A Different Kind of Poppy

Eclipse Again...

...and I am just as excited. You always catch different things every time you see a movie.

Jeff and I are going to go see Eclipse with MAMMa and Daddy Vinnie tomorrow. The guys have not seen it, so it will be fun to see what they think.  I am sure that Vinnie will like it more, he has read the books, Jeff is just going cause he loves me.  Sweet eh?

Tonight we watched Remember Me.  I had seen it at the theater and this was the first time that Jeff saw it.  It is such a good movie. 

I placed my first order out of the new catalog today, now it will be like Christmas morning waiting for it to arrive.

After watching the movie, I whipped this little card up.  I love these little bears for coloring, they are the perfect size.  There is a new baby Build a Bear stamp in the new catalog, it is so cute too.

I colored using the ink pads and a blender pen. Tip: When using a blender pen with watercolor paper, it is best to use a nice new moist one.

I have had quite a few people email me asking about how I watercolor, I did a tutorial a couple years ago, you can see it here.  I hope it helps.  If you live in Arizona, make sure to sign up for my newsletter I will be teaching a watercoloring class in August.

Well this old chick is headed to bed.

Have a great Friday and thanks for stopping in.
