Duluth Rose Garden

This past weekend my husband and I took a day trip to Duluth. I had never been there before, but my husband was sure I would love it. I did a little research and learned that they had a rose garden, so I definitely wanted to check that out. It was gorgeous! Because of my love of flowers, it felt like heaven on earth... I could have stayed there forever. These are a few photos I took:
 






I could easily have spent hours there taking pictures. I think I'm absolutely going to make a trip there every summer to take pictures. You can never have too many! I'm feeling very inspired to paint after visiting such a beautiful place, so hopefully I can do that pretty soon.
 
I hope you're having a great week! God bless!

New Toy

I was so excited to receive this Artograph LED 300 Digital Projector today! It's a very belated graduation present from my husband. I never thought I would be interested in a projector, but this one is great! Because it's digital, it can be hooked up to the computer, ipad, smartphones and flashdrives. I've been wanting to start painting larger, and I think this will really help. I can use my smaller drawings to create larger pieces. Of course I can also project my photographs. What I really love about this projector, aside from the fact that it's digital, is that it can be used in daylight. Many projectors only work in complete darkness. This projector will also project movies and play music. I have yet to actually play around with it, but I'm excited to see what it can really do, and how it will aid me in my work. :)
 
I hope you're having a great day!

Sale Item of the Week

Hi all! I have a new sale-item-of-the-week on Etsy and it's this totally cute Prayer Flag table runner. I don't know what it is about these fabrics, but I just love them. I've made a large luncheon cloth for my grandmother with it, and I've even made a table runner for myself using the fabrics. They're colorful and fun for spring or summer, without being too bright.
 
This runner is on sale this week for $25 with free shipping.
 
Have a great week!
