My Friend JoycEE's Skills!

On Tuesday............Joyce, Brenda, Jadyn and I had a girls day out. We went to see Joyce's mural that she painted in the Dover Public Library. I had only seen pictures of it before so I have been wanting to go and see it in person and to see it in person is absolutely breathtaking! I can't imagine painting or drawing anything on that grand of a scale.............or standing on scaffolding to paint it. I'm just i awe.................................

Being her usual little ornery self! I love this pic.........LOL


Brenda and JoycEE strike a pose in front of the chilren's mural. It's pure magic!


JoycEE, Jadyn and I.........


What a magical place to read a book!


JoycEE and Jadyn.........=D When Jadyn first laid eyes on the first mural and I was pointing out all the things in the mural to her, she said, "WOW JoycEE! Good Job!" We giggled over that one. It was just too cute the way she said it!


We then left the library to eat lunch. After that was a stop at the new material shop in New Philadelphia, then off to Riverfront Antique Mall to look for vintage goodies. JoycEE used to work there and she guided Brenda, Jadyn and I to all the interesting booths! Antique mall rules are that all small children must be strapped into their strollers, so the whole time Jadyn was saying, "I want out. Help me.......JoycEE help me!" We giggled until we almost peed our pants! LOL

What a fun day! Next time, we're going to go visit Brenda and she's going to show us all the awesome places that she likes to shop at and of course a stop at Starbucks!!!!! I can't wait to go!

Until then...................

Sure thing Pam! Isn't it gorgeous?! Seein git in person and up close and looking at all the detail in it just makes your jaw drop............you can see why Jadyn said what she did! lol

I'm sure that JoycEE is so appreciative of your lovely comments. I think I see her standing in the corner blushing..........=8)

Awww Nana!
I had so much fun with you, Jadyn and Brenda that day! I'm so happy you all enjoyed seeing the murals too! I really do appreciate all the lovely compliments from you and everyone else....but you're right, I'm definitely standing over here in the corner blushing. I'm not one to feel very comfortable in the spotlight. I can think of so many other talented people who deserve the attention much more than me.

Anyway...thank you for sharing my work with others...I really appreciate it. : )

I can't wait until our next "Girl's Day Out"! I just know we'll have a blast!

Hugs,
Joycee

Brenda said...

Yup, didn't we laugh a bunch?! Oh, I was at the nursing home today, and a little resident said, "help me.." and I giggled.. reminded me of Jadyn, lol..

Joycee's work is amazing!! How cool to see that up close and personal! (None of my art work is on the square in my town -- or in the library-- but we can scout around here too!)

love you guys!!
xxoo
