I have been so so so incredibly busy.  I know, I say that a lot but it is always true.  I live a crazy, fun life.  But this week is especially busy and soon I will have a very special announcement to explain why.  I'm hoping by this weekend I can tell you what I've been up to... you will never-ever guess.

But in the meantime, I thought I 'd share some Everyday Art from my phone.  Starting from the top, left to right:

1)  I had to take a picture of this because my brother's name is Eddie, which is a really uncommon name, and he is an uncle.  Then when I checked out, guess what the checker's name was?  Eddie!  It was weird.

2)  This is my finished canvas from Brave Girls Art A La Carte class called "I have An Idea."  It's a really easy project, but you learn some interesting techniques with paint and other media.  I love how it turned out and it only took about 3 days, including drying time.

3) It's Fall and that means pomegranate season.  And I happen to work for an "ag" business.  And this pomegranate was brought back all the way from a huge pomegranate farm in Southern CA.  And I happen to be an expert at opening pomegranates because we grew them on our farm.  And I ate the whole thing.  And it was yummy.

4)  Did you know Jujube's are a real food and not just the multi-colored candies that you buy at the movie theater and they are so sticky and chewy that they can lift out your fillings?  Ok smartypants, I didn't know!  But they had tubs of them at Whole Foods last week and I was sooo tempted to buy them just to see what I could do with them.  But I knew it was going to be a busy week so I passed.  Maybe they will be there again next week.  I still don't know what they are exactly... a nut?  A fruit?  A vegetable?

Don't be so busy that you forget to stop and wonder at the little things!
