Holding Pattern

I feel like we are in a holding pattern.  We are waiting to move to a new place and because of that I have not really been trying to start any new projects.  I have only worked on some art here and there but nothing big and nothing that is really different because its too hard to work on a project in the small place we live in now.  Its very frustrating waiting for something especially when it affects everything.  I don't want to reorganize anything either because I know when you move everything gets all messed up anyways, so as of right now everything is on hold!

Here is my most recent painting below, simple but colorful!
I have been starting work early this whole week, so I better get to bed if I think I am going to wake up by 430 am.

Palm Trees

 Awesome palm trees.  On my drive to work I go by these palm trees everyday, and I just think they are so cool!  I think its because the trunk is so thin, I am always thinking how do they stay up?  I guess most people would just get use to them but every time I see them I think, how cool.

I have been updating my cousins blog for her makeup business, stop by and check it out!

What is your personality? I took this simple test and above are my results.  I guess it reconfirmed what I already knew about myself, but its fun to see!

Out On a Morning Ride

 This morning we decided to ride our bikes to breakfast.  I thought we could make breakfast at home but it turned out we didn't have any milk for coffee and no bread, really we had nothing!

Anyways the first place we rode to was way to crowded! We would have waited till lunch time so we rode to the place we always end up going to Lucas.  They have good coffee and food and there is never a wait!

 Our garden is still doing really good!  I do need to work on it but I just have not had the inspiration yet, maybe later today when it cools down.

I think I am going to do a painting of this cactus!

 Today I went up to my mom's house and we started working on taking pictures of our art and we did some shopping and went to lunch.  I told her your art is great we should try to sell some of it on Etsy.  I asked do you have some we can put up, and the next thing I know we have 3 huge folders of original art!  So we took pictures of everything and started posting it.


Everything looks so good!  
Here are a few of my favorites below.
Sail Boats in Maui, Original Watercolor by Kathy Olson 
Church in Maui, Original watercolor Painting, by Kathy Olson
Bowl of Fruit, Red and yellow Apples, Original Watercolor Painting by Kathy Olson
 Every painting is one of a kind!

Learning How to Screen Capture

I learned something new today!
I learned how to screen capture something!

How did I not know how to do this?
I never thought of just googling how to do this and it is so simple.

 This is how to do it:
  1. Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
  2. Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
  3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
  4. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
  5. Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
  6. Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
  7. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
  8. Type a file name for the image.
  9. Select a file type.
  10. Click the Save button.
SO so simple, now I can show people different things I am looking at or save certain items I want to visit later, from now on I am not going to wait for someone to show me how to do something I am just going to google it!

What I Wore Wednesday!
So I have been taking a picture of most of the outfits that I have been wearing to work and it has helped me to branch out and start wearing some of the clothes I have, but never ever try out.

The shirt above was my mom's shirt that she didn't want anymore, so using my new sewing machine I took it in and now it fits me and looks really cute.

Last weekend I dyed my hair and its ok but I think I am going to have to do it again pretty soon because the color I picked had too much red in it.  Combined with the red shirt above my hair looks RED! Yikes!

Sunday Funday

 I finally got dressed this weekend and went to pick up my dress for the wedding I am going to be in.
I met my mom there and we went to lunch at the Mall and did some shopping.

Earlier in the day I did some ACEO paintings.  It is an original painting that is 2.5x3.5.
When we were out shopping I found this super cute frame at target so I could take pictures for my etsy store.

I can't believe its back to work again in the morning...
