A Valentine Canvas

I paid $1.00 for this canvas last week.
I painted it bubble gum pink with basic acrylic paint. I then free handed a large heart and gave A and O a palette of pink, purple, red, and white paints.
I was incredibly impressed with how they worked together to create a masterpiece without any suggestions or input from me.

Is it necessary to say that I LOVE IT?!?
A valuable piece of art for $1.00.

Where have I been?

Let's see...
-I have been enjoying every possible second with these creatures. -I (along with my sweet Scotty) have been cleaning, painting, and fixing up our very first rental property (pictured below). We finally took the plunge, and God has truly blessed us with the sweetest renters.
-I have been teaching 18 crazy, yet adorable preschoolers.
-I have been researching homeschooling.
-I have been fostering my face-to-face relationships.
-I have been mentoring.
-I have been redecorating.
-I have been removing clutter and simplifying. I have taken countless (double digits) SUV loads of clutter to my local thrift stores.
-AND...believe it or not....I have been READING...a lot!
