WOYWW

Happy WOYWW and welcome to my blog! I hope all who visit have a great day :)



So here it is - my desk, properly inhabited by my watercolors (my hubby and I have taken over the dining room table at present to use for studying). I've had that set of watercolors since 8th grade which means they are going on 11 years now! I'm hosting a Colorful Hot Air Ballon Swap at atcsforALL so there are lots of my hot air ballon ATCs around. The fall themed ATCs are finished and ready to mail for a Autumn Foliage Swap :) I just have to find the time to scan and secure them in an envelope.






My dear friend, Brooke, sent a belated birthday present: lots of seeds (and some make up samples, a book about dogs, and a calender with manicures pre-penciled in)! I'll have to figure out where I can plant some of them when the time is right. It was so much fun spreading them all out on the guest bed and looking at all the varieties! I wonder if the apartment manager would mind if I let a gourd vine grow up the deck...


In other new, tests last week went super-well :) and hopefully the one in 1.5 hours will too. It's over neurologic diseases of horses and dental issues (and aging a horse by its teeth). Although I don't want to be a horse vet, I still have to do my best on this test! So I'm off to study just a touch more. Post test edit: I did well enough - Equine med won't prevent me from entering clinical rotations! Heck yeah! I'm going to be Dr. Katie soon enough! Now if people would shut their traps about the test. I hate pre and post test chatter! *puts in head phones* Thank you Pandora for the escape!


Peace and love! Thank you for dropping by!

Hi Katie, thanks for your WOYWW comment. I'm not a member of ATCsForAll (yet), but I had a look and the ATCs I saw so far look absolutely fabulous, so I'll certainly think about joining. Thanks for the tip!

Glad to hear your test is now finished and you can breathe for a few minutes. I love the trees. They are my favorite. Of course all those seeds packets make a lovely photo, too. You are lucky to have a good friend who gave you all those, makeup and a calendar, too. Sorry I'm late, especially since I was #1 this week.

Terry & Kim said...

Lovely colors! Like your desk. Congrats on the great time in the 5k too!

Love those watercolors! Perfect for fall! You need crafting with the heavy load you are studying! Good luck to you!

Ohhh Snap said...

Beautiful watercolors. I don't think they go bad. I have some watercolor pencils I bought in the 70s which still work fine lol. I'm working on using things up more :D.

Congratulations on doing well on your test :D.
