Last month,my dear friend Sherie,from the internet world of art came for a visit!!
We had soooo much fun!
From the time we picked her up at the airport till the day we dropped her off,we talked and talked and giggled and laughed~sometimes so hard,well, we even leaked,from our eyes!heehee
Today I am sharing photos of the time spent together and some of the treasures we created.
so,grab a cuppa- lots of photos ahead!
Not only did Sherie arrive with art journaling supplies,but with gifts galore!
Look at the stash of stamps she gave me!
Sweet Sherie brought something for Rile and a special toy for Chum,aka Chumski as well.")
One of Sherie's requests was to see Lake Ontario.
We took a ride to Chimney Bluffs and strolled the lake shore for treasures
After the lake,
we stopped at the Pie Boy stand for some
Heluva Good Cheese and an apple pie.
The pie lady who was not impressed with our antics...
sharp,extra sharp...no xxx sharp,no curds,let me try the curds,no I think I want the xxx,better give me back the curds as well....
too many flavors to choose from!
Here,we took Sherie to an auction-OMGosh she was like a kid in a candy store!!!
This was too much fun!
Riley checking out the heavy equipment ")
Sherie"guarding"her lot that she was to bid on!
After a few auction etiquette lessons,Sherie was like a pro!(except for saying out loud how awesome something was,then everyone running over to check it out and i lost the bid!heehee
Not like I needed that bin of old rusty tools anyway!
After all the lots outside were done, we moved under the tent for some fun
check out Some of the auction views....teeheehee
At the end of the auction,Sherie had won most of her bids and we were so proud of her sticking to her guns with what she would spend on each one!
When we got home it was time to sort through the treasures...there is actually a bit of a tune we sang before each piece was pulled from the box...
dun dun dunnnn lol
This is what I came home with.I scored!
Don't know why I had to have it,just did! Probably will list it for sale-just thought it was cool!
Even though we created in the barn in the daytime,we set up shop in the livingroom by the fire place and created there in the evening.
We both did some journaling...actually Sherie is fab at this and rocked out some cool pages!
I also managed to journal a few pages...
next are the altered pieces we worked on...
only sneak peeks from me as mine is not finished. Geesh I spent almost 2 days just on building texture!!
However,Sherie's piece is fabulous and done.
here is her altered cigar box!
don't you love these wooden dolls!!
Gorgeous is what I have to say!!
Something I asked of Sherie,was to create some of her artwork on the wall in the art barn.
and my friend was happy to do this for me
here she is in her zone with her muse
I am so grateful for the artwork Sherie created and grateful for the friendship we have created!
Thank you my dear friend,for everything! xxoo
This was a fabulous visit and I look forward to the next!
So happy to share this with you and hope you enjoyed it as well!
Peace to you ")
