Paint Party Friday and One Hundred Mandalas

Friday has come and gone and I'm late posting once again. I did have the art done... I just got involved with cleaning out my shed that I wore myself out completely. No energy or enough brain power to write a post last night. The shed however looks great :)
Not much art at all this week. Just too busy getting things cleaned up outside and ready for winter. The weather has been beautiful and it's been nice to finally be able to actually do some work with out it hurting my back too much. Perhaps the injections are going to work well. 
The art is two Mandalas done in my journal. Using watercolors, watercolor pencils and Micron pens.
I have started on a small wooden case for the Inspirational Quote Card Deck that I completed last week.  Have only gotten the Gesso and some background stuff done sp nothing to really photograph this week. 
I am finally down to ONE bucket of apples left to do!!!! Almost ready for the HAPPY DANCE.  This week I made 6 quart jars of applesauce , 6 pints of apple pie filling  and several jars of Apple Butter :) and some pineapple, pear & apple marmalade.
The marmalade was an experiment that turned out pretty well. Taste good on English muffins and makes a great sauce on baked chicken breast ♥♥♥♥ 

Random thought for the day...

Don't forget to check out the other great art this week ...just click on the
