One of my dear friends and loyal readers that I've known since 8th grade is tying the knot! I was ecstatic to learn that she is having a Gatsby themed wedding! It's such a fantastic idea when the date is New Year's Eve! It was even more exciting when she gave me the honour of designing a "Save the Date" sign for her clever engagement pictures! EEE!! It was also so great to be a part of my first LynnDee Photography shoot! Jody is an incredibly talented photographer and friend that I have the pleasure of knowing.For the Love of Letters while I was working on this. It was tough and time consuming. I give Mrs.Barrett soooooo much credit for making so many incredible chalkboard designs time and time again. She's so inspiring!

I haven't had many opportunities to paint landscapes, but last month, my host mumsies invited me to turn one of their favourite photographs into a painting. What I learned from this experience is that I need to paint more landscapes because they can be very challenging.
This settles it, I seriously do not see enough sheep in the States. They are such characters.
This is no mere screen saver, folks!
I am so thankful that I had such a loving host family during my studies abroad. What an amazing experience! If Patty and Nat ever read this, THANK YOU!!!!
This husky is a really sweet dog, but she's had a crazy month! She ran away and spent the night in the clink, was attacked by a porcupine (she had around 50 quills in her poor little snout and tongue), AND she was sprayed by a skunk!!! We just need to pray that she doesn't get in anymore trouble!
As devoted readers of LaPine Design can attest, I love movie posters. I have a hard time resisting them whenever they hand them out at theatres or video stores (another one of Red Box's shortcomings), and I probably have 50 or so rolled up in my closet...just in case I should ever need them.
Even though I'm not a huge fan of X-Men (What do their fans call themselves? X-meners? Mutants?), I stopped dead in my tracks upon seeing these brilliant designs. It also didn't hurt that I'm absolutely obsessed with the ultimate bromance between James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender! Could they BE any hotter?!?
And, just because I can, I'm going to post my favourite McAvoy and Fassbender moment...for now.
So you know, there are few videos on youtube that can hold a candle to this.
And, here's the proud recipient holding my pint sized model!
Thanks for another great opportunity to paint, Sharon!
