I just couldn't stop writing about small things I love! I've been sick and have been craving to write for quite sometime. But nothing struck me. So I took a baby step and I'm glad I did. It made me smile and gave me warm fuzzies that made me feel so loved! :)

I've finally completed the glass paintings: one of a lady and another abstract. I'm working on a still life oil painting and a flower with watercolor paints now. I'll put up photos of my glass paintings tomorrow! :)

What are those small things that make you smile in the midst of a bad day?
