T Stands For Tuesday

Hello again my Tuesday friends!
Running very late today as I slept in :( 
I have to dash off to work but thought I would try a quick post if the slow computer let's me. 
I started a new paint class this week :) One my hubby bought me for Christmas and it is a whole new approach for me.
Let the Paint Speak with Mindy Lacefield.

Here is what I have so far from lesson one. 
 All about building layers of paint and texture.

This is where I am now and there is a lot more to do yet. A totally new look for me so far.
I will have to share an old drink this week as I haven't taken a new one and don't have time to ... I'm pushing it as is :) 
It' s still cocoa weather so this one will do. 
Please dash on over and visit those who really have a post this week . 
Oh and one random thought....


  1. What a wonderful Christmas present off your hubby, the layers are fabulous and I can't wait to see what you do next :-). I love your random thought, it is so true - you can write your own beautiful story in this life :-). Cocoa is such a great choice this time of year, wishing you Happy T Day! J :-)

  2. Looks like an interesting class! I hope you show us the finished piece. And I do enjoy a good cup of coco. Yum! Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  3. You got a wonderful gift, your hubby knows what you like! Have BIG fun! Enjoy your cocoa, just had some here, too - cheers! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  4. Gosh, this sure looks like a real post to me. Wow, you just jumped right into that new painting class! What a wonderful thoughtul gift.

    I love the final random thought. Yes, let's all write beautiful stories this year!

    Happy T Day and Happy New Year, Carol! XOX, Eileen

  5. I agree with Eileen. It looks like a real post to me, too. You are so lucky to have a hubby who gave you such an incredible gift. He knew exactly what to give you.

    Thanks for sharing your cocoa with us for T this Tuesday. It may be an oldie, but it looks fresh to me (grin).

  6. what a fab gift from hubby! I love Mindy's style and have taken a few of her freebie classes. Your project is looking great so far. Love the random thought to bring in a new year. Happy T day and a happy New Year too!

  7. good for you working on a new style...i find many layers a little difficult. i don't want to cover up anything once it's down. you've made a wonderful start...have fun! Happy T day and Happy New Year!

  8. It looks like your new art course is going to be interesting, I'm sure yu will be enjoying it as the weeks go by, this looks a great start.
    Happy T day and Happy New Year.
