I spent my weekend thrifting, researching, and restocking The Shop. One thing we bought was a Homer Winslow print titled "In The Mowing". I never took any art history or art appreciation courses in high school or college, so all I knew in making the purchase was that Winslow was a famous artist. What I learned in the research is that he was largely self-taught and considered one of the most influential American artists of his time. He did pencil sketches, oil on canvas, and ultimately watercolors - and it was with the watercolors that he truly made his name. So now I know a little bit about Homer Winslow.
I didn't do any LOAD layouts for Saturday or Sunday. And as it turns out, I was just fine with it. I have accomplished a lot this month - with all the layouts needed to complete Rachel & Becca's K-6 School of Life albums and a lot of other stories told as well. So I was perfectly content to create this layout with Krystal Hartley's new "Fresh" kit. I actually went outside and took the photo just to create the layout!
And then, just for fun, I made this page for my planner:
