How is everyone? I hope by now most of you in the Northern hemisphere are seeing true signs of spring. I am thrilled to see my lilac and forsythia bushes budding!
It's going to be another crazy, busy week so my post will be a bit longer as it is my only one for this week.
Last Thursday hubby and I went to support our local PBS station and to be part of the taping of the new show Celtic Thunder
is putting on this year:
Here we are with two of the CT members Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly. They are the nicest guys! They just released their own CD and we have tickets to see them in town in a few weeks:) Not only that, but we have secured tickets for the new Celtic Thunder show in town in September and we got 5th row seats!!! I could have gotten the second row but I wanted an aisle seat so I could get up as often as I wanted without interrupting anyone behind me cuz I just gotta dance:)
Saturday night we went with a group of friends for dinner and then a show at The State Theater
in Easton-the same theater in which we recently saw Il Volo. Dinner was at River Grille
and take my word for it , everyone's meals were amazing! Forgot my camera:(
And since I did forget my camera for my T Stands for Tuesday
gang over at Altered Book Lover
I took this pic which is where I usually am with my coffee on Tuesday mornings:) Would love for you to join us-a diverse and fun group!
Here is the show we caught after our dinner Saturday:
This is the write up- if you are able read it-not sure if you can click for a larger image:
What an absolutely AMAZING show!!!! Granted, they do NOT look like the Beatles, nor do they dress like them but all you had to do was close your eyes and you would swear you were at a Beatles concert!
Last night I was at a girl's night hosted by our son's girlfriend Kyra -which also turned out to be a bit of a birthday celebration for me and it was SO nice to meet some of her family and friends!
And today- well, it happens to be both my blogiversary (4th) and my birthday (??)! Yes, "beware the Ides of March
I remember when finally deciding to take the blogging plunge that I would coincide my first post on my birthday. Each year I have my previous year's posts made into a book so soon I'll have another printed:) Not doing much today. Todd and Kyra are getting take out and bringing it for dinner as hubby has to work until pretty late.
Thursday is St. Patrick's Day and I always become Irish for the day. My dear friend LuAnn is taking me for lunch at our favorite Irish place
Linking my card to the Simon Wednesday Challenge
(A bit o' green).
Still with me? thank you!
The top photo is the original and I just played with the other two to see her with brown, and green eyes. French newspaper was glued to the journal page and white washed with gesso. I then drew the girl using several colors of Stabilo All pencils
going over areas with a wet brush. The background was painted with acrylic paint and then a stencil was used for the words.
