A quick glance ...

.... into a most delightful week.

I arrived in Wisconsin late Sunday afternoon, after an uneventful flight, just in time for brats for dinner.

First thing we did was head down to Terri's basement to figure out what projects we were going to start on. Cheryl from Ten Seconds Studio asked both of us to make a canvas for the fundraiser she does in October benefiting breast cancer research. Of course we accepted and that was our first task to accomplish. Keep watching 10SS blog for details on the fundraiser ... here's just a teeny piece of our canvases in their beginning stages.


Canvases complete ... now for our woodburning projects. These were to keep us busy on the ferry ride across Lake Michigan.

Tuesday Morning we packed up our bags, our wood burnt pieces and we were off to Ludington, Michigan to visit Dawn and David.

We colored all the way across the lake .....

Dawn and David met us at the dock and we headed straight to the local brewery in downtown where we had dinner on the patio and a few great local beers.
If you're ever traveling to Ludington, Michigan be sure to stay at the Viking Arms Inn ... Dawn and David are the best of hosts. Dawn had a bag of local goodies (i.e. fudge, chocolate, honey, postcards, maple syrup to mention a few) waiting for each of us .... and I must add that they've got some of the most comfortable beds for their guests!
Next morning we were up early ready to hit the town. We spent the day strolling the little shops downtown and checking out the locals ....

and the self portraits on the beach ....

Thanks Dawn and David for such a fabulous time!
Next morning it was time to get back on the ferry and return to Appleton. We had things to color, but we were more interested in napping on that leg of the trip, so the colored pencils stayed packed away .... until we got home .....
Then it was back to the basement .... the woodburners and colored pencils came out again ...
Here's a few pictures of what we did ....
And meet the girls ......


Good times with great friends!!
