Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Dinkin’ around….

painted chalkboardI love my chalkboard – it rates right up there with my clothesline, dress forms and misc. other spots that are fun to photograph.  When I saw this post, I was inspired to order the paints that she used.  So, yesterday, when I was suppose to be finding my ‘new normal’ – which really means for me…LIVING A DISCIPLINED LIFE, I decided that it was the perfect time to try out my new paints (a not-so-disciplined moment).  I wish I had a true gift for painting and drawing {maybe I do, but it just needs to be cultivated} because I find it very fun and relaxing – watercolor is my favorite for sure.

  2. Elaine,
    Looking at this website makes me miss you even more. You are so talented and I love how you write out your thoughts. loved the picture of your family and I must have passed by Lauren a dozen times thinking “how do I know that girl” 🙂
    Do you come down this way often? I would love to meet for coffee and catch up my dear friend.
    Love Denise
