Happy Monday :D

My friend Elsie asked me to guestblog tomorrow and next Tuesday :] I'm working on a new mini-album about Tom and i'll be sharing it there tomorrow :) I have some exciting news! In April, I'm going to be Elsie's houseguest for a few weeks and help her with the Red Velvet Art store and preparations for the Red Velvet Craft Weekend :] How cool! And if you're gonna be at the Craft Weekend, I'll see you there :] I use the back of my hand to adjust the paint on my brush. Does anyone else ever do that? Happy Monday!!

  2. Very exciting news indeed. And how cool that you'll be there for the craft weekend. :D

  7. OMG OMG OMG OMG I am giddy jumping up and down for you! That is so exciting that you are gonna help Elsie and RVA! Oh if you could of heard the squeal I let out in your honor! I can't wait to hear all about it! SO SO COOL! You darling are living such a lovely life!

  8. Oh yes
    the paint on the hands and arms and sometimes, well very often somewhere on my face as well.
    When and how it ends up there is a mystery. ;)
    I've even been to the store once or twice looking like that. :)


  9. *Rockstar*
    plus, I always have paint on my hands - but not on purpose.

  10. ME=JEALOUS!!!

    Sounds amazing! That would be the coolest thing to get to hang out with Elsie. Looking forward to Pretty!

  11. I do that thing with my hands but worse, I use my lips to shape the brush and paint on the face doesn't look so funky, and the worst? when you dip the brush into your coffee instead of the water jar - oh I just hate that! t.x

  12. holy exciting! you deserve it! can't wait for you post! and for the pretty class to begin!
    and i really really want to make it down for the craft wknd the end of april... but not sure i can! it would truly be a dream though!


  13. Looks like we'll actually get to meet each other! Looking forward to it.

  14. YIPPEEEEE!!!!!
    Can't wait, hey Leigh-Ann.
    It will be a VERY NICE birthday surprise.

    Love Momma

  15. oh right on! I'll look forward to your post. Wow that's so awesome that you're going to be her houseguest! You're going to have SO much fun. :) I really wanted to go to the craft weekend, but I think I'm driving down there afterwards, for May long.
    Your Mom says it'll be a birthday surprise.. when is it? Mine's Apr 24th. :)

  16. Thanks everyone :]
