I absolutely LOVE #24. Can't wait!!! And as for #62 - please just get a temporary one. :)

Jill said...

We'll have to do it soon, Patti! :) And as for #62...you sound like Mom ;) Still not 100% sure about that one, so it might end up being temporary!

Thanks Linds! Looking forward to all the great things I'll be doing with family & friends!!

I think I will have to try this list too - may take a few days. Maybe one can be help someone get started painting.

Jill said...

That would be killing 2 birds with one stone, Cheryl - you get to cross something of your list, and I cross something off mine! I hope that one day I can join you & Shannon for a lesson!
