I wanted to share our family with all of you! Bill and I have three sons, three daughter-in-laws, and three granddaughters. All here at the park on Memorial Day Weekend! We are grateful for each of us and the fact that we could all be together this weekend. And, we remember those who went before us and whose essence we inherited and share. They were probably "with" us in some way as we splashed, laughed, joked and shared our lives. Just as they did once upon a time, when life was thiers to celebrate.

Not having money to decorate does not mean you can't have great looking walls! I found some old cabinet doors at a salvage store. These had large frames with narrow recessed middles. I painted the insides a solid color, then used plastic and styrofoam cups as guides to create circles within (pour paint on a paper plate, spread, dip the cup into it, then dab the cup on the space you want to begin painting). Not knowing what I was doing (this is not unusual for me when I begin a project), I painted a little, looked a little, repainted a little, etc. till I had a design that looked good at a distance. Using a level, hammer, nails, and existing holes in the cabinet backs, I put them up on the wall in a creative way. It worked! I LOVE free stuff!

Over Mother's Day Weekend, Bill and I 'teen-sat' for our granddaughter, Mabry! What a time we had! We visited an art museum and then applied art to her walls and re-designed her room. I found out that Mabry is very creative, loved my ideas and had many of her own. We bonded through art! Notice the framed work. It was orginally a thrown away oil painting of a purple iris on a yellow background. We painted the whole frame and painting white and started over. The purple circle of swirls in the middle is painted with glow-in-the-dark paint! (Mabry's idea) The Zebra soft sculpture below the mirror ball is an Audrey Schultz original from the Kentucky Market. Mabry turns 13 soon and will have a summer sleepover in her new room! Bill says VaVa (me) cannot go! (To see what I do with my art, visit our website: jamisonbrumm.com)

I saw this young man in the store yesterday and had to ask for his picture! Isn't he a doll? I salute my three boys, who at this age were just as adorable! Well, you moms out there know what i mean... You love them no matter what age they are, as they love you no matter how imperfect YOU are! Love is amazing--and all that really matters!

Thank you, son! Bill and I have a NEW website with all the bells and whistles, thanks to our son, Drew! He helped us use 'google sites' to set up a site where we can put all our works for sale, provide the user with information on us, and the best part--I CAN UPDATE IT MYSELF! If you want to check out what art fairs we are in, or what shops sell our work, there are links to these events and places!!! Drop us a line and let us know how you are doing (contact page!). Thanks, friends, we hope to see you soon!
