Last weekend, for my birthday, Becca threw me a painting birthday party, which is what I secret hoped for after seeing a post about a Bob Ross party a few weeks prior. This was a total surprise, by the way, and the girl even played music I love (basically 90's tunes!).
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish the painting I started there until today!
Actually, today has been a pretty amazing day, full of good food, friends, art, and even laundry. I know - Samie, why did you have to mention laundry? - but it was nice to take it slow and do some while painting, reading, or rocking out to music. I certainly haven't worked on a painting at home in ages, and I'm now I'm re-addicted to art fun time!
Here's the cool thing about the painting above - the word 'shine' is like a mirror (my SO bought me the special Moltow 20th Anniversary Liquid Chrome paint marker and it is awesome). It catches the light and sparkles - just like YOU should! Let that light that is you SHINE and shine BRIGHT. Because the right people will be attracted by how YOU you're being. And if people aren't, they aren't right for you!
I hung this next to my TV so I can see it always and be reminded of how amazing the RIGHT kind of friendship can be!
