It is about time that I write a post here for my devoted pineapple paintbrush readers!  I am grateful for those of you that keep stopping by and also for those who have recently purchased my PDF, it sure means a lot to me!  It has been silent around here for a while and I just wanted to let you know that I am still around!  It has been probably the craziest year of my life.  9 months ago I gave birth to my 4th boy!  Also, we outgrew our little house and decided to build our new house which became my "art project" for the year.  It was quite the ordeal and did not leave me much time for any other projects.  We have been in the house now for a few months and life is finally calm again.  We are beginning to finish a room over our garage which will be my art studio, and my kids play room too.  I can't wait to get it done and to have more space to paint!  I was blown away tonight as I logged into this blog for the first time in months and saw how many hits I am receiving everyday.  It is encouraging!  For those of you out there that are interested in having me teach another online art class please let me know by leaving a comment.  Perhaps if there is enough interest I might be persuaded!  Here are some recent pictures for fun.

My boys:)

                                                                             Building our house

Finally feeling settled in our new house.  Yes that is snow in October, gotta love Utah!

                                                  We are still making time to paint.

Which is always crazy messy and fun!

 Thanks for checking in, I hope 2012 has been a great year for you!  Please feel free to comment and let me know if you are interested in having me post another online art class:).  Happy New Year!


  1. I would love another online art class for this summer. Last time we lived in a small apt and were not able to join in. We not have a house and room to do things. Plus, but buy is 5 and I think he would really enjoy this. He loves art. I am glad to see you posting again! Your boys are adorable.

  2. I would love for you to do another art class. I still have fun memories of doing the last one with my boys! (I also have four, then we finally had a baby girl :))

  3. I would love another online art class. My kids and I really enjoyed the last one.

    Congrats on your new baby and new house!

  4. I would definitely love another class! My youngest would now be old enough to participate so I would have three very happy kids!

  5. Oh yes, yes, please! I would LOVE to participate in another one of your art classes! We still cherish the pieces we created during the last one and have enjoyed experiementing with some of the projects again! I'd love some fresh inspiration!

  6. Please do another art class! We would love to participate!

  8. I would love an online art class!

  9. I would LOVE another art class, but with 4 little kids of my own I have no idea how you'll pull that off. :) I bought 2 last time and have given out the "extra" classes you gave us as gifts to friends per your suggestion - everyone has LOVED them! Even if you don't manage to do another one, know that you've helped so many already! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with so many! And if you do end up doing another one - count us in. :)
