Happy President's Day!

I love three day weekends!  They're the best.  Holidays almost weren't worth it in the banking industry because you work twice as hard the following Tuesday trying to catch up.  Where I'm at now, there's no worry about falling behind from a day off.  No one else has to pick up your slack.  You just do as much as you can do and that's that!

The weekend was the perfect amount of non-productiveness.  I napped.  A lot.  Especially on Sunday.  I did do stuff that needed to be done like laundry and dishes.  Shiver and Chico went to the groomer and got their nails clipped.  I didn't do anything that didn't need to be done around the house.  I did fun stuff though.  Sadly, I cannot share it with you because I left my cell phone charger at work and my phone is almost completely out of power.  So I'll show you my Wreck This Journal and Enchanted Forest stuff next week.

Here's a sneak peak at one of the pages I was working on in Enchanted Forest.  This was from last week.  I'm still learning about shading techniques.  Overall I'm pretty happy with it, although I do see a few areas that could have been done a little better.  I'm just a beginner though so I'm not going to be too hard on myself.  I shaded that tuft of feathers below the beak with a bit of gray that doesn't come through in the picture.  Who knew that coloring could be so addicting?
My boys really loved joining in the big Blogville Valentine's Day parade yesterday.  They kept themselves busy all last week painting the bus and getting it ready for the big day.  They said they got lots of compliments on it and that a few doggies even asked if they could have a ride in the official Chihuahua Mobile.  They're already planning out how to fix it up for next year's parade!

No one does my job either when there are holidays, I am still catching up from being away the first week of February! Happy President's Day (if that is what you say, I am a Canadian, so I don't know!)

I'm glad you're having a nice three day weekend! I love seeing your coloring pages, and I think your shading technique looks great.

WE know how FUN a three day Weekend can be... and then the Work Week is only 4 days long... that is an ADDED PLUS... RIGHT?
Glad that you had a good time... BUTT sorry that Chico and Shiver had to get their nails clipped...
