|I wonder if it's the memory of painting the roses red that drew me to this hair pin?|
Though I no longer pretend to paint roses, I do paint something else. For the past few months, I have painted a summary of the week using wet paint brushes and real paint.

My mom was the first to see a painted calender at Lovely World. She liked the idea and wanted our family to do something like it for 2011. We collected art supplies, divided five sheets of paper into seven sections, and painted our week. I loved this time to be creative.
As we continued painting our weeks, Middle Sister and Youngest Sister lost steam. They both enjoyed doing it a few times, but didn't like the idea of doing it for the rest of the year.
My mom let Middle Sister and Youngest Sister go to Barbie world and, since I still enjoyed it, encouraged me to keep painting a summary of the weeks on my own.
So I got out paints and one sheet of paper. I didn't mind doing it alone. While creating I am too busy thinking to do much speaking.
I have decided to post a picture of my calender painting each week. I am hoping this accountability will help me keep painting the week a habit.
