The Baker family art event

This weekend my Baker cousins got together for an art part at the Visual Art center in Marshall, Texas. I talked my son into going and taking the lesson.
The goal was to reproduce a painting of our grandparent's home place. The instructors took the participants through step by step instructions on how to paint on the canvas with acrylic paints.
I took photos as the painting progressed. Here's what Shane did;

Hi Rhoda Jayne,
Left you a comment over at MTC board as well but wanted to tell you here what a fantastic job Shane and the rest of the family did on the paintings. I really love your pictures and the group photo of everyone holding their paintings is awesome! What a lovely way to share a family memory. Thanks again for sharing this. I would love to do something like this with my family.

The Holy Family-Kim Bright file

This is my second Kim Bright file & I loved the way it turned out! It took an hour to cut it out and about 4 hours to weed. I just took my time and tried my best.

Nutribullet to the rescue!

I like to make my own laundry soap! There are tons of recipes on pinterest for this and the recipe that I use consists of Arm & Hammer washing soda, oxygen cleaner, smelly crystals and grated Fels Naptha soap.
When I've made this soap in the past it took a lot of time and a little muscle to grate the Fels Naptha bar. When I used the soap in the washing machine the grated soap did not always dissolve.
Enter the Nutribullet! I decided to cut the Fels Naptha bar into chunks that would fit in the Nutribullet container. I used the milling blade and it turned the soap into a very fine powder in just a short time.
I then decided to mix all of the ingredients in the Nutribullet. I was really pleased by the texture of the soap and of the way the Nutribullet made short work of pulverizing the Fels Naptha!


I made this luminary with a BooLand Designs kit, Winter Wonderland . I had forgotten to take a picture of it before Christmas. I had already packed up my battery operated tea lights so I was going to photograph it with a real candle. Not a good idea! I caught it on fire while trying to light it, but I still needed a picture of it. I was blowing on it, laughing & trying to get a picture if it before it disintegrated before my eyes! I'll bet no one else has tried to photograph a team project while it was on fire!
