click on the article photos and I am the one painting. You can see my new embrodiered gear.

Hubby is out now getting the printed copy. I hope I am there!

Funny thing is, I was joking with the photographer and told him that no double chins were allowed. He did good!

Thanks! I am so happy about it and it was in the printed version as well. The design was about half of a tropical sunset. Pink, orange, yellow then blue. Add island, palm trees, birds and dophins to taste. LOL

Awesome, Metina... looks so professional and your setup is nice. I like how you keep your sponges, looks like something I need to look into. What kind of tray do you keep your paints in?

It is a bead holder I got from Wal-mart for about $6. I love it. At first I thought it was a bit deep, but now see how having the paint a little bit lower keeps things neat. Makes getting the sponges in a bit harder, but it works.

It has a nice lid that I cut off at the hinges with an exacto knife. It still fits, though doesn't lock, but a simple band around it will keep it secure.

I hope to get up the courage to rainbow cakes in it. I have a couple with two colors and one with three, but I just haven't got up the nerve to smooch in my pastel and neon cakes that I use constantly. I don't want to effect my speed. It will come.
