It has been a while again since I have been on PB.  We sold our house and moved.  It was such a stressful time and then settling in our new home has kept me very busy.  But the best part of this is that I now have my own small area in which I can paint.  No more using my kitchen or dining room table.   :)   I also found a framer who is willing to work with me and frame my paintings without charging an arm and a leg.  :yippee:

I hope I haven't missed too much and will be getting back into the swing of things soon.  I want to start painting again too.

 :) Hi MaryLou. Moving is a lot of hard work but can be so worth it. What a bonus that you have your own space to do your art now.  :D It's nice to see you back on PB.  :1hug:

MaryLou 

YAY, you are back. We have missed you.

We continue to cheer each other along.  Val is still the head cheerleader, but she's getting competition from the young-uns.

Look forward to seeing your work again.

:yippee: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :yippee:         Too funny, thanks Mea!  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

 :bigwelcome: Welcome home Nina! I don't envy anyone doing the land based move.  :think: That sounds like it could be a new dance craze! Doing the 'land based move'  :dance:    :2funny:   At least when I move we just take the whole house!  :2funny:
Glad all went well and you are settling in. Keep your priorities straight....set up the studio first!  >:D

Look forward to seeing your many soon to be magnificent pieces! Be seeing you soon....  :coolsmiley:     :-*
Cheers, Val

Thank you so much or the warm welcome back!  I agree Mea, Val  has been our best cheerleader but I will certainly look for those young ones!  Any encouragement is always such a blessing!  Great to be back. I hope to be getting into some painting soon.  Doing some warm up pieces at the moment. 

(Psst Val, this is Mary Lou, not Nina, but I will take the welcome back anyway!!   :2funny: _)

So glad to see you back on PB, Mary Lou (and I have to admit, sometimes I think you're Nina like Val because of your avator name - njngirl!!) Mazel tov on the new home with your own studio!! And finding a framer to work with you for a good price is a real bonus.

Can't wait to see what you create from your new painting place!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Oh crap!  :doh: I can't believe I'm still doing it after these years! I always used to mix you to up! It has got to be that wacky old bird from my file cabinet! Just ask Patricia!  ::)

Apologies, love you to bits even if you're not Nina, ninja, whatever......   :2funny:     :-*
