I normally enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, but I don't usually feel like I NEED it to wake up or function.

Today is different. I need. Sigh...we have 4 different sizes of ants in our house, and the teeniest ones for some reason were in my bed last night, mostly on my pillow and then in my hair... The students are on break, too, so a bunch of the boys were over till 3 am watching movies with a light on, and the fan in our bedroom was get the point...not a good night. goes on. We are taking a trip to Jakarta next week to renew the kids' passports, so there are lots of things that need to get done before we go. (cue "Break my Stride," my recent theme song...and pray that I don't burn myself out!) I have a recent obsession with chair stamps.....this stamp is from Impression Obsession - it's Garden Patio Set. I used some other stamps and sets to create the watercolored scene, after masking the chair and table with a frisket. Other stamps are from the Garden Fence Set (cobble stones, stamped with Adirondack Slate ink) and Leaves and Garlands (flowers and grass in the background, stamped in chalk ink onto spritzed watercolor paper).

I love that stripe background too, by Basic Grey, but can't figure out for the life of me why they made the stripes crooked. Grrrr. Here's a close-up version where you can see the Diamond Glaze on the tabletop...if you look very hard you may be able to see me with laptop and my cup of coffee too! :) Have a good one.............
