So so sorry I have not been around. Life just got a bit busy around here. And every time I want to sit down and write I am summoned by one of my boys to help on homework or their new schedule. But I am okay with that. :)
Many things has happened lately. One I feel a lot better and every day gain the energy I need to be productive, not that I am not in the first place but you know it feels good to be productive. Two I just celebrated my 39th birthday.
My birthday fell on Saturday the 13th of March and I was excited because I knew we would be heading into Louisville. My first present from my wonderful family and awesome husband was a class at the Kentucky Arts and Crafts Museum. It was one of their Saturday workshops. The one I was taking was from a metalsmithing artist Sharon Major. She was going to show how to work with metals to be able to make a Celtic necklace and she would provide the pendant. Most of the skills she was teaching I already knew but its always nice to take a workshop and learn more and also meet others that enjoy the same things you do. So I was very excited that morning to head on into Louisville.

Create your own Celtic jewelry just in time for St. Patrick's Day! Workshop p
While I was taking the class Bo and the boys will be headed to the Frazier Arms Museum then the Science Center. It was a nice time for Bo and the boys to spend together. :)
I was then dropped off and I had some time to kill so I took some pictures in the gallery adjacent to the classroom we will be working in.
The view of Main St. from the 3rd floor. I love the architecture of the buildings.
Artwork from the gallery
The instructor took a picture of me when I came up to the main table to work on a few pieces. My table was the one behind me.
I truly enjoyed the class, met an artist and also met other ladies that were really friendly and creative.
Here is my finished piece.
After my class the boys and Bo picked me up and we headed towards Bardstown Rd in an area neighborhood called the Highlands. They have many neat and eclectic shops, galleries and restaurants. We didn't realize they had a parade there so we ended up parking half a mile away from the restaurant we were headed to. It was okay though because it was a nice walk and we just love the energy of the hustle and bustle in such a small area.
I was taken to Ditto's Grille and the service was awesome and the food delicious and of course what made it even better was my company. :)
Bo and I
Mine was chicken carbonara...yummy
Jared was crab stuffed shrimp
Nick his normal burger
Bo a bbq chicken pizza
The server gave me my choice of dessert on the house and so we were stuffed when we left.
At home I opened my cards from the boys and Bo and we had cake. And yes all three of them sang happy birthday to me. LOL! Most of my presents were coming in the mail. Bo ordered me more tools for my bench and other art supplies. I opened my parents presents sent to me the night before.
I had a great birthday celebration and I owe it all to my wonderful husband and boys who totally knew how to make my day special. :)
