little easier than wine. You need a warm place for the carboy at this time of year. I actually miss making the beer.

    I keep staring at this. I'd feel more comfortable if it didn't keep looking back.

    I missed this earlier somehow. Very nice! My husband and I made a swag once a looong time ago (when we were just friends, not even dating). It was pretty, but it took FOREVER. I do remember it was mostly eucalyptus and smelled so good. I like wreaths a lot but have never made one; it's on my list. (My list is long, and you guys are just making it longer.) I'm afraid the cats couldn't resist a swag, though.

    Sundrop, that is gorgeous. And I was just going to say, eucalyptus always smells so nice on them. A long time ago I tried working with dried flowers, but I was like Jill Kinmont trying to pick up a potato chip out of a bowl. I just crushed the delicate flowers and greenery.

You never know til you try.
