June catchup...

I am finally out of bed and today was catchup day.
I got to hang out with my TeaBagGirls all day.
Just being up and about was stunning and I'm finally starting to feel more human.
Happy day!

Double vision

I'm seeing double for June.
It's harder than I was expecting.  I haven't felt like anything this month.
Being sick has pushed me off kilter and doing these gals when I'm so cold and under the weather...
has not been easy.    But pushing through.

My teabags were rough and a little hard to work on today.

Featured in the Rooibos Magazine...


My hubby was so proud of what I was doing on the TeaBags that he contact Rooibos Ltd about a year ago to tell them about my TeaBagGirls.  They wrote back to me and asked me and him to share a bit of the story.  So we did.

They shared my story in their Magazine.

I love that they call me the TeaBagGirl that paints on TeaBags.
It was a happy find.  I was searching the internet for a hashtag and accidentally came across it.
I can't figure out exactly when it was shared but I'm sure it was about a year ago when I was still doing 100Faces with Sharon Tomilson when I was still sending Rooibos TeaBags across the ocean.

Class is almost full....

My Tiny Bags of Love class is almost filled.  I can't thank you enough.  The love and messages have been overwhelming.

We didn't want it to be too big for my first time class, as I will be interacting a lot in the Facebook classroom.  That was important to me.  I want to feel connected to everyone, who is taking part in this little class.

It's our journey... mine as much as yours and I am looking so forward to growing with you through this time.

So I am sure there are still a few spots left, if you are keen.  I can assure you, the class members are a beautiful bunch already.

And off to the framers we go...

Batch No. 4

I can't tell you how hard I worked to catch up with my TeaBagGirls, this week.
So that I could stick to my schedule to drop off my next batch of 40 TeaBags for framing.

It's my 4th batch.  We are working in batches of 40.
So my next one is due on Tuesday, the 19th July.

I'm not getting behind schedule again.
Having my dates set up ahead of the time - definitely helps me stay focused.


They feel waify and like they have a story.
Definitely one of my favourites from this week.

June is double...

Double the effort, Double the love, Double the trouble.
I'm loving it.

Using a reference... Klimt inspired

I have a sweet little book with MotherDaughterLove images and poems.  And this was one of them.
To help keep me inspired and engaged for June, Jackie and I decided to do double or triple faces on our TeaBags.

I loved this piece.  I know it's my interpretation of Klimt but I'm in love with it.
I know I'm going to adore June already.

Gentle tenderness...

There is such a tenderness here.
Which I just love.  I filmed myself painting this.
But only half way - I will share it soon.
Seeing them come forward - is always delightful.

Class is open for registration...

Oh my goodness - I'm sooo excited because today registration opened.
For my Tiny Bags of Love class.

I'm nervous excited and really blown away by the excitement about this class.
It has totally meant the world to me.  I know I now have a beautiful job ahead of me...
of sharing my love for these sweetest Tiny Bags of Love.

And to be honest I can't wait to share this with you!

It's quite interesting where it starts to where it ends.
I've always love this process of an EvolutionofaPainting, but this time of a TeaBagGirl.

Each time I do one - it's completely different - I love it!

May is a wrap...

May was tough because in April I got a week behind and I have been lugging that around with me all through May.  I just couldn't catch up.  But I managed to pushed hard to finish May and transition into June.  I am happy to say I'm 100% back on track.

May has some of my favorite TeaBagGirls - I love the richer colors, deeper faces.

Being able to see  my progress from January until now - so encouraging.

Just keep painting...

Almost ready to hand in my next 40 gals.
And about to receive my next framed 40 back.

Seeing this project come together has been such a beautiful journey for me.

Mini workstation for the day...

My little workstation keeps moving around.
I have so much going on that I keep having to move my space.
but this was a happy space.

Just keep painting.
