Standing Under The Plum Tree




My friend the organization Guru can't come for the plum harvest so I'm sending her a box in the mail. I just could not resist yesterday, WOW, I remember it was one of those days when you have inspiration flashing before you and trying to bounce from one thing to another. I stayed cool with it and with the fact that I could not do it all. But I did manage to go out early and pick some plums and take some pictures to send to my friend. She won't be coming to stand under the tree and eat so I mailed some to her. I am suppose to visit her next and I can't seem to have a free weekend to do that.



We are going to paint on cardboard when I go and she is waiting for her lesson. So, when I got to the office and looked for a plum shipping box. I found the most perfect tall skinny box and then had to just jump in and paint a plum tree on it. My other friend Susan had just the day before left me some Folk Art paints that she didn't want....she is organizing and they were ...not new and she told me they would need stirring. They did but they were the perfect colors to paint a plum shipping box.
I am thrilled with all the comment sign ups for a free spot in my next class. I spent some time yesterday between painting the box and taking care of clients getting the videos edited. Still have a ways to go.
If you haven't left your comment for the drawing, it is not too late. Just go to the next post to do that.
Thank you all, I love hearing from you and have such good intentions of making it around to all of your blogs. That is on my weekend list of fun things to do.

  5. Our plum tree has fruit but it isn't ready for picking. Your plum tree box is wonderful, filled with plums or not.
