#93 - Make an abstract painting

So today the weather outside is gorgeous, and thought that I would like to do something outside today. So I went to Michaels and bought a canvas and some paint, so I can make my abstract painting…. outside. It was really fun, and felt good to do something for me and get some fresh air :)Can’t wait for it to dry so I can get it framed, and hang it up in my scrapbook room!

Hi everybody! So I have never had a blog before, so this is all very new to me. I started because of the Project 101, where you make a list of 101 things you want to do in 1001 days. A lot of people have made a blog for their list, and I thought I would try to. Any advice or ideas, let me know!
